14January 2013

It sounds like everyone is busy with life and all the fun that comes along with it! I have started to apply to schools. weird!!!! But it has to be done! But this week has been crazy but great! Hermana Earl is from st.George Utah but originally from Pennsylvanian. She is spunky and full of fun. Her Spanish is great! She has been studying it for 9 years. and it is great! But we are working hard together to help her get accustomed to the field and to help her be confident in teaching. We have some amazing new investigators right now that are progressing and they want their whole family to be learning with them. one of them is a little scared to talk about it with her husband but she loves coming to church and she feels that it is true and wants it so bad. we have one on date right now that we are excited about and it was a miracle on date too! We are seeing miracles here and it is great to see just how much God is blessing this area! Okay so we had to go home early one night because of some stomach pains I was having. I think it has to do with my sugar problem. but anyway I will be seeing a doctor some time in the future about it. and hopefully have a definite answer. It was not the first time I have been having this pain off and on now for about 6 to 7 weeks. It just happened to be really bad that night. So I will keep you updated on that. I love you all! Con mucho amor, Hermana Ziegler

Okay so this last week was great! Sister Sanchez and I learned so much with each other. and how to really follow the spirit and communicate what we are feeling! It was great! We taught a couple last night that are great! They are really open to hearing the message that we bring and listened and understood most of what we shared. sadly when we invited them to set a baptism date they did not understand what we were asking. so we are hoping to invite them again in our next lesson. Our investigators are progressing, and little by little are coming to an understanding of the importance of the message we share. I had an experience of translating English into Spanish yesterday. it was interesting. it was not perfect but it still went great! The woman was very grateful and kept saying how blessed she was to have sister Sanchez and I in her life. It was one of our investigators. She is so sweet. I love her! Okay so you had better be sitting down. got transfer calls last night and I was just about floored. I am going to be training!!!!!! I am still in shock about it but wow!!! I'm training!!!!!! I will have to tell you my new companions name next week. because I find out tomorrow! Yeah!!!!! So everything is going great here. I have not asked yet about the dentist but I will be later this week. Con mucho amor, Hermana Ziegler

So this week has been great! Talking with you on Christmas was great! And thank you so much for all the great advise. I got your package a day late. Thank you so much! I love the little predicad me evangelio. It is great! I also love the presents from Mariah and family. they are great and I am using them. well the journal in awhile but I will be using it. Okay so this week has been great! Some of our lessons did not happen but when ever that happened we seemed to have a miracle. we met someone we otherwise would not have. We met a woman the other day who is a former investigator. who when I was here before was not ready. but when we knocked on her door she came out crying and told us how for the last month all she has been thinking about is coming back to church and how she wants her husband to learn as well so that he can understand why she wants to come back so much. It was amazing to see the difference in her and I feel that she is ready to hear more of the gospel and to have it in her life now. And then we are teaching people who are more and more prepared. one of the people we are teaching wants to be baptized but won't set a date. because she wants to tell all her kids the wonderful news of her learning more about God and so that they can come to her baptism. She is so cute. we then invited her to pick a date and pray about it. to see what God wants for her. and She will do it. She loves the gospel, and the members. She has come to church every week since we have started teaching her. It is so great. and the Members here are great. they want to do all they can to help us out, and they have missionary experiences of their own. it is so great to be here and to be able to see how much this area has grown. So I had my lab work done on Friday and I go in on Thursday to hopefully go over the results of said tests. I want an answer to all of this so I can finally know what I need to do to be the healthiest I can be. Well I will keep you updated on what is going on and hope all is well. I was given a blessing so I know it will all be alright. It is great to hear that you had a great time and that everyone is doing well. Love you all and hope that your new year is amazing! Love, Hermana Ziegler
