Huntiongton Beach, Pacific Shores Ward

Well I am right close to the beach! It's beautiful, the scenery and the people! Sorry I dont have pictures yet! My new companions are Sister Saintonge from Montreal, Canada. Her first language is french. I have another companion, Sister Lambson who is fresh from the MTC, only been in the mission field for 2 weeks now. But she is a really good missionary, she is pretty much training me;) I love the ward I am in. Sister Lambson sprained her ankle last week and so she hasn't been able to work very much but she has been spending a lot of time with our ward members. Its a really hard area, not a lot of people talk to us. So I try to find good things everyday. Sometimes people let us finish our sentence, and might even let us say a prayer with them. those are good days. or yesterday i found some bubble wrap that made me really happy! haha. Whether people listen to us or not, it doesn't change the fact that Heavenly Father is real and He loves them. He sent His only begotten son Jesus Christ to live and overcome the world. It doesn't change the fact that Joseph Smith really did see God and Jesus Christ and was called to be a Prophet. Whether people believe it or not, it doesn't change what is absolutely true. So I find joy in my knowledge of these things, trying to share them, and also in spending time on my knees praying. 

want to leave you with a brief testimony that I know this Gospel is true. I have had questions this week questioning my faith, how strong it is anyway. But in my lesson yesterday, when our investigator was saying how the Book of Mormon isn't true and he doesn't want to read it. In desperation I started to read to him the account when Christ came and visited the people in America. Well.. he didn't feel the spirit testify to him. But I did. I felt it and the tears came to my eyes as I was reading. I know this Church is true. I know the Book of Mormon  is true. I can just feel it.
