Er Mer Gersh

Y'all! I just love each of you! Give yourself a hug from me :) Thank you for your emails, they always make me so happy! (unless they are about people that died or got married) 
All is well in little ol' Andrews Texas. Sister Overson and I have been rocking it! I cannot describe the PURE JOY that comes from being made an instrument in the hands of the Lord. The mission field, like life, is full of adversity. But it is necessary for us to pass through it so we can progress. Heavenly Father won't ask for us to pass through a trial unless it is necessary for us to go through. He knows who He wants us to become. Trust Him! 
We have been seeing miracle after miracle. En realidad, every blessing we receive comes from our obedience. We were led to this AMAZINGLY PREPARED FAMILY on Tuesday night. We were tracting and they let us RIGHT IN and gave us DINNER and it was so incredible. They used to live in El Paso next to some LDS people and they were so kind to them and they took them on the open house tour of the Juarez temple :) It just almost brought tears to my eyes because I was so grateful that their neighbors opened their mouths and reached out to them. They probably thought their effort was wasted but I can testify that NO EFFORT IS WASTED! God has a plan for everyone and we are all involved in it. 
Good things are happening here, I am so excited for this transfer. 
I had a huge meltdown on Saturday and I was having the hardest time. I literally bawled for 2 hours in my bed, haha. My eyes were SO PUFFY i could hardly open them. But then I got on my knees, imagined the Savior next to me, and I told Him how I was feeling. I told Him that i didn't think I had the faith to go through this trial, and then I asked Him for help. And then I went to sleep. When i woke up, I was filled with hope. As I went throughout the day, i realized i felt stronger. That strength, though it felt like my own, but I knew it wasn't. 
"but behold, he did deliver them because they did humble themselves before him; and because they cried mightily unto him he did deliver them out of bondage; and thus doth the Lord work with his power in all cases among the children of men, extending an arm of mercy towards them that put their trust in him" Mosiah 29:20
I hope y'all have a great week. my camera is being dumb, but i will send home my sd card and if everyone bugs mom, she will upload them onto my blog :)
