 I love you guys I didn't really have time to email the family today sorry and I loved the video ofLliam keep that coming and I love the letters love you guys tons take care have a great week!!

  Monday: P-Day!! Are seriously my favorite days ever! Haha this P-Day we went to the mall and just shopped it was so fun! Then afterwards we went straight to work. Nothing really happened that day. 

Tuesday: We had District Meeting which is usually so great!!! A quote that I really liked was "If nothing changes then nothing changes" So go out and change yourself for the better! Then we had a great lesson with Shanna she's an investigator her Mom was Mormon but she married a Christian so she stopped going. 

Wednesday: We went to a less actives house and she said that she wants to be sealed with her husband in the temple so they are working on that this week!! So exciting! Then we helped someone organize her house. That was fun she had a lot of work out and planned meals to eat to go on a diet. Then we had dinner at a members house we had chili it was so good! Then we helped someone organize her house she has a lot of crafts and she just collects crafts so we are trying to get rid of crafts that she has. It's so funny how many people we are working with to clean and organize their houses. It's a great lesson for me to not gather so much junk that I will not need LOL!(: 

Thursday: Weekly planning I love weekly planning! I need to work on bearing my testimony with others and being confident in myself. Then we went to the doctors and where there forever!!! Then we went to Marge's shes an investigator, we vacuumed her house we are also organizing her house too! Man peoples houses are going to become so pretty after we are done! 

Friday: We went to a Chiropractic he was so great! He shares the gospel with everyone that comes to him, he said that he's gotten two baptisms by them coming to him. Which is so cool! He chose a job where he can share the gospel and also do something that he enjoys doing! Then we went to Sister Coats we are also helping her organize her house and doing service for her. She wants to also be sealed to her husband so we are going to be working on that! Then we went to Marge's house and had dinner! She told me that I am to pushy... Because I want her to read the Book Of Mormon. My bad... Then we went over to the Ady's they are less active and we had a lesson with them which was such a great lesson! We watched a mormon video! Then we while tracking we heard gun shots so we were about to walk back but then someone yelled to us so went and talked to her. She met with the mormons before and said that she always had a question about our church why no girls can be prophets so we talked about the priesthood it was a great lesson but she said that they aren't interested it was so sad... 

Saturday: We had a great lesson with Andrew the 14 year old boy I am so excited for his baptism! He's going so strong! Then it was the womens Broadcast which was so cool! Miracle today we saw a lady looking through her purse to find her keys that morning i got the prompting to bring my flashlight so I did we saw her and she had no light so I told her that I do and we had such a great lesson about the gospel and she said that she wants to meet with us again! I am so excited about that!!!

Sunday: It was the primary program the kids are so cute!!!!(:
Commitment: Will you find people to share the gospel to? Will you pray to have missionary opportunities? 
I know that if you do those things you will be blessed and love the gospel more!(:
Love, Sister Roberts

Week 7

Monday: It was a great P-day we slept haha nothing fun... Then we went and saw Sister Manton shes a less active and has a problem with smoking so we asked her if we can write scriptures on her cigar boxes and she laughed and said NO! haha Because then she would be smoking  Christs word. We started Laughing our heads off! Then we found a guy named Berry he gave us a talk about how we need to be happy in this life and if we aren't happy then do something about it! Don't complain about it that's the last thing anyone wants to hear. Then we met a lady from Africa her name is Penjova she said that she hasn't been happy for a long time then she saw us and saw the light in us and now she is happy! It was such a cool experience!(: 

Tuesday: We had zone training which was so good!! It was about planning and setting goals, the most boring subject there is but they tied in the Atonement with it so it was so uplifting! It was the best! We must all repent daily. The Atonement is a huge part of this gospel, Jesus didn't just suffer for us not to repent he suffered for us so we can repent daily. Change is necessary God wants us to change and to improve every single day. Will you repent daily? Will you bring all your problems to the Lord? I know that if you do your burdens will be lighter and that you will become happier in this life! Then we went and saw Tami shes an investigator that wants to be baptized but her husband is Catholic so shes afraid to ask him if she can be baptized. Then we went and had dinner at the Bishop Deans house. We had a lesson with a girl named Cameo. We taught her the restoration and i could not speak through the whole lesson it was so hard! 

Wednesday: We had a lesson with Andrew about the law of Chastity the first lesson that I ever gave on that subject. I thought it was going to be so awkward. But it was so good at the end of the lesson he said that he could feel the spirit so strongly! What i never thought you could through that lesson it was so cool!! Then we went and saw the Adys such a great family! They are all less actives though... 

Thursday: Weekly planning! It was great Sister Hammond and I are going strong. We went and saw sister Ainsworth she is great! She is getting her patriarchal blessing on next Sunday! Cant wait (:

 We did service we are working with a total of 5 people doing service for them it's crazy but fun! we are just organizing everything! Sorry my time is almost up! I just pretty much did service for the rest. I hope everyone has a great week love you all!(:
Have fun in New York!!!(:

Week 6

My week this week has been fun and crazy!

Wednesday: Was district meeting it was great! I for sure needed it. It was on being confident and how we need to make sacrifices for the Lord to help us out. Also if you have a lack of faith pray!! You need that faith to believe! You have to gain your own testimony and not rely on others testimonies. A lot of people can come on a mission but if you're not fulfilling to become an example of Jesus Christ then you wont gain any knowledge that you need. God has called 18 and 19 year old's to go serve and teach this wonderful doctrine instead of professional sales men. God will help us out, he is there to help us teach this doctrine. Also we can fail at least we are failing at trying and that equals success. After district meeting we went and saw Sister Ainsworth she's a recent convert and she is the best working on going to the temple to do baptisms.(: Then we had a lesson with Andrew the 14 year old boy that is getting baptized on October 15th he is so great and so strong in the gospel. We talked about the Word of Wisdom and agreed to stop drinking coffee(: He's so funny! He was thinking that you cant drink monsters so he said that he wont be able to stop drinking them but he will try to. He was just funny. Then we went finding and we found a lady named Comela and told us to come back. Then we went and saw the Coats they are less active we just talked to them tried to figure out to help them and asked if we can do service with them on Friday. She agreed we are working on that family.  

Thursday: We had weekly Planning, It was good.   Then we went and saw Sam and Kathrine and they are investigators that we are working with. Then we saw Harold he's also an investigator such a funny guy!! We came by and he told us that he doesn't want us to go back to our friends saying that our efforts didn't bear any fruits while he was saying this he threw us an apple haha so funny!! Then we went and saw Sister Dean the bishops wife and just talked to her. Then we had dinner at the Thompsons they are less active and the wife is an investigator. Such a great family. 

Friday: We went and had a lesson with Cori she's a less active and we talked to her about the priesthood and how the women also have a part in the priesthood read Moses 6: 59-60. Then we went and saw Sister Coats and did service with her. She has a Christmas tree farm i love it!! Then we had dinner at the Johnsons. Then afterwards we went finding and saw the Rothermels which are less active with Abby, Shes getting ready to go serve in Finland. Then we went and saw Sister Mitchell and that was just a crazy lesson we didn't even have a lesson the kids were crazy so we just played with the kids and prayed. 

Saturday: We went and saw Kathy Riley she's less active and she wont come back to church because all churches are true for her. There isn't one certain church that is the true church. Then we went finding and met this lady named Shawn and she wants us to come back. Then we had a lesson with Andrew about how we need to pray and read the Book Of Mormon it was a great lesson! Then we went and did service with sister Horne shes a less active that broke her leg she hasn't been able to walk for awhile so that's why she hasn't come to church. Then we went and saw Marge a lady that wants to die catholic but loves having us over.  

Sunday: Great Sabbath day! Abby Miles spoke for her farewell talk she did so good! Then after church we tried investigators that didn't answer the door. Then we had dinner at the Barkers house. Then went finding and we met a guy that yelled at us! We knocked and they were watching a movie they looked at us and they couldn't see us but then they went back to watching T.V we knocked again he came out and said do you know what time it is we said 8 he's like that is right why are you knocking so late when we have to wake up super early to go to work. We apologized and he's like you're not sorry stop apologizing because you're not sorry. It went on for awhile. Then we left and went and saw Sister Reyes shes going to give me a back message soon so excited! She also made us a cake! Yummy!
