Week 2

This week has been super spiritual.
I would call it a week of revelation and reasoning.
Why I am serving a mission and my purpose here on Earth.
Well as General Conference is on it's way this weekend,
we have already had the General Woman's Broadcast which was really awesome and inspiring.
I loved Neill F. Marriot when she said "To give light to others. You must first glow yourself."
And Uchtdorf's analogy of our Heavenly Father raining blessings on us, and when we sin or doubt in him, we put an umbrella up and don't receive the rain.

So I suggest everyone watch general conference, where better to get deep answers than from our living Prophet and Apostles today, direct messages from God.
So go in with a question, and don't forget a journal to write your thoughts in.

Oh so there are lots of lightning storms here and I am not use to them, they kind of scare me a bit.
And I got to try fry bread so so so good, I wish I could have everyday.

Yesterday I got to go through the Albuquerque Temple, which is so beautiful especially inside.
Definitely my favorite right up next to the Oakland temple. 

This weekend is the Balloon Fiesta and I am right next to it, so there will be loads of photos of hot air balloons next week.

Much much Love,
Sister Libbey

Although the desert may be dry brown and depressing, the skies make up for it. Just Look Up.

The MTC and Week 1 in Albuquerque

AHHHH! Where do I start?!
Well my MTC experience was amazing. Definitely a lot of fun with the spirit. It's like EFY but with real work to do. I had the best Zone ever, we became family and I was sad to leave them.
Something awesome is, the spirit is so strong that literally everything you learn just gets absorbed like a sponge. I gained so much knowledge and revelation its crazy.
Sad note I got my first flu shot :(
Okay so yea week 1 in the field has already come and gone. I traveled from Provo to Albuquerque with 12 elders, leaving my favorite sisters to go to New Jersey. So we arrive around noon and we just did so much, a temple photo, some paperwork and even some contacting. It was a long day and then Tuesday I met my trainer!
Sister Beech!! Seriously a divine match, the best "mom" I could ask for.
So I believe because of the crazy change in environment and the flu shot I got a nice virus, a sore throat, so Sis. Beech has been putting up with me coughing up flem, lovely right?
But I was determined to really learn and be trained and get working so I fought through the loss of voice and coughing. And now I am miraculously better, prayers are answered.

So I am here in West Albuquerque, in the Volcano Cliffs Ward and I most definitely believe I am meant to be here. I have met so many people I feel like I have known for ages. And miracles have been happening! Little ones but it is definitely the Lords work.
I honesty love this gospel and this work.
I feel I am so blessed. Especially for where I am today.

I wish everyone well and happy birthday to many of my friends, you know who you are.

Much Much Love,
Sister Libbey
