Week 49

Hey y'all!

This week has been real good! I said goodbye to Sister Wilson who is now on the beaches of Jamaica (only a little jealous) and hello to my new greenie Sister Higby! She is pretty great! And a hard worker. We have been able to find a lot of potentials and teach a lot! It's been great!

Jasmin is all set for her baptism on Saturday! And we are soo excited for her! She is such an amazing girl with a killer testimony! That girl is going places! She is already planning on serving a mission and going to the temple next month! I am excited for her and to see where she goes.

Things are going great here! We are working hard. Being a missionary is the best! And so is Sister Higby and Jasmin!

Week 48

 Hey everyone! 

This morning we got transfer calls. Sister Wilson will be flying back to Jamaica and I will be staying, but not just staying. I get to train again! I am so pumped! This area is a goldmine and such a fun place! 
We have a baptism on the 29 in the YSA ward! Her name is Jasmin and she is the COOLEST!! We had an amazing experience that she told me I could share. So when we met Jasmin she was pretty stand off ish towards us. She didn't really want us around (her roommate is a member which is how we met her) but she decided to stay in on a lesson we had which was about how much God loves us and how Jesus Christ went through everything with us and won't forget us. We shared 1 Nephi 21:14-16 and then asked if we could come back and explain a little more about the Book of Mormon. She was hesitant but agreed. We went back and read the introduction and shared some of the Restoration with her. We went back and talked about the spirit and how its small and she started crying because she said she could feel it. it was so special. We asked her to read the Plan of Salvation Pamphlet and come to church. She came to church and then we went to have a lesson with her. She had ended up downloading the Gospel Library app, and read every single pamphlet on there, as well as some of the Book of Mormon, taught us the lessons and then asked when she could be baptized because she knew it was all true. WHOA! It was really cool and put us in awe. This girl has completely changed her life in 2 weeks and was so prepared by the Lord. she is such an example to me. I know that the Lord has people prepared, and it takes people like us, like all of us, to help each other come to Christ. 

It's not always to go out of your comfort zone and talk to people about the Savior or even about church or our beliefs but I know that when we do that we are blessed and we can bless others.

Have a stellar week! I have to go help Sister Wilson pack her bags!! 

Love,
Sister DeCamp

Week 47



Happy Independence Day!! 
I hope y'all had as good of a day as I did! We were able to spend a lot of time with some new investigators as well as members from different wards! 

This week started off awesome with LaTesha and Kaydan's baptism! It was such a great day! Kaydan is an amazing example to me as well as his family. He is 10 years old and has such a love for the gospel and a desire to learn. On Sunday her bore his testimony and then in primary they talked about missions and he told everyone that he wanted to go. And then at his baptism he was dancing with joy about how he was getting baptized today. It was the cutest thing ever! And his desire to be at church is so cool. He takes off to class and keeps his family there. It's really funny and really cool to see too. 

We had zone conference last week and it was probably my favorite one since being out. They focused a lot on joy and how the gospel can bring us joy. They also had us write down our "whys" Why we came out on a mission and why we stayed out on the mission. It was kind of mind blowing to think about where I was a year ago in comparison to where I am now. And what is important to me. 

We were asked to study from Mosiah 2-4 this week. And it is about joy. I know that this gospel brings joy to our lives. It has brought so much joy to my life. Even on the hard days we can find joy and happiness from our Savior. Remember to look for the positives, Because you find what you look for, look for the good.

Love y'all
Love,
Sister DeCamp
