Week 16-Open your mouth and be a member missionary!

Hello everyone!
This week was great great great with so many miracles!!
Our stake this month has a goal and it's called new member September!! This goal is that our stake has 20 baptisms this month, that means 2 baptisms for each ward. We have been working so hard to find people that are being prepared to be baptized, and the Lord is blessing us and our ward so much for our efforts! Example: We got a call from a member in our ward that said he would be bringing in a friend to the visitors center for us to teach. The investigator literally just walked in the door for us to teach! There is so much power in the members doing missionary work!! And they are so much more likely to stay in the church after baptism if they have a friend at the church!
That's what we want, people who can come to church and feel like they are at home, that they are welcome there. So your challenge for this week is to be a good member missionary!! Welcome people you haven't seen before at church and talk with your friends about the gospel! It sometimes feels weird to talk about church with people, but it has changed your life, and made you happier (at least it has for me:) So, don't you want to help your friends be happier too?:) it really can change lives!! So don't be afraid, just open your mouth:)
We have had awesome miracles all week and it has just strengthened my testimony so much of the simple truth that this really is the Lord's work and he knows the best way to do it.  If we trust him and let him lead us, we will be successful.
To quote one of my favorite hymns (hymn 97)
     "I was not ever thus, nor pray’d that thou
     Shouldst lead me on.
     I loved to choose and see my path; but now,
     Lead thou me on!"
I usually like to plan everything, but like this verse says, the
Lord's way is so much better, and he will lead us if we trust him.
So trust the Lord, and remember, all is well and God is good:)
Love you all! Thanks for all your prayers!!

"Ask the missionaries, they can help you!!" Haha sister Morgan and I matching at the visitors center! I found out through another sisters blog that last week was "Spirit Week" at the VC.  (Throwback to High School).  They had different activities each day and one was "matching day".  Each day they also studied a similar topic.  Hence the matching outfits!

Some more sisters at the VC! (Right to left: sisters hunt, Rowley, Helmbold, Crockett and me!

Sister Wilky and I! She's adorable:)
