Letter-October 2nd, 2016

Hello to all my loved ones. This week was business as usual. We are just doing our best to get out to work as much as possible and find people. My companion is doing great. I have sees lots of growth in her these last few weeks. I really love her a lot. We are just having fun exploring our area and trying to find out what works here. Every area is different for how the work goes best, so we are just praying to be aligned with Heavenly Fathers vision of our area.

This weekend we were able to watch the general women's broadcast. It was so amazing. I really loved President Uchtdorfs talk. It inspired me to really endure to the end of this mission. And finish strong and keep the faith. I am realizing now the end is going to be one of the hardest part. But our job is to keep the faith and finish strong. 

I love the work and I know that this church is true. I love you all so much!!!!! 

Love Sister Miggin

Hello everyone,
I hope that you are all enjoying this week, and getting ready for conference. This week for us was great. We got lost a few times, we are working without our tour guide. But we saw some tender mercies this weeks. I am so happy to be here in this area. It has it's challenges, but we can work it out. Our focus is now more on finding. We really need to build up our teaching pool. This week we were able to locate more members and less active homes. Also some new investigators as well. This week was my first Sunday in the Hamtic branch, because last week was conference. But I really love the unit here. They are eager and willing to help us missionaries. Yesterday we had 4 members join us in locating more of the less actives. SO I am happy to see their desire to help the missionaries.Anyway not much else about this week. I hope that you are all doing well. I love and miss you all. Have a good week.

Hello everyone,
I am in my new area. It's AMAZING!!!! So beautiful. So this week, the first part I was saying goodbye to members from my old area, and then on Thursday I picked up my brand new companion Sister Santos. She is so sweet, she was a little shy at first when she found out a white girl was going to be her trainer, but she quickly realized, that there will be no communication problems. Anyway after a 5 hour meeting, we finally got on the bus to go to our area. It took like 4 hours, down a very curvy road. I got a little car sick.

 We arrived in Antique to the sisters waiting for us and found out we had another hour travel. So we stayed the night there. Then the next day we took our stuff and went to Hamtic. Sister Hussien is my housemate, so it's fun to be with her again. There are 4 of us in the house. So the last few days, we have been touring the area. I have been shown most of the area and the members in the area. It's HUGE! It has the beach on one side and the "mountains" and rice fields on the other. It's honestly so breathtaking. I have been waiting for something like this. One of the best parts of the week was going to a area called bingay. You have to take a single motor into the mountains. Then we barefoot hiked though rice fields and mountains to get to this village up in the hills. It was a blast. We all just laughed and it was so fun. 

Yesterday we had our District Conference, so I still didn't get to meet all the members, but that's ok. We had 2 members work with us yesterday to continue to show us around. I can tell the ward has a desire to work.

So I am excited to get out there this week and keep exploring and start finding :) I hope you all have a good week! Until next week, 

Sister Miggin
