Hey guys!
How is everyone? So Im not getting transfered!=) and Sister McConkie get to stay companinons. =) We are both pretty stoked about it because Presidnet Miskin ( he is in the mission presidency and is in our ward) made it sound like that wasnt really going to happen. So We are pretty pumped.Weav you are totally right I am fulling the true purpose of my mission now haha.
this week was great=) Our lesson with C___the guy in his 90's was great as usual and we always just wanna laugh. Then on tuesday We helped some less actives move and I loved it!! haha It was so nice to wear pants again. Oh how i missed them. I went on two exchanges this week. It was fun. ONe of the excahnges I went on was to banning. The whole time I was there I felt like I was in Idaho. It was so weird . ha i wasnt too sure how I felt about it. While I was there it was awesom though. I absolutly love the the Hispanic communities!! The peopel are so nice and so friendly and they talk to you so much. I have also never had so many cat calls in my life I loved that exchange. It has been so hot here this week and we have super bad farmers tans. haha However , like 4 people have told me this with I could pass as a Latin person. Ill take it.
We got another investigator C____ this week. She is amazing!!! and she loves the Book of mormon. The only problem is her family is super against it. However, B__, C___, and Dillon all went to church this week! It was amazing . I loved it! One cool thing happened while I was on exchanges. We were walking and we started talking to M____. Well we told her about the restoration in about 5 min and she just started to cry. and she jsut couldnt stop. She said she knew we were gods messengers the minute she saw us! and that she knew there was a prophet. It was great. They are going back to teach her again=)
Family, I feel myself getting weirder and weirder. It's a problem. I am jsut akward now. haha the other day we had to go to a young single adult thing and I almost died. haha oh well =)
I was blessed this week. A person we met on exchanges  was really positive we are going to hell. I feel comforted knowing that I am now saved.=)
We also met a man who told us all about the alien life here =) It was probably one of most factual contacts I have had .. not =) He also told us the long story about how he bought a couple of wives from the phillipines. I now know where to find the best husband when I get home=) I do have to say I have never been called sweetheart is such demeaning ways as I have this week. I hate the word sweet heart=) So I stuck my foot in my mouth this week. While I was on exchanges with a sister we were walking past this house and all these little chewawas (or howver the heak you spell it) were barking at us.( For some reason every person in cali has like 3 chewawas) Well on my mission I have come to absolutly hate those little dogs.So while they were barking at us I told this sister my true feelings about them. It turns out she has a ton at home.....oops.=)
Mom that makes me so happy about your missionary work!! That is what it is all about =)
It is Easter week....I think I am more excited for this than for christmas. He LIVES!! How greatful I am for the savior and all that he does for me personaly. He died and was ressurected. I know that. We went below any pain I have ever felt so he could lift me up. When I allow him to he carries me. I really felt that this week. he just keeps my feet moving a little longer, he helps to talk to just one more stranger, her filly my mouth with what to say, he helps me try just one more time when everything in me is so ready to be done. He helps me push pass all my limits just becasue he loves me and sees who I really can become!!! Please celebrate  his life this week The amaizng palmers invited us to study about the passoever and easter last night I loved it  and their adorable kids are so cute and love the savior  !! KYlee and Colton I am so proud of you for both choosing not to go to those dances before you were 16. Thank you so much!!!! that made me one happy big sister.
One thing I have really learned on my mission is how important humor and laughter are. Especailly when I go on exchanges. There are so many sisters who hare having such a hard time and they just need to laugh:) It helps so much. missionary work is hard. life is hard. but if you can laugh you can find hope and joy in the little thingns.
be greatful=)
I love you all !!!

"put another shrimp on the bobby" - Dumb and dumber‏

Hey Family and Friends.
I Love hearing from all of you every week! You are all so great. Mom Im glad all of you survived camping all week=) It looked like a lot of fun. I cant belive how much everyone is growing. Chun has some pretty sweet  hair now!!
Well we started off with another pretty rough week. It seems like Heavenly Father lets us really struggle the whole week and then blesses us on weekends. It's awesome =) We had another really funny lesson with the 90 year old we are teaching. He is so great. I love him=) Sadly I have to say that we are no longer teaching our Mountain man. He told us that the lord told him that, "Man should not be taught by women." We were both a little bummed but its ok. He will be taught by some elders =). We got rained on this week=) Sister Palmer came and rescued us. Well we also went up and worked in Oak Glen that night and it snowed up there. It was so weird to be around snow. It was kinda creepy. There was a ton of fog everywhere and we had to go down these dirt roads to these houses taht are like hidden back in the trees. We felt like we were fresh out of a horror movie. and for some reason California has a ton of dang crows.
This week was MLC. President taught us so much about the Gathering of Iseral. Its so crazy. The Book Of Mormon is so amazing and it just keeps getting deeper and deeper. Please make sure that you are taking time to read it. It will change your life! So one of the investigators we picked up this week is already progressing so much. He watched 3 sessions of Confernce. He is just burning through the Book Of Mormon and jsut keeps studying. Please pray for B___. Its so crazy how much the lord lets you love these people.!
Speaking on Confernce... Wasn't it great!!!! Elder Holland threw it down once again. Elder Holland remined me of my Mission President. You love his talks and they are amazing but you are also a little afraid of them=). I loved So many talks. I really loved Elder Bednars talk. To me it just seemed like they were telling us to gain our own unshakable testimony of Christ. I am so thankful for conference. I felt the same way about President Packers talk mom. I love him.
This week I am just so thakful that I get to be a missionary. I love it. I love Christ the great I AM. I feel as though he has been showing me my many weaknesses to help me make them strong "ether 12". I am so blessed.
Sister McConkie is amazing! I love her!! I have honestly never met a girl who is so much like me in almost every way. Its weird. We are best friends.
Mom the Tide saved my life !!! im so happy not to smell like flinstone vitamins=) YOu are the best!1
Happy b day bro! I hope you get my card soon!=)
Mckayla! haha yes tell boone to write me!! He is so funny!
We ate with the NNah this weeks. They are from Africa and they fed us some afriacn food. It had Cow intestine, dried fish, goat meat and bone marrow. and you hand to eat it with your hands. It was not good=) haha and Sister McConkie roped herself into "halfin ta" eat seconds=) they are an amazing family and I love them! I Love you all!

The lords work!‏

Hey Family and Friends,
What a week! I loved all the pics of camping=) I hope that you guys are haveing so much fun! I always loved the simpson springs trip =) I feel bad for kylee brooke. I hope she gets feeling better soon, and ben =) you are the best brother in the whole in world!! I am so excited . You guys are my fav=) I'm sorry i  ever slammed your head in the mini van when we were little=) I didtn feel the earthquake! geez are there like a million happening latley?
So this week. Was Interesting but amazing! Monday night it was great We went and taugh C___ He is a 91 year old man who was just baptized. He was soo funny=) We taught his with his 88 year old sister. When we opned the door he was trying to read our name tags to say our names and he called Sister McConkie "Sister Christ" and he really thought that was her name. =) He is from New York so he as an awesome accent. The whole night was filled with me and Sister McConkie Yelling to be heard and trying not laugh. They got side tracked very easily and would forget what they were going to say a lot. It was bad during the closing prayer sister McConkie just lost it and started laughing and the whole situation and we have this problem where when one of us starts laughing the other one does way hard and we cant stop. I have to pretened I was coughing. Luckily they are so elderly they had no idea what was gong on. =)
Then the rest of the week happend... EVERYTHING cancelled. every appointment fell through even member ones. all back ups fell through and we were wondering if something happend in the church with the media becasue the persecution was worse this week. We were exhausted both physically and mentaly. We were also being super hard on ourselves and critical of everything we were doing. However, it was such a blessing that it was a hard week. We studies more fervently. Our Companinonship studies increaced so much. We started studing more together at lunch and were always talking about the blessings of the lord. We worked harder and we tried more. and let me tell you we were happier than ever. We felt true joy despite the things that were going on around us. Our testimonies deepend so much. we served each other more. Then came Saturday. That morning we had the most spirtual comp study I have ever had and we felt that God loved us so much. Then we went to work. To start the day off right. We went to D___ and S___s. we hadn't been able to get ahold of them since they didnt show up to church on Sunday. Well they were home and saw us knock and ring the door bell and didnt answer. So we texted them and told them we would always be here for them and that we knew this would bless their family and all that jazz. Well they text us back jokeinly and said its ok sistas we know Jesus loves us. It was rough and it broke our hearts. However, we determined we werent going to let it get us down. So we said and fervent prayer and kept working. We had a lot of interesting conversations that day. We talkled to a lot of people and and a lot of rejection. There were also so very mean people that day who we allowed to frustrate us. people who wanted to bash. and started saying very bad things about sacred temple ordinances and other stuff. By the time it was time for the General Women Broadcast we were emtionaly beat. We rode to the Womens broadcast with Sister Palmer. That was much needed she always makes us feel better! The Broadcast was so great! It wsa so weird to see Salt lake sometimes I feel like my past life and Utah never really exisited. Well during the broadcast we got a text from a member in our ward that we needed to get to his house as fast as possibel he had someone for us to teach. So at 8:45 We went and taught D____. D_____ has been reading the Book of Mormon and before we even taught he asked when he could get baptized. We were both in shock!! So we taught him and booked it home to be home on time. He came to church yesterday and is on date for baptizem for April 20th. The lord answeres in the 4th watch. Its when you show him that you will work on and keep trusting him even when you dont think you can. Its when you are ready to quit that he answers. He gave us sucsess but it wasnt anything we did!!!!! It was all him. We just had to show him he could bless us. It was amazing! We have been sooo happy and filled with joy this week. That night we did a lot of repenting for our frustration and we were so happy.
Oh yea On exchanges I had to go with a spanish sister in her area this week. I am now a fluent Spanish speaker=) I wish I did learn a little though and I could kinda understand what was going on. It was like I entered a whole differnt world. I love the spanish culture! The people we talked to on the streets actually invited us in and were so so nice even if they didnt want to hear our message! They are so humble and kind . I loved it. However, in order to keep my mind from wondering in lessons because I was so lost had to recite the same scriptures over and over in my head. I even ate amazing mexican food that night!
Speaking of food. We are eating with N___ Family this week. They are from africa and they said they are feeding us a very exotic meal and then they just laugh. This should be interesting=)
Sister McConkie and I are better than ever! She is my best frined. We are so much alike it's crazy! My stomach hurts every day from laughing so hard. We are terrifed though. So President Miskin who is in our mission Presidency, is in our ward and yesterday he told us that He has been begging President to keep us togther and in this ward for a little bit and President said thats not gonna happen he needs us other places. We are so scared! Transfers are next week. How did that happen??I am so thankful for her and all the fun we have.
This week I have though a lot about grattitude. or However, the heck you spell it. I swear I am just getting dumber and dumber on my mission. Well anyways I read a talk on it and it said, "to have gratitude always in your hearts is to touch heaven." That hit me so much. I have really been working on having more thankful prayers. It has changed my whole perspective. I am so thankful for all of you ! thanks for being in my life an dthe wasy you have incluenced me! I'm excitedfor another week of work!!
stay cool,
Sister Webb

Im happy =)

Hey family and friends!!
It was another great week!!! Im so glad to hear from everyone and thanks agian for all the Birthday wishes.
Man where did this week go? We have been so blessed in this area and there is a lot to do . Some days it is overwhelming because We dont know where to start.
Yes mom my Birthday was great jsut worked and it was awsome=) The best thing about it was D___ and S____. We were teaching them that day and they showed up with ballones and a cheese cake. I have never loved people so much. Little background story he is an x um i guess you could say gangsta and he is just so funny. They are my favorite couple in the world and their little kids are amazing! They have been doing so great and they said they would come to church but then they never showed and we cant get ahold of them... please pray for them.
So thursday was so interesting. We started teaching a straight up mountin man. We had to drive up to Oak Glen which is in the mountains of our area.We were going up to the Rileyes( who are members) and  We were going to teach T_ B____ their friend. Well they told us that they lived on a farm called the Riley Farm. I just pictured a regular farm but I was so wrong. When we drove up to their house we were so confused. All of the sudden we were surrouned by big plantaion houses and tons and tons of peple dressed up in colonial times clothes. There were civil war reenacments or however the heak you spell it. they had like old school cold mineing just all kinds of stuff! Mom and Clair would have loved it. we were soooo confused here were two mormon missionaries trying to hunt down our members. We asked some colinal young men where were were and they kindly "escorted" us to the Rileyes main house. They even talked like old times it was crazy. Well the story doesnt end there. When we got there Sister Riley told us that we had to drive up to T__s. We went off roading in this little truck way up into the mountains behind their house to teach T__ and Brother Riley was meeting us there. We finally got to T__s and he is a real Mountain man!! He lives outside and cooks in a camp fire. It was so interesting! He is an awsome guy and Im so excited to teach him he really wants to know if the church is true. He has the longest beard ever. Well half way through the lesson Brother Riley had to leave. So when we were finished we went around t he corner and Brother Riley had taken the truck and all we had to get down the mountain was a 4-wheeler and we had no cell service so sister Riley hauled us down the mountain on the four wheeler. I was freaking out the whole way down!! I just knew I was going to get in a ton of trouble and that i was being the most disobedient missionary ever and half way loving being on 4 wheeler again. Dont worry I already confessed to president.=) It was just a real interesting day.
We also were inveted to a 14 year old boys B day paty. Well Non of their family and friends are LDS and our ward has been working with this family for a while. Well there were a ton of people there and litlte boys and lots of beers and yea. Well they wanted us to do a spirtual thought for their family befoer we left so we were just going to go with the family in teh living room but then EVERYONE came and we had to stand up nad alll these 14 year old boys were so confused. It was jsut the most akward situation I have ever been in. I got so nervous I started to stutter when I was talking. It was rough haha Sister McConkie and I jsut laughed all week about how that is the most akward thing we have ever done. gotta love it =)
Another thing that happned this week is that When we were buying Laundry Dertergent last week I forced us to buy the cheap stuff. Well all our clothes now smell like Flin stone vittamins this week. It smells horrible, never get the cheapest laundry detergent.
This week I have been called to repentance a ton. I am so aware of how inadequate I am. repentance is awesome!!!! please use it . It is vital to our return home to our Heavenly Father. My testimony of Joseph smith has grown so much deeper. I am so blessed that I get to be on a mission. and I cant wait for conference.!
I love love love sister McConkie. When all my friends were joking about me going on a mish to find brides maids they werent kidding. She is the best we just laugh all the time and I love how we can make fun of ourselves.she is awesome!
Well I love you famil!!

I sleep through anything=) and Yes mom I know the Ellsworth Family!! I love them so much!! They were one of my favs=) I am so glad that everyone is doing so great! mom those stories about aniston made me laugh so hard. I am so glad everyone is having a good week.
Ok so my week was Amazing! We had a couple really low momentes but when you show the lord that you wont give up and you will walk with faith and keep working he blesses you!! So we know a little bit more about what is happening in our area this week.
So tuesday was just a blur. we walked a ton talked to a lot of people had a couple really akward experiences and yea.
So sister McConkie and I have been trying to be exactly obedient and to fully give ourselves and our hearts to the lord and have so much more faith! Well on wednesday in our prayer we told heavelnly father where we were going what time and asked to find someone. WEell we found 2 of the mmost amazing people I have ever met. D____ and S____ =) We taught them twice this week. I have never instantly loved people so much! they are married and have two kids. Please please pray for them. and through them we also met rob and are teaching him. It was such a great day.
On Thursday we had a super bold lesson with the coopers who have been investigating for years. It was awesome though. We jsut straight up told them it was time to ask god and they couldnt tell god what they were going to do he would tell them. It all started with an awesome "how to begin teaching" It really is so important. There were a lot of long silences in the lesson. Howver, they said they had never thought about some of the things they talked about and they came to church on sunday. Please Pray for them.
Friday I went on my first Exchange with my new assignment. It was interesting. Haha I felt a little like a therapist but it was awsome=)
Saturday was so great!!! Elder Neil A Anderson had a mission conference with us=) I got to shake his hand and he peered into my soul. I never knew he was so funny. The whole talk was on teh atonment. I cant explain it. I feel like If i were to explain the atonmnet I would describe it the way I always have. Howver, I feel like my spirt understands it so much differntly than ever before. When we closed with his testimony he flat out said he is a witness of Jesus Christ. It was so powerful. I will never forget it!
I have really been trying to focus on seeing people through eternal eyes. Its funny how someithing so simple has changes my whole mission. there is so much more to people.
I LOVE Sister McConkie. We have so much fun together. I feel like I am always laughing. We were laughing so hard this week that i bout threw up right before a lesson becasue something really funny happend. Its funny becasue Her first day here I made her throw up that morning when we went running and i felt like the worst trainer ever!!! we just have fun!!
Well just know that I am happy and that I know that this is the lords work!!please pray for them! I miss you all so much!!!
happy st p day!
love ya!

what a week!!‏

Hello Family and Friends!!=)
Once again I absolutely loved hearing from all of you! It really is just what I need every Monday to get me going again=)
Well this week has been the craziest week of my entire mission. This week we had Transfers on Wednesday. So Monday and Tuesday were spent working and trying to get the area all ready for the new Elders coming to the area. Then Wednesday came. Sister Munoz and I drove to the mission office and I dropped her off with her new companion while I waited with another sister for the new Sister missionaries to come in. I was so nervous I couldn't eat anything. Well then we all went into the meeting and I met my new companion Sister McConkie!! I absolulty love her!! And yes she is related to the one and only Bruce R. McConkie. He was her great uncle. She is from Salt Lake City and she is 19. Now this is where it gets cool. So I cant remember if I told you guys this story a couple months ago but he goes. So one day when I was serving in Redlands Sister Straatman and I had to run up to the temple for some reason. Well when we got there. I (of course) forgot something in the car.  So we had to run back and get it. Then when we were entering the temple grounds there as a family that passed us . Well it was Sister McConkie and her family. She told us that she was coming in a couple months and that her and her family were on vacation in California and thought they would stop by and see where she was serving. We talked for about 5 min and then she left. It was weird though because when she left I thought about her a lot and I prayed for her that night. Well She had been stalking the mission blog for a few months and when ever she saw my picture she just had a feeling that we would be companions and she wanted me to train her and then we met at the temple. Well when we both walked into the training meeting we saw each other and just both knew and we were right. It's crazy how the lord works.
Well to make that day even more crazy. I was informed that I was a Sister Training Leader. Sister Training Leaders are like Zone leaders for Sister Missionaries. There are about 8 of us in the mission. I wanted to throw up as soon as I found out I have no idea what in the world I am even doing yet and one of my jobs is to go on exchanges with sisters every week to help them in their areas.I have no idea what I am doing and I sure hope President prayed about it. To make it a little more stressfull They were supposed to tell me last transfer so that I could arrange a place for my companion to go while I went to MLC the next day but they forgot to tell me=) Dont worry we worked it out and on Thursday I made it to MLC (mission leadership conference).
That brings me to my next big event.....IM DRIVING!!!=) President gave me the green light=) Any way on Thursday I picked up the other Sister Training leader to take her to MLC and I got us soooo lost. Somehow we ended up in the Redlands airport but dont worry we still made it to mlc with 10 minutes to spare.  I feel like im a whole new woman driving=) just kidding but really.
So White washing an area has been interesting. I have no idea what I am doing and what Is going on in the area I am serving in. The ward mission Leader has only been in the area for about 3 months as well so we are all just trying to figure it out together.=) This bishop has been so helpful though. I love the ward. I am in the Palmers ward! the people I live with and I love it. I have never walked so much my entire life. Even though we have a car I'm not to big on using it. We have talked to sooooo many people this week. Its funny because pretty much everyone we talk to that really wants to hear what we have to say we end up "halfin ta" refer to the Spanish missonaries. Oh how I wish i spoke Spanish.
One thing I love about Sister McConkie is how alike we are. We have a lot of fun together. It's funny. I have never been so stressed out on my mission and been rejected so much but I'm still so happy. I love how she is game for whatever. The other day there was a guy down in a field digging a huge trench. Well I wanted to go talk to him and she was all game. So here were two sister missionaries in skirtks climbing through a fence "offroading" in the dirt and mudd to talk to him. He looked at us like we were crazy. He wasnt interested but we had fun. I love her testimony as well. I look up to her so much and I will learn so much from her.
this week obedience has stuck out to me so much. I want to be the kind of missionary that if Christ were to come right now he would take me home with him. I know that I am no where even close to being that way. I need so much more faith!!! But I want to strive for that. Please read the Book Of Mormon!!! it will increase your faith so much! we dont realize what we have! we really dont. I just want you all to know that I know that Christ lives!!!! I know it with all my heart!  Its funny how happy I am . I am so happy. Its crazy how my heart has changed. The things that were once there seem to be fading and just filling with a love for these people and my savior and that's all I want!
On Saturday We are having a mission Conference and Elder Neil A. Anderson is speaking to us!! I am so excited I cant wait!! I cant think of a better Birthday Present! Man where has the past 5 months gone? It has been 7 months since I saw Ben and Mckayla!
I loved Chuns letter. Man it sounds real serious snap backs vans and everything=) I say go for it!! I have always love it!!!!!!!!!=) I love you all so much thanks for all your support!!!!
siter Webb!!!!!


Hello everyone!
wow it sounds like everyone has had such a great week! I really love hearing from you all! wow I feel like so much has happened since the last time I spoke to all of you! well for starters I am getting transferred sorta. I will still live where I live but I will be serving in a different area in the mountains. Also I am whitewash training which means I am training and we will be going into an area that hasn't had missionaries. Haha this poor sister please pray for her!! I am so nervous to train! I have no idea what I am doing. I have to admit I am a little surprised I thought for sure I was staying in my area. Sister Munoz is also leaving that area. It's crazy things just started to really get going and then we leave!! we really saw miracles happen together! we went from an a dead to area and to having two baptisms and a lot more investigators and the ward is so excited about missionary work. I am a little sad to leave but I trust the lord!! haha i keep thinking about my future comp leaving the mtc tomorrow=) please pray for her=) we are gonna need it! we will also be driving in a truck this transfer. I need to buy a gps!!
I am so stoked that Ben and Mckayla are going to Az! and they are having another little girl=) man that is so dang weird!! Mckayla I want pregnacny pics=) the pictures of Aniston are adorable and they melt my heart just like always. I am glad Clair is getting some time off!!! and dad and chris are going to seattle that should be so fun! that is crazy that Nicole and remmie are already going back !
This week was so great!! our area was so blessed! Man I love the people here so much its unreal, they really have become like family to me. On monday we met a lady who has a pig farm... she showed us all of them and the ones she has as house pets.. then we met the biggest dang pig i have ever seen in my entire life!!! it weighs 650 lbs... what a ham=) this week I have been really looking at familes... thats why I am out here. the moms fighting with their kids to be quiet, dads playing ball with their kids, thats what life is all about the small simple moments and family=) we had a lot of successes in less active work. so many of them opened up to us and we were able to finally hear what their real concerns were and had a lot of powerful lessons lead by the spirit. we had exchanges this week and I loved the sister I was with and we were able to teach a couple of amazing lessons! It's the coolest thing to see when the spirit really starts working with someone and when they start to repent and use the atonement. there is such a different light in their eyes.
The thing that brought me the most joy this week was the members. their whole mind set towards missionaries and the missionary work has changed so much in the past 6 weeks. When I first got here our ward didn't really trust missionaries and missionary work wasn't a huge priority. that is completely different!! we have people telling us that they have people for us to teach this week! ( too bad we wont be here) the bishop is on fire, he placed 3 books of mormon last week and the ward has started to as well! the whole fast and testimony meeting was on missionary work. D_____gets baptized  saturday!!! I am so excited11 the ward is so excited too=) they havnt had a baptism in a long time so they are all so excited about it. the ward is changing and the missionaries in that ward better be ready=) haha the bishop and ward mission leader are  not happy that we are getting transferred.
so it rained..... a ton!!!!!! holy cow I have never been so wet but i absolutely loved it. I thought about Chris's saying "life isnt about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to dance in the rain." well we danced =) I couldn't stop smiling and laughing all day because we were so wet and looked so pathetic but you better believe we sure had fun=) I love sister Munoz so much. I sure will miss  her!
so we had an awesome experience this week. a brother in our ward in a seminary teacher and he loves us. He texted us one day and said that while he was preparing for his lesson for hte next day he received very specific revelation and that we needed to come to class the next morning. so we went and he teaches High school Jr's and Sr's. well when we got there he had everyones names written across the chalk board and everyone had to write a list of every non member person they knew. the kids wrote down so many names. well then he read the talk "a voice of warning"  and talked about how they needed to share the gospel with these people they knew. then one kid raised his had and asked if we could all kneel in prayer and ask heavenly father for revelation on who they needed to share the gosple with. so there we were at 6:30 in the morning Kneeling with a bunch of high school students seeking revelation on who to share the gospel with. and they received revelation!!! it was so awesome! we have been hearing about how they have placed books of mormons and have been sharing the gosple like crazy since then=) the youth are amazing!!! and this marvelous work is hastening!
I am still so hung up on the pre earth life this week. I keep thinking about who we were and what faith we had. this week however I thought about a different part. We were still in Heaven when our brother Jesus Christ endured the atonement.... I wonder what we were doing during that moment. I wonder if we were all praying to give him the strength to do it. I'm sure heaven was full of weeping that day and a somber quietness as we watched as he endured undescribable pain for us.....I wonder what our father said to us.... It has just been on my mind a lot. we were so full of faith! Our spirits are still faithfull to him that calls us but are we listening to him with faith? I am so thankful for him and who all of you were before we came here.

Hey Family and Friends!!
I hope that everyone is doing great!!  I hope that things all start to slow down a little for all you!
This week was great.Tuesday we did a lot of member work and I just have to say I love the members here so much! A less active lady in our ward absolutely loves us. It's funny because when we go over there she says she needs to run check on things outside but really she is just going out for her ciggs. Anyway, we got her to commit to coming to our baptism next Saturday. Its not church but it's a start =) On Wednesday we had a Zone Conference and our mission President came and talked to us all day. It was intense. After that Sister Munoz and I had a cool experience we were able to go and rededicate our chapel for missionary work. Before we did we sang a couple songs. The spirit was so strong. Just me and sister Munoz in the chapel singing nearer my god to thee. I will for sure never forget it. We went out with the Young Women on splits that night and I learned that Justin Beiber has been deported..... what happened to my beibs? Thursday...... Ha I'm not really sure what happened thursday I cant remember. Friday was an awesome day! We received a referral so we went and contacted her. She is so great! I love her so much already, she also has a 2 year old who is just chatting away and it made me wonder if that is what Aniston is now like. The cool thing is though is that there is a married couple down below and we started to teach him as well. He is such a neat guy. He is covered in tatts and looks pretty scary. However, He is super religious well spiritual I guess you could say. He knows his bible inside and out and was really interested in what we had to say because he doesn't agree with what a lot of churches say about the trinity. He has been all over the world pretty much. He pulled out salt from the dead sea and all kinds of way cool stuff. I am so excited to be teaching them.
On Friday we were also asked to be part of mission for a day. This is where the Youth are thinking about going on missions get to do a mini mission. On Friday night they all showed up and had an opening devotional. Then they got their "calls" and their comps. Then they went through a mini Mtc. Sister Munoz and I were in charge of teaching the class talk with everyone. It was pretty funny. This one poor kid got me laughing really hard. We were having them role play. So this one kid volunteered to come up in front of everyone and contact sister Munoz. The situation was that sister Munoz was sitting on a park bench and he was going to contact her. Well he started and was trying to make small talk and he without even thinking he said," So there's a lot of birds....and bees here...." He instantly got super embarrassed and turned red. I started laughing so hard! I felt bad cause I should have made him feel better but I just couldn't help it. Sister Munoz saved the day and helped him out cause I was gone. Don't worry I repented.  That day we also saw a sight I will never forget. There was this really old man who has a lot of tatts everywhere and he was walking his pit bull with his shirt off.... There needs to be an age limit on being able to take your shirt off.. Haha but he was one hip old man with lots of saggy tatts.
On Saturday we had to sisters come out with us for their Mini Mission. They were so tired by the end of the day. We did a lot of walking and they got to sit in on a really cool lesson. I was reall nervous for this lesson because I Knew I was going to have to be super bold with one of the ladies we were teaching and I didn't want it to go wrong especially with the two younger girls. However, the lord was so mindful and softened hearts! I loved it so much! Funny story this day too! We went and were teaching an older lady in a rest home. Well in the middle of the lesson she said hold on girls I have to go smoke I will be back in five minutes... It was awkward but we said ok. Then like ten minutes later we see the staff rolling her in and her head is droopy and It looked like something really bad happend. Then one of the nurses came and said ," Sorry she always does this she smokes so fast that she passes out.". I felt bad for her but it was a little funny at the same time=)
Yesterday was great! I love church and our ward is finally starting to get excited about missionaries and the work=) I am so excited and I love them! We had dinner with the R____family and D____ and D____ opened up so much! she is so excited for her baptism=) two weeks away! I love her so much. It's the coolest thing to see people change!  Next week is transfers. I will know by Monday what is going on.
This week I am just so grateful for Healing power of the atonement. I have watched it change people including me. Elder Richards of the 70 said something that really got me thinking. " I wish I could just take away the veil for a moment and you could see yourself in that grand council. Imagine yourself in that premortal world. He chose you by name and asked if you would be willing to come because he needed the best. Maybe we were given the privilege of making a covenant. If we could only hold onto that and remember who we are every day." We all were saved for this time to be missionaries together. It is crazy how the lord is getting us ready for his coming and im so luky to be a missionary and get to feel it. Please continue to be a missionary it will be a great blessing... Our Messiah is coming.
On a lighter note my birthday is approaching. Yup I will be an old maid but that is ok =) I figured I could use this to ask for something =) The Prince of Egypt cd =) and big bag of Qunia from Costco=) I love you all!!!

Hey Family and Friends,

How are all of you this week? I hope you are all doing great!! I have the best family in the entire world!! thanks so much for all the Valentine packages! Mckayla! i loved your letter so much and all those pictures and all the candy. I will write you back soon! Mom thanks so much for all the Sherries Berries they are sooo sooo sooo good! And dad and Chris! I loved the package! i love my new socks and the cat thing made me laugh=)

So this week was great! We have two investigators on date to be baptized! D_____ is getting baptized on March 8th! She has given up coffee this week so its been a long week she said but she is doing it=) and K___ is April 8th. Please Please keep them in your prayers!

So a couple of interesting things happened this week. We were out walking and we started to talk to this lady and this guy and they just started to yell at us. He went off on how Mormons had aluminum helmets and how there was no war with aliens in New York=) and of course I always love the magic underwear comments=) I just wanted to laugh. I didn't, but I sure wanted to. Also this week we taught Seminary. It was pretty cool. I really look up to these kids. 

So yesterday I was fasting. It was almost time for dinner When our dinner appointment called and said it was going to be later. I couldn't wait any more and my poor comp had already put up with me without food all day. so I broke my fast and ate the only thing we had in our car. instant potatoes. The little bead ones. Well I was starving so I ate tons! I didn't even think about the fact that they would expand in my stomach when they were mixed with water. I was so sick!! So moral of the story is never ever eat a lot of instant mashed potatoes before they are cooked. The Palmers have been out of town this week so we have been taking care of their animals. I am not a fan of their chickens!!! They are the hardest things to control. It is always an adventure trying to herd them back in the coop at night but It always gives me a good laugh=)

So this week there have been  a few things that have really stood out to me. There was a fireside this week and it was a husband and wife who were speaking she has a rare disease that she got when she was 13 and is dying. Her Husband knew she was dying when they met and they still got married and had a little boy. She is not doing to well right now and its crazy because they are both so young. Every one was crying The veil felt so thin. They truly loved each other. Not the fake love. The kind of love that is spiritual and built on Christ. She said a quote from Presidents Hinckleys wife where she talked about how President Hinckley has always helped her fly and has been the wind beneath her wings. That's the kind of family and marriage I want. I am not focusing on that but I just thought about how I need to continue to grow so that someday I can have that and always support my husband and family in the gospel. 

The plan of Salvation really hit home this week to. We were teaching a family who lost a son in a car wreck when he was 17. It was just so neat to be able to talk to them about the lords plan and his timing. I have so much to work on. I am so thankful I still have so much more time to be humbled and to continue to grow closer to my savior. I am so blessed! Well I hope that everyone has a great week! I sure love all of you and hope you know I am praying for you! please keep going with the missionary moments!

love you!!!!

Happy V day‏

Hello everyone!
Sorry I sent the other one early again! It was good to hear from everyone. Im glad that Clair is taking a break! I hope that dad and chris are doing great!  and I am stoked ben got accepted to med school in Arizona! I have to say that is my vote but wherever you decide i will support ya... i guess=)
This week Heavenly Father showed me that this really is his work. We got a new investiagator!=) There have been a couple of frustration prayers that I had to repent of this week=) I am so blessed to be a missionary! I love it! it is so great!
Apparently there is huge cat flu epidemic that has broken our here in Yucaipa.. and it is really putting a damper on the spirits of the people we talk to. I have never said so many prayers for so many dang cats in my entire life!!! So I dont know if you know this, but Yucaipa is known for having a lot of trailor parks there really isnt a lot of room in some of them. I had such a great moment We were in a ladies tralior who is pretty poor and we were teaching her. As i sat there on the milk crate ( there was only two chairs, 1 for her and 1 for my comp) I was so happy! I get to go places with the savior everyday that I would never get to other wise. Yesterday was a busy day at church! we taught Sunday school, primary, and some of Young Womans.
This week I really thought about how humble our Heavenly Father is. "By covenant the great God of heaven permits himself to be bound to each of us individually" Edler D. Todd Christofferson. I need to become so much more humble. He wants to bless us and he will bless us if we are obediant to him. He gave us his word. I just want to be such a better disciple of Jesus Christ. We have something so special! we need to be the light. When I finish my mission I really want to be able to say I left it all out in the feild. I have never ever been so mentaly exhuasted in my life as the past few weeks but I am so thankful that my Heavenly Father is there to streagthen me every step of the way =)
This week is Valentines=) I will be treating myself to a smores cup cake on friday=) i hope you all do something as rewarding as that! I remember the days when I would specificaly choose the "be mine" Valentine to put into Dalton Dances valentine box .. and how heart broken I was when he gave Cheyenne Erickson the be mine valentine=) Now I am just worried about what to do for my investigators to help them feel the love of Heavenly Father=) Dad, Clair,And Ben be nice to your amazing wives=) And dont buy them and heater.....=)
 I Love you all so much!!
sister webb!
p.s. mom she is from Evanston=)

temple week =)‏

Hello Family and friends =)
It's been forever!! jk but really. haha I knew mom would be freaking out when I didnt email on Monday and I wasn't surprised that you called the mission office=) (NOTE: Thanks Kenz for letting everyone know!) I am so glad to hear that everyone is doing so great! That is awsome that ben got accepted!! I just hope we hear the same news about Arizona=) I find it really funny that both dad and Clair included details about their trucks in their e mails.. men=) It souinds like life is so crazy! You people need to slow down its Valentines month love is in the air take a second and enjoy it =) Thank you so much mom and kylee for the package=) I will never need another wonder tee again in my life. it made me laugh=) and brookie boo the pics were so great!1=)
Wow soo much has happened since I last e mailed. actually not really. The work here is so slow. I'm not sure what to do about it. actualy I do but its been really hard but thats the way it is supposed to be. =) ON the bright side we have gotten 3 golden investigators for missionaries in other areas!! They are all so awesome.=) Poor sister Munoz I think I have about killed her with all the walking but she is a trooper and is so great! Its really hard to come into an area that has had very disobeidant missionaries but I know that hard work and love will change things. I have never been so prayful in my entire life. There have been a lot of potentails and formers in our area book that havent been contacted for years so we are hunting them down. I set up a meeting with all of the missionaries in the area and the bishop for tomorrow so that we can work with him to help the area. We need it despratly. We need the members !!! =) I know that the only way this area is going to have sucsess is through mighty prayer, mighty faith, and perfect obedience. It is only then that we can qualify for blessings. we can do absolutly nothing for this area but the lord can. It is only through the savior He is everything!
I have absolulty never met so many cats before in my life. I have to say that these arent just regular cats either, they are soooo fat! they make Garfeild look like nothing. Everytime I see our Stake Presidents cat I just laugh really hard. Speaking of our Stake President, He knows Shae. He has a House in France and tehy go like 4 times a year. They fed us a frech meal the other night and it was great!! I have also come to HATE little dogs. everytime we knock a door the first thing you hear is that high pitched barking and then they crawl all over you and lick your face off. I love the people here in yucipa though. Yucipa is the kind of plcae where people ride elctric scooters everywhere and have their dogs running behind to give them exercise. Funny story. We started talking to this lady in her yard the other day and she said sshe was was having a hard time with her family. She wasn't interested in hearing our message but said we could pray with her. Well we were praying and then the sprinklers turned on! we all scattered and in the processes i may or may not have ripped my skirt. I have also never been hit on my so many older men in my entire life! some times it gets really weird but for the most part its just winks and funny remarks. This week we did have someone at church though!! However, it was fast ans testimony meeting.. haha one man started talking about the temple in a little more detail than he should have. HaHa I love sundays=)
We have been doing a lot of less active work this week. I met my favorite lady in the world. She is a less active who is tatted up from head to toe and peirced everywhere, she has the mouth of a sailor. Howver, she has such a strong testimony of the gospel. I love how Heavelnly Father loves all his children so much and is not a respector of persons! I have been praying my guts out to be filled with more charity and I think I learned more about charity from her than anyone=)
Saturday was E______'s Baptisem!! It was so great! I had mixed feelings because I didnt want to go back to Redlands and see everyone again. However, Right when Sister Feldmen pulled up to pick me up that all changed=) she is so great she bought me 3 of my favorite scones and made me laugh the whole way back to Redlands. When I got to E_____s Baptism I wasnt even out of the car when Sister Straatman attacked me. It was weird becasue she was crying and she isnt a cryer. HaHa but it was so great to see her again! Then the best part was seeing E____ and K____. They looked so beautiful in all white! She was so happy. I have was so happy for her it was teh best thing ever!!!!!! and the ward! It was so great to see the ward. haha They all acted like I had died or something I love them so much. It was a little hard to come back to Yucaipa, but I have already started to love the people here so much too! I was able to show Sister Feldman Some pictures of my family and friends and she fell in love with weav=) haha it was pretty funny.
I love the P______s we live with. They are so cute. So sister P_____r is a health nut and i love her. She has helped me so much . haha she makes me all this healthy food to last me the week. I love them they are so full of of charity. Their little girl always leaves notes for us.
I love being a missionary I really do. Yes, there are hard times! I dont think i ever realized how hard a mission would be, but its so amazing at the same time. I am dedicated to the work and we will see miricles here in Yuciapa. Ihave learned so much about our savior and how he helps us grow. I am nothing without him. He will test our faith but then he gives us miricels. People always say he wont give us more than we can handle. Of course he gives us more than we can handle. That is why he gave us teh savior to help us through and to reley on. I have had to repent so much this week and I am so thankful that he is ALWAYS there with open arms. I love Elder Hollands qoute. " A Journey of a Thousand miles begins with one step... watch your step." I know that Heavely Father has a plan for me here in this area. I am relying fully on him and I am so thankful for him. 
I love sister Munoz, I am learning a lot from her and look forward to continuing to learn from her.
My goal for this week is to get into a less active members house that has a dang huge fence around it and it is missionary proof. Just wait I will get in I am determiend. We went to the temple today!! it was so great!! It felt like......home=)
well I love and miss you all !
sister webb

ill go where you want me to go dear lord‏

Hey family and friends!
I hope that everyone had a great week! You all sound so busy! I loved that picture of Aniston on the potty=) I want to hear how Bens Medical School interveiw went. I am sure he did great! However, I secretly hope he didnt do too great because I want him to go to med school in Az not Iowa! I am stoked that awsome things are happening for him though! and he has placed two books of Mormon. Way to go bro=) I sure hope Clair doesnt die! I sure worry about him! That is so great that chun scored 4 goals that basketball game. I mean points. =) Oh dad, I am worried about his foot. I bet he looked pretty graceful out there on that ice though.=) Ok how did I not know that Ben was an AP on his mission?
So this week has been insane. I feel like it has lasted a year. So last monday and tuesday I was still in Redlands. I was able to say goodbye to people, and teach E_____ for the last time. I am so happy that I get to go back for her baptism on Saturday. It was hard to say bye I am not going to lie however, I know that the lord needed me to leave. =) I love everyone there so much and Redlands was amazing. The worst part was saying bye to sister Straatman. haha and apparently the ward was not very happy that we were getting separated. She will forever be one of my best friends. We are so close and I am so glad I was able to be her companion.
Then came Wednesday. Transfers=) I met another sister at the mission office who was going to the same area I was going and we were going to ride out there together. I was secretly hoping I would be able to drive. However unfortunaly I am red dotted... which means I may have gotten one too many tickets in my life before I came on my mission, so driving is off limits to me, for a little while anyways=) Well we got lost... and we had no phone.... so it was an adventure but eventually we found our way. My new area is Yucaipa 4th ward. Yucaipa is so interesting. It for sure does not come to mind when you think southern California. There are some times in my area where I feel like I am living back in Star VAlley! it is so weird. There are horeses and feilds everywhere. I am living in a homeshare with the Palmers and I absolutly love them! They have three little girls and they are adorable. we have chickens and dogs. they are pretty loaded lets just say. There are other times I feel like I am in Utah and other times I feel like I am in idaho and then I feel like I am in Cali sometimes too. It throws me for a loop sometimes.
So before I came here the the mission president talked to me about a few things that needed to happen here. The people here are great. I love the people of the ward I have met so far. However, there was some lack of trust in missionaries.. they have had some disobediance issues here and it has caused some damage. The area is having some difficulties. So the first day we got here we started to fast and pray to help us get things going. We have been working hard. lots and lots of walking and traking down formers and potenials and lots of walking=)  I have never been so tired in my life It has been Challenging but I know that we will be blessed. My new comp is Sister Munoz she is from.............Wyoming=) So we get it=) also , did you know that Elder Bednars wife is from star valley?? Anyway I am excited to learn from Sister Munoz. She doesnt have a lot to say so I have been learning how to love silence.
This has been a lot of transitioning so next week I am sure I will have more to say. We got a new investigator this morning and taught her and we are teaching her agian tommorrow so I am pretty excited about that. Any way that is what is going on over here =)
love you all,
sister webb
and p.s. you better have a non member family or friend in your home for dinner in the next 3 weeks or else=)

remembering sunday - ATL

Hey family and friends!

This week has been cruhazzy!  the work is for sure Hastening here!

Monday night I had the opportunity to go to a family home eveing with a bunch of really old people in a rest home, and yes they were really old. It was so great and im not going to lie super funny =) it was one loud yelling fest because no one could hear anything. At one point I asked the question " How have you seen Christ change your life?" They all thought I was talking about a movie and they were all " No I don't think we have seen that movie," I then asked, " How have you come to know your Savior?" to try and clear up the confusion to which they responded, " NO, i dont think we have seen that one either." it was great =) Oh and me and one of the older men were wearing matching cardigans...=) needles today i unsuccessfully tried to hide my laughter. It was so great but i learned so much from them and the stories of their faithful lives I truly hope to become like them in this life. 

We helped T___clean the room of her son who died last week. not going to lie it was an awkward feeling. However, we were able to teach her so much about the plan of salvation. I just wish there was more we could do for her. I cant even comprehend how it must feel to be her. We did a lot of less active work this week. we are seeing so much success in less active work. 3 went to church and 1 said she is coming and wants to take the missionary lessons. I love them all so much! Wow I have been so blessed to know all these people. We planned E_______ baptism this week=) it is so amazing to see the difference in her! She went form being a girl with blue hair and gages to getting baptized! We were so busy this week ! it seemed like we were running from appointment to appointment. I have prayed so much this week! and we picked up two new investigators!  We had Stake conference and it was all about Hastening the work. Family please go online and look up the Hastening the work link! We were able to hear from President Iring. I love that man. One thing is said really stood out to me. There are many people who are searching for the gospel who wont raise their hands and ask for help because their hands are too tiered. We really need to be a light to people so that they can have hope. I have been working on building my faith so much this week Elder Holland has the best faith formula! " The formula of faith is to hold on, work on, see it through, and let distress of earlier hours-real or imagined- fall away in the abundance of the final reward."

So I am getting transferred to..... Yucippa at least that is how I think you spell it.  I will be there on Wednesday. I have to say when i firs came on my mission trasferrs didnt seem like that big of a deal. However, they are different than i thought. I had no idea that i was going to love these people and this area so much! I truly have met so many wonderful people who I will always love! Redlands really has become "Holy Ground" to me. I am also so afraid to leave Sister Straatman. I love her!! however we will be life long friends! I am stoked to see what the lord has in store for me in Yucippa. i really dont know how to explain it. President talked to me about my new area and he is expecting a lot out of me the next several months there. He said a lot of success or faliure of this area in the next little while is on my shoulders so please please pray for me! I was told there is a lot of rednecks out there =) Just my kind of people =) I am excited to see!

So I watched an old man fall down some stairs this week. It was the saddest/funniest thing I have ever seen. I can say that now because he is ok. However, I have nver heard so many swear words come out of an old High Priests mouth before!  Well Fam Thanks for all the support! I really love you! I next time i write you I will be in Yucippa or however you spell it!

love ya~

t's the climb - Miley Cyrus =)=)‏

Hey Family and Friends!
 Thank you so much for all the emails. They help me so much! I just love hearing from all of you! You all sound like you are doing so great and that makes this sister Very Happy!
This week.... haha I have no idea how to describe this week. I feel like a whole year went by this week. I have experienced my highest highs in the mission and my lowest lows this week.
So lets just start at the begining=) Monday was an awsome p day, Then Tuesday came. It was the weirdest thing ever Sister Straatman and I just felt off for some reason. You have to understand me and Sister Straatman are the best of friends and we never feel that way. It seemed like all day we were fighting the urge to get irritated with eachother. Then all day we felt so weird. We both had no energy, we had huge bags under our eyes, and it was a struggle to make it to that night. We had our last appoinment at 8 with E_____. E______ is someone we have been teaching Since I got here. Her husband is a super less active member and they have a little boy who is 1. They are a young couple who took the lessons with the aps and then agreed to let us teach them again. We felt as if we had hit a wall with her. We had no idea what more we could for her. It seemed as if everyone had given up on her. Even Sister Straatman and I began to loose hope... So that morning before we left we prayed so hard that we wouldnt give up on her too and that we would have the spirit with us. Well by the time we got to her lesson we had both kind of had it for the day. I am very ashamed to admit I had no desire to go teach this lesson. The whole way to the appoinment and to her front door I was pleading with Heavenly Father please dont let me give up on her. Please help her. Please Please Please. Then we went in. The start of the lesson was normal. Sister Straatman asked how her book of mormon reading was going and she said normal and that she still wasnt reading as much as she should. I then asked her "E_____ do you have a testimony of the Book Of Mormon?" I feel so bad to admit that I though the reply was going to be the same as always. "not yet" but this time she replied, "Yes." The room was silent, She then said, "I know it's true. " Neither of us knew what to do! We then asked if she wanted to be baptized and she said yes and we set the date Feb 1!!! Haha after she said that she looked and me and was all , "are you going to cry?"  She never should have asked. I started to cry I was so happy for her! and her family! They want to get sealed someday!!!!!!!!!!! I have never felt that kind of joy before. Straatman and I left so Happy we got home and we just talked about how Satan had been working so hard on us all day. It was the best thing ever!! I didnt at all that night. I was so happy! I prayed all night to continue to bless he becasue i know the advisary is going to be working extra hard. We have been calling all of our ward members and have been asking them to pray for her. I know it is helping.
Then came Wednesday. To start the morning off right we got dropped by 2 of our investigators that were making so much progress.. It broke our hearts for them. This is Eteranl life! Heavenly Father just wants them to come home. Someday they will except it. I just know it. We also had a lesson that night. We brought a sister from our ward. We were there for an hour and a half, it was one of those lessons where our investigator didnt get a word in, and we didnt get a word in, but our member told her whole life story. I even learned the most effective way to potty train little boys =) It's ok though becasue our investigator loved her!!! and so do I =)
Thursday I had my first Exchange, That is were I left sister Straatman to go to a different area and work with a Sister Training leader. I got to go with Sister Y______=) I love her so much. I got to go work in Highland. Our first lesson that night was with an 11 year old boy named J____. He was baptized about 2 months ago. I instantly bonded with J____. Wow talk about a hard life. His parents are hard core drug addicts who locked themselevs in their room all day. He was seperated from his 2 brothers and sisters about a year ago and hasnt been able to speak to them since. He sat there telling me all about how the gospel has changed his life. We read from the book of mormon. My heart was just breaking for him the whole time we met with him. No 11 year old should ever have to be so mature ever! Sister Y_____ got videos of me and him singing togehter. He was so sad that i wasnt coming back and said he is going to pray so hard that I will get moved to his area. It was the sweetest thing ever!!!! I love him! he even walked us to our car and opend my door for me. I am so glad he has the gospel in his life. I will never forget him.
Friday I worked the rest of the day in Highland. We did a lot street contacts=) haha I am still so akward=) I just smile a lot! I loved sister young we laughed a lot and had a lot of funny things happen.I was so excited to see sister Straatman that night though and be back in my area=)
Saturday, Saturday was rough, We started our day out agian by getting dropped by another investigator, and weird stuff happened all day then we got the call. Our Investigator T___  is the lady we are teaching who has had 3 or her 4 children die. Well it is now 4 of her children die. We got the call that night she found her son dead. All of her children are gone....I felt so sick. I dont understand it. There is a lady in our ward who owns a flower shop. We called her up and she gave us a beautiful arrangment for free. She was such a blessing. That night we prayed so much for T____. I didnt sleep. 
Then came Sunday, We started the morning off by going to see T_____ . She is all alone now. NO one. We sat and talked with her and helped with some things and find some stuff she needed for the mortuary. and just tried to bring her some peace. She said she felt comforted to know there was a place for him to be happy. Please keep her in your prayers.. Then it was time for church, Church was Amazing! we were both still just feeling weird. Then we go to church and guess what. One of our investigators that we have been working with forever came!!! with her husband! Not only that we had 3 investigators come to church and 2 less actives that we have been working with. They came! they got to feel the spirt. I have never been that happy! The ward jsut took them all in and they sat everywhere. and it was so great! during the sacrament I was just so happy I love all the people in our ward so much and all our investigators and I am so blessed to know all of them! I have never felt this kind of love before.
Then we found out that our zone leader got sent home.. We had a meeting and some bad stuff was going on. It makes me so sad... He helped me a lot in our zone meeting and stuff when I was having a hard time adjusting at first. its been a rough day for the zone today. However, it has made me reflect on the last 3 months. is there a limit to what I will give the lord? I am so thankful I am here. My mission means everything to me. I love it. I love these people even though its hard, we get rejected, horrible things happen that are out of our control but I am here to help people make covenants . To help bind them to heaven once more. To help them start their journy home. where they can kneel at the masters feet. I know that he came, I know that he is the Messiah. He lives and I will not deny it.
haha man this week has for sure been a bi polar week! Im positive that this email if full of grammer and spelling mistakes as usual but lets be honest im just not in the mood of fixing them=) it will take too much effort =) I love Sister Straatman. Im super worried about Transfers. I will know by Sunday where I am going. I will go whever he wants me to go.
Sorry folks nothing too funny happend this week! but just know that i sure love the heak out of all of you!

El Happy El New Year!‏

Dear Family and Friends!=)
Happy New year!! I hope all of you ate some great chip dip and set some pretty great goals for the new year even if they only lasted a day=)
OK so first off I would like to apologize to everyone for the way I Have been spelling baptism. I thought for sure  there was a z in there. However much to my dismay it is not spelt baptizem. I'm sure President shakes his head every week when he reads my e-mails. When Sister Straatman realized this she corrected me and we just laughed for a long time. New Years has become my best friend as a missionary! Everyone is all about getting fit for the new year so there are so so many people out!! =) we were able to talk to so many people=) It also became a source of entertinment for Sister Straatman and I. We now play this game called for " for realziez or rezolution." When ever we see someone running or biking we say weather we think they are a for realziez runner or a rezolution runner=) I have to admit sometimes I wish i could be running right along side them. However, California Men need some help with running atire. I saw a whole lot of some people when they were running and yea....
We were able to teach so much this week! It was so great! On tuesday we were able to teach M____and we took sister Feldmen=) Mom I'm so glad you have gotten to know her a little bit! She is my favorite she is so funny and her friend is getting baptized or baptised? IM not sure how to spell that one. and that night we were able to teach S____! S____ is a new investigator that we picked up on tuesday. She is so great! I love her so much the spirt was definantly there during her lesson and I am so excited to keep teaching her. That was the best news years night I have ever had. Wednesday was amazing. We were able to do a lot of less active work. I love less active work. we had a cool story. So we had an appointment to go see someone and when we got there they said they couldnt meet with us anymore, so we were going to go walk this area. before we did we prayed... we both knew that we couldnt walk that area then the though came to my mind go see sisterP_____. Sister p_____ is an inactive lady in our ward who we ahve tried to see several times but she is pro at avoiding us. So we went to see her and.... we got in! We visited with her for a long time and she just cried and said she had prayed that God would show her what she needed to do with her life and then all fo sudden there was a knock at her door and there we were=) we are starting to teach her again=) We also got into 2 other inactives that have been IMPOSSIBLE to go see becasue they were also pro at avoiding us. all of them said they were so glad we came. Then came Chuck.....=) Chuck is so great. Chuck is an 74 year old man who rides his bike everywhere. we have been able to see him a talk to him a little bit here and there. Well we saw him in a dounut shop.. and we went in and sat down at his table and started talking to him, He knows what we do who we are and a lot about missionaries. I then asked him, "chuck Let us teach you," to which he replies " no" and then I said  " Why not?" He then sat there and and then said I dont know. WEll we taught him the message of the restoration right there=) I told him it was only a matter of time=) Then the Elders saw him and they taught him too =) we will get chuck =) This is what the lord wants for him!
On Friday we got to teach a lady, We have been working with her and she has been meeting with missionarys for years. Well this lesson was rough. Her husband  wanted to feed us before before the lesson. We walked in and Taylor Swift was blasting through the house, He knew that we liked taylor swift and thought it would be great. We tried to explain that we cant listen to that but he insisted and wouldnt hear it. So we sat there eating delcious tacos while taylor swift blasted through the house. I went From secretly loving it to calling myself to repentance and feeling so bad then when a knew song would come on getting supper ecited and secrety loving it to feeling super bad agian. I t was a vicious cycle. My two cat theroy was also set in stone that day.... thats all I am going to say about that. Sunday was the best day of all. we were sitting there and one of less actives we visited who hasnt been in years came walking through teh doors!!!!!!!! I was so so excited I gave her the biggest hug ever then she kissed my cheek and I made it super akward. Oh man I am going to be so weird when I get home. But she came to church!!  and we two of our investigators were there!!!!=) Testimony meetings always make me nervous but it was so great!
This week I have really gained a much deeper appreciation for prayer. I have prayed more this week than any other time in my life. I've been pretty sick dang sick this week and the lord has carried me . I have so much father to go to become such a better person and missionary. I was reading Moshia 28:3 and i realized how far I have to go. I am so thankful for the atonment and the plan of Salvation! we have something so important for everyone to hear. I love these people so much! Ihave been studying a lot about patience and I have come to realize that it is more than not outwardly showing your frustration or anxiousness but that it is allining your will with Gods will. or in other words having a repent attitute. Its so funny how my perception of time has changed on my mission. I am so Happy and blessed to be a missionary! Everything I am or ever will become is only becasue of the lord, with out him I am truly am nothing, of that i am sure. However, I matter to him. and so do all of you, please never forget that. He loves you and is waiting for you=)
                                                love you all!

p.s. Eating tons of Mangos= not a good idea

Sorry I accidentally pushed send!

Anyways.... How was everyone Christmas!!!?? It was so great to see all of you!!! I loved it!! I'm so glad you all had a great day and that my letters finally got there=) Also I am so so so excited for Ben and Mckayla!!!! I expect you to do some good old classic conditioning with this baby. Whenever you say my name or have a picture of me around it you better feed it something awesome so that it loves me! notice I say it... I am excited to see what it will be=) I am also so excited/sad that Nicole and Jaron are moving to Germany for 4 years. Ok the only reason im happy is because we are going to come see you. =)

Christmas here was great. As much as I loved to see all of you I have to say that my favorite part of Christmas was going to see B_______, B_______ is an older lady in our ward who is Less Active, She was completely alone on Christmas and had no one. So we went and listened to her tell us storeis from her childhood and we sang Christmas songs with her. Before we left she just told us how much she loved us and how we truly made her christmas. It was so special to me. We also went and took cards to the people we are teaching and tried to talk to a few people but finding wasn't very successful. I was so blessed to spend Christmas teaching people. I willl never forget this Christmas. =)

I have developed a theory out here on my mission about people and cats...You can have 2 cats per house that's the limit and on special occasions you can extend that to 3. However, once you start going over that you may have a problem... im just saying =) This week I met a lady who has at least 20 glamour shots of her cats up on her walls.... she had 4 cats. People lets keep it safe and have no more thatn 2.....=) thats all I have to say about that.

This week we were able to get to know the A______ in our ward. They are an awesome younger couple who have two little boys under the age of 2. they all slept in a tent in their backyard on Christmas=)  Well they both severed missions. She served in New York and he served in Paris France. They are so great! they hold weekly planning together every week. She was telling us how every single day she sees a blessing for her family and her marriage because she served a mission. It was just so nice to talk to her.

The work this week has been slow still. However, we were finally able to meet with T___ again!! She is so amazing. I am really trying to learn to teach with simplicity. We are teaching a lady named B_____ and I cant get her out of my head/heart. I dream about her I study for her. She knows this is true. I know it and she knows it somethings is just holding her back. I cant wait for the holidays to be over so people will be home again =)

Sorry this lesson is going to be super short. Elder Richards of the seventy called our mission together this yesterday for a surprise mission conference this morning and it was amazing.!! I cant even tell you how much I learned and how excited I am about the work. Ben accused me of being too preachy in my e mails so I will just end with this. This time of year we always get the cute christmas cards  with newsletters about what happened that year. Well I want you to think about the Newsletter you would write to your Heavenly Father and what things you would be happy to tell him about 2013 and what you wish you could tell him and then make sure you can tell him that in 2014. I love all of you so much and I love the people here so much, yes even those with more than 3 cats.... There are days that are so hard but I love it and it is making me a better person 1 peter 4:12-13. love you all sorry i had no time this week =)

love ya,
sister webb

p.s. Tavan is getting married!!!!???? congrats tata
