Letter-October 11th, 2015

Well I finally got to watch Conference. Sorry I am a week behind. But it was such a good conference. I didn't actually know that Elder Scott had passed away but now I know and there is 3 really awesome new apostles. So my favorite talks were all of them. Joke lang, I really enjoyed Elder Holland talk. It made us all cry. Its so true about mothers. I sure and grateful for my Mom and all she does for us. I also loved Elder Durrants talk and the "ponderizing" I want to do that. We already kind of do that in this mission. But it's something that I want to keep going for sure. During conference I really noticed that they talked a lot about the Sabbath day and the sacrament. It's such an important part of the plan. I don't think I really realized how important it was until my mission.  I also got out of conference the importance of being able to recognize the Holy Ghost. That's something that I learn more about everyday. I have goals in my life to help me be able to recognize and listen to the spirit and than act on it without hesitation.

This week was good. We have more hours now that I am not training and there is no language study. So we did a lot more walking and talking. We did kind of get punted a lot this week. But that's ok too, some weeks are like that. We did have 3 investigators come to conference which was awesome! There is lot's of progress happening in our area right now. I just pray that we will be able to recognize the will of the Father for our area. I am really glad that I get one more transfer with my companion Sister Scicluna. This is her last one! She has been teaching me a lot and passing on all her wisdom on me. 
Until next week,

Sister Miggin

Hello Everyone,
This week as it begins a new transfer means that my 12 week training is over and I am no longer a "bata" or baby in the mission. Now I am just a Jr. companion. We had a good week this week. Sister Scicluna had the flew so our hours were a little short. But all is well now! We are starting to see a lot of progress in our area. I am really excited for October and to hopefully see more progression. What else happened this week. Women's conference was amazing. I loved President Uchdorf's talk and his story. It was so inspiring. Its so true though. Happiness is a choice. We can choose to walk the road of misery or happiness. It was just a good talk. I could really understand why the Savior would teach in parables and stories. Everyone got something different from his story. It was really awesome to me. 
Our investigator Noel is doing awesome. He has given up his coffee in order to live the word of wisdom so he can be baptized this month. I am so happy for his decision. You can really see him start to come closer to the savior. Also this family we have been teaching for a while now. For the last few Sundays only the dad would come to church. But this week the WHOLE family came. It was awesome! The ward was awesome at fellow-shipping them too. They were nervous to all come especially since they have a daughter with special need. But the ward was awesome to them. It was a great Sunday for sure. We ended up having 7 investigators there. 
This morning we had our zone activity. We went to the beach and played games and had a cook out. It was a blast. I finally got to "get in the water." My companion knows how much I love the water she was like "Sister Miggin no swimming remember." I'll admit the water was very inviting! I hope you all had a good week. Thanks for your prayers. They are always welcome!
