I didnt get transferred ILOVE POMONA!!!!!!!


hey mom, so if you dont send the box today I wont get it before the transfer  but you get my hopes up with a package and then never send it. thats really mean mom :)  The pics are really cute. Send more send more! sorry this computer I am on isn't sending any pics so none again.
So to answer your questions. Transfers are next week. so we find out on saturday. But I know for sure that Hna Ward and I will not be together. and I feel like i am leaving. So I'm bracing myself because I truly love it here. Alecc is right you get to know the members so well and you grow attached and I havent been in another area so hope all will go well. well duh I know all will go well but ya a tad nervous. But ya. yes every missionary write president every week he feels bad for not responding to your facebook posts but they dont have time. there are pictures posted on facebook . the weather is fresco en la manana y calor en el tarde y poquitito frio en el noche. and it hasnt rained again. but even if it did we dont have time for that. hahaha But yes I am enjoying it and having a lot of fun. 

so yes hna ward and I are laughing this is probably the best times I have had with her. because we just laugh. everything. Every little difference we laugh about it. I have really learned a lot about myself and how to have patience and learn how to follow and not always have to be the one leading all the time. but you know me I do like to lead. and President recognized that. But I have learned a lot and will continue to learn. 
We had a really good lesson with jocelyn. by good I mean EXCELLENT! the spirit was so strong. She started to cry. Yo: "why are you crying" "because its true. I cried my self to sleep every night and I dont do that anymore. I was depressed all the time. and Im not anymore" "so since you know its true what do you need to do?" "keep reading, praying.... and be baptized!!!!" BEST THINGS AN INVESTIGATOR CAN SAY!!! I cant say it enough. I love being a missionary. So there are some complications with her baptism but it will happen. she is ready and its just around the corner. Not too much happened this week but we found some good new investigators. and Every day on the mission I get tireder and tireder. It is really horrible. never anytime to do anything. not even sleep. well not sleep enough. 
The bike is good. Im super out of shape. blah its bad but ya it is all good. if you find long skirts send them my way! strechy is the best! 
  I sometimes wish I could be there for cesars senior year and to see alecc and talk to alecc about everything. I miss my family my bed but I would never trade my mission for my bed. hahahahaa The mission is shaping me into who I want to be and what I know now is even more beneficial to me. This gospel is something I will never let go and I love sharing it and I hope one day The Quezada family will accept it. It truly is the way to true happiness. Sorry this letter was all over the place! I love you so much and have a great week.
Love, Hermana Quezada

IM staying in POMONA!!!!

I never said I was getting transferred. I said one of us was getting transferred. HA and it wasn't me. Pomona doesn't want to get rid of me. and I am okay with that. I love it here and Jocelyn will be baptized super soon and I am glad I get to be here through the whole experience. And I think it just might brake my little heart when I have to leave. So I am here in Pomona with my new comp hna Minchin. She is 26 and from Canada. and ya it was kinda hard to say bye to hna ward. We were with eachother for such a long time and we really bonded like major these last two weeks. I have learned a lot from her and I am excited to have fresh eyes here in Pomona and get work done.
I got the package way cute. Super hellokitty hahaha hna ward loved the cotton candy she was way inpressed with it.
Well everyone sounds good at home. And I am glad cesar is doing everything and being really social that's what makes it fun. 
  I am so happy you went to the temple. Keep going do slack on enduring to the end. It is just as important and anything else in the church like baptism. Because since you have made these convenants you will be more accountable if we don't keep them. and going to the temple often will help in so many aspects.
So this week was kind of slow. Our numbers were really low and we didn't teach a lot which is a bummer because I love to teach. But that just means this week will be better. I felt so bad for my sweet comp. She has been sick all week. And I feel like everyday got worse and worse. Pobresita. We found some families that have a lot of potential and one of our investigators brought a family to church!!!!! awesome right? we were stoked!
Exact honor.. hmmm Being exact is something that I have been trying to do my whole mission. We are often late to appointments:( and at times we fall short. but I honor my God.  I will do whatever it is to be exact. This is His work. His plan. we are His children. and to become as Jesus Christ we must follow with exactness until we make it to perfection. But the perfection process takes enduring and that is why we are here. to learn grow and endure! I am so excited to be a missionary. Still love it. and It is something that I cant describe to you! xoxoxox keep doing good. and have a good week. its raining here and I hope its raining there so you can play in it for me! Love you all so much!
All my love, Hermana Quezada

 Hi Every one sorry Justinas blog is way late... thank you  for all your prayers and thoughts for her and her mission....She is amazing as you well know. LOve you all.

Biggesst FOOD I have ever seen


Hi mom,
Im glad you like conference it was really good there and definitely gets better every time I think its because I realize how much I need it more and more. Guess im getting older. not too much wiser but whatever. There are a lot of things that I need to work on and a lot of things that are exciting. I'm glad that you realize you need to improve but that you are doing good too. that is the best. Because we all need to improve but it keeps us going to see that we do somethings right that are very pleasing to God and when God is pleased the blessings come!
Conference was even better because in between.. BAUTISMO DE NATY!!!!!! yaaaaa kay the baptism was awesome (I sang again) and she was so cute ready and awesome! So after she was baptized she asked if she could bare her testimony. "claro que si" and she said one of the most powerful testimonies ever! something that really touched me was that she said "Just as OUR prophet explain...." she said OUR PROPHET!!! oh my heavens I was in tears I love her so much and she is just something this ward needs. she really is going to be a great leader in the church. truly converted and has this burning desire to learn more too! INCREDIBLE. 
I didnt get any pics of homecoming and you just sent me some that I have on my camera over here. :( boo for stina. Mama wont send her pictures.
MA good old days. ya it would have been so fun with you in my class. I sat in the front row smack in the middle. I bet you sit in one of the middle rows on one of the sides. Those high school girls. No i never talked just soaked up the lectures and sometimes I would fall asleep. but not my fault you know how busy and tired I was my senior year. But stick it out. Have you made flash cards? I still have mine if you don't want to write them all again. keep going it will be worth it in the end.
Transfers are in three weeks. Kinda crazy. Time seriously flies.
So two things. 
I GOT TO GO TO THE TEMPLE TODAY. and the new video left me in tears. I really needed that. I didn't realize how much I could be affected by that video but wow. it was amazing I just want to go back tomorrow. too bad I cant:( and Sister Jenn Luther was there. Its always such a treat to see my girl from Springville.
Number 2
So hna Ward and I were getting something to eat in between sessions on saturday and we rode our bikes to the habit to get a burger. we were looking at this menu and a guy walks up to us and says "you eating" "yes" "come on" and waves to us to go up to the register. we kind of look at each other and awkwardly walk behind him. "I will pay for anything they want" Mouth dropped I could barely squeak out a thank you. I was so humbled and he was so humble. he payed for us, shook our hands and then walked back to his table to finish with his family. He didnt want any recognition or praise. He just wanted to serve and I will never forget that small act off kindness, I was really taken back. I am so blessed to be a missionary with all these wonderful people.
 I am merely just a girl trying my very hardest to be a tool un instremento en los manos de Senor. and at times. almost all the time I feel unqualified and no bigger or better then anyone else. So why am I so privlaged to be here serving at this time. Beats me. But I am grateful. Te quiero mucho, ustedes estaban en mis oraciones. con cuidado. y tenga dirvetido.
Con todo de mi corazon, Hermana Quezada
ps pulled out the rain coat today. It was poring. to bad I just cant go and play in it because thats really what I want to do. Loves

A Simple Prayer to the Page Family!!!!

Hi Mom,
So yes I am okay. Elder Page was in my zone. just in Azusa which is the next town over. I didn't know him very well but I will never forget that at zone meeting he went around and shook everyone's hand. he was only on his mission for a month. I don't know how many details you know but listen to how amazing this is. So the last I saw him was at our baptism. But on Wednesday he was able to go to the temple with his whole district and they spent a lot of time in the celestial room after the session. and then the next day three hours before the accident. He had an interview with President, where President told him that he was doing a good work. Right after the accident his sweet companion forced his way to give him a blessing. and I was really taught a big lesson on how much love Elder Ostler had for Elder Page. It truly was Christ like love. as they explained that he never left his side.. holding his hand.. and trying to comfort him as best he could. I was really taken back. Brought to tears. I am learning so many things on my mission. Elder Ostler had the chance to talk to the mother of Elder Page and she is truly an inspiration. If she ever reads this I hope you know that your son impacted many lives and will always be remembered. But his mom was on the phone trying to comfort Elder Ostler. How could that even be? she just lost her only son. What an amazing gift this is that the Holy Ghost is the comforter. We are truly blessed to have this gospel and I don't doubt that Elder Page is teaching with his dad who passed away a few years ago. I bet they are teaching the wonderful and amazing plan of Salvation. 
I had the Holy Ghost remind me that that Elder Page did attend our baptism. And we had everyone write there testimonies on a flash card so we had something to give Naty after. So as I was reminded I searched for that flash card that had a simple but powerful testimony on it and at the end his name. We made copies and one will be sent to his mom and we gave one to his companion. We had a memorial service for him last night and the Spirit was so strong. Many hearts were healed and I will never ever be able to deny the love that Heavenly Father has for his children. I feel it over and over again. But through hard things we really will unite and become stronger and I know the work will move forward. I cant express the emotion that was felt last night but I truly love this gospel. But still be safe everyone. Please.
God lives and the Work goes ON!!

So my interview with President was very inspired and I have a lot to do and a lot to work on. But I can feel the work moving forward as we search for the elect we will baptise. Naty got confirmed and she is so awesome! LOVE HER! her daughter is right around the corner we have the faith for this week. She can do it I know she can! Working hard, biking hard, praying hard, and yes I love my mission. I cant say it enough! 
Missionaries have to be safe but please be safe as well. I know life is busy and you rush sometimes but please be safe. I love you way too much! I love you and remember that our Heavenly Father does too! have an amazing week!

I FREAKED OUT.....Sister Megan Walker was on TV...

Sure love this Girl...
Missionaries in training..:)
Thats so funny that you started out with that. because I FREAKED OUT! I thought she was already out of the MTC. and me and my comp were searching for people we know saying "My mom is probably crying." "I know my mom is crying" I even went back to see her again. haha it was fun to see her. could you get me her email address? speaking of dress sell it. i don't care. So do you remember this you want pictures send me some too? I haven't even seen how studly cez looks at homecoming. and I know you took pictures. So we haven't been riding too much because hna ward just fixes the bikes rides them for a little and then gives them back to their owners and then we are back to walking. BUT BUSES are way better anyways. If they came more frequently it would be perfect but riding buses are way more affective then knocking doors. one guy said "you girls are good. real good. your church is going to be happy with you" the funny thing is we weren't even talking about our church.. YET! hahaha I love being a missionary. Some people wont talking to you some people think they know everything about the church but the majority don't and want to know more. the hard part is if they are willing to change for the truth.
 That is something that I have been thinking about is how we can get from believing to being converted. in alma 23:6"...were converted unto the Lord never did fall away." so what do we have to do to never fall away? become converted unto the Lord. No how do we apply that in our lives? and how do I help my investigators with this hard thing of conversion? Because it is easy to believe. because it is TRUE. but how we become converted is a different story. Search it in the scriptures and report back to me what you find. (and if anyone else is reading this I would like to invite you to do the same and if you want write me a letter)
So Jocelyn will be waiting but she will be soon. and Naty is on! She is so ready and I love her so much. Her love and desire to learn all she can in the church will take her far. a testimony was given yesterday "Im excited for Naty and her family I know she will be a great leader in the church." SO TRUE! she is awesome. quit coffee and is striving to endure to the end even before her baptism. She is nervous about her interview but she will jsut blow through it. she is so ready. I am praying hard that Satan leaves her alone this week. but I know he wont. But next week will be of pictures of her baptism! we are also teaching a mom and her two kids. They will be getting baptized real soon here too. she knows the church is true and she wants to follow it. we just have to clear some stuff up first!. 
Its so weird to hear about all the marriages and missions. When I get home nobody will be around. but thats okay because they are doing good things. Growing up is kinda fun. life just keeps getting better and better. I hope you enjoy conference this week. take time to watch all the sessions and go in with questions. The revelation you will recieve is directly from God so take advantage of it! I love you and have a great week! SEND PICS!!!
Love Hermana Quezada
This is my COOOOOL companion Ward...
