Beautiful Skies of Casas Grandes

I really can´t believe that I am here writing already; this week flew by like none other!  It is hard to believe that I have been out for almost 3 months now!  WOW!  What a great experience and just so you know, I am SOOOO happy!  Just so we get that straight, and you don´t have to worry about your little baby ;) haha  This week was really great, and we had a lot of great experiences teaching our investigators and watching the spirit work inside of them.  It is so UNBELIEVABLE the affect truth has on the lives of others. 

This week we had stake conference on Saturday night and Sunday in Dublan!  All of the missionaries got together during this week and practiced a few songs that we were asked to perform in the conference.  I had the wonderful opportunity of leading the choir and helping with all of the practices!  (You´ll have to tell Tami that she was my example of teaching ;) ) haha  I wish I could explain how grateful I am that I was ENCOURAGED ;) to take piano lessons, and also voice!  That has been one of the biggest ways I feel like I have been able to bless the lives of the people in Mexico!  The spirit speaks through music; I know that with all of my heart!!!!  The conference was all about the work of salvation and so it just makes sense that all of the missionaries were asked to participate!  It actually was a broadcast from Salt Lake for all of the stakes in northern Mexico!!!!  Elder Robert D. Hales and D. Todd Christopherson and Craig Christenson of the 70’s spoke, and it felt like general conference!!!  It was so great and the spirit was so strong!  This work is moving along just like the Lord has planned and it is so incredible to be a part of  it (I know I say that every week) but it is true!!!!  There is actually an English ward in our stake, so I got to listen to a few of the talks in English!!  It was weird to be honest... but really good :) 

We had a really great experience with one of our investigators this week, her name is Vanessa and she reminds me of myself a little bit.  Her brother is a member and she always has thought the church was interesting but never really wanted to put effort into finding out if it was true or not.  But now is the time and she is progressing and learning and growing and wow what a change!  I had the opportunity this week to take lead in a lot of the lessons, and the particular lesson we taught her was about prophets and the need for a restoration!  And as I spoke and taught in the silly ways that help me remember with pictures and crazy examples, the Lord witnessed to me that I, MEGAN ANN SUTTON, was sent here for a reason - to help others for being me!  Sure, during this experience I will change and grow and become better, but the Lord called me and will help me bless others with the talents that I have :)

OH before I forget!!!!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO EVERYONE WHO ALREADY HAD ONE IN JANUARY!!!!  I forgot.... namely.... Lana!!!  Kiela!!!  Aunt Cheri Seashell!!!  and next week DADDY!!  - if I forget.... ;) hahahaha

Also, I hear you are talking to some members in my ward using facebook!  No fair; I want to talk to you ;) hahaha only kidding!!!! 

Also, I just wanted you to know how beautiful the sky here in Casas Grandes is!!!  I have never seen a more beautiful night sky in my whole life.  Every single night when we are exhausted and feel like we can´t go on, I look up at the stars and think I can do this.  God sent me here!!!!  Tell Emma she would be proud of me for all the constellations I remember!!!  But really!!!  It is soooooo beautiful!!!!

I hope you have an incredible week and enjoy the blessing of the gospel we have in our lives!  Live your testimony!  Let the light shine in you!  The Lord wants to bless you in everything and in every way!  Sé que El vive y el es nuestro Salvador! Te amo MUCHISIMO!!!!!

Su Hermana
