Mission Update

Finally, yesterday, I finished my training, with the last web-lab meeting at noon I close the round of courses. Now to practice. Thursday I will be having a knowledge test, then a coached practice until my first day "Solo"

May 1st will be my first day on the field. I'm starting on e-mails, probably English and Spanish at the same time. Then in two weeks I will be handling phones . . . "That's my goal"

Let me tell you, I can answer any question now . . . I have access to a "knowledge data base" that have all the answers for the most popular questions, and if I can't answer the question I will find someone who will.
I like that; not just because I can search for answers to other people's questions, but also I can answer my own . . .

I love this time of service, I am learning so much and I feel capable of serving well in the field. I truly believe that "If there's a will there's a way" I found myself studying, cleaning, "selling", teaching, going to meetings, organizing fund raisers, doing interviews and having time to cook, because our Father in Haven had made more hours in the day just for me, to accomplish all that, "isn't He nice?"

I am so blessed to have good friends and a loving husband, who is my best friend, to have healthy children, the restored gospel in my life, and soon I will be having the priesthood in my home too, what else can I do every day but to give thanks for all that. . .
Scripture of the Day

"Bring ye all the tithes
into the storehouse, that
there may be meat in mine house,
and prove me now herewith,
saith the Lord of hosts;
if I will not open you the
windows of heaven, and pour
you out a blessing, that
there shall not be room enough
to receive it

-Malachi 3:10-

"Friendship is
a plant
which must
often be

-German Proverb-
