This week was SO great๐Ÿ’œ

So Monday as a zone we went and hiked Hanging Rock. I paid for it throughout the rest of the week ๐Ÿ˜… But it was so fun! On the way back down a lot of people stopped us and asked what group we were with. This one lady said "I can tell you are all filled with the Holy Spirit" (': Once we got down we had a little lunch and they made me and Elder Garrett birthday brownies! 

Tuesday was my birthday ๐Ÿ™Œ It was 10000% better than last year. Sister Charles was so sweet! She knows that I typically spend my birthday in Disneyland, so she decorated the living room and even made me minnie ears! Ha! Oh and while we were out knocking doors that day we got to a formers house, and right as we stepped out of the car she was on her lawn yelling " GET OFF MY PROPERTY, I AM CALLING THE POLICE" Happy Birthday to me (': Hahah but it was fine. Sister Asbury fed us dinner and then we all went to the religious meeting. They bought me a cake and sang to me. Ahh I love them! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Wednesday we had Zone Meeting. The Alexanders plus one of their daughters and her family came! They are the cutest. They even called and sang to me for my birthday! We started exchanges after that! Sister Christensen (fun fact: her grandma is from good old Moapa Valley AND she was at the victory bell senior year when we took state! #smallworld) came to Stuart and we had a blast! 

Saturday = best day everrrrr๐Ÿ’™ Wendell got baptized!!! Yay!! It was so great! We had a really good turn out. He is so golden!! I can't wait to see where this new life takes him! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Lastly, I just wanted to thank all of you who remembered me on my birthday and took the time out of your day to make me feel loved! ๐Ÿ˜Š Thank you for the cards, emails, videos, and packages! Being away from home can be hard, but it is all so worth it when you have an incredible support system like I do! I am SO blessed❤

I hope you all have an amazing week! Happy March ๐Ÿ˜˜

Sending Love,

It was a pretty good week up here in Stuart!

On Tuesday we got to see Wendell. Some church had sent him some sort if picture book about Christs' death and he was super confused because what he read in there was contradicting what he read in the Gospel Principles book. So we went to the one source that is more powerful than anything else! The scriptures! His questions were resolved and we were able to continue with our lesson! We also prepped him for his baptismal interview, which spoiler alert: he passed ๐Ÿ˜Š

We also went to the Tuesday night meeting! David ( Jewish man) lead and to be 100% honest everything went over my head. He is extremely intelligent (side note: he wrote a new york best selling book in the 90's about JFK) and so he used words I didn't know and got real deep in the Bible. He is writing a book about it right now, so he basically just read from it. Oh and another member of the meeting group got us all roses (': 

Wednesday and Thursday were pretty basic. We did however find a new investigator through a member! So we are pretty happy about that! 

Friday I had the most unique dinner appointment ever. So a woman in our branch signed up to feed us. She texted around 5ish and said she was in jury duty and didn't know how late she would be. So she just had us go to her house and her husband set out all the food and he just went and worked in his shop until we finished eating ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Saturday was pretty great! So we got to Wendell's and this convo took place
Us: how have you been?!
Him: not to good
Us : *looks at smoke free calendar sees no stickers on it for 3 days* * starts to have panic attack*
Us: oh no! 
Him: *starts laughing* I'm just messing with y'all! I just wanted you to see me put the stickers on!
Us: ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™Œ
So he has been smoke free about 16 days now!! We are pumped!! His baptism is THIS WEEK❤ 

Saturday we also met two inactive members who said we could start meeting with them! Tender mercy right there (,: 

Yesterday we had branch conference and seriously every talk spoke to me. Let me tell you, God answers prayers through other people!! And before church started  Brother Durphee called me over to him and said " your mother must really love you." And I was so confused and he just said he felt like he needed to tell me that. I almost cried but go me, I held it in! We also had a branch potluck after and let's just say i felt like violet in willy wonka when she puffed up and turned into a giant blueberry. But #noregrets๐Ÿ˜

So I've been asked what I want for my birthday and honestly there would be nothing better than to hear from all of you! Seriously "words of affirmation" is my love language so getting a letter in the mail or a fun email would make my day๐Ÿ˜‰ plus its free haha (or even better a handwritten copy of your testimony because I have been collecting those just sayin) 

Spiritual Thought: "Clearly, Lehi knew opposition, anxiety, heartache, pain, disappointment, and sorrow. Yet he declared boldly and without reservation a principle as revealed by the Lord: "Men are, that they might have joy." Imagine! Of all the words he could have used to describe the nature and purpose of our lives here in mortality, he chose the word joy!" - Russell M Nelson

Well today we are going to hike Hanging Rock as a zone! So I will be back later this afternoon, so don't worry if I don't reply to you for a while! 

Love you all so much!! ❤ I'll talk to you next week when I am no longer a teenager (': *gags*

So Tuesday was pretty much crazy/sad/stressful. We packed Sister Sandy up and Sister Thompson drove us to Charlotte! I got to see Sister Hickenlopper๐Ÿ™Œ It was a great reunion! (ps she is training (': i have a "grandchild" now๐Ÿ˜‚) Fast forward to the part where I hugged Sister Davis & Sister Sandy goodbye, so much for waterproof mascara! Thank goodness Sister Perez was there! She made me look human again hahah. 

So my new companion is Sister Charles.  She is one transfer older than me and she is from Oregon! We had a pretty fast paced first day together! As soon as we got back from Charlotte, we had to rush to our dinner appointment, then go to the Tuesday night meeting, and then I got lost on the way home ๐Ÿ˜‚ So we didn't get back till around 9:15. 

Wendell is doing a m a z i n g ❤ He is still smoke free! And he wants to be baptized sooner! So looks like I am getting a good birthday present next Saturday, the 25th ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜Š

Oh I have a good story! So this week the zone leaders and assistants came to our district meeting. After we all went out to lunch at this Mexican restaurant. I don't know who ( my money is on Elder Bishop but he swears it wasn't him) but someone told the waitress it was Elder Murray's birthday. (which is wasnt) So the crew comes out with a sombrero and they start singing and then they mash cake into his face ๐Ÿ˜‚ It was hilariousssss! Or maybe you just had to be there but still a highlight of the week!

Also Saturday morning our power went out so we got ready in the dark with a little latern. That was an adventure! And our microwave broke ๐Ÿ™ƒ 

spiritual thought: 
"I come … with a plea that we stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight. I'm suggesting that we accentuate the positive. I'm asking that we look a little deeper for the good, that we still our voices of insult and sarcasm, that we more generously compliment virtue and effort." - Gordon B Hinckley 

Okay sorry this email was so lame. Feel free to email me with any questions or just to update me on how you're doing! ๐Ÿ˜Š I would love to hear from ya! Love youuuu! ๐Ÿ’•

Hi! Happy February aka my birth month๐ŸŽ‰ ๐Ÿ™Œ I turn 20 in two weeks. I might gag if I think about it too hard though

It was a pretty great week up here in Stuart! It is Sister Sandy's last 48 hours so emotions are like everywhere. But I would just like to publically thank her for enduring to the end. There is not a trunky bone in her body and what a blessing that is!! 

We had zone conference on Thursday! It was combined with 2 other zones! I got to be with 3 of my past companions! Which is alwayyyys a blast! This zone conference was really focused on The Plan of Salvation! What a great feeling it is to know where we came from, why we are here, and where we are going after! Seriouslynit makes like 100000 times easier. Sister Sandy had her exit interview so we had to stay around after the meeting for a while. So I hung out with Sister Alexander and the Pilot Sisters! Sister Alexander showed us the transfer board on her ipad. And guess what?! Some change happened in the missionary department and ALL the transfers got pushed up. So now I come home in September. ๐Ÿ˜ญ 

We got to see MAJOR progress with Wendell. So we taught him Wednesday. We told him at our last apointment we would teach "The Gospel of Jesus Christ" butttt Sister Sandy and I both really felt like we needed to teach "The Word of Wisdom." So we showed up and told him we changed our minds. He said he had been praying that someone would help him quit smoking! Ahh miracle! He is really showing faith unto repentence! He showed up to church yesterday and said he had't smoked since our lesson on Saturday!! I have never had to quit smoming or  taught someome who had to quit smoking, so if any of yall have had personal expeirence and dont mind sharing, I would love it! ๐Ÿ˜Š

ALSO AN APOSTLE IS COMING TO THE MISSION IN MARCH!!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜€I have met him before very briefly, but still exciting! 

Oh duh transfer news. So I am staying put in Stuart for the next 7 weeks (its a long transfer i dont really know why though) and Sister Charles will be my new companion! I don't really know her so good thing we have at least 7 weeks together haha I will miss Sister Sandy SO much! Seriously she is the best! ๐Ÿ’™

Spiritual Thought: 
"Essential to the plan is our Savior, Jesus Christ. Without His atoning sacrifice, all would be lost. It is not enough, however, merely to believe in Him and His mission. We need to work and learn, search and pray, repent and improve. We need to know God's laws and live them. We need to receive His saving ordinances. Only by so doing will we obtain true, eternal happiness." - Thomas S Monson

Okay well that's all I got this week. If you have anything exciting happening in your life feel free to email or snail mail me!! ๐Ÿ˜˜ 

Love you all! Have a miracle filled week! ❤❤

Sending Love,
Sister Jacobsmeyer๐Ÿ’•
