I have been feeling so blessed lately. As I have been sharing my news about my mission call, such as with people that are not members of this glorious church, I have had many positive responses and I have had a few times I've been able to have a few missionary opportunities. One day as I was on my way home from school, I ran into a girl that I work with. She heard near the end of my shift that I was off to Mexico to serve a mission there. We were able to talk on the train ride home and I was able to answer some of her questions about the LDS church. It felt so great to clear up some confusions she had and help her understand a little more about us.

I was able to have another sort of opportunity like that one. That same day I met ran into the one girl from work, I ran into another girl that used to work at the same restaurant as me. "Mexico! Are you excited?" she said. We didn't have much time to talk so we agreed that we would meet up later that week and talk. That was two days ago. We met for a little over an hour, the whole time she was asking me questions about my mission, what missionaries do, how they communicate, missions in general, and a few questions about the church. I was able to bear a bit of my testimony with her and that was the most amazing thing.

I truly cannot wait to get out on the field as Hermana Jones and be able to teach about this wonderful gospel every day.

You're Going to Provo?

For those who are not of my faith (LDS), before we go out on the field, we get trained and learn how to be a good missionary at a Missionary Training Center... MTC for short. There are 15 all over the world with the largest one being in Provo, UT. One of these MTC's is in Mexico City, Mexico.

When people come up to me they ask "So, you're going to the Mexico MTC?" I say "Nope. Headed to Provo."

People, I promise, in my head this entry was going to be a little funny. Well, I do find it a little funny. To see the confusion on peoples faces since I'm not going to the Mexico MTC despite the fact that I will be serving in that country. But as I was called to serve in the Mexico Veracruz mission, the Provo MTC must be where I am also needed. The Lord knows best.

A General Welcome

Hello Beautiful People

I decided that for those who would like to follow my adventure on preparing for my Veracruz mission, I would create a different blog just for that. Hence why this exists :).  

Here I plan to write about things I encounter as I prepare for this mission, my thoughts and whatever else I feel would fit. Though there is not much right now, I invite you to stay tuned! I also invite you to check out my other blog. Streetlight Pie.
