Training a 31 year old?!?!?!?!?!?

Sister Bowers and Sister Tuevi

SOOOOO I am training a 31 Yr. old! How crazy! It very different from my last companion! Her name is Sister Tuevi.   She is from Kiripati! She is so quiet an never talks! Her English is good! but i have to speak really slow for her to understand! So when ever we go out proselyting i take advantage and talk to everyone even though i may not know the language! I Just need to talk to people! It has been so awesome to see how the gift of tongues works! I know quite a bit of pohnpeian i guess you could say, but when you have a companion who doesn't know any its just you and the lord! This week we did a lot of walking and finding and during that time i would talk to the people they would reply back but i would know the words they were saying but through Heavenly Fathers help i understood what they were meaning to say! Speaking of not knowing the language! We were having a branch meeting and the pres. asked us how we could help get the members to church on time so i reply back in pohnpeian with the help of one of the members and everyone laughed! I ended up saying i would go and beat the members to help them wake up! haha all because i pronounced a word wrong! haha but no worries we all got back on the same page! I cannot express how grateful i am for all of the prayers! and support! Have a great week! Love and miss you all!

Sister Bowers and her FALL leaves.

Hey everyone I hope your week was great! This week has been great!  We were able to find new investigators and even listen to General Conference! It was AWESOME!!!  Well this week I am emailing from Guam because I am now TRAINING !!  What?? How crazy! I flew to Guam last night at 1 AM and got here at 4 AM!! I am not sure who I am going to be training but I will find out on Wednesday! I am a little stressed because our area is struggling and the language is going to be a little hard!  But is all gonna be okay there is going to be lots of laughs!  It will definitely be a learning and growing experience!!
   We finally got to listen to Conference this week and it was absolutely amazing! I loved being able to hear the words from our church leaders!  They are truly called of God! It is a different feeling when you are a missionary listening to conference!  It is like every talk is meant just for you!! Its amazing!
   I just want to bear my testimony to all of you that I  know this church is true!  I know that Heavenly Father loves and know each and everyone of us! I know with out a shadow of a doubt that
that the atonement is real. I know that  that is the only way we can find true happiness and peace in our lives! I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon, I know that it is true!  I know that even just reading it can bring happiness to our lives!  I know that we have a real prophet and apostles  on the earth today! I am so grateful for them! I am so grateful for all of you and all the support and prayers! I  know without a doubt that Heavenly Father hears them and answers them!  I share these things  with you in the name to Jesus Christ, Amen.
I hope you all have a great week !  I love you all so much! Miss you all!

Running water ?!?!

Hey everyone I hope you had a great week enjoying your running water! ;) Haha this week we didn't have any running water in the house so you can only guess what the week consist of , Bucket showers, filling buckets to flush the toilet and many more!  But on the bright side, we got an AC put in our house finally! When we went to bed I woke up that morning feeling as if I was laying in snow I was so cold  but hey its okay because its the first time I have been that cold while being on my mission!
     This week we went to teach on of our recent converts and when we went to his house him and his wife were fighting, his wife had told us that he started drinking again and was doing other things that he shouldn't! I was heart broken!! That is one thing on a mission.... its hurts when you see people fall even after they tasted the happiness that the gospel can bring them!   So we will be working a lot with him this week!
       A funny story for the week! we were walking through the jungle because we're in Pohnpei so its all muddy and my companion can't get mud on her feet because she has a bacteria  spread all over her feet so they can't get wet. So I kick off  my shoes put her on my back and carry her to the house and we had a lesson!! We go back the next day and she ends up falling in the mud!! Oh Man, the joys of being on an island!! You go home with spider in your hair, new mosquitos  bites, ant in your pants (skirts), muddy and sweaty!! There is honestly no place I would rather be!  Micronesia Guam mission is the place to be!  I love and miss you all so much!! Have a great week!

Love Sister Bowers

      Hey everyone hope your week was great! This week has been slow due to my companion and i being sick! But there is something really exciting that happened this week was my companion and I were able to move into a new house! And it has closets! Actual closets! This will be the first time other than in the MTC that i won't be living out of my suit case! WAHOO!!! 

 This week we had Zone Conference and the topic was based on the Book of Mormon! It was so awesome! I have really been studying the Book of Mormon this week and I have really seen how much peace it brings! Missions are hard. You only have two things to rely on and that is the Book of Mormon and our Heavenly Father! Like it says in Luke 1:37 "For with God nothing shall be impossible" I have truly come to know this while being on my mission! With God all things are possible!

 I love an miss you all have a great week! 
Love, Sister Bowers

Sister Bowers and Sister Fehoko... beautiful island girls!!!

I know this church is true!! I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that it can bring us so much peace! I know  Heavenly Father hears and answers our prayer! I know that I have been blessed with an amazing family!! I am sooo grateful for you all!   I love you! SIS Bowers

Chung! Chung!


Hello Everyone! Not much has happened this week but one thing that did was I ended up running with one of our recent converts and her friend to her house for a lesson while my companion and our member present  drove in the car!  It was funny companion just kept yelling at us........ " Chung" Which means run!!
     This week I was reading in Heleman 5 and it was talking about how the Lord watches over his servants and to know that he is always over me!!
     Thank you for all the support! I love and miss all of you! Have a great week! 
Love Sister Bryn Bowers
