Cafe Rio Can "Make" a Mission!!

August 22, 2014

I love Missionary Momma's!! A very sweet fellow MM, living in Fayetteville NC made Elder Beach Cafe Rio tonight for dinner! We are grateful for her willingness to do this despite having knee surgery recently and trying to prepare her 2nd grade classroom for school next week. She sent me these great pics! I love seeing my boy! We love you Elder Parker Beach and Jena Mendoza Salazar and Family!! Thank you so much!!!

"So my family (mostly husband) had the great opportunity to make Cafe Rio's delicious sweet pork taco salad. Elder Beach had the biggest smile on his face as soon as he realized what he was about to eat. He was in good spirits and we had a great discussion over dinner. I am so grateful to have had this opportunity. I know that there are so many MM's who take good care of my son in the Nebraska Omaha Mission and I am blessed to be able to pay it forward."

My son just got off work and got the leftovers.  He LOVED IT J

I am seriously so happy for what the Salazars did!  It really made my mission. It was great!  It tasted pretty close to it too!  It was funny they were asking Elder Jensen and I how to make the plates and what not.

Hump Day Week Full of Miracles

We've had a great week. Full of Miracles.

Wednesday we were biking down Rosehill and I saw a man with his daughter walking down the street. He looked familiar.

As we got closer to him. I realized it was JASON! A little background, Jason was an investigator we taught when we were in a trio in Spring Lake. He and his wife Julie were taking the discussions and pretty close to baptism. But they fell of the grid. We could not get in contact with them no matter what. 

So when I noticed it was Jason, I was like Elder Rawlings it's Jason! and at that time he had no idea who Jason was. 

We bike to catch up with Jason and we talk, sure enough he remembers me. 

We talked for a bit and got his new address. Then stopped by the next day and re-taught the Restoration. Then at the end of the lesson they committed to a new baptismal date! It was such a miracle. My "hump" day was just full of fun and lessons. I loved it.

Days to GO!!!

A Few Pics and Facebook Posts

July 2014

I got a flat while riding our bikes about a mile away and we had to get home so our dinner appointment could pick us up. So I had to carry my bike.

As missionaries, we learn really how important it is to follow up. In Preach My Gospel it uses a great analogy on why we should follow up
"Extending an invitation without following up is like beginning a journey without finishing it or buying a ticket to a concert without going into the theater. Without the completed action, the commitment is hollow."

Having a rough day? This quote can help!

 Couldn't have said it any better!

 Where are you willing to go?

 Serve with all your heart, might, mind and strength!

Oh yeah. I bought a new suit at a thrift store last Monday for $20, it was a Chaps.. So why not!? :) The pants just need a little fitting...

If you treat an individual as he is, he will stay as he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he could be and ought to be, he will become what he ought to be.

It all begins with our desires.

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
These principles are the great antidotes to the fears that rob us of our strength and sometimes knock us down to defeat. They give us power.
What power? The power of the gospel, the power of truth, the power of faith, the power of the priesthood.

This was something Elder Rawlings pointed out to me the other day.
 I thought it was really great!
" I am called of God.
My authority is above that of the kings of the earth. By revelation I have been selected as a personal representative of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is my Master and he has chosen me to represent him. To stand in his place, to say and do what he himself would say and do if he personally were ministering to the very people he has sent me. My voice is his voice, and my acts are his acts; my words are his words and my doctrine is his doctrine. My commission is to do what he wants done. To say what he wants said. To be a living modern witness in word and deed of the divinity of his great and marvelous latter-day work."

(kind of inappropriate... oh our missionaries!... shaking my head...)
