So I got my new companion!! she Is AWESOME!!! Her name is Sister Moffett!!! she is from clearfield Utah!!!! I was super scared at the transfer meeting and I couldnt even go and meet the new trainees so i just sat down and waited until it started and they told me who i was getting!! MAn was i nervous! and also two of my old companion (sister johnson and sister Hansen) finished there missions and went home during that transfer meeting so it was so heart wrenching to tell them goodbye! Man I love those girls! But the good thing is I willl be living close to them when I go back to school!:) But anyways My new companion is so chill! I love it!! It is exactly what i needed because sometimes I just become the worst stress ball ahha:) But anyways things are going to good with me and her!:)
Also SOFIA GOT BAPTIZED AND CONFIRMED!!!! It was an amazing experience!!! Her mom went all out for the baptism!! (I am including some pictures) and it was so cool! So many of her family and friends came!! It was a big event!! and Sofia was soooo excited:) She had the hugest smile on her face the whole time!! and when she came out of the water she had this amazing smile on her face!!! I hope I never forget that moment! so i tried to take a mental picture of it!:) but anyways Her Dad was able to baptize her so it was such a good experience for the whole family!  We all love Sofia so much!!! Anyways not much else to add sorry but I am positive me and sister moffett will have a story to tell next week:)
Love Hermana Miles

So!! We finally met the new mission president and We LOVE Him!!! He is sooo awesome and he is exactly what this mission needed!:) We are so excited to see how much the mission is going to progress with him!!! Also he said that our mission will be getting Ipads by the end of the year!!! Crazy!! We are all really excited for that! We feel like it will really help us our alot to have the ipads to show investigators videos and to have a map online of the members! We are excited!!!! 

So this week we have been having a Lot of rain and man! is it humid or what!!!! Sometimes I feel like i cant even take in a big breath! It just feels like im drowning a little bit inside every time we step outside but thats okay! hahha no big deal. Anyways So This week we will be baptizing Sofia!! the ten year old of a family who are members! We are so excited!!! We love her so much! She is just so excited to learn about church and she is so excited for her baptism this Sat.! The only problem is that my companion wont be there because we just got transfer calls and we just found out that she is leaving and Im staying!! oh and also IM TRAINING!!!! AHHH!!!! I cant believe it!!I I am so scared and excited and nervous all at the same time!!! We will be meeting them tomorrow so I will tell you all about my trainee next monday!

So our house has been having a bit of a cockroach problem (its bad...its really bad) and we have been spraying the house a lot trying to get rid of them and we thought we had finally won the battle but today one of the girls that we live with was walking into the house and starts screaming hysterically and we were like, "come on sister, we have all seen cockroaches a lot already you shouldnt be making that big of a deal about it..." and then all of us went to go see the cockroach and we all ran out of the house screaming!!! It was the biggest cockroach i have ever seen in my life!! None of us could face it! Finally one of the sisters got a can of spray and just started spraying in the general direction of the cockroach getting insecticide EVERYWHERE!! IT was a mess but it finally died!! (after a couple of seizures from the poison...poor thing)

Anyways  back to  missionary work :) This week we were really praying about trying to find someone that would be able to come to sacrament and we werent finding anyone. But me and sister lightheart were not to be discouraged! We continued on in faith and during sacrament this random family walks in!!!! We had to idea who they were! Turns out that they had been someone we had a said a prayer with but we did not remember them one bit!! We tried to play it off all cool just greeting them with "Hermana How are you??" hahaha but it was awsome they said that they loved church and we are going to try to meet with them some time this week! Also later on we finally remembered who they were!!! They were this family that we had prayed with TWO WEEKS AGO!! and they had said they wouldnt be able to come to church this sunday but next sunday for sure. and we were like, "yeah sure, everyone says that" BUT they actually came!!!:))) Man!! God is Good!
Well I love you guys!!!!
Love Hermana Miles
p.s. Pray for me that i dont get eaten by cockroaches....

First off Guys guess what! WE HAVE A NEW MISSION PRESIDENT!!! haha:) We get to meet him on wednesday and we are so excited. So lately my companion and I I have really been trying to build up the ward and just trying to strengthen them and usually we get like 50 people to sacrament but the last few weeks we have been getting about 74is people!! We have been so excited. We have been working with less actives (people who dont come to church as often) and trying to help them get back to church and it has been amazing to see the miracles that are happening. I played to organ for the first time for the ward and I dont think they had ever had anyone play the organ for them because they dont have anyone that plays the piano so if they dont have a missionary that knows how to play the piano they have to play acapella... so yeah, but it was amazing!! They were singing so loud and the spirit just filled the room. and then the last hour we were all together because it was the last sunday of the month and it was amazing! this ward is really just building itself up its amazing and the spirit is here to help!:) We love this ward so much now! So lately we havent had enough miles on the car ( we only get a certain number of miles we can drive with the car each month) and we decided to start riding our bikes a little bit. So we started on this bike ride that we thought would only take fifteen didnt take fifteen took us 50! mintues to get where we needed to be -_-! It was horrible and I guess my companion didnt know that we shouldnt ride through huge puddles of rain water and she got this huge!!! Line of mud water down her back! I felt so bad but I couldnt stop laughing!! haha:) anyways it was disastrous!! haha:) but i guess thats the only way we learn! Anyways I am sending you some pictures in this one so its not goign to be that long:) love you!

P.S. Ill let you know how the new mission president is! the first question me and my companion are going to ask him is "can we mail our ukeles to us on the mission?? We could use it as a prosetlying tool! We could knock on peoples doors and ask them would you like us to sing you a song?"  Couldnt you imagine it!??? *knock Knock* Hello?      "Hi:) Would you like us to sing you a song?"     "Sure!"    "Give said the little stream! Give oh give! give oh give!" haha:) anways bye!
