Hello Family & Friends,

This week was good! Happy Father’s Day Dad! You’re the best! I thought of you all day yesterday and how grateful I am for you and your example to me! The highlight of this week was Brother Bentley’s baptism. It was beautiful. His wife came and supported him. He was so excited. To back up, on Tuesday night, we finished the commandments: Law of Chastity and read through the interview questions. The Law of Chastity lesson was hilarious. Bro. Bentley started telling us stories about when gay guys hit on him, and in one he turned around and just knocked the guy out! We were like…what the? This was back in his younger days! He started telling another and we were just like… okay, okay… you’re good. He has crazy stories! He also got the quad he ordered (Bible, Book of Mormon and D&C together). He even got a case with it! It was awesome! He was so excited about them! The baptismal service was great and he was baptized! He expressed his thanks (almost in tears) for us coming to him and bringing him this message. I was so touched. He also told us how he felt that his ancestors were nudging him this way and he believed that strongly! We are so excited for him to do their temple work! I know he has some that have been waiting a long time for HIM! He will also receive the priesthood in a couple weeks!

We were also able to teach a new investigator named Anne this week! She is really nice and was raised Catholic. She said she’d read the Book of Mormon, so we’ll see. 🙂 We were also able to clean more of our new house this week! It’s almost ready, so we’re excited for that. I’ll take pics when we get everything in! The new address is 17 NW 28th St., Lawton, OK 73501. You can send things there now, since we’re there often. It’s a cute little house! Poor Sister Porter got so sick this week! She has Celiac Disease (like Michael!) and a lactose allergy, so if she eats anything with a hint of gluten or lactose, she gets pretty sick. But, we think this was an actual sickness. 😛 She’s feeling better though now! 

On Post, I set a baptismal date with a soldier for July 6th! He is really sincere and wants to know if it’s all true! After that lesson, another solider, Brother Smith, was to be baptized. Since they can’t ride with us because of mission rules, they ran behind us and followed us to the font! I have included a pic of that…haha! He and his buddies ran all the way to the font in the chapel on Post. It wasn’t too far, but it was HOT and humid! #dedication Sadly, when we got there, the Chaplain had forgotten to fill up the font, so he will be baptized next week! We were bummed, but next week will be great too!

I am so grateful for the Gospel! It’s true! It’s true!

Hey y’all! 

Drum roll please…. I’m STAYING in Lawton for a 4th transfer and with Sister Porter! Woot! I am excited to stay especially since we have a lot of exciting things happening! Brother Bentley is getting baptized this Saturday at 3:00! We asked him if he is excited yesterday, and he said, “Darn hootin I am!” Okie talk haha. One of the Priests in the ward is baptizing him. The priest, Kade Kappel, just got his mission call yesterday to the Washington Everett Mission! I was like YAY! Best place ever 🙂 (besides Oklahoma!!). We’re excited for him. He leaves in July! So soon! But Brother Bentley’s baptism is going to be great! I’ll e-mail some pictures next week and let y’all know how it goes. 🙂 Tuesday, we went to the City for Mission Leader Conference, and we got a new car for our area. It’s a 2014 Chevy Cruze. It’s sweeeet! We taught the Book of Mormon class this week, and we showed “The Prophet of the Restoration” movie. The Spirit was so strong and quite a crowd showed up to watch it, including the Bentley’s! What is funny is that as I am writing this, next to me is a guy trying to bash with Sister Porter about Joseph Smith with stuff on Wikipedia hahaha. Oh dear! It proves that he really was a prophet! And speaking of that, after watching the movie, my testimony was reconfirmed that he was and did restore Christ’s church to the earth! We went out to dinner with David and Bria at the Hong Kong buffet Friday evening. They are so funny! We also found a new potential named Anne from Trinidad. And, we got 2 referrals this weekend! #blessed. 

I am just so grateful for the gospel in my life. I’m so glad I’m not confused like the guy next to me who keeps arguing with us and won’t listen to what we say. I’m grateful for the Holy Ghost that has confirmed to me what is true! It’s freeing to know that Jesus Christ speaks to a prophet today, and that I know where and what the right path is. I’m grateful for the Savior who provided the way, that when I do stumble or get off the path, I can get back on! He is so merciful. It just makes sense that we have a prophet today. I mean, how would we prepare for Christ’s second coming blindly? I’m so grateful for prophets. I am grateful for Joseph Smith who went through so much persecution. I love these verses from D&C 122:5-8:

If thou art called to pass through tribulation; if thou art in perils among false brethren; if thou art in perils among robbers; if thou art in perils by land or by sea; If thou art accused with all manner of false accusations; if thine enemies fall upon thee; if they tear thee from the society of thy father and mother and brethren and sisters; and if with a drawn sword thine enemies tear thee from the bosom of thy wife, and of thine offspring, and thine elder son, although but six years of age, shall cling to thy garments, and shall say, My father, my father, why can’t you stay with us? O, my father, what are the men going to do with you? and if then he shall be thrust from thee by the sword, and thou be dragged to prison, and thine enemies prowl around thee like wolves for the blood of the lamb; And if thou shouldst be cast into the pit, or into the hands of murderers, and the sentence of death passed upon thee; if thou be cast into the deep; if the billowing surge conspire against thee; if fierce winds become thine enemy; if the heavens gather blackness, and all the elements combine to hedge up the way; and above all, if the very jaws of hell shall gape open the mouth wide after thee, know thou, my son, that all these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good. The Son of Man hath descended below them all. Art thou greater than he?”

I know that Jesus Christ did descend below all things, and because of that, He can help and lift us. These verses apply to us in hard times. “All these things shall give thee experience and shall be for thy good.” I have seen that SO much throughout my mission. Well, we have to go, but I’ll have some fun updates and pictures next week!! Have a great week and uplift someone today! 🙂

I love y’all!

JUNE 2, 2014

Family & Friends,

Hello everyone! I hope this week has been great for y’all! It has been a good week here in Lawton! Yesterday was Stake Conference and Elder Romeo Villarreal of the seventy was here presiding. He was great and all the meetings were inspiring. He even came on Post with President Peterson (the Stake President) and spoke. The soldiers loved it, even though most of them didn’t know what a General Authority was! haha We had to miss the Sunday session of Stake Conference because of the church on Post, but it was worth it. After Elder Villarreal and President Peterson left, I taught a new investigator named Brother Knust. He has no religious background (first time on my mission teaching someone without a religious background… #biblebelt)! It was such a learning experience for me, and I think for him as well! He accepted the challenge to pray about baptism on the 28th of June though! 

I got to go on an exchange to Ardmore on Tuesday with Sister Young! It was, I think, the most fun exchange I’ve had my whole mission. We laughed so much and talked about how great missions are. She is going home in July, so for the exchange report (at the end of the exchange when missionaries report on how the exchange went, how they’re doing and set goals), I asked her the top 5 things she has learned on her mission. Hers were great. I love how emotional people get at the end of their missions when they reminisce and think about how much they’ve grown on their missions. Missions are amazing. Brother Bentley is also doing well! Our ward council moved his baptismal date to the 14th of June which is frustrating, but it’ll be okay! It’s STILL happening! Also, one of the Elder’s investigators, Brother Vickers, is also getting baptized that day! WOOT! Brother Bentley gave up coffee this week and said, like it wasn’t a big deal, “Oh, I’ll just drink hot chocolate.” haha I love him! We also got to go on exchanges with the Texas North sisters. Hermana Best came up to Lawton with me and we had a busy night visiting David and Bria, the Ponce’s, Ethan, and tracting! It was so fun! 

I am in shock about how fast time is flying! I can’t believe it is June already! I feel very blessed and wet (humid) here in Lawton! We are seeing so many miracles. I got my new scriptures this week! First time since I was baptized having new scriptures! They are so beautiful! I almost cried when I got them! I have been going through marking all the ones I use often and my favorites and all that. I realized how grateful I am for the scriptures and how they’ve literally changed my life! I am definitely serving in the Bible Belt, which has been great in that it has helped me learn more of the Bible and how it is a testimony that this is the Lord’s church. 

I love y’all!

ImageReady to “White Board Lawton” last week!

Family! Friends! 

How is everyone this fine day? The library was closed yesterday so we get to e-mail today! I am so grateful! We both missed it so much. First, I just want to say how grateful I am for my family today! Dad, you are so amazing. You have taught me responsibility, respect, hard work and dedication through your example! You are always supportive of my decisions and I really value your opinion and advice. Mom, you are also amazing! I love your advice and all the times you just listen to me when I need to talk. You have taught me love, to trust in the Lord, and patience. You are also supportive of my decisions and I can count on you always! You are a great friend! Madeleine, you are so great! You are so forgiving and accepting of others. You are so talented! I know we’re going to have some good sister dates after the mission! I’ll need some good hair tips, too…this humidity is not my friend haha. Jordan, I hear only the best from my family and know you’re very hardworking and fun! It’ll be great to have you in the fam! Michael, your picture is on the back of my planner right now, and I talk about you in so many of my lessons! I am so happy you are in our family and that you chose to grace our family with your special spirit! I smile every time I think of you! Max, you are such a great guy! You are such a great example to me and I always think “Max will be so good at the mission” every day. You are so talented at everything you do AND have a strong testimony. Great combo! I love you all! Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins–I love y’all too! I have the greatest family in the world! 

This week was good! All of our investigators were out of town, sick or had deaths in the family. We did a lot of service for them. The Ponce’s grandma died, so we took them treats and a card. We are going to clean their bathroom tomorrow (haha!). We did get to meet with Brother Bentley. We were talking about the ten commandments and he started jumping into fasting and tithing haha. He is excited to be baptized. He has so many questions so that’s good too, but he is very open to everything. He’s still going strong with his seminary study guide. 🙂 We did an exchange with Sister Stokes and Sister Taylor in the other Lawton ward. I went with Sister Stokes to their area. We had an appointment where this kid put like 5 kittens on me. Needless to say, my eyes blew up and we definitely had to go to Walgreens for Benedryl. The pollen in the air didn’t help either. BUT, the lesson went well and the woman really wanted a Book of Mormon. We also got to teach two of their investigators that are getting baptized in a week–Kayla and Cindy! They are awesome. It was a good exchange! On Post this Sunday, I taught a lesson on the Restoration. Teaching was just me and one other solider who is the co-teacher. His name is Brother Ness. But I pretty much just direct and teach the class. About 20 soldiers were in the class, and about half of them were investigators. It was really fun though and they asked really good questions. There are so many people with so many backgrounds though, so that is pretty crazy. We do have a little time to talk to them individually though after the class. Sunday was very overwhelming because after our classes on Post, the four of us missionaries had to rush back to make at least part of our regular sacrament meeting. I think I mentioned it before, but we do a little exchange each Sunday, so it’s Sister Stokes and I, and Elder Manwaring and Chavez…an Elder and a Sister from both the wards. Our other companions go on splits so there is always at least one missionary there in our assigned wards. President approved it, so don’t worry, 😉 but it seems kind of weird at first. I probably didn’t explain it very well, so sorry! Anyways, so Elder Chavez and I ran right onto the stand to join our comps to give talks Sunday after Post. There were two confirmations which was awesome, but we got there right in time to give the talks. Our comps gave pretty long talks, so we just got to share our testimonies. I loved it though! I realized that I am not nervous anymore to speak in front of people. I mean, everyone is a little nervous when they’ve prepared something, but I used to be a lot more nervous! YAY! Missions are amazing! We have a busy week ahead: two exchanges, Stake Conference, and some good lessons! It’ll be a great week! 

I love this Gospel so much! I love the Book of Mormon. I am finishing the Book of Mormon tomorrow (two chapters to go!), and I am just in awe again at how much I get out of it! I love it so much that I want to share it with everyone! It provides answers to life’s greatest questions. Even though I just finished it, I’m going to start over again and read it again and again! I have a testimony that The Book of Mormon is the word of God! I am grateful for the Atonement and how powerful it is. I know it works. Ether 12:27 and 37 really hit me this week too. I love my Savior so much!

“Honk if You Love Jesus”

MAY 19, 2014

Hey Friends and Family!

I hope all is well and that everyone is enjoying their week! It’s getting to look a lot like summer! Here in Lawton, we had a pretty awesome week.

On Monday and Tuesday we were in Wichita Falls, Texas for an exchange. I was with Sister Rigby. Wednesday we were back in Lawton and we visited with Brother Bentley and David & Bria. Okay update on them: We challenged Brother Bentley to pray about baptism on June 7th….and on Sunday, he said YES!! We are so excited. David and Bria were at church and are doing well. Bria is so-so about everything. We read the first chapter of 1 Nephi with them and I drew it out on a piece of paper. They laughed at Laman and Lemuel who looked like these evil gothic kids and they said my angel looked like a flying squirrel #cantbeperfect hahaha. We had a blast and it helped them stay focused. They are funny! OH…I also just found out that Kel is getting baptized on the 31st!!!!! I am soooo excited ! We’ve been able to witness a lot of miracles this week! On Saturday, we tried something new as a District, we called it White Board Lawton. We made signs that said “Honk if you love Jesus,” “mormon.org” and “#BecauseofHim,” then stood on the corner of the main road. People were honking like crazy! It was a blast, and we were able to talk to some people and give out pass along cards. Tonight we are going to our Zone Training Meeting where Sister Porter and I are givinig training on the Missionary Schedule. It’ll be good, we hope! WOOT!  Sorry this e-mail is so short. I’m on a computer that doesn’t work very well!

Hope y’all have a great week!

Post Miracles!

ImageSister Porter & I at the temple!

Hey Y’all!

Well everything in Lawton is going well! A lot of good news for this week! Transfers of course were this week; my new companion is Sister (Whitney) Porter! We are the same age (she is only 2 months younger than I), she is the youngest in her family, and is from Syracuse, Utah. She went to BYU for 3 semesters before her mission and studied Elementary Education. She is soooo nice and friendly and is really uplifting. It’s takes a lot to get her down! We both have the same favorite places to eat in Oklahoma (Mexican and Chick-fil-A). We have a lot in common, so it’s been so fun! 

Now on to the week…it was crazy of course because of transfers. Some appointments fell through, Gerda dropped us (saaad!), and our ward council went a little crazy. BUT, we had tons of miracles too including starting to teach the Ponce Family. Their family includes a mom, a dad, 4 girls and a grandma! Finding families to teach is super rare on the mission, so it is SO GREAT! We also got to go to the temple on Saturday with our ward to help out with the youth baptisms. It was really, really great to be at the temple for that long! It was so uplifting! We drove up with our ward mission leader and his wife, the Adairs. 

Also, a new thing for the week is that I get to teach on the Ft. Sill Army Post. So this is how it goes… When the soldiers first come into the Army they have to go through their “basic training.” It’s an intense 9 weeks of getting yelled at by their Drill Sergeants and hard training. It’s kind of like a mission (no phone, facebook, they stay on post, etc), except not–haha. Attending church on Sunday is a peaceful break from it all! We meet in a classroom where we have a sacrament service, and then the missionaries teach the 4 PMG lessons in another room. So, you’re teaching a group of soldiers by yourself. It’s really cool! I taught a woman, Sister Valencia from Haiti about the Plan of Salvation. She’s praying about a baptismal date. I have a lot more respect for the soldiers and how much they go through. I’m so grateful to give them the opportunity to partake of the sacrament and for some, to learn about the Gospel. I love it! Get this, I get to give a talk next week to a group of soldiers about the Stripling Warriors. #intimidation ! It will go well… I hope 🙂 You can really feel the Spirit there! This week was fast and testimony week. Brother Richardson bore his testimony–and he’s not even a member! He asked how he can get baptized! He is awesome!

I LOVE THE GOSPEL.The Atonement is real and it works! It changes us and helps us become the best we can be! I know our Savior lives and loves us! Let the Atonement work in your life! Use it. Remember it’s through faith, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end. That is where true happiness is found! 

I am so excited to Skype this week! Dad, Mom, Madeleine, Jordan, Michael and Max… be ready at 6:30 pm! 🙂 

Love y’all!

Lawton Round 3!

APRIL 28, 2014

Hey y’all!

I seriously can’t believe that it is almost May! Time is flying!! Someone asked me how long I have left on my mission and my own answer took me by surprise! I am loving the mission. Transfers are this week so there is news! I feel like as every transfer goes by, the calls may seem to get less and less like “big news,” but drum roll please…. Sister Smith is leaving me! She is going to the Spanish North Branch! She is freaking out, but I am so excited for her to be able to use her Spanish! I am getting Sister Porter! I really don’t know much about her, so I’ll fill you in next week! I just know she is from Utah, super super sweet, and goes home in August! Oh, and she is also a Hermana (Spanish sister). We’re going to tear it up for sure! 😉 Starting backwards with the week, last night was transfer calls and the Elders lost their phone so they used ours to call the Zone Leaders to get all the “transfer doctrine” as we call it. It was funny, and we were all cheering and excited at all the news! Other news of the week: we were able to see a lot of less actives, teach two new investigators and we visited some formers- a family- that I am excited to teach again! We were able to meet with Gerda again and show her the conference talk, “Come Join With Us” by President Uchtdorf. She loved it. Bria didn’t come to church 😦 but the lesson went well! I am really excited about this next transfer because I know we are going to see some really amazing miracles!

I have been deep into my Book of Mormon reading in the war chapters in Alma and Helaman. They are so good! One in particular that always gets me is when Moroni is upset because he doesn’t feel the support from the chief judge Pahoran and he writes a letter rebuking him for his indifference and wickedness. Pahoran writes back lovingly and chooses not to get offended, but corrects him bytelling him that rebels drove him out of Zarahemla and that he still supports liberty and wants to help Moroni, but he himself is trapped. This is the fast version of the story. Even though Moroni jumped to that conclusion, Pahoran’s love is truly inspiring. How often do we get offended when things like that happen? It really made me think about true charity and love. I love the Book of Mormon and want everyone to read it!! It has changed my life! I love you all and hope that everything is going great! Madeleine, again, I am SO EXCITED for you and Jordan! YAAAY!

Love, Sister Roberts

P.S., We get to Skype for MOTHER’S DAY! 🙂

Family and Friends,

I am SO EXCITED TODAY! So many amazing things happened this week. First off, my one and only baby sister got engaged on Saturday! YAY! I am so happy for you-Madeleine and Jordan! Jordan, welcome to the family, bro!

Another cool thing I got to do this week was go watch my first marriage/sealing in the temple! Thomas Wilson and Karla Pacheco were two friends/ward members whom I met while serving in the Norman singles ward. I love them so much and it was so beautiful! They looked so happy! Marriage marriage marriage! I love it! We called President and he said we could go! It was at 8:30 at night though so we got back late… ahhhh! But we still woke up at 6:30 bright and early the next morning. We were just dead all day haha. We did 2 exchanges this week so that was eventful. I was only in Lawton 4 days this week! I went to a little town called Elgin on Tuesday with Sister Hirschi. It was so fun, we explored one of the outlying towns called Fletcher and tracted in the gorgeous weather. We even found two potentials! Sister Hirschi is training right now and she is a really good, easy going, kinda timid sister! We had a blast! Wednesday we re-exchanged and were heading out to take our car to get an oil change, but Sister Smith accidentally locked the keys in the car. It was so crazy. The Elders came and tried to help, but we finally had to call a locksmith. On Thursday, we went to Ardmore for an exchange with Sister Young and Sister Robison. It was a really short exchange, but it was fun! We woke up really early and left to get back to Lawton. The drive from Ardmore to Lawton is through the countryside, in the middle of nowhere. I attached some pictures of the gorgeous sunrise! Friday we got to go to the temple in the evening and like I said, it was gorgeous! It was so good to see some of my Norman buds! One of my other former companions, Sister Zaleski, was there so that was fun! Saturday, our stake had a family history fair, and 100 non-members were signed up to come, so we went and attended some classes, and talked to people. Then we had a correlation meeting for the Branch on the Army Post. Transfer calls are at the end of this week and we really think Sister Smith is leaving because she’s been here for 7 months. If that’s the case, I will be taking her spot on post teaching the soldiers on Sunday. I’ll explain more about this next week if I am. It’s such a cool experience, and I would be so honored! On Easter Sunday we had 23 less active members attend and all of it was great! Elder Chavez, one of the Elders, got a kidney stone Saturday night, so they were at the ER until 3 am. He was a champ though because they had to wait in the ER for 6 hours and while they were there a member came in who had been pitching in his high school baseball game and the ball came back and hit his throat. So he and his mom were there and when they saw the Elders’ name tags, they asked them to give him a blessing, so they did! I told Elder Chavez that he would of course be healed for giving so much service while in so much pain! haha The kidney stone finally passed Sunday night and he’s with us today…alive! We all got to go to a member’s home for Easter dinner and they were so nice, they even made us Easter baskets! SO CUTE! Their little girls were so adorable! I am so grateful for the Gospel and for my mission! I love my Savior and all that He has done for me! I hope yall have a great week!

I love YOU!

Sister Roberts

He Lives!

APRIL 14, 2014

Hello all!

This week was good. The weather here is so weird! It was 89 degrees one day and today it’s 39! It’s been so humid, too, which I forgot about. We also saw a scorpion… in our bathroom! AH!

Update on the week: Our Zone meeting went well. The training we gave went well. People participated and laughed, so that’s a good sign! We talked about companionship inventories. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s a time each week when, with your companion, you set personal and companionship goals, talk about any problems in your companionship and give each other Christlike correction. So, for the most part it has a bad rep, and is joked about a lot. Some comps don’t even do it! So we rebuked them if they weren’t doing it and talked about how Christ corrected and loved using the story of the young rich man that asked Jesus how he could obtain eternal life. We re-wrote the story using comp inventory words and at the end when the young man goes away sorrowfully we replaced it with “the young companion got offended for he had great pride.” haha it was fun and they enjoyed it. We also talked a bit about mission culture and how we should act as missionaries. It went well!

On Tuesday we were able to go on exchanges with the Wichita Falls North sisters. Sister Best came to Lawton with me. Sister Best is brand new on the mission. She is a lot of fun! She is really passionate about the work so we had a good time, even though all our appointments and plans fell through! 😦 Wednesday, we re-exchanged, worked with some less actives and met with David and Bria that night. I love them so much! They came to church on Sunday and David bore his testimony!! (He is a less active member, and Bria is an investigator.) In his testimony he said how much he needs to come back and how the scriptures help us. Bria was even teary at the end. We taught the Gospel Principles class on charity, so we were with them the whole time. They really enjoyed church! On Thursday we taught the Book of Mormon study class. We watched Elder Andersen’s talk, taught about the Parable of the Sower and based it on Helaman 5:12. Overall it was a good week!

In light of Easter week I love this link (below) on lds.org about Jesus Christ. I love that it focuses on the fact that He lives! He died for us, but now he lives! I am so grateful for what He did for me personally and for you. We need to grow close to Him, we need to study His life and use the Atonement that He made possible. What a great gift we have. He is a perfect friend, brother, teacher and Savior! In all ways, we can look up to Him and as we pattern our lives after Him, we can live with Him and our Father in Heaven! What a great gift! This is the good news that we spread to the world! That His church has been restored! I love this Gospel with all my heart. I’m so glad I can be here sharing it! Have a great Easter week everyone!

Conference POWER!

APRIL 7, 2014

Hello All! 

Conference was amazing! I hope everyone got to watch it! I loved it! Also, CONGRATS to my cousin Tyler for getting his mission call to the TOKYO SOUTH JAPAN MISSION! YAY! Missions are the best! I am stoked for you bud! 

Well, this week was great…busy but good. We were able to meet with Jeff on post and have a good review lesson with him on the restoration. He is still hesitant, but has intent now to get an answer. Pray for him. He’s going through a lot right now. Gerda is still on her quest to convince her husband that Joseph Smith is a good guy haha. He read tons of anti stuff. She is soooo sincere and loves the Gospel! She just wants to be baptized with him. She watched conference and loved it. She is even calling it “her church.” Bria is progressing and we brought another young couple over to fellowship. They all clicked and the lesson went great. She is still hesitant about baptism, but set a date for May 3rd. We had an exchange in Duncan this week. Duncan is ghetto, too! I love it! I jumped for joy when Elder Rasband spoke about Oklahoma! I know the SORRELLS! They are great and helped us so much as missionaries! I feel blessed that I got to serve in Moore and see the blessings and faith of the members there. I even got to meet Elder Rasband and he called on me to say the prayer! AH! haha It was an amazing experience! We have a Zone training meeting tonight and Sister Smith and I are giving a training at it! I’m excited! I love this Gospel and everything about it! It’s true! Watch conference again and again! I love you all!

Love, 

Sister Roberts
