Miracles on Pohnpei!!


Beautiful Pohnpei

Going to Church.

This week was literally miracles from the Lord. We were able to go to one of our investigators house and by go to i mean drive to the outer island, park and walk through the jungle for 30-40 minutes around to the other side of the island! We invited her to come to church but she said that we needed to talk to her dad to see if she could come, but her dad was out fishing. The next day was church so we said we would come and see her dad Sunday morning. So the alarm goes off at 6:20 we leave at 6:30 and get to the outer island and then my companion goes i forgot my name tag! I look down..."oh crap me too!!" So we drive back to the house and get our name tags and then back to the island! We park the car and then start speed walking so we can make it to her house in time so that she can come to church on time! If felt like we were running! The whole way to her house I was praying please please please let her dad come to church! She has been wanting to get baptized but hasn't been able to come! We finally get to her house and talk with her parents! It was like we showed up they said yes our investigator ran an showered and not only did she come with us to church but her brother as well! Hopefully next week the whole family can come!

   I know that Heavenly Father hears and answers our prayers! I have seen this week that after of the trial of your faith comes the blessings and it is so true! So no matter how hard things get or if you feel like everything is just going down hill stick it out, there will be mighty miracles coming shortly after! I know that missionary work is really the lords work and that its not easy! But I have learned so much from this experience already! I cannot thank you all enough for all the prayer and letters! I am so grateful for you all! Have a great week! Love and miss you all!!

Sisters Bowers and Sister Tuevi..... lower right.....cute little helper.

        Well this week was crazy!  We walked through the ocean because the tide was so high and we had to get to this lady's house to talk to her!  When we got there she wasn't there but we were able to have a lesson with her husband! The spirit was so strong! It was so awesome to feel just as we were teaching  him that we could feel the power of the spirit! 

What is Sister Bowers eating?  Seafood?  That's a miracle!

                   Since this week is  Thanksgiving I thought would share a scripture!  D&C 59:7!  I love this scripture as I was sitting  down during my studies I have really come to realize how blessed we are!  I just wanted to say that I am so grateful for all of you and all the support that you give me!  I am grateful for this gospel and I know with out a doubt that it is true! I am so grateful for Heavenly Father and the helps he gives us! I hope you all have a great week and  COUNT YOUR MANY BLESSINGS!  Have a great week love you all!

Love Sister Bowers

Uh Branch

The Poll Family in our branch and our Branch President 

Hey everyone! This week has been crazy! The area i am in is hard to find new investigators, no one ever wants to come to church! But all is well! We were led to a little girl who is 8 years old and her dad is a member and he told us that we needed to go and teach her! So off we went! We go to her house and while we are teaching her another little boy whos parents are members but are less active joined in the lesson! We invited them to both be baptized and they both said yes! It was a miracle from Heavenly Father! Then on Sunday they came to church and ended up bringing their parents with them! It is so awesome to see the tender mercies of the Lord! 

 This week i have been reading about the Tree of life! Oh man how it relates exactly to our day! 

1. 1 Nephi 11;25

2. 3 Nephi 14:13 and 14

3. 1 Nephi 10:19

Straight and narrow is the way, as time goes on the straighter and narrower the path gets, We always need to be holding on to the rod by studying the scriptures, praying, obeying the commandments even the little ones, by not listening to those songs that don't invite the spirit! I  can promise you that as you do, you will notice a difference! I know this is the true church! I am so grateful for all of you! Thanks for all the support! Have a great week! Love you all!
