Hey everyone, so this week has been a very slow week! Sister Russell and I were sick so we both just stayed  in and our companions went out together! So I guess you could say that I slept  through the week!  So here are two pictures for the week! The one is of our member present ! She is very funny!  And then then here is to nine months! Have a great week!  Love and miss you all!! :)

Almost 9 months!

Hey everyone! This week has been another slow week! We have really been working with the less actives to try to re build the branch! It makes it hard to baptize someone when the whole branch is struggling! So it has been cool to see the branch start to come together again!

 On Saturday we were giving service and we were mwuting (weeding) and we were about to leave and so i hurry and try to finish up where we were at and ended up grabbing a razor blade i think! I look down at my thumb and saw there was blood and some how i managed to stay standing! haha i went down to the water and washed it and after words some how managed to find some super glue and was able to glue it shut! haha so that is about all the excitement that happened this week!

 I want to just leave you all with a little testimony about families! I am so grateful for my family! I am so grateful for all of you because you are just like my family! I have really come to see the importance of families on my mission! And one thing that i have come to learn is that families can be together for ever! I know that we can always be with our families forever as long as we keep the commandments and do the little things! I know that Jesus Christ is our savior and he know each and every one of us! I am so grateful that i can be on the Island of pohnpei serving these beautiful people! I love you all and i say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen. 

  I hope you all have a great weeek! Love and miss you all so much!

Spanked by the Ocean!

Beautiful Sister Bowers

Sister Bowers and Sister Russell ..... oh how we love these two!!

Hey! I hope everyones week was great! This week was good! We didnt get to have a whole lot of time proselyting because we had a really long meeting on Thursday about our new schedule and Zone conference! Then on Saturday we were able to go out to the outer island and have our bums spanked by the ocean as one elder would say! :) haha oh man to funny! Its because we sit on the edge of the boat and the waves splash all over your bum! ahah its so fun!

Sister Bowers and Sister Leslie ( MTC Companion)

This week we went to have a lesson with one of our investigators and the lesson was not very good! For some reason the spirit was not there and I was having a hard time translating! We talked about baptism and the Holy Ghost and she told us that she was already baptized and recieved the Holy Ghost! Oh man i froze my companion had no clue what was going on at all! I didnt want to turn the lesson to an argument so we just kinda ended it but luckily we were able to go back and have another lesson! Oh man that lesson was probably one of the best lessons i have ever been in! We just talked about Jesus Christ! Every one was so happy and the spirit was so strong! 

On Thursday after our meeting our car had a flat tire and the elders werent going to come and help us change it so there me and sister Russell went straight to work! It probably took us 30 min but hey we did it on not very level ground! So yes you all should be very proud! :) 

On Wednesday I was studying and was just really over whelmed and stressed and i read a talk i cant remember from were and then i just broke down! I immediately felt the love of our savior and heavenly Father and then the love of all of you! Oh man it was only 5 sec but it was enough to get me through! 

I have Become so grateful for my savior Jesus Christ! I have become so grateful for prayer as well! I have been praying very often through out the day..everyday just to know i always have someone to talk to! I am so grateful for the opportunity i have to be on a mission and to be serving our Heavenly Father! Yes missions are very challenging but in the end its all gotta be worth it! 

I am so grateful for all of you I hope and pray you all have a good week! and are safe! Praying that the flooding can get under control! I love you all and miss you all so much! Have a great weeK!

Boat Ride!!


Sister Bowers & Sister Wari

         Hey everyone! How was your week? Things are going good on Pohnpei! The beginning of the week was pretty slow! 

On Wednesday we were walking and were able to find a lot of new people to teach! So i am excited to teach them this week! 

On Thursday We had district meeting! So we drove to Kolonia and didn't end up getting back into our areas until 5! We had to get all of our cars registered for the new year! Oh man it was so late!

On Friday It was my companions birthday! So We whipped her up a cake and did weekly planning to celebrate! (those who know what weekly planning is...Good birthday present huh?) ;) haha 

On Saturday we were able to get on a boat! YES a BOAT! We went to an island that just got opened maybe 2 transfers ago and were invited to go to their baptism! HOLY COW! I miss being on boats and out on the water! I was so pretty and cool to be able to see the whole island of Pohnpei! 

On Sunday we woke up at 6 and started walking to our less actives house at 6:30 to help them to come back to church again! We get to their house and they were still sleeping but their brother was awake! So he said that one of his sister was going to come with us! So i said okay we will wait at the road! So we go and sit at the edge of the road and i look at Sister Wari and say if they don't come in 10 min we need to go or we wont make it to church in time! I just remember praying and praying that at least one of them would come! Just one! 10 min was up i get up look at Sister Wari and say "Hang on, i will be right back" i walked to the road that goes to their house and here comes Angalee one of there daughters! Oh man i knew in that moment Heavenly Father answered my prayers! We were able to have 44 people back at church this week! And we were able to have our investigators come too! 

 This week i have really realize the importance of obedience. Before my mission i just took obedience and okay don't break the 10 commandments, obey papa Kent and Mama Shalice but know i understand how important obedience really is. If we aren't obedient, we cant go back with Heavenly Father or we cant live with our families for ever! I am so grateful for commandments because their our road map for this life! 

  I love you all so much! I hope you all have a great week!
