July 3-9

Hey y'all!
It's been a pretty good week! We've been busy!
This week we are moving apartments, in the same complex but a new
apartment. It's been crazy trying to pack everything up! Here's my
updated mailing address:

4315 Lexington Rd. Apt. 12F
Athens, GA
30605

We've had a lot going on! We had a meet the new mission president
meeting which was fun, President and Sister Marsh are great! He's got
some great plans for the mission, I'm sad I won't get to stick around
for much longer. We also had interviews and MLC so lots of meetings.
The 4th of July was pretty good, we didn't get to do anything too
exciting. We were hoping there was a parade or something fun we could
go contact people at, but apparently there was nothing in Athens. We
went on a little exchange with the UGA Sisters and tracted for most of
the day. We got to talk to lots of people, but nobody was to eager or
excited to talk to us.

Also I think I've mentioned a little about Cheryl, she's a lady we've
been working a lot with, and she's getting baptized!!!! She left the
church about 30 years ago (like removed her name from the records and
everything) but recent life events have led her back to the church!
We've taught her a lot and she's made so much progress, and this week
she met with her bishop and he gave her permission to be re-baptized!
I am so excited and happy for her! I almost cried when she told us she
committed to be baptized again!! She's the best.

We had a cool experience last night while we were tracting! We were
waiting on a doorstep and I pulled at my iPad to look something up but
then they opened the door and I awkwardly had my iPad in my hand, so I
asked if we could share a video with them! He said yes, and left for a
minute to pull his dogs away and brought out his girlfriend. They
didn't seem super enthusiastic to watch the video but we shared the
"Because of Him" video and by the end Brooke was crying! She told us
about some trials she was going through and how she just wanted to
have God more in her life! It was so cool how the video softened their
hearts and they accepted a Book of Mormon and said we could come back!

D&C 6:36 "Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not."

Love y'all!

June 26-July 2

Hey y'all!
It's been a pretty great week! Being in a trio is awesome! Haha the
only thing stranger than 2 girls riding bikes in skirts (and in the
thunderstorm) is 3 girls! Our new companion is Sister Johnson, she's
from Idaho. It's been fun, we've had lots of adventures! Lots of
tracting and teaching and everything! We helped harvest potatoes at
the UGA horticulture farms, so that was fun! It's also been pretty
rainy, like every day. Saturday night we got caught biking in a huge
thunderstorm. The thunder was so loud and the lightning was striking
and the sidewalk turned into a river. You could see the dark clouds
rolling in with the wall of rain. We got so soaked, but luckily we
were able to stop at a member's house for a little while until the
storm passed through.

Our investigator Deitra is doing awesome! On Monday when we saw her
she told us that she's been praying really hard, especially on how to
help her family. She said one morning instead of getting up and
yelling at all the kids to get up and do chores, she just came
downstairs and read from the Book of Mormon, and as she was reading
she received some inspiration on how to better help her family and
better approach her situation! She's been progressing a lot! She's
still on date for baptism on July 29th!

1 Nephi 7:12 ​"Yea, and how is it that ye have forgotten that the Lord
is able to do all ​​​things​ according to his will, for the children
of men, if it so be that they exercise ​​​faith​ in him? Wherefore,
let us be faithful to him."

Love y'all! Happy 4th of July!

Now I have 2 companions!!

Hey y'all!
We got an exciting transfer call this week! I'm staying in Athens,
this will be my 5th transfer. I'm also staying with Sister Hansen,
which will be our 4th transfer together, and we're getting a 3rd
companion! We will be training a brand new missionary, so we don't
know her name yet. It will be an exciting transfer! We also get a new
mission president this week. This will be my last transfer it will be
the best one yet! Lots of great things are happening.

Our investigator Deitra is doing well, she accepted a baptism date for
the end of July! We are so excited for her and her family! She's been
reading and coming to church and making changes in her life, sometimes
without us inviting her to! She is so prepared for the gospel,
sometimes she'll do or say something that will make us wonder if she's
already a member!

There's also this other lady we've been working a lot with to come
back to the church. She had her records removed over 30 years ago but
is being led back to the church! We have had a lot of really great
lessons with her! Haha we even biked all the way to her apartment on
Friday since we had no car and no ride...it was 6.5 miles one way and
pretty intense hills. But we made it! Haha and she wasn't very happy
to find out we biked...but we had a good lesson!

We also have another investigator, Ruby, who is doing really well! We
finally got ahold of a large print Book of Mormon for her, and started
reading it with her. She told us her pastor told her not to talk to
us, but she didn't understand because we were so nice! And then as we
were reading through the introduction and the first chapter she told
us "Maybe I need to share this with my pastor, because this is the
truth!" The Book of Mormon has a lot of power!

On Thursday, long story short, I ended up in a trio for the day with
Sister Thorn and Lang on UGA! Both of them are former companions so it
was really fun! We contacted on campus, they have all the new student
orientation going on for the fall, so lots of people to talk to!

We had a cool experience Sunday night. When we were planning for the
day we had a couple streets we had chosen to tract, and there was one
street that I really felt like we needed to be on 8-9. Logically it
made sense to go there earlier in the day but for some reason I really
felt we needed to be there later. So from 8-9 we pulled into the
parking lot of the complex and started walking to the building we
wanted to start knocking and we passed a man taking out his trash. We
said hello and he got really excited! He didn't speak much English but
from what we gathered he was a member of the church and he got
baptized in Peru! He invited us over to his apartment and we met his
mom and wife. We had a pretty difficult time understanding him since
we don't know Spanish, but he was trying to ask us where the church
was, because he hasn't found it since he moved here to Georgia! So we
called the Spanish elders and got all his information! It was so cool
how we were led to be at that street and just the right time to meet
Pedro so he could find the church again.

Alma 34:14-15
"And behold, this is the whole meaning of the law, every whit pointing
to that great and last sacrifice; and that great and last sacrifice
will be the Son of God, yea, infinite and eternal.
And thus he shall bring salvation to all those who shall believe on
his name; this being the intent of this last sacrifice, to bring about
the bowels of mercy, which overpowereth justice, and bringeth about
means unto men that they may have faith unto repentance."

Love y'all!
Sister Taylor
 Our trio for the day on UGA!

 You can't really tell but we got so drenched biking home Saturday

night! We biked several miles in the pouring rain and it didn't
lighten up. It was an adventure!

June 13-19

Hey y'all!
It's been a pretty good week! Nothing too out of the ordinary
happened, just lots of finding and teaching and missionary work! We've
had a goal, as a mission, to get 70 contacts and 10 lessons in a week
and we were able to hit that, so we were really excited!

Deitra and her family are doing good! Her surgery went well, she
received a priesthood blessing beforehand, some members brought them
dinner and her daughter went to girls camp! It's been a little harder
getting in with them because she's recovering from her surgery, and
she will have a couple more in the upcoming weeks. But we call and
text her every day to keep the daily contact, and hoping our next
appointment that she's actually feeling up for a lesson we will be
able to put them on date!
Our investigator Brittney is also doing well, she was able to attend a
baptismal service in the Athens 2nd Ward this week! We didn't go, but
from what she told us it was a really good experience! We're hoping
this will help her receive her answer and want to be baptized, which
is what she's been stuck on.

This week as I was studying for some investigators and I came across an article
"It isn't a sin to be weak". I had read it before, but this week it
really stuck with me. It helped me see the difference between sin and
weakness. Being a missionary can be discouraging sometimes, just
because there is so much I can do to be better yet so little time to
do so, and I can get frustrated with myself for not being able to
contact everyone in just the right way or not teach all the principles
perfectly. But God has given us weaknesses as a part of mortality,
like it says in Ether 12:27, so we can be humble. God doesn't expect
us to be perfect, but he does expect us to strive to be better. And we
can't overcome our weaknesses on our own, but we can't expect God to
just take them from us either. It's through the grace of Jesus Christ
we canovercome them. It takes a lot of time and patience and humility,
because we can't change overnight. That's a big thing I've learned on
my mission, to be more humble and patient with myself in overcoming
weaknesses, but still doing my part and being anxiously engaged in
striving to do better.

Love y'all, have a fantastic week!

June 6-12

Hey y'all!
It's been a great week! We've been busy, lots of teaching and finding!
We also had a really good zone conference this week!
Deitra and her family are doing really well, the ward has been getting
really involved with them and excited about them! She has 2 kids who
are youth and Bishop is really excited because his kids are like the
only youth in the ward, and he told us they've been praying for more
youth to come in! Deitra's kids are loving all the youth activities
and they're both going to the youth camp outs this summer as well!
We're super excited for them! Haha now all we really need to do is
actually put them on date for baptism.

Lately, with the people we've been teaching, I've been able to see
just how involved God is in their lives, and how much He loves them.
It's been really cool to see, and I realized that if He loves them
that much, then He loves me that much too.

Romans 8:28 "And we know that all things work together for good to
them that love God, to them who are the called according to his
purpose."

Love y'all! Have a great week!

may 24-30

Hey y'all!
It's been a pretty great week! We've knocked on a lot of doors. Things
are slowing down a bit, I think it's just because it's summer in a
college town so a lot of people leave. But there's still lots of work
to do! Since yesterday was Memorial Day our preparation day was moved,
and we went on a little exchange with the UGA Sisters, they both came
to our area and we split up and knocked on a lot of doors, we got to
talk to lots of people that were home for the holiday! I was with
Sister Thorn, it was fun to go on exchanges with her since we were
companions for a while back in the fall! We also had a lot of random
people give us food too, so that was cool! One of our investigators
randomly made us food to go and one of our recent converts also
spontaneously invited us to dinner! And on Friday we were biking down
the road and a member sees us and pulls over, and invites us to come
to lunch with them!

Connie and her family are good! We've been able to see them several
times a week. One challenge with them is her children, Lincoln and
Jennifer, are progressing much faster than Connie is. It's been a
struggle for them to keep commitments, but we're doing all we can to
help them see the importance and provide the means for them to be able
to keep the commitments. Jennifer and Lincoln both really want to be
baptized, but Connie still isn't sure. Hopefully as her kids work
towards that she will be able to have that desire for herself as well.

We had a cool experience with a lady we're working with! Last week
week I had led out the lesson and after we were done she turned to
Sister Hansen and told her she's really quiet, so next time she had to
lead out the lesson. The morning of Sister Hansen was pretty nervous,
she kept telling me she had no idea what to share but I couldn't
really help, it was her lesson and the lady we're teaching would know
if I had told her what to share. She felt prompted to share "The
Living Christ", but had no idea why or how that would help her. I
encouraged her to go with the prompting and she did. While we were in
the lesson, right before we were about to read through it together, I
mentioned that Sister Hansen had it memorized, and she got really
excited and asked to hear it memorized. It was exactly what she needed
to hear that day, not necessarily the document "The Living Christ",
but the fact that Sister Hansen had it memorized from the heart really
impressed her. The spirit knows what she needs, even if we don't. We
just have to trust the spirit's promptings even if it doesn't make
sense!

"True disciples of Jesus Christ are willing to stand out, speak up,
and be different from the people of the world. They are undaunted,
devoted, and courageous." -President Nelson

Love y'all, have a great week!

Today for preparation day we went to

May 15-23

Hey y'all!
It's been a pretty good week! It's just been really busy but lots of
finding at the same time. I feel like there's always a million things
to do and I can never keep track of it all! But it all somehow works
out! This week was like a repeat of last week, I got another flat bike
tire and it poured a ton of rain! Except all in the same night. We
walked out the door after dinner and we realized somehow my bike tire
had gone flat in the last hour...we tried to fix it but it was because
apparently we had fixed it wrong last week when it went flat so I just
needed a new tube. And then the sky poured out all the rain. We
decided to walk over to Walmart since it was so close and contact
people there.
Our investigators Kim and Barry are doing well! They're always happy
to meet with us and enjoyed church, but they have yet to read on their
own. We always talk about the importance of reading but it just
doesn't seem to be a priority. So this week we just read from the Book
of Mormon with them, and at the end Kim said the closing prayed and
asked if the Book of Mormon is true! It was so cool! Now the trick is
helping them connect that desire to actually reading and praying.
Sometimes the Spanish elders will find someone and refer them to us
with a specific appointment, this week they gave us a referral with an
appointment this Saturday morning and it was pretty far and we didn't
have the car so we had to find a member ride. Unfortunately we were
not able to get ahold of the referral before hand and she wasn't there
when we showed up. We had a couple other investigators in the area so
we picked our investigator, Ruby, to go see with our team up since we
had driven all the way out there. She was the perfect member to go
visit Ruby with, just looking at both of them you wouldn't think
they'd connect well together but it turns out that our team up had
gone through a lot of the things Ruby is going through, and she was
able to share some scriptures and experiences that really helped Ruby!
It's always cool to see how things all work out even though they don't
work the way we plan it to!

"The Final Judgment is not just an evaluation of a sum total of good
and evil acts--what we have done. It is an acknowledgment of the final
effect of our acts and thoughts--what we have become. It is not enough
for anyone just to go through the motions. The commandments,
ordinances, and covenants of the gospel are not a list of deposits
required to be made in some heavenly account. The gospel of Jesus
Christ is a plan that shows us how to become what our Heavenly Father
desires us to become." -Elder Oaks ("The Challenge to Become")

May 8 - May 14

Hey y'all!
It's been an exciting week! Transfers are this week, but both Sister
Hansen and I are staying in Athens! This will be our 3rd transfer here
together, it will be a good one! We've been biking a ton this week,
and lots more biking to come. There's a new policy with cars/mileage
allotments which dramatically decreases how much we can use the car,
so we're ready to bike! (Haha and get some really awesome tans from
being out biking in the sun all the time). I'm a little worried
because it's staring to get really hot and humid really fast, but
we'll survive. Friday we biked almost 20 miles. I also got a flat bike
tire and somehow Sister Hansen and I figured out how to patch it up!
Then our car also got a flat tire. Haha that one we had to take to pep
boys. And we also got caught in the rain on our bikes with no jackets
or umbrellas. The weather is so unpredictable. It's 90 degrees in the
morning, it starts to sprinkle rain in the a few minutes later the
water pours down like the sky is a faucet. Also if y'all remember the
awkward guy we met at the bus stop last week that asked us out...we
were knocking on doors Saturday morning and tracted into him. Haha he
was like wait are y'all the ladies who I met at the bus stop last week
and one of you fell off your bike? Yep....

I also went on exchanges with Sister Evans to UGA, that went well. It
was hard because not too many people were on campus (since the
semester ended a couple weeks ago) but we walked around and even went
out to the streets in downtown Athens by all the shops and we had some
pretty good contacts! It's like a whole different kind of missionary
work being on a college campus contacting people.

Things have been going pretty well with Connie and her family, it
works out really well to just drop by every night for the last 15
minutes or so to teach a quick lesson. I've definitely been able to
see the difference from when we taught them before once a week to now
dropping by almost every night for just a couple minutes. Lincoln
really wants to be baptized but his mom and sister aren't sure if they
want to yet. The only hold up for him is that he is having a hard time
progressing when the rest of his family aren't on board yet. Last
Friday night we stopped by to see Connie and her family (and we were
biking) but they were sick so we couldn't stay. As soon as they closed
the door it starts pouring rain on us, like the rain was coming down
so hard we couldn't even see. After about 10 seconds we were drenched,
but didn't have anywhere to go to be dry. We start walking back to our
bikes and this lady comes up to us with and gives us an umbrella! She
saw is out walking completely soaked and felt bad for us so she wanted
to help us! She invited us to come inside her house for a few minutes
so we could dry off (the best we could), and after a few minutes the
rain lightened up so we could bike home. It was a huge tender mercy
and really showed us that God is looking out for us. Even though this
work is hard and sometimes we will get caught in the rain (or all the
other situations we get caught in) this is the Lord's work and he is
very aware of us!

D&C 6:34, 36
"Therefore, fear not, little flock; do good; let earth and hell
combine against you, for if ye are built upon my rock, they cannot
prevail.
Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not."

may 1-7

It's been a great week! We've been super busy, we had Zone Conference
and MLC and I also went on exchanges to Braselton this week, and  and
then today we had to drive all around the zone to do apartment clean
checks for the sisters. Our investigators are doing really well! Kim
and Barry are awesome! They came to church on Sunday, we were so
excited! Deitra and her family are doing well too, they didn't make it
to church because something came up, but they're still excited to be
baptized. We've been making sure we contact them every day, and we
usually send a scripture every morning and one morning we forgot, and
she texted us and asked what happened, why we hadn't texted her yet!
Keeping us accountable!
Last week some of our former investigators reached out to us asking us
to come by (Connie and Lincoln) and we were able to see them! They
still have the desire to learn and be baptized but they just had
gotten really busy and hadn't made the gospel really a priority, and
then they gave us permission to just drop by whenever and to have
daily contact to help them stay on track!

We also had several people randomly call us, which doesn't normally
happen! People we met a while ago and gave a card and something made
them decide to get in contact with us again! One guy called us but
then said he wasn't interested when he realized we were missionaries.
Another lady called us as well and set up an appointment with her! It
went pretty well, she had some questions for us, but we're not sure
how interested she is in continuing to learn. Also this week we were
biking down the road and there was one part where Sister Hansen like
fell off her bike but I was like stopping at a bus stop to contact a
guy waiting and it was kind of awkward...but we gave him a card and
later that day he actually texted us! But then he asked us out instead
so that was even more awkward.....we explained we were full time
missionaries and the only thing we do is serve and teach others about
Jesus. He said he wanted to learn but we'll probably send the Elders.

"He wants to change more than just our behaviors. He wants to change
our very natures. He wants to change our hearts.
He wants us to reach out and take firm hold of the iron rod, confront
our fears, and bravely step forward and upward along the strait and
narrow path. He wants this for us because He loves us and because this
is the way to happiness." -President Uchtdorf

happy may!

It's been a good week in Athens, things are starting to pick up! We
have investigators who will actually meet with us and do their best to
keep commitments! We had 5 (from 2 different families) who told us
they would come to church on Sunday, but then when sacrament meeting
started nobody had showed up yet. I felt pretty let down, since we had
talked to both of them on the phone Saturday night and Sunday morning
and they all said they were coming. When there was only 15 minutes
left of sacrament meeting 3 of them showed up (Deitra and her kids)
and then halfway through gospel principles Barry showed up! We were so
happy that they came, even though they were all late. They all loved
the classes and told us they'd be back next week too!
Our investigators Deitra and her family are doing well! We had a good
lesson with Deitra this week, things were a bit crazy with her kids
and grandkids so we were only able to teach her, but she accepted a
baptism date for June 3rd! They were an hour late to church, but they
made it! She brought 2 of her kids, Patricia and Will. Since it was
the 5th Sunday everyone was combined for the 3rd hour, and they were
talking about the stake goals for this year and how each family can
make their own goals to go along with that, and then had us split off
into groups to discuss. While we were talking about it Deitra's
daughter said she wanted to get baptized, and she accepted June 3 as a
baptism date as well! And then after we were finished discussing each
group shared their goals, and Deitra told everyone her goal was to
continue studying to make it to her baptism date! We're very excited
for them!
Barry was the other investigator who showed up late to church, he
loved it as well! He told us that he got lost, but finally found the
church! He almost decided not to come in because he was so late, but
he decided that because he would be late to his church too he might as
well just stay for ours, and he really enjoyed it! He was able to meet
lots of people and he said he'd come back next week with his wife! We
were able to have a good lesson with them this week, we talked a lot
about the importance of priesthood authority and baptism. They weren't
ready to accept a date, but said they want to continue learning and
studying!

experience, one challenge, one setback, and one success at a time."

adventures and miracles april 17-23

Hey y'all! 
It's been a pretty great week!! This week we found 3 solid families to teach (resulting in 5 new investigators)! The first 2 were Barry and Kim. Monday night we were tracting, and the very first door that answered was Barry! His wife wasn't home, so we taught him the restoration briefly on the porch, invited him to be baptized, and he said yes. We got a return appointment on Wednesday, and he and his wife were both there and really excited to learn more and read the Book of Mormon! The next 2 were Will and his mom Deitra. Sister Cardon and I (on exchanges) found them tracting last week, nothing to out of the ordinary happened, Will just told us he was busy and asked us to come back next Wednesday evening. This Wednesday we were on exchanges again, and this time Sister Hansen and Evans were in Athens, so they were going into this appointment kind of blind, since it was Sister Cardon and I who had knocked on their door. But they showed up and it turns out that Sister Evans knows Will, she had contacted him on a bus a couple weeks ago, and she knew more about him than I did! It was a really cool miracle how we were all right where we needed to be, at first just Will was listening but as they taught him, his mom was listening and pretty soon she was super interested in the Book of Mormon too! She also has 2 other daughters who we hopefully will be able to start teaching as well! The last one is Nika and her 2 little kids, she's the one who the Elders had met and referred to us, and then we tracted into her as well. We were able to have a good lesson with her, and committed her to read and pray about the Book of Mormon, and she is so excited to come to church with her kids!  The Lord led us to those who were prepared, and because of the power of the Book of Mormon they were all willing to continue to meet with us! We are so excited for all of them!

Lots of little adventures here and there this week. I went to Monroe on exchanges, and we had a lesson where a lady Bible bashed us for a while...and then that evening we were tracting and got kicked out of a neighborhood. But then we tracted in a different neigborhood and met and contacted a lot of people! On Monday night while we were tracting we met some ladies who let us inside and talked to us for a bit. One told us she was an apostle, and then the other told me she could sense my shortness of breath (I had a cold plus allergies) and then told me she had the gift of healing and was going to pray over me and heal me.....and I was just thinking ummm this is kind of sketchy.....but I think she could tell I was a bit uneasy about it so she didn't do anything. They were very nice ladies though! Yesterday it poured all day, and we tracted in the rain for a while! We were so wet, but it also worked to our advantage because a lot of people let us inside for a couple minutes! Haha but I'm pretty sure they all thought we were crazy. The rain was coming down pretty hard.

I testify that everyone can be a disciple of the Savior. … Now is the time to recommit ourselves to being His disciples with all diligence." -Elder Hales

Love y'all!
