Hello hello!! Don’t have a ton of time today, but first I want to thank everyone for all of the birthday wishes. I feel so loved! I’m so so grateful 🙂 20 going on 12 hahah.
This week was awesome. We taught Rebecca almost every single day. She is preparing to be baptized this coming Saturday. We’re so excited! It’s been a long road but I’m grateful for the opportunity that I have had to teach her and help her come closer to Christ. Seeing how happy she has been since she’s been learning more about the gospel makes ME happy. I know the gospel brings happiness. It’s the plan of happiness. This is the way, and there is none other way nor name given under heaven whereby men can be saved in the kingdom of God. (2 Nephi 31:21, bomb chapter in the BOM)
Saturday we went on exchanges. I was able to go on exchanges with Sister Burns in her area in Irvine. Such a good time! Love her love her. I’m so grateful for her example and all that I was able to learn in just one day of being with her again. And it was awesome because lots of things happened in our area with Sister Benn and Sister Logsdon. Yayyy
Today….is my birthday! 🎉 I’m so grateful for the friends I’ve made here in the mission. I hadn’t made any plans for today, but some of my friends surprised me with a little party and at our zone activity they surprised me with Dr.Pepper floats. #blessingsonblessings
This week there was a lot of growth, many prayers answered, and progression. I’m so grateful to be a missionary and to be serving the Lord. I know this is the true church of Jesus Christ restored to the earth once again. I would invite you all to find one way to come closer to Christ this week, whether it be reading your scriptures, being more diligent with daily prayer, or attending church. As we find things to do that will help us come closer to Him, I know that we will in fact come closer to Him. He loves us so much and wants us to have a relationship with Him.
I hope you all have a wonderful week! Thanks for all of your prayers and love.
All my love,
Sister Martinez ❤️
Sister Benn made this for me. So sweet!
