For ye shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace:
the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

This week has been a great one! we found two new people to teach who are super ready to hear the gospel! and we are so excited to teach them! in our first lesson with joel he told us that he wants to come to church and he wants to be baptized. that does not happen every day. it was great! they both have so many questions which i love! this transfer is flying by. there was a musical fireside on sunday we sang in the choir and the spirit was so strong we had investigators come and they loved it. This life as a missionary is very funny and very sad and very happy. It is so much of every emotion there is every day. I do not think I have ever been so emotional before in my life! so that is a little weird. but it is great! we are learning and we are progressing! This is a quote I loved from my study this morning!
Shun discouragement. One of Satan’s most powerful tools is discouragement. Whisperings of “you can’t do it,” “you’re no good,” “it’s too late,” “what’s the use?” or “things are hopeless” are tools of destruction. Satan would like you to believe that because you’ve made one mistake it’s all over. He wants you to quit trying. It is important that discouragement is cast out of the lives of those who are waiting. This may take a decided amount of work and energy, but it can be accomplished.
When we have the spirit with us we will not be discouraged and we will not be afraid. I know that my Savior lives and that He is with me. He is merciful and forgiving. His arms are always open and extended towards us. I testify of His spirit and His never ending love in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
