First off, 

​Happy Birthday to two of my fabulous sisters, Amelia and Lizzie! Love you two :)

Were you all waiting on the edge of your seat waiting to hear what happened with transfers?

I'm still in the Pueblo! Yay! I just got a super cool new companion! Her name is Hermana Juarez, she's from Guadalajara, and we laugh a lot. We've been having a great time looking for more people who want to hear our message and change their lives. We got creative this week too.
One day when we finished a lesson, the woman we were teaching offered us some requesón (I don't know what it's called in English. It's a dairy product.) and we asked her where she'd bought it. She told us that she buys it from a lady who lives down the street and that she also makes good cheese.
We've been looking for where we can find good cheese.
So we decided to go meet her to see if she wanted to hear our message and sell us cheese. We found her and her sister, who also makes cheese, and they want us to visit them! They also sold us really good cheese!

Spanish Lessons with Hermana Clark:
Gallinas- hens. As in, "One of our investigators has hens in her backyard. My companion helped her to collect the eggs from the chicken coop."
Alabar- to praise. As in, "Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the name of the Lord; praise him, O ye servants of the Lord." Psalm 135:1
Aleluya- Hallelujah. As in, "Hallelujah means 'Praise ye the Lord.' The church released a new video las week called Hallelujah that talks about what the Resurrection, which we celebrate this Easter season, means for us. Watch it!!"

This week something cool happened! There's this couple that has gone to church a lot but they haven't been able to get baptized because they live together and aren't married. She's been waiting for her divorce sentence to arrive for two years. Last week they showed up in church and told us it would be getting here this week. And it did! So we've started teaching them again and we're hoping for them to get baptized in April! They were so excited. They said it was an answer to their prayers.

We also visited the cool family that loves the Bible a couple times this week (they're also the family with the chickens). We told them about General Conference that's coming up, and they're way excited to hear from the prophets of God. We also taught them about tithing, and they said, "We know that tithing is a commandment that brings blessings. We've been paying tithing in another church, but when we're baptized we'll start paying it here."
Wow. We should all have faith to keep the commandments.

This week we've been talking a lot about Easter and Holy Week. We've been studying and teaching a lot about the Atonement and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. 

"He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Surely he has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed." Mosiah 14:3-5/Isaiah 53:3-5

I am so grateful that My Savior suffered and paid for my sins and pains. I know that He knows me. I know that He knows each one of us personally. He paid the price for our sins so that we could become better people and prepare ourselves to live with Him one day. He paid the price to conquer death so that we could all one day conquer death and see our loved ones again.

Watch the video and think about what the Savior's sacrifice means for you. If you don't know much about it and want to learn more, ask the missionaries. It's the greatest message you'll ever hear! And if you've heard it, share it!

In Jesus Christ I have found a new life. And I am so blessed to be here seeing others find a new life in Him as well.

"For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive." 1 Corinthians 15:22
