We're the Sister Missionaries here in Mt. Si, teaching all the kids it ain't cool to get high!!


It's been another BEAUTIFUL week here in the Valley and I'm loving my time here!
Firstly is the weekly update on Marco!!!! Haha He's so great! We had a few lessons this week and I'm pretty sure that he should be the one teaching us. Not even joking! we had a lesson about the Book of Mormon and we were just talking about how we can apply scriptures in our own lives. So we choose a few of the stories that he's already gotten to in his reading in the Book of Mormon and talked about them. We got there and he knew so much. He could basically tell us all the details about every story and how he'd tried to apply it in his life. He is a scripture reading pro. He's loving getting to know the members in the ward and loves his calling to set the translation equipment up every week. We're so happy that he is so diligent and has so much faith!

One miracle that has happened recently is one of the people who used to attend church and ever had a baptismal date has began coming back to church! Yay! Chera is amazing and such a strong woman but was going through some really hard times and instead of going to the Lord to get help she became kind of bitter against God. We would still go visit her every now and then but she wasn't really interested in what we had to say anymore. A few weeks ago she decided to come to church and is now coming to church every week and is attending the Relief Society activities. She is working on giving up smoking and we are just trying to be super supportive and help her with the difficult change.

Last night I experienced one of those times that you know you're lead to visit certain people. First off, If you've ever had to go knocking door to door in the Seattle area on the night of a Seahawks game before, you also probably didn't have a ton of people wanting to open their doors and talk to you. This was exactly our dilemma yesterday. To add to the fun it also finally decided to rain. And when I say rain I'm not saying a Seattle mist. More like raining cats and dogs, thunder, lightning, the whole deal. We tried to visit lots of people with no luck and then Hermana Phillips felt like we should go visit Veronica. So, we decided to go visit Veronica and see if we could teach her. Luckily, she was home and let us right in and we started to read some in the scriptures with her but we soon found out she has a HUGE fear of lightning, she was more scared than her two kids were. So we said a prayer with her and decided to play a game of "Don't Eat Pete" to distract her. She loved it and was so grateful for us and that she was able to be distracted from the storm. And even though it wasn't a big thing I'm really glad we were there to help her a little.

I just want you all to know that I know with all my heart that our Heavenly Father knows each of us personally. And he knows exactly what we all need and how to help us though ANYTHING. It's been amazing seeing this not only in my life but in the life of the people in this area, in my companion, and in my family back home. I'm so grateful that every time I need someone who can understand what I'm going though, Christ knows. Always. What a blessing we have to know this and to be able to pray to him how love and support.

Les quiero!
Con Amor,
Hermana Pier
