International Parker Ayer is Great Day!!


FELIZ CUMPLEAÑOS, PARKER ALAN AYER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You´re the best ñaño who has 19 years that I´ve ever known! I hope you have such a wonderful day. Know that I love you and am thinking about you! Everyone says the best preparation for the mission is to read PMG, and it´s just do it. I know you have, but do it more. haha

Also, HAPPY FATHER´S DAY yesterday!!! And this week, happy birthday to Brittany Howell and Megan Wernig! So many special occasions, and know that I love you all.

I haven´t read your email yet, so I don´t know if anyone gave a talk on Mother´s or Father´s Day, but I think I´m going to start a new tradition here on the mission...Stake Conference. On Mother´s Day in my last area, we had stake conference, and yesterday we had District Conference (ya mismo una estaca). Let me tell you, conferences are nuts here. We try to bring as many investigators as possible to the conferences, especially when Presidente Montalti is going to be there...and he´s been at both of these conferences. It was so nuts and we were really tired running around to all the people on our list, but today we finally get some rest.

Yesterday for Father´s Day, we ate lunch at Elder and Hermana Hansen´s house. They´re a senior missionary couple that live 2 houses down from us and are practically our grandparents here on the mission. Hermana Hansen always makes us cookies and takes good care of us. Yesterday after lunch, we still had a little time left, so we played spoons and........DON´T EAT PETE!!!!!!! It was a little different of a version, but I made sure we chanted and everything. It was so great, and definitely a tender mercy from the Lord.

This week, we almost lost 3 baptisms. One woman we are teaching came out of our house and told us she didn't want to come to church this Sunday, and was flustered with everything, making every excuse in the book. It was a miracle because her nephew came to her house by surprise, and he´s a member. He helped us out and the Spirit was so strong when I testified to her of the truthfulness of the church. I shared 3 Nephi 13: 32-33. I know the church is true, and this was definitely a test of my faith and trust in the Lord. I know He is watching over each and everyone of us and loves us. If we put our trust in Him, he will help us in every aspect of our lives.

This week we have 4 baptisms. Pray that everything goes well this week!

I love you all!!

Hermana Ayer

P.S. I hope you´re having fun with Karen and Kirsten!

P.P.S. This week, another person asked if I was from Spain, and one asked if I was from Brazil. Nopety nope.
