6 MONTHS LEFT!


Snail on Pohnpei.


Hey Everyone! How was your week?! This week was good! A lot of stress has been lifted! I absolutely love my new companion Sister James she is such a sweet heart! We decided to drop most of our investigators and just start over, We are keeping the ones that are really progressing! Kikileen and Kohrner (Eternal Investigators) haha oh man they are doing amazing! They are progressing so fast! They are planning on getting married on the 10th of June so i am really excited! We were going to meet them and Kohrner told us that he went to Kikileens mom and asked for permission/talked to her about them getting married and baptized! Now Kikileen just has to go! They are a family that shows how real the atonement is! 

I am so grateful for the opportunity that i have to be a missionary and to see peoples lives change! I am grateful for all of my trials and struggles that i have had in life and on my mission because those are what have made my testimony grow!  I have seen how real the atonement is in my life and in the lives of others! I love this gospel with my whole heart! I love the Book of Mormon! I am so grateful for the power it has in it and the comfort it gives us! I hope you all have a great week! I love and miss you all!

Love,

Sister Bowers

Peineineite!


Happy Birthday!!  BIG 20!



Hey everyone! This week has been pretty slow, we started proselyting on Friday so it has been a long week! Saturday we were blessed with a baptism a 11 yr. old boy named Shondon Dadius! He is so sweet! As we were waiting for the baptism to start we forgot we needed witnesses so we had to wait 30 more min to start to wait for elders to come! Haha oh man baptisms on this island are rough! You never know if they are gonna go smoothly or what! haha so yes I had a typical blonde moment and forgot that you need witnesses at a baptism! Hahah

Sunday was good! 20 yrs. old now! Holy cow time flys!! At church all of my recent converts were there except one, so i guess not all but it was good enough for me! Everyone's talks were on the Plan of Salvation it was alot of the members who normally dont give talks! It has been really cool to see the Branch slowly grow!! Transfer calls were yesterday! And as you read.. another transfer in Uh! WIth an new companion SISTER JAMES! It will be good i am excited! Oh man this will be almost 10 months in the Uh area! What a blessing! 



A cool scripture that i found this week is 3 Nephi 12:20! Go and Read it! I hope you all know how grateful i am for each and everyone of you and all your prayers and support!! I am so grateful for this gospel and the many blessings we can all receive from it! Have a great week! Love you all!!
