Dzień Dobry!!

January 16

Oh man what a week!!!! I have to say i do like opening cities!! It is just full of adventure! First of all you never really know where you are going. But it is an experience to behold seeing to sister missionaries outside freezing dont exactly know where they are but trying to share the gospel! Oh how great it is being a missionary!! I seriously love it!! And i especially love the little branch in Lublin!

Recently we just had branch council to figure out what we can do to help the branch be strengthened and to grow. After the meeting I just felt so good about the plan and God’s plan for the branch in Lublin. I know that he does watch over his children.

I also just love my companion Siosra Clingo. She is just amazing!! We just have fun in the moments! Even though it is really freezing like -20 c that is still ok we just go for it and find!! hahaha Becuase ” the worth of souls are great in the sight of God!” And we have a lot of fun outside because Siostra Clingo is from California!! So we just acted like little kids when we play with the snow! And jus this past week we made our first Snow Angels!!!! It was a moment of pure happiness hahaha

I hope everyone has had a really good new year so far!! I still cannot believe that it is 2017 but that means change! Change to be a better person! Change to be the best self that you can be becuase Heavenly Father always sees the sucesses! And we are here to learn. I am so grateful for that! I love this gospel. This is his true church. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and he is the Master Healer.

Kocham was!

Things that have happened already in Lublin:

I am in Lublin lots of history! VERY CATHOLIC CITY. REALLY.

There has not been sisters in Lublin in 11 years. CUD!! (miracle)

This sunday we were a little surprise for the branch and they were just so happy!! we got invited to dinner already hahahaha the members are calling it a miracle that there are sisters in Lublin again so we are going to try our hardest!!

BOMBS GOING OFF (czyli (in other words) fireworks) no worries we were safe

Went to a Catholic mass on sunday!! Was a really great experience to really know more about the polish people. Because that is a HUGE part in there culture.

babcias (grandmas) here are so adorable

Cannot believe that it is 2017

Almost lost my companion on the bus two times!! she was on the bus and as i got off the bus doors shut quickly but luckily they opened again. Then we went on a bus the next day and right as we were about to get off sister Clingo gets off and the doors slammed in my face  while sister Clingo was outside hahahaha it almost left but we pushed the doors back open hahahaha and I got off with my companion.

So far it has been so great!! Miracles are going to be happening in Lublin!!

I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father I just have so much thanks. I love my Heavenly Father with all my heart and his Son Jesus Christ and his sacrifice. I love his gospel and am grateful that as missionaries we get to share his message.

​So this is Babcia i dziadek (grandma and grandpa) They invited us to a wigilia which is Christmas eve dinner and the reason why they did it so early was because there daughter lives in the states with her husband and they are Mormon. and they came to visit. So Babcia and Dziadek invite us every week for lunch because they want us to feel warm and welcomed and they help us missionaries so much! I love them so much!! and this is dziadek pretending he is an Indian hahaha!!!

Oh wow hello!!

What a crazy couple of weeks!! A bunch of miracles!
I love our little branch in Wrocław. It is such a special city. There is really something special here in Wrocław. I can just feel the Love that Heavenly Father has for these people.
Just this last weekend we had a Relief Society activity with the sisters in the branch. And the feeling being with these amazing sisters honestly brought tears to my eyes. These sisters are so strong and really do have a foundation in Christ. There testimonies of this gospel strengthens mine. The spirit in the room as we all gathered together was beautiful! There are good things coming to Wrocław i can feel it!!
I am so grateful for the wonderful members that I have met here in Poland. each and ever one of them are miracles and lights. They try so hard and really share the gospel anytime they can with people that they meet. They are miracles.
We also got a new investigator!! And she is really amazing so sweet and nice. God really does prepare people. And when they are ready they will listen. God is really preparing something wonderful in Wrocław!!
I hope everyone will have a great week!
