Oregon Salem Mission Office
700 Deborah Rd Suite 260
Newberg, Oregon 97132
Aloha!!! Family and Friends!
  It was another great week in part of Gods garden of Forest Grove Oregon! Last monday we had a zone pday and played sports at the stake center it was fun i was sore and probably should start working out more it was super fun though im actually really good at indoor soccer haha not really but i did suprise myself a couple times with some skills that came out of nowhere! 
On tuesday we had sister conference in salem and had to be there by 10 and in the series of unfortunate events that our alarm did not go off we woke up at 7:45...and so we rushed and got ready and were meeting some sisters to carpool down there and the members that were driving them down from the coast had car troubles and sis sigmon gave them her home (colorado) address to get to sis rices home that we live in haha and needless to say we were out of it! And to add to the craziness Sis Rices daughter and son and daughter in law were staying there this past week to paint the hall bathroom and sis rices bathroom which looks awesome. They were so loud and funny it was very entertaining we also got some service hrs in by helping them. It was fun and always therapeutic for me to do some actual physically hard labor! Anyways back to sis Conference.. We heard from our Pres and his wife and from our sister training leaders and it was truly inspired from God. And i know that it was meant for a lot of sisters to hear... mostly on being obedient.. Yes sisters struggle too and a lot of sisters that i looked up to weren't doing their best and expressed to me that they were going to do better and that being even slightly disobedient is not worth it. We got to ride on a ferry on the way home. It was super rad. We almost didn't because my comp was scared to go with the mission car but that was where the gps was taking us haha #missonadventures. 

When we were going across i yelled and put my hands up like it was some kind of ride and if you have ever been on a ferry they go 2mph so i was being a dork. take it or leave it. Then we got to our dinner that night and explained about our alarm not going off and then all the sudden to our surprise the alarm goes off at 6pm sharp and so you can figure that one out it was pretty darn funny, luckily it was with one of our ward missionaries! (we love her and get awesome recipes from her) Wednesday we were pretty busy and had a lesson with Jon and our district leader and they will be teaching him until he gets baptized and we also ran into a recent convert while tracting and walked home with her from her bus stop. i haven't really told you all about Gricel and Sara. They were baptized like right before i got here so we work with them some and i love them! We had a lesson with sara about self worth and the atonement and watched the "reclaims" mormon message! It was good. Then we had a lesson with Jonas. he is a 10 yr old boy who is a member and his dad had member records removed but they let us come teach him and he understands that it is still important and it was cool we did a lesson on the Holy Ghost and made a maze in front of their house from stuff out of their garage including a huge handmade coke bottle haha and also while his dad was outside making a little play car to drive in, it was cool. Then we also had a lesson with Brian and jan they have lived in forest grove since the beginning of time and are less active but we are teaching them the lessons and they are really sweet and fun to talk to! Things are going great..We had our lesson last night with the brothers and we talked about faith and how to believe in the book of mormon or the bible. And also taught where we were before this or where we go after this life, a lot of it has to do with FAITH we were really honest with each other cause we are friends and thats what friends do but they are just not ready at this time so we explained that we would like to not meet with them as often cause they have Christ in their lives and there are people who do not and that our purpose is to find those people and help bring them closer. And they completely hopefully the spirit will work on them while we don't meet as often, i just really stinks cause we are all friends and really do love em! It was a really good conversation though and there was no contention just understanding and as we drove away we felt really good about everything that was said cause the spirit was still there as we were being honest with each other! One of them said something that was interesting though and that was that it made him so angry why we both believe in Christ and why satan puts a barrier up..and we didn't really know what to say to that but we agreed and it is just sweet cause they totally respect our belief and say that they believe that we believe in the book of mormon and the things that are taught. They just have some issues but still agree to try and make it to church next week! I love being a missionary and being a rescuer and cant wait to do it more and more, remember as missionaries and members we are in this together and i invite you all to live your lives as examples of Christ always so that people question what makes you so happy and what makes you keep going in this often sad but beautiful world, thats the best and easiest way of how to be a missionary. I love the Gospel..there is a quote i saw in an ensign i cant remember who said it but it was one of the apostles and it goes " It's not so much what we believe, but what we do because we believe that makes mormons interesting" there is so much more that happened this week that i wish i could talk about but all i can say is the Lords hand is in everything.

Love Always and Forever Sister Heywood!

Funny moment- Earlier this weeek its was like pouring and there was a guy outside mowing his lawn and had headset/headphones on and it was the funniest thing ive ever seen...well idk if i mentioned before ever but Oregon is known for its weirdness and let me tell you there are too many funny things we see. Oh also a guy who walks around in a Kilt and then the second time we saw him he had bagpipes...its fine.

Hey Friends and Family!
That i love so dearly! i feel like i say the same thing every week but its true i really do love anyone who's reading this cause it means you love me...right?!...hopefully;) This week has been a good one and again its going by too fast, it is beyond me! I got a haircut this week and got like 3 inches off i think it was needed it had been awhile! Okay and it just hit me that all my friends are having babies or had and its like a baby boom in Az..whats new? right! Oh i love it i cant wait to get home and see them but i can if that makes sense! I love it here and the people we are working with..with all my heart!
Okay so after much confusion Jon went back and forth with where he is wanting to live so he was going to passed to the elders sadly but now that is not the case he loves it here and forest grove so much he is trying his best to find a place here cause he loves the people he loves the ward and friends he has made! His baptism has been pushed back a week cause a lot is going on this saturday like ward day of service, child of record baptisms and the dance festival kick off! We went to the temple tuesday and it was so good to be there and Jon loved it the Sister missionaries in the visitors center are angels. The one that was with us has been out as long as me! The temple and V.C. bring me so much happiness and Jon didnt want to leave we were all just soaking it all really do forget about all your cares and worries, so much peace on the temple grounds and we are so blessed we are able to use it for our friends!
We had our lesson with the Sweeney's they are the ones who have been coming to church a few times now and they are awesome they have a cute little boy and are friends with a lot of the members. We talked mostly about the book of mormon which was awesome cause they have already started reading it! We are excited to meet with them again this week and they are excited also! They LOVE how family oriented we are and how different people from the congregation get up to give talks or share testimonies! I struggled to know my purpose before meeting with them cause they have been so awesomely fellowshipped by the members of the ward for so long, but i learned it while sitting in there teaching and listening to them. i love learning especially when i need to learn and be humbled which Sister heywood needs most of the time. haha.
We had our lesson with the "brothers" thats what we call them cause they are! You will be glad to know that it went so much better than last week. The spirit was more present and we had another member come with us and i testify that members are so vital in the Lords work. I have learned that we the missionaries dont need to do it alone cause sometimes we feel we can but its not easy. The real teacher is the spirit and if that is not present then nothing is being taught. It is so important so i ask all who are reading this to join in on the Lords work and be part of the hastening of it cause your knowledge and testimony of the Gospel need to be heard! As members and missionaries we are in this together and "if ye are not one ye are not mine" found in D&C 38:27 I love you all and pray for you daily and hope that you all have a good week! I love the work.

 Love always and Forever Sister Heywood!

Hola! Family and Friends!

  Time out here is quite interesting and goes by really fast! Like it blows my mind. This week has not been the easiest..not going to lie, but I will be ok..I'm a Heywood and am blessed with so much and miracles still happen even if Sister Heywood is being a poopy head. The work goes on with or without me and I want to be a part of I am with it!
We are still teaching our good friend Jon, great guy. He is just so receptive to the Gospel and a very humble guy, might be moving to Hillsboro soon and for the time being, the collins family has kindly taken him in till that happens and has been helping answer questions and help him search for a home and other great things. His date to be baptized is coming up so we have a lot to go over this next couple weeks which will be exciting! I love to teach, im not perfect at it but the Gospel is and i try my best.

So we have this couple i dont know if ive mentioned them before but their names are John and Nevada they have a little boy named Liam..and they are so cute! They have been coming to church the past 3 weeks and Nevada comes to the relief society activities and they went to the ward camp out, john plays bball at the stake center with the men and are about the same age as the most of the optometry students here and so they are friends with all of them and get invited to everything basically, like a barbeque they had in the park they invited us to and they were there! They have obviously been interested in the church and are pretty much members ;) haha well finally the members that we love that were going to ask them to take the lesson did and we are meeting with them this excited!!! I just love them and they dont even know it..kinda creepy huh? haha

This past week school started for forest grove high and so we went to support rachel the girl i talked about a few emails ago and she sang the national anthem at their back to school assembly! Their hs is like out of a movie and was huge, their gym was 2 story! We saw a lot of kids from the ward and saw this girl hayley who we had talked to in the goodwill store, like a few days before that, when we had been helping jon find clothes for church and she had been asking us questions about modesty and is a super sweet girl!

We had a district meeting friday morn and have a whole new district cause of transfers! They are all awesome missionaries! We have a senior couple who meets with us Elder and sister Scott and they have been out maybe like 3 weeks..we love them haha! She was an arts teacher or something so she was really theatrical and explaining to us the frustration she was having being a missionary sometimes..and we let them know they are not alone and it was just a sweet moment to let them know that every missionary feels this way and i could tell they really appreciated it! I wish you could just meet them! And its not that all missionaries have felt like they're wasting time or frustrated and cant find someone to talk to about the Gospel but that Christ has been there before and He knows exactly how we are feeling. He rejoices when we are happy and is sad when we feel sad. "He has been there before" just like the poem says that the harpers sent me!

So i know i have talked about the seventh day brothers...Daniel, Emmanuel and Louis oh my goodness do they know their bible they can run circles around us with scripture. We met with them last night, it had been a couple weeks and last time we went first reading out of the book of mormon 3 nephi 11 and they really loved it and so we told them they could go first reading out of the bible whatever they wanted to share with us and of course daniel picked daniel and so basically they took up most of the time but as they did it, we compared it to the book of mormon so we could help them see more truth.They have been reading the book of mormon and say they are searching for the truth soooooo im trying to be patient, its really hard but we love meeting with them, last night i was super angry....i know i know..i should have not been but it was mostly on what direction to go with them! So i just keep reminding myself about brigham young and how he took two years to read the book and convert to the church. But sis sigmon and i will come back to see them be baptized if it doesnt happen while we are here and slap them upside of the head with a book of mormon or bible we cant decide ;) We will continue to plan and teach with the spirit cause it is vital!

Well sorry this is shorter and i dont have very good punctuation but i think its more fun that way! haha I hope you all are doing good! and have a great week!

 Love always and forever Sister Heywood! {peace and blessings}

 p.s. i had one of those spiritual highs this week and the moment was so clear where i was just like...ugh the book of mormon is the word of God and because of this, Joseph Smith is true and Thomas Monson too! i cant explain it but ya know what i mean!

 p.s. we are having dinner tomorrow night with the madsens the dad (roman Madsen) is/was really good friends with Sheldon and i know his sister marissa anyway its just a really small world.

 p.s. we are going to the visitors center tomorrow with jon and a member who is driving us! So excited!

Family and friends! 

Im really excited right now to tell you I've made it through my first transfer! Yay! The time that Pres. Hinckley was considering going home and his dad wrote him and said "forget yourself and go to work". I think about him when times are challenging. Brings me comfort to keep pushing along knowing he went through similar things and i find it easier when I'm going through times of trial by serving others instead of saying "woe is me" serving others truly brings out the best in everyone cause you're not so focused on yourself. That's something I've seen of myself this week. 

Sis Sigmon and I are the only ones to stay the same in the Forest Grove district. all other companionships have changed, alot of the elders had extended six weeks which is pretty cool, Sis Reeder also got transferred which is sad cause i love her. Her comp sis blanchard who came out with me has a new comp sis Sorensen. she is a visa waiter for Argentina and has been out here for one transfer also, so they are basically training each other..It's  pretty awesome with all these 75,000 missionaries out, what they are doing with all of them. Being apart of it is the best feeling ever. I have the chance of training next transfer (six weeks) and thats a whole other challenge in and of itself but i will do my best haha. But I'm glad to be staying here because we are seeing so many miracles in this area Sis Sigmon and i get told quite a bit that we work well together, not to brag or wouldnt be possible without God on our side and us on His, i can tell you that much.

So do ya'll remember Jon? Last week we met with him on wednesday at the church pavilion which is this ramada area outside the stake center and we brought our friend jessica from the ward who is leaving on her mission to Phoenix Az spanish speaking in about a month, so we take her to lessons with us! (going on mini missions? do this more..i wish i did) We had an awesome lesson on the restoration and he was really receptive to everything. Then we were also able to give him a tour of the church, which was my first experience and it was so sweet. he had a "funny" feeling in the chapel and that funny feeling was the spirit cause i felt it and it was so peaceful esp. cause on Sundays it is a family ward so sundays are noisy and thats why i loved singles ward so much! It was awesome. i love teaching and try to be better at it each time. im not perfect though, wish i could be..oh well! So then we invited him to come to church the next sunday. before that happened, saturday we were able through the bishop to help him buy slacks, tie and a white button down shirt for church which was so much fun and then after we just sat outside and answered his questions he had about missions and how he was thinking about serving and we answered questions about gods plan for him and how he didnt know why he was here in fg, oregon, and i told him "i know why whether it was by us or some other missionaries he was supposed to find the Gospel of Jesus Christ and that everything happens for a reason" i testify of it! He is golden ya'll and at the end he said so my BIG question is "who do i talk to, to set up my baptism?" umm hellooo us!? haha it was fun we are good friends with him and took a picture cause we were happy about his decsion! The Lord works in mysterious ways, k?! he came sunday and we also had a lesson with him right before church started on Gods plan for him cause that was his big question and so we guessed it, the plan of happiness! He loved it and loved church, i felt really prompted to ask why he wanted to get baptized also cause i was curious of how he would respond and I'm telling you it was the most perfect answer, I was not expecting to hear it. He has an interesting life/situation he grew up in foster care and has been all over, he has three college degrees under the age of 20, graduated H.S. at 16, and is over qualified for a lot of jobs. right now he recently has been looking for a job and got one at Taco bell but needs more to get a roof over his head and has been working with whats hes got, i dont want to say too much but things are looking up for him and he is seriously one of the happiest kids you will ever meet esp. with his situation, i will have to tell you about it one day! I know that we have been instruments in the Lords hands, in us being led to jon and him to us, so that he may come closer to Christ and enjoy the blessings that the Gospel brings each of us. (We also taught primary that day)

We have a lot of miracles coming and families we are and will be working with which is so exciting! This past Friday we had our last district meeting and Sis Sigmon and I taught the lesson on "teaching simply and with the spirit" which was perfect cause we had been applying that to our own teaching a lot. And my father in me had to show a mormon message haha they are really good tools! I LOVE them...would watch them all day if i could but ya know kinda busy! It was the "I am a child of God " message and we explained how everyone that we are working with NEEDS to know this and we need to tell them cause it is so important and just like my testimony that i bore on sunday that none of this would be possible if Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ didn't love us...we wouldnt be here, we wouldn't have families or future ones, He wouldnt have sent his only begotten Son, He wouldnt have restored the fulness of His Gospel back to the earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith and a lot of other important things that pertain to our eternal happiness. He did this all because He loves YOU.

 -Sister Heywood!

p.s. along with everything I'm learning out here..I'm learning that visiting teaching and home teaching is so very important please do yours and stop with the really is so sad. Realize that you might be their only friend and connection to the church and they need you! John 14:15 "if ye love me" Do you love Christ?
Last Pday- Watched "other side of heaven" with the spanish sisters at the stake center pushed the comfy couch and chairs into a room and the flat screen tv, popped popcorn! and acted like goofs together. Yesterdays pday we hung out with the collins family who we love and they take care of us and make delicious food! haha Sister Collins made us breakfast, came with us to do our grocery shopping and buy boots for winter and helped us find coupons for them, she fixed a skirt for me and so much more, We love their family! Home away from home a little bit! :) They have two awesome kids Jake(16) and Leah (6)

Hey Hey Hey!
   How’s it going family and friends?! Thank you to all the people who have emailed and wrote me, ya'll are my best friends now. If you wanna be my best friend list you know what you gotta do! ;) So another great week here in Forest Grove Oregon which p.s. is the northern most part of the mission idk if i ever mentioned that? Hey guess what I’m from Mesa, AZ and I’m freezing my buns off they think it’s hot here when its in the 90's..HA! I’m like its perfect!!! so basically I’m cold all the time unless we have been tracting and the suns out and there’s no breeze which is less likely..also everyone gets annoyed when it gets overcast or rainy here but i LOVE it! It brings me automatic happiness! Like my mood instantly changes and if I’m already doing good i get a little crazy cause i love rain maybe that’s why i was sent here to bring my sunshine and smile when everything is gloomy over here, that’s what i wrote in my acceptance letter to the Prophet "I’m bringing the sunshine to Oregon" I was also sent here for many reasons that are hard to explain every day and week something happens where it is reconfirmed to me whether it’s a conversation or a referral..which yes i agree with my good friend Elder Boren when he talk about referrals and that members are so part of the Lords work and mesa is a little different esp. being here and seeing the difference between what it’s like when the members are involved in missionary fun and when there not and so it truly has been a miracle before i got to this area they had started a forty day fast where each family member picks a day to fast for missionary work in there ward and let me tell you it’s working we have seen a lot of miracles come from it!
   About 3 weeks ago we were tracting and knocked on a door and Tammi answered and her family had just gotten home from vacation and there house was flooded..she said "I’m sorry i don’t mean to be rude but I’m about to cry my house is flooding" we offered to help but she said that she already called and help was on the way she was really nice!! We ended up going back to check on their family some days later and she updated us on everything and that they would be living in an apt. for 5-6 months and so we offered again to help pack up but again declined and said she was almost done again so nice! but doesn’t except help very well which we later learned as we were driving away from ward coordination this past Wednesday and got a text from our zone leaders saying they had a referral for us and that a member had given them the name tammi and that they are the "flooded house family" (side note- when I’m sitting in any type of meeting or in personal or comp study i will write down anyone that comes to mind and it happens a lot...this family kept coming to my mind and i would write down "flooded house family") They have last names haha we just didn’t have it yet! Anyway this member and her family are really good friends with them and Tammi told her that she felt like...."god sent us".....ummm ok we were screaming and freaking out..if you could imagine. haha anyway so we have been in contact with them she has been reading the Book of Mormon (best book ever) and has had a lot of member friends!
  Friday we went to lunch with the Spanish sisters..Sis Reeder and Sis Blanchard ughhh love them! i go up to order and the guy taking my order Jon says "oh hey I’ve seen guys with tags on like that!" ...oh really?! yaa were missionaries for our church and we teach people more about it if they have questions and stuff like that is this something you’d be interested in?! "well ya I’ve actually been looking for a church to go to and i live in forest grove and have already graduated from culinary school" (don’t ask me why he works at Mickey D's) He wants to open his own restaurant and he was awesome and i got his info and we are meeting with him this wed.! ...walked back to where my comp and everyone was sitting and was all hey ya'll we have a new friend (investigator) haha just like that! It was awesome and I’m pretty sure Heavenly Father knows me cause i was wanting something like that to happen and it did but didn’t see it coming brought much happiness to my soul! I can’t wait to bring happiness to his!
 With our ward mission leader Bro. Nelson he helps us set up appt. with members so we are able to have lessons and practice and last night we had the Schneider’s great family while we were teaching the restoration we got to part about the book of Mormon so towards the end and not knowing we asked the daughter who is 17 what the book of Mormon means to her and the room got kind of silent and her mom said you can be honest and she told us that she doesn’t believe in it or anything..soo basically the room was silent for a second and i bore my testimony which felt like a long time but i was trying to get through to her and i was straight up with her and so did Sis Sigmon after we were done..we walked outside and talked to her mom for a second as she was taking her son somewhere and she gave us a little more detail and said "idk what we’ve done wrong" and i told her it wasn’t her fault and so we decided to talk to rachel some more and knocked on the door again and sat down on her front porch and had a little heart to heart girlfriend to girlfriend...tried to have her open up a little more and she did but i got on her level and said guess what i freaking wouldn’t be out here if it wasn’t true I’m sorry but i wouldn’t and that goes for anyone reading this that is lacking a little faith cause im pretty sure that LIFE would be a lot harder without the Gospel of Jesus Christ and esp. fighting it when you know it’s true, it’s not something you can deny after you have felt and known that it least i won’t. This girl says she has put the promise to the test that Moroni gives and she basically has given up after not getting an answer and i can’t tell you everything i told her because it’s just what i feel like saying in the moment but that she hasn’t given up and that this a decision she will need to make on her own not from the influence of her boyfriend or her family...but that it is her choice and God cares about her and He will answer her if she has the faith! We told her that we are here for her if she wants to talk and not just about the church..anything...hey cause you know what i need friends too!
  Oh i also wanted to tell you about last Mondays pday we made pillowcases #whatupachievmentdays and we were with the Niakoni sisters(coast sisters) ones from Hawaii Sister Purcell and Sister Redd! and Spanish sisters again we are so blessed to have sisters so close we then went to sonic ahh and then went bowling ohh my goodness so fun! we just laugh the whole time and oh we have to stay in proselyting clothes #whatupbowlinginprosclothes it was cute, kinda like the 50's p.s. we were the only ones in there! and then with all of us had a great missionary experience with the guy working there and he was telling us all how his little kids have been asking him questions church related and he didn’t know what direction to go so we gave him the elders info cause thats where he lived it honestly wasn’t overbearing even with six sisters standing in front of him talking about the church we all said a little bit! He was a sweet guy! I honestly feel like a super hero at times getting out of the car and walking places and eso. when we are going to help someone haha kinda nerdy! gotta go times up love yall
 Love Sister Heywood  
Dear Family and Friends


    Hello Hello! we were not able to email till today cause they had a software update something or other so the library was closed monday! As long as i get to email this week, im good haha It has been another great week! It is hard to be out here and when great things are happening i just want to call ya'll up (esp. my dad) and tell you about the work cause i hate emailing and it stresses me out! haha So you might not get all the details...sorry bout it! Just know im working hard and things are happening!


   Yesterday we had mission tour which only happens once a year and we had the privilege to have Elder Richards and his wife of the seventy come and speak to us along with our great mission president and wife, they hit us across the face with the spirit and learned a lot of simple truths that i think everyone was needing to hear. We then had lunch after for sitting for 4 hours on our behinds and it was great the members are so loving when they feed us at these misson conferences. Sis reeder who is in my district from texas...just think of my favorite red head Sydney (heywood) Kent and thats i feel at home when we get together haha cause we laugh the whole time like paige and i would or us and the cousins! So long story short she was like alright wheres the dessert cause basically as a missionary no one really feeds you without a dessert at the end......and i turn and see the little boy that was there assisting his mom pass out these double choco chip ice cream sandwhiches and i point and say "there you go sister reeder" it was pretty darn funny and her response was "ask and ye shall recieve" hahaha if your not laughing guess you had to be there! But its fun to laugh and we do that a lot out here, you kind of need to! I love being a missionary and that i have the opportunity to be apart of the Lords work! "missionary fun" :)

   Then we had a sister meeting with Sis richards and Sis samuelian and it is a great power and spirit to be around all these wonderful sisters and the many wonderful people i get to meet, I get to see Sis Paskett from the mtc and she always gives me a hug! She always bends down for us short people and gives a under the arms hug even though shes 6'4" haha i love her! After people were chosen to have a interview. Elder Richards and I were one of them and i felt very blessed to have that opportunity to speak with him he asked me about my family and i started crying and said "sorry i dont know why im crying" he said "i do because you love them"  and we talked about Cody and i cried even more haha but we talked about how it is very special to have someone with disabiltiess in the home because they bring a spirit that is heaven sent! Oh i just love my older brother Cody and miss him a lot! He is my favorite older brother..besides my savior Jesus Christ! I love this Gospel there is no other way and it brings me so much happiness.

 We had our district meeting last friday and talked about opening our mouths and delaring the Gospel of Jesus Christ and we read a lot of scripture out of D&C and there was one i like in particular that i would like to share..its D&C 24:12....alright did you read it?! great. So then one of the elders in our district Elder Walker who by the way has lived in 24 countries in his 18 years..talked about how a trumpet holds the melody and the presence and the sound of it is like the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the "presence" of the unique message we have to share with all around us. That unique message we have is that Joseph Smith did in fact see God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ and we learned many truths through that miraculous event it is the 2nd most important thing that has happened besided Christ taking upon himself the sins of the world so that we are able to return and live again with our Heavenly Father through some important steps we must take into consideration with real intent and continually "endure to the end" and more than that but enjoy to the end! We are able to once a week to get on or and find and study things that will help us with our Friends (D&C 84:77) and it is not something that is mandatory but the church has amazing videos and talks from apostles and prophets to read and that really could be put to great use!! Technology is great! I was able to come across a video about of course missionary work and really loved something that was said by an elder "there is no trial and no hole to deep in anyones heart that cant be mended by the grace of Jesus Christ" Im running out of time but i want you all to know that is so true and i testify of it that he not only took on the sins of the world but the pain and sorrow we all feel there is NOTHING that we cant go to Him with and strive to be perfected through Him.


 -Love always and Forever Sister Heywood
