We have been able to visit a few of the people that I knew before and it was fun at church yesterday to be welcomed back. We are teaching so many new people and we have baptisms set for this coming weekend. People are truly prepared to hear the gospel no matter where you are.
The Family Tree Center is such an awesome place to be and serve.
Thank you for all the wonderful birthday wishes, cards, emails and gifts they made my day :)
I had such a wonderful day...Cheesecake Factory, some shopping, teaching a new investigator...
You are all so wonderful and I have so much to be grateful for, you are truly the angels that the Lord has blessed me with here upon this earth.
Happy Birthday Martin Luther King...oh yeah and MOST IMPORTANTLY ME!!!(said in the same way as Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde after she gets the intership)
This week has been a pretty awesome one. We survived transfers, YAY!! I've finally been with the same companion for more than a transfer since my first companion...that didn't make sense, but it did in my head :) Anyway we are super happy to be together for another transfer and we are super stoked because we have more people to teach, talk about an awesome birthday present.
I also had the opportunity to speak in Church yesterday. The topic was true to the faith. I really enjoyed all that I was able to learn as I studied. When you think about it if we are true to our faith then we will be able to make it. I am so grateful for the Lord's promise in Doctrine & Covenants 82:10 I, the Lord, am bound when ye do what I say; but when ye do not what I say, ye have no promise.
I love you all!!!
Off to Cheesecake Factory for some birthday fun - Yeahhhhhhh

I really felt the love of our Heavenly Father enter into my heart when I read this article. That he did embrace us before we left his presence and all that he wanted was for us to remember our Divine heritage. That we are of Noble birth. We are the children of God, the Most High and the one who cares for us in ways that we cannot even imagine. He desires to see us again, but in order to do so we must remember who we are, the children of God. We are better than we think we are. In Romans 8, Paul talks to us about Christ and that if we are able to live the way that Heavenly Father has asked us to that we will be joint heirs with Christ.
How grateful I am for this gospel and the blessings that I have received from our Heavenly Father. I know that he lives. That he loves us and wants us to return to live with him. Jesus Christ is our Savior and through him we can reach our full potential. I know that this work is the work of the Lord. That we are able to gain eternal life through him. I am so grateful to be here. I love it. It is the best thing EVER!!!
Love you all, Sister Kirts

It has been amazing to see how the gospel of Jesus Christ really does change people and their lives if they let him in. In a talk President Monson quoted the hymn "O Little Town of Bethlehem" and how in the last verse it says: No ear can hear his coming, but in this world of sin, where meek souls will receive him still, the dear Christ enters in.
I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored and that President Monson is his Prophet here upon the earth. I love you all, you bring me strength and give me hope.
