Idayls Baptism

Hello, beautiful people!

This week was superb. Wanna know why?


We've been working really closely with her for the past couple of months, and yesterday she was baptized. It's been so cool to see her progress. She is one of my favorite people in the world and I'm so proud of her!

The baptism was so great. Wanna know why?


Yes, our good friend Edward. A recent convert of a month and half. He is now a worthy, steadfast priesthood holder. He is a great leader here in our branch in Boston. 

It was total bliss to see the lives of two people I've come to love so dearly be blessed by the Gospel. The Gospel is so true! The best moment of yesterday was right after Idalys came up out of the water, Edward goes, 


Hahaha I will quote that kid for days. 

To celebrate, Hermana Bybee and I went to Idalys' house and set a baptismal date with  her grandma, Luz, and her brother, Isaiah! They'll be baptized in three weeks on the 8th of November. They all came to the baptism, along with Idalys' aunt, Angelica. I love how the church truly does bring families together. 

In other news, we had exchanges this week with the Portuguese sisters. I went to the Portuguese program with Sister Knutti and we had an adventurous day, which included the following:

1. Setting a baptismal date with Maria, AKA "Gugu"
2. Giving service at a Senior Center for Cape Verdeans... We danced with them. It was one of those infinite moments.
3. Getting terribly lost in Dorchester
4. Contacting TONS of people

It was a great exchange and I learned a lot. I am really grateful I can serve as a Sister Training Leader. I've learned so much from the incredible sisters in our zone. What a privilege it is. 

Well, I love you all! All is well in Zion! Hahaha but really, the mission is so wonderful. I testify that when we are willing to make sacrifices to our Lord, the blessings that come are more precious and of more worth than anything we could ever give him. The Lord truly is a God of miracles.

A Living Prophet


We are seriously so blessed to have a living prophet! Thomas S. Monson is truly a man of God! 
I loved getting to watch General Conference in Spanish. At the beginning of the Saturday morning session, I said a silent prayer that I'd be able to understand the Spanish, and I did! I really do believe God blesses me with the gift of tongues and interpretation every single day here! 

He is so good to me! 

Right now we have a LOT of investigators we are working closely with. We have four baptismal dates coming up in the next two months. I am praying so hard that everything goes according to plan. Idalys, Isaiah, Juan, and Rene. I love these people so much. What a tender mercy it is to be filled with the pure love of Christ! 

God really is so good to me. 

I really feel so blessed to have been able to listen to General Conference this weekend. I loved President Uchtdorf's talk about the simplicity of the Gospel. It truly is simple, and we really should "Simplify our discipleship." God really does trust His children to carry forth this week. I loved hearing the testimonies of the three new apostles called. I know they are really called of God! 

God is good. 


Happy, happy week! And happy fall!

PS: Fall in Boston is magical. Thought you'd want to know.

Dear Family & Friends, 


Transfers were this week. 
I am staying with Hermana Bybee. 

There is a new elder here in the Boston Spanish branch. His name is Elder Davis and he's adorable. He just came straight from the Mexico MTC and Elder Villar is training him. He's a champ. A super hard worker with a great attitude. We are really happy to be working with him. 

This week was superb here in Boston. We are working really closely with a beautiful family. Luz Sanchez, and her granchildren, Idalys, Isaiah, and Alex. They came to church on Sunday and Idalys and Isaiah have committed to being baptized on October 18th! :) 

So, something I really wanted to write home about this week was a section in the Doctrine and Covenants. In every missionary meeting we have, each of us stand up and recite this section in D&C together. "O ye that EMBARK in the service of God, see that ye serve him with all your heart, might, mind, and strength, that ye may stand blameless before God at the last day." 
It's a powerfully spiritual experience every time, to see us all standing as one, stating our purpose as missionaries. 

This is the 2015 Youth Theme in the church... And it is my hope that people are taking this theme seriously!!! 

Last night, Hermana Bybee and I had the privilege of attending a Youth Fireside with Idalys :) President Holmes, the Young Men's General President, came and spoke. There were youth from all over New England gathered to listen and it really felt like an army of God had assembled to receive guidance from him. The Spirit there was tangible. 

President Holmes taught us about our identity as SONS and DAUGHTERS of God. He taught us of our divinity and our potential... That we can truly come to be like our Father in Heaven is. After teaching about our identity... He taught us about our purpose.

When we are baptized and confirmed as members of this church, with make a COVENANT, or a sacred promise, with God that we will take upon ourselves the name of Jesus Christ. Each day, when we go to school, or to work, or out on the town, or wherever it may be, who do we represent? Are we living our lives in a way that, by a stranger, we would be recognized as a DISCIPLE of Jesus The Christ? 

Think about it. 

When we were baptized, we covenanted with our Lord that we would EMBARK in His service... Are we all living in such a way that we serve him with all our "heart, might, mind and strength?" Are we consecrated to our Heavenly Father? Can we put him before all else? Before facebook, instagram, twitter, trends, make-up, clothing, shoes, cars, television, friends.... Are we putting our Lord first? 

It's an interesting concept. I think the GREATEST way to EMBARK in the service of God is by preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ to EVERY CREATURE. Embarking in such a great cause, in the cause of saving human souls, is the greatest thing I have ever done in my life. I have a long way to go, but I testify that this is the most important thing any of us could ever do. 

So, my challenge to you all (especially you young folks) is to EMBARK. 
Share His gospel. 
Do it with all the energy of your heart. 
I promise, the blessings that will come are beyond anything you could imagine. 
They are eternal blessings. 

I love you all!

Best Birthday/Week EVER!


I have the best companion in the world!!! For my birthday last week, we went APPLE PICKING! We went to Honey Pot Hill Farms and picked apples with some of my favorite missionaries in the mission. It was such a happy day. It really felt like fall! 

Hermana Bybee and I are staying together for another transfer!!! I AM SO HAPPY! This is the first companion I will be with for more than 2 transfers. We have seen so many miracles together here in Boston! 

This week was solid. We went on a double exchange (allow me to explain)! Sister Bybee and I are the Sister Training Leaders in our zone, so we go on exchanges with all the sisters here. This week, we did two in a row! On Tuesday, Sister Holt (Boston English Sister) came to the Spanish area with me and we were so blessed! We found two new investigators together! :) Then, that night, we exchanged with the Portuguese Sisters. Sister Marques came with me on Wednesday and we also had a fabulous day. Miracles really do happen on exchanges! The sisters in our zone are phenomenal missionaries. I feel really blessed that I have been given the privilege of getting to go on exchanges with them for the past three months. I learn so much from them each time. They are truly some of the greatest, most talented missionaries in the world. Even though it was  

We are finding new investigators left and right. They are all over the place. We are currently teaching 18 people and they are all progressing! The Lord is hastening His work here in Boston in preparation of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. I am so blessed to be a part of it! 

Shout out to Jessica for being a Homecoming Attendant (or whatever they're calling it these days). You are still the most beautiful girl I know!

I love you all! The church is so true! Press forward, my fellow Americans!
