Because of Him!

This week was GLORIOUS! Firstly, Hermana Boley is amazing! I'm so excited to be her companion this transfer, it's going to be great!!!! A couple of highlights from this week were:

1. Getting members really involved in our lessons and building fellowship with our investigators. We had more member present lessons this week that ever before and it really made a difference. One example, the Vasquez family that came to church last week. We took their fellowship to a lesson with us and we talked all about the pamphlet "For the Strength of Youth". We talked about some of the standards that we live as members of the church and how it's helped us to stay doing the things that the Lord wants us to do. The member was able to testify of how much those standards have helped her family to be strengthed. They came to our Branch Activities this Friday and really enjoyed it. Gabby told me that her daughter finished reading the entire pamphlet and was really impressed by things like modesty and different standards like that. She wants to start coming to Young Women's Activities everyday :)

2. Doing service for our of our investigators, Flora. All her daughters attend an english ward and are active. She's met with tons of missionaries but never been baptized. She doesn't speak any English, hence where we come in the picture. Although the work with her is quite slow because of some people that have pushed her in the past, she's slowly making progress. The Senior Sisters here and the Seatac bishop have asked us to not give up on her because she is an amazing women. We were able to go other with all the Seatac missionaries and some members and work in their yard for a few hours. It was great to help people that are so busy and then to see how much they truly appreciate it :)

3. We had a couple of investigators at church again this week so that was exciting. I got to teach of Gospel Principles class because the teacher was sick. I love when we have investigators at church because it really is there that we can feel God's love so strongly. I LOVE THIS GOSPEL!!!!

Today I would like to invite you all to watch this amazing video. It's called "Because of Him".
 It's an amazing 3 minute video about our Savior, Jesus Christ and really helps us to better understand the amazing gift that our Lord has given us. Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. He knows us perfectly and it's through Him that we can change and become better everyday. As Easter approaches this week I would also like to invite every one of you to share this video on your Facebook, Twitter, and whatever other social media pages. Share this amazing knowledge that we have with other people so that they too can come to understand His never ending love for them :)

I love you all so so much. :) Have a wonderful Easter and never ever forget that you're children of God!

Con Amor,

Hermana Pier
