So so so HAPPY!!


I am just so so so happy to be a missionary this morning:) Sometimes i don't know how i am so happy because i will be SOOOOOOO tired but it just happens i am so happy to be serving in Everett and to be on a mission!:) Ahh. I love the mission spirit, i love learning and growing and becoming more and more converted to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

There are so many things on my mind that i would love to share and as always i wish i could share them all. 

First things first. It is the Gospel. the GOOD NEWS that makes me so happy and by seeing the effects that it has made in others lives. To have a "front row" seat it an opportunity and a privilege. The other day we were at a training for the new missionaries and as i sat there listening to President Bonham a wave a emotion overcame me and i knew at that moment that i wouldn't want to be anywhere else but here, and it is at those moments that i cannot deny the love that my Father in Heaven has for me, and i know that i am able to feel his love through the power and gift of the Holy Ghost. Last night we were able to go to a fireside if we were able to bring investigators with us. We were able to go and to my surprise it was at a ward that i had previously served in. I was able to see so many of the ward members that i grew to love so much and i was also able to see a family that i was able to teach a little bit. This man bore his testimony on his experience and why he decided to become a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. WOW. It was such a neat experience to be able to hear his testimony of the power of the Book of Mormon. The gospel had truly changed this mans life as well as his family. He is now happily married and i can see the light that he has. HE is GLOWING. That is what the gospel can do for us., and i know that The Book of Mormon can and will change lives IF we read it. That is something i know. As i read from it i cannot deny that it is inspired scripture written for us, and because i know it is true i believe that Joseph Smith saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. 

I love this gospel and i know its true!:) 

In a couple weeks the state of Washington is going to be so blessed! Elder Oaks will be coming and we are going to be able to go to a special conference with one of our investigators! We are so excited

:) more to come on that later. 

i love you all so much. 
thank you for all the support and for being awesome!
love, Sister Norton:)
