Still here!... unfortunately not for long :(
Wow it's been a long time since I've written I'm sorry to all! I hope all have been well :) 

I feel like I have been a bit of a mess emotionally lolf these past few weeks as my time draws to an end as a full time missionary. I cant believe this is it, I've come down to the last week I have as a full-time servant of the Lord and I simply can't believe it. It's almost a bit strange my mind can't seem to grasp, that this is the end of my time here, however I know that the work and learning doesn't stop here; just that all my time and attention as a servant to and of the Lord, is coming to a close but I know that He always blesses us as we serve Him in any time, any moment, anywhere. 

I've had some mixed feelings and emotions these last few weeks but nevertheless, we have seen a bit more progresstion in all things. We have a bit more of an urgency to be exactly obedient so that the Lord guides us and blesses us so that we can have the Spirit. I testify that being obedient to His commandments helps us to feel His love and of the Holy Spirit who guides us and comforts us. 

We have had many investigators attending church! 7 were at church! Wahoo!!! The family Dominguez Cruz is still progressing, although not enough to be baptized before my departure :'( I was really hoping for that, to seem all of them in their white clothes but I also know that it's not about me so it's not what I want. All in the Lord's time. The good news is that we had Family Home Evenings and they loved it! We are also finding new investigators and seeing more miracles and witnessing how the Lord guides the individual lives of His children and I know this is true. 

Some interesting other things that have happened recently all all in the photos that I am sending so that you can be a part of the adventures :)

***Last Monday P Day we got to go downtown and take some fun pictures.. I've included a picture of my hair now because it's growing so long!.. I also got a package in the mail from the primary of my ward ;D... got to go to the dentist to have a free cleaning ��...  tried a different fruit called Anona and actually was pretty good!.. oh and last week I got an eye infection, was red and kinda swollen, wasn't pretty :(.. and a picture of some of the fun murals that are all over the city! 

Well I hope everyone has a great week and I can't wait to be home but first I have a work to do, a work to be finished. Please be safe and have a great week!!

¡¡Feliz Año Nuevo!..?

Helloo Happy New Year everyone!! I hope you all had a great New Year. Guess what we did!? We slept. Haha we slept and made a piñata.. Well now we just have to decorate it. Remember last year? Yep so I decided that it's a tradition now that I make a piñata for New Year's, it's so fun! I'll send a picture next week when it's finished. 

So this week so many things happened! As well as a lot of emotions have been felt! We had exchanges with our Sister Training Leaders and I got to know a new area for a day, we returned home on New Year's Eve at 6 PM for protection of all the fiestas and alcohol, and we painted a house!!!! YAY por fin! Finally someone let us serve them! I mean we are always trying to find ways to serve people but this was a project out of the norm. I even got to put on my jeans! Haha I'll have the pictures hopefully next week too of that fun event. I was so happy. 

The family's house that we helped paint is actually our investigator family that we're teaching that we are hoping we be prepared for a baptism at the end of this month! Wahoo. We are working with them to help the overcome their doubts and worries.. mainly from the hermano and we hope they get baptized because they also have officially decided they want to get married!!! 

The family's name is Dominguez Cruz. In the family is the father Luis, the kids luis (10), Alondra (12), Edwin (4), and their mom Gaby. It was so cute because this week when we had a Family Home Evening, we asked them all to share something of the week that they liked or that went well. But because Edwin is so little, he didn't understand the question really well and all he said smiling was.. Estoy feliz :) Hermana Carbajal asked, you're happy why? and he replied.. va haber boda! Which means, there's gonna be a wedding. Chuckling we said, there's gonna be a wedding? Of who? He simply told us as in a manner if it were something obvious with his arms outstretched and said, well mi familia! Hahaha it was so cute and he is super smart too. He likes to say prayers too and when we finish he loudly says AMEN! lol Ahhh Their really special to us and I know that as long as we are obedient and try our best, the Lord will help us to help them see their baptism day. 

Well to finish the week and start the year with a little bit of unluck.. we spent All. Day. Yesterday. In the hospital... �� It was horribly boring. I was fine, am fine but my poor companion had a kidney stone attack yesterday morning and luckily there were members ready to help us and so we woke up and as we started to get ready is when it all happened.. I felt helpless as I saw my poor companion in excrutiating pain but thankful that Hermana Kirkham helped us discern that we should go to the hospital. Because we actually had no idea what it was. All we knew is that she had a pain in her left side and it wasn't a stomach pain so I didn't know what it could be.. I instinctly thought it was her appendix but Hermana Kirkham said she thought it was a pain in her ovary because of her time of the month.. I was clueless and so was she and especially after the mission doctor nor her husband answered so she said okay, then take a taxi and go to the hospital. And when she said that I thought, oh no really? The hospital? I thought about getting lost and not knowing where to go but luckily I remembered exactly the night before, some sweet members said, Hermanas if you need anything let us know. 

So Hermana Pech was the first I thought of and when I heard her voice of comfort I started to well up with tears and couldn't find my voice to tell her what we needed. I found my voice and she said okay I'll my husband and I'm on my way! They dropped everything and took us there and there we spent the whole day... haha it was quite an adventure but I'm happy to say that we got her medication and everything will be just fine. We are still waiting to hear back for an appointment with the urologist so by the end of this week I hope we can say goodbye to the kidney stone of Hermana Carbajal. All I can say is the Lord truly is aware of us and answers prayers. We were guided throughout the whole day and are always as long as we are obedient, have desires to follow him, and ask for his help. 

Have a great and safe week everyone!

New Beginnings
Helloo everyone!! 
I hope you all had a Merry Christmas :D We can sure feel the love of the members here, especially from all the food they share with us. Truly, we are so blessed. This week alone I think I've eaten the most cake than that in the entire time I've been serving a mission. Ooh we ate a lot of sugar and candy and food from the dinners and such haha They are all so sweet and give us little things here and there but all good... And now we anticipate the new year how excited 2016!!! 

This year of 2015 went by so super fast, have absolutely no idea where it went but the thing I love about a new year is the goals that we set and clearly we have the chance always or rather anytime of the year to set goals however I love the beginning too because it gives us that perspective of 365 days, what is it we want to accomplish or reflect on what we want to improve. When setting goals, it is also, of course, important to assure that they be SMART goals. For those of you who maybe at the moment don't know or can't remember.. SMART goals are goals that are Specific, Measurable, Applicable, Realistic, and with Time. 

I have already set my goals and desires for this year. When setting goals it is also recommendable.. is that a word?... or just recommended?... you decide haha well it is a good idea to of course, consult the Lord in His will for us. We may have things in mind but so does He, so we need to be able to aline our will with His. 

I know that as we constantly look to Him for guidance and assurance, He will direct us. It sometimes may be a scary thing, to completely trust in Him, but as we practice that willingness, He will bless us even more. I personally like to consider more than we can imagine :)

Hermana Carbajal and I are doing great, she is wonderful, just awesome, I feel like I hardly need to train her because she learns so fast and on her own applies everything. We are having a bit of difficulties right now with a lot of people to teach but we keep on trying. I hope that we can each do our part and try a little harder to be better than yesterday and serve others the best we can. And I know that if we don't have that desire, we can pray and ask for it so that we can become like Jesus Christ, God's only begotten son. Have a great week and Happy New Year!!!!!

Going back..
Hello one and all! I apologize I've be so inconsistent with these emails. I've repented and I'm going to be better lol 

How is everyone? I hope you liked the video ''A Savior is Born''. If you haven't visited the webpage I invite you to check it out because there is another small video that's really good too I think it's called something like ''The World Without a Savior''. That whole webpage for Christmas is amazing, really special :) Here it is again if you need it's easy to remember:

Well, I have to say being in the mission has had it's suprises. I didn't expect this transfer to be returning back to my second area when I came to Cancún the first time. We had changes yesterday or transfers and I have a new companion. I am now finishing the training of another missionary who is new to the mission. Her name is Hermana Carbajal. (Sister Car-ba-hall) She is from Honduras! Really sweet, down to earth and has a lot of compassion. 

I am excited to train her or more like help her finish training because when a missionary first comes to the mission, they receive an in-field training of 12 weeks and she already finished 5 so I get to help her with the 7 that are left! Yay :)

I think the Heavenly Father sent me back here because obviously there is something I need to learn that I didn't the first time and as well, find the families that have their hearts open and willing to recieve the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I hope that with our prayers, diligence, hard work, patience, desire to love and obedience, we will have sucess in finding and helping them change their lives for the better by receiving the saving ordinances of the Gospel. 

Have a great week to all and remember to share the video ''A Savior is Born'' with everyone! Because everyone needs to know why and that it happened that a savior was born and that savior is the Lord Jesus Christ. I know His Atonement is real, I've lived it, I love it, I hunger to have it in my life. I know this is true. I humbly share and testify in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

With much love,

The Desire to Serve
What a crazy two weeks it has been! 
We are running around like crazy meeting new people, striving to have lessons with members, encouraging the recent converts, having our days fully planned with more work to do than there is time! Huhh! We're a little exhausted.

I would like to briefly share a few tender mercies or miracles that we had this week. A samll one, a member called us and invited us over to his house for this Thursday for Thanksgiving! To celebrate with him and his wife, I thought it was so sweet. He is really thoughtful. And well when we had exchanges I was with another sister missionary and we found a new investigator who was tending her clothes and asked if she wanted help. (They always say no but we still ask in hopes one day someone accepts our service) Well she said no but said we could enter in her home to share our message. I loved seeing the light in her eyes when she understood and her question was answered by reading, deciphering the scriptures and she was so happy we taught about the importance of baptism and she accepted. We put a baptismal date for the 26th of December and at first she said no but really sweetly explained it was only because she wasn't going to be here for those dates haha. So we're going to be visiting her more, her name is Elda :) 
Well as I mentioned, we've been a little tired running around everywhere (our area is a bit large) but Hermana Bloomfield is so amazing and I'm so happy we're companions and together again. We have learned different things while serving a mission and I am so greatful for her grand example and desire to love, serve, do so diligently and obey with exactness. I feel like she is helping me more than I am helping her because she is truly an admirable servant of the Lord. 

We can truly testify that the Lord is hastening His work. And He needs the help of everyone to carry it out! Well, technically He doesn't need us because He could accomplish it on His own but we have the privelage to be a part of it and honestly, we need that. Some may know and others may have yet to recognize it but nevertheless, it is a commandment to be obedient in all that the Lord asks of us and that includes sharing the gospel in however way grand or small. And as we serve others, we love them and are able to obtain that testimony and witness of what is true and as we love and increase our faith, so does our desire to serve. And I'm not talking about having to be a full-time missonary to do so either. 
But by being an example and doing our part to follow the Lord, we are able to walk in His ways. After all, that is the ultimate goal. So I challenge you to think about how you can serve as the Lord would have you serve. Ask Him, what He would have You do and testify that He will let you know, He will answer you, through the Holy Spirit who, if you listen, and obey, will guide you in all you do. Be safe and have a great week!

With Love,

  Hermana Newman 😊

Each week I await that first email from each of my missionaries.   It brings their old dad comfort in knowing they are alive and well.   I can't imagine how my parents did it for me.  So when I don't hear I anxiously await again the next day and sure enough, my mind is put to ease. Such was the case this week with Natalie.   

Hi daddy! Sorry I didn't write yesterday it was a long story but im alive and well and am just writing to let you know im fine :) so glad jason is home. Love you! Have a great week!

Your Hermana Newman❤

Now I want to hear what happened.  😏

I'm Alive, I'm Well, but a little Tired!

I'm alive haha sorry it's so late writing today but all is well however I'm a little tired haha but then again I feel that way often now and then again :)


So today we had transfers! That's in part why it was so stressful. And because of transfers that's why I'm writing super late, it's a long story but it was also stressful because we had to view the travel plans for the sisters in our area and we were making calls for that at 6:30 am, shopping for groceries and helping my companion with her luggage at the same time finding a taxi to go home and such, huh, well that and more is why I have just felt like a chicken running around with it's head cut off haha un poco loca ;) BUT the good news is I stay in my same area called Palmas 2 but I have a new companion, guess who! Remember Hermana Bloomfield? My companion from the MTC? We're back together again! And as Sister Training Leaders :D

I am really happy, really excited actually to be with her, she has so much animo and it will really help the sisters. I am excited to get the chance to work with her again and now that we have adjusted to mission life and everything. It will be different but better :) We have already talked about some goals and that we are anticipated to work and work hard. 


And I am soooo so excited Elder Hart will be in Barrio Palmas with us because he is awesome, really good missionary who has that spark and knows how to work. We are going to put the members to work. I am so excited about the new, haha ''new'' key indicators and I know it will change the mission because it will push us more to work harder and with the members; to get them involved in the missionary work, serve, and to help strengthen their own testimonies.


We recently have had new instruction to have a different emphasis or focus with the Key indicators and that's why I say they're new but they're not really new simply we are changing the focus and our plans are to work more closely with the members because that is really how missionary work is supposed to happen. Missionary work isn't about the ''missionaries''. It's about the Lord and His children. Every single member is really a missionary simply the title we have recieved is full-time missionaries and we are nothing more than an instrument, a tool in the Lord's hands for the work to press on. I know it's true and I hope we can all see more miracles as we are obedient to the Lord's commandments of this I testify in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen. Love you all! Have a great week!

Jason November 10, 2015 Final letter from the field

Hello family!!

well, I am very grateful for these 2 years that i have had to serve the Lord Jesus Christ in this formal way. to be totally honest, i don't really know what to write right now...we are currently in the mission offices, waiting for our final interviews with President Chavez. I am "companions" with Elder Smith, one of my best friends in the whole mission, who fortunately also lives in Lehi, those of you who will be in the airport to greet me will also be able to meet him. But yes...we are here in the offices, and today i think is gonna be a looong day of reflection and laughs with those of us who are departing from this labor of Love. 

I know this may not be a long letter, because just as John wrote with the miracles of Jesus, I too feel the same in regards to the Mission memories and experiences, that "the which, if they should be written every one, i suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written". Simply put, I testify of Jesus Christ and of the divinity and reality of his Great and everlasting work of salvation. The Mission truly changes one, and i think the biggest change I saw in myself is really having in mind the eternal perspective of things. I have grown closer to my savior more in these 2 years than ever in my life, and I know that he loves me. Jesus Christ truly did appear to Joseph Smith, along with our Loving Heavenly Father, and through a series of events, the Gospel and the Preisthood Keys which govern this earth, were restored, and that allows you, me, and all our families to participate in authorized ordinances and return to the presence of the Father. Please, make it the most important thing in your life to obtain a testimony of Jesus Christ and His atonement, and stay true to that testimony. I have recieved it, and am excited to preach it to all. Thank you all for your infinite love and support. 

 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season;reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.

 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.

 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

......In the sacred name of our Master, Jesus Christ, Amen.

Believe in God, Belive that He is
Hello everyone! 

How was this last week? For us it was hot.. again haha looks like the raining season has past. I figured out that instead of ''April's showers bring May flowers'' in Cancun it's October's rain brings more heat and then ''cold''. From the humidity it gets more hot but afterwards more into November and December is what here they call ''cold''. It's that time of year again where we will see hoodies and sweatshirts and coats and gloves and hats not from the tourists but the people who live here in CANCUN! It's crazy to me, their Winter is like our Spring lol

In other news, things are better with our recent converts, their all attending church again wahoo! Hermano Mauro and his wife are doing good and we are finding more investigators. Still no one who accepts a baptism date but at least the majority accept baptism :) We're still working on that. 

This is the last week before transfers again and I have no idea what will happen because there are so many options, I could stay in my same area again and with my Hermana Carrasco again as Sister Training Leaders but we have had now 4 and half months together or one of us could leave, it's my companion's last transfer and sometimes President grants the wishes of a missionary if they want to be with a specific companion or in a certain place for their last transfer. Then again, I could train someone because I still haven't had that opportunity so who knows! 

What I do know is that if we want to survive in this life it is to rely on the Lord, have faith in Him, beliving that He is as King Benjamin teaches us in Mosiah 4:9. He is the only way to true happiness. This life is not easy, it's supposed to be hard. But if we lose our faith, it will be difficult to keep going. I hope each one of you can give yourself TIME to read, study, ponder the scriptures daily, and seek the Lord in sincere prayer. He will tell us what it is we need to do, afterall, the prophets have promised it themselves that He is there and He will listen if we will just believe in Him and submit ourselves to His will. I know we can do it! And perservere until the end, endure to the end. 

Lots of Love,

Hermana Newman :)

The Thorns in the Roses 

Happy Monday it's Preparation Day! Haha maybe not happy Monday for you since the weekend is now over but for us it's a bit of a breather.

A few weeks ago as we were walking to an appointment the thought popped into my mind.. Why did Heavenly Father create Roses with thorns? Honestly I cannot tell you why I had been thinking of such a peculiar thought, sort of random out of nowhere but nevertheless it was an interesting thought and I decided to ask my companion what she thought. She said didn't know, clearly but I kept thinking and then we talked about possibilities for the why. I mentioned that maybe it's because if there weren't any thorns, we couldn't appreciate the effort it took to grow nor the beauty of the rose. 

This new perspective made me remember of the reason in general why there is opposition in all things, because we would not be able to appreciate the good from the bad and we wouldn't rely on the Lord if we always have ''good times'' because even though we should remember Him in the good we somehow always seem to remember Him more in the bad.

Well these last few weeks we have, seen those thorns amonst the roses. Our ''awesome'' and who we thought was ''super prepared'' investigator Adriana stopped talking to us and we have no idea why. She doesn't answer our calls and when she did say two times she would be home to visit her she wasn't present. Her husband however Jaime is so so great! He is interested in listening and yesterday went to church for the second time wahoo! We have the hope that as we teach him, Adriana will want to listen again or at least tell us why she got ''cold feet'' on us. 😕

Other ''thorns'' that have come our way is other recent converts having difficulty assisting church regularly for various reasons, including Mauro, Carlos and Sandra. But not because of their lack of testimony, I hope, but more because of things that take them away from being consistent in keeping their baptismal covenants. Also, the rain from the hurricane that was close to the state of Quintana Roo. And many other little things. 

I think mainly too I still lack a little... a lot of faith. But every day is another chance, another oportunity to keep going, keep trying and doing all that is in my power to increase my faith. While I am working on my faith, I am coming to know and remember that Heavenly Father loves me, He is aware of me, and as I pray and plead to Him for His help, He helps me calm my fears. 

This week was a little tough, or better yet these last two weeks, because we have to find new investigators. When we were finding new investigators after the baptism of Carlitos and Mauro, they weren't progressing quickly enough for baptism so we decided to keep finding new investigators but in the process of doing so, satan decided to come and swoop in with discouragement and doubt so they began to not be progressing again. With the investigators we do have more or less progressing, they have accepted baptism but not a baptismal date. So that's where we are right now, and I feel bad because as STL's we are supposed to be setting the example but we don't have any ''baptism canditates'' right now :( That is one part of why I say I think I still lack a lot of faith, like my mission President wrote me this week, faith to find, faith to baptize. So we keep the hope, we keep on praying and keep on striving to change and become like Christ. 

I hope that you all have a great week! And remember to be greatful for the thorns because with out them we wouln't have the roses. I will do my best to do so as well. 

Lots of Love,

Hermana Newman

A more spiritual week. :)

This week was a great week!! first of all, i want to thank all for the birthday wishes! i love being 21...even though i have only been it for a day, it feels good. Im grateful to be here on the earth, and that Heavenly Father sllows me to be here to participate in this great work of salvation. 

So, i learned a lot this week. its crazy how much one learns at the end of the misison, and especially from my companion who is at the beginning of his mission. This week, i learned an extremely valuable lesson, and it has to do with regognizing weaknesses. so, ever since about may or so, i had asked myself for the first time "what are my weaknesses?", and i couldnt answer that question. but this week i was ablw to answer it, and now i know that if i Go unto heavenly father in prayer with that said weakeness, he will help me turn it into a strength and i will be able to be humbled and my faith in him will increase. the weakness, though hard to explain, is this: Feeling sorrow and sadness from the unfavorable choices of others, and not thinking i can be happy until the situation is how i want it to be. for example, amaris, the girl who got baptized about a week ago, for lots of complicated reasons, still hasnt gotten confirmed, and so i felt A not only sad about that, but B felt that i could never be happy again until she did et confirmed. but i know thats wrong--we cannot base our happiness or unhappiness solely upon the choices of others. because though it was my will for her to get confirmed ASAP, out of desire for her to progress espiritually, perhaps thats not what the Lord ewanted, and in the end, my will really doesnt matter. ever. i learned that true happiness only comes from doing the will of him who has called me to be a missionary: the Lord Jesus Christ.

the hardest part of the mission, i learned, is not the leaving the family or home or friends, or the trials in the two year time lapse, rather its the departure of the field. in short, the hardest part of the mission is leaving it. I know that in these next 2 weeks I am gonna work hard and am going to focus in on the Lords will and not so much the will of the Zone Leaders or the Assistants, to be sure that the Lords Kingdom is edified. i love the mission so much, and i have never learned so much in such a short time before. 

We are very excited about Rosy and Rodolfo, who finally after 4 years of waiting are now able to get married and baptized!! the plan is that they get married this friday, i believe, and that saturday they will be baptized. I love them, though i wasnt really there for the time of teaching them, and i desire their happiness and spiritual progression. more details and hopefully next week, pictures, to follow. 

I wanted to share, also, my favorite personal study of this week. In Mosiah 15, we read about how Christ is both the Father and the Son. there is a lot of confusion in regards to who is god, and lots of churches believe that there is only one physical supreme being. we know that there are three, the father, the son, and the holy Ghost, and we know that Christ is the son of the Living god. but, how is Christ also our father? 
1. He is the creator of all things and is therefore referred to in many scriptural passages as "the very eternal father of heaven and of earth" (mosiah 15:4, Mosiah 16:15, ether 4:7, alma 11: 38-39)
2. He is the father of all who accept his atonong sacrifice and covenant with him to obey his everlasting gospel, or in other words, those who are baptized (Mosiah 5:7, mosiah 15: 10-13)
3. He is the Father by "divine investiture of Authority". this means that the savior is a fully authorized and commissioned representative of his Father, that whatever he does as executor of the fathers will has permanent and binding effect since its performed by the fathers agent.

I hope that we can all look to follow the savior better in al things, and that he may always be our example. I know that He lives and is my father, because i belong to him by covenant, yet he is the Son of the Living God, our Heavenly Father. I testify that they live, and that the only way to eternal happiness is living the restored gospel and partaking of the ordinances thereof by the proper authority. I say these things, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen. I love you all and have a great week!!!

The nitty gritty 

hey everyone!! sorry this one will be really short, but i had to email some church leaders back home and what not. 

wow, this week my companion and i really learned what it meant to get things done, and that that has a lot to do with being a leader. simultaneously, however, none of that was us, rather the Lord provided the way(s) for us to be able to find her, visit her, and he ultimately provided the way for her to get baptized on saturday. i know that as we humble ourselves and recognize his hand in Everything that we do, we will have a greater love for him and our desire to serve him will grow! that was by far the biggest portion of news this last week, and in addition, we are hopefully gonna have 2 more this week: rosy and Rodolfo. we love them and are excited to be witnesses for their wedding!! more details to come. 

well, please everyone know that i love you all and that i know that this church is true, being the same one that Christ himself established whilst being here upon the earth. have a great week and dont forget to say your prayers!!

Natalie sends her love she apologizes that she did not have a chance to really do a letter today.  She says....."not much new happened this week anyway lol actually it was raining all week almost again, since like Thursday but everyday all day since then :( And we have some investigators who are having difficulties progressing:( Other than that, things are fine, I have felt some discouragement but maybe in part its the rain's fault."
