I am serving the Lord as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, in the Nevada Reno Mission. Follow my blog as I set out on the greatest adventure I could possibly experience at this time in my life!

Happy New Years! 
This week has been kinda crazy! It was good to talk to you on Christmas, I was so happy to see y'all!
We went to the Mission Christmas Party in Reno after skyping and had a blast. Well we partied it up as much as missionaries can. It was fun seeing other missionaries, Sister V------ :) and other missionaries from my last zone.
Most of us from Carson ended up staying in Reno overnight because the roads home were too bad. But we made it safe, no worries :) 
On Thursday Sister G------ and I got a member ride and headed to Tahoe for B--'s baptism! YAY! I had set him for baptism back when I was in Tahoe, I was so happy to see him- how happy he was and his family!
So this upcoming week is TRANSFERS! AH! So, Sister G------ is being shipped out to Elko! SO far away, where it is even colder than it is here! I will be staying here in Carson for at least another 12 weeks. I am TRAINING a new missionary! There is only one new sister missionary coming in, and I feel very inadequate to be training already, but I know that this is what the Lord wants me to do, so I will.  
Yesterday we had a really good day! We contacted a less-active who has a non-member wife and she seems really interested in coming to church! SWEET! So, we are hoping to start teaching her in the near future. And then we went over to G-----'s because she is getting her tonsils out and her dad (less active) really wanted her to get a blessing. So their home teachers gave her the blessing, the best part was seeing how much her dad wanted this for her because he knows that the priesthood power is real! BECAUSE IT IS! I have felt that power in the priesthood blessings I have received since being out here, I have felt my Heavenly Father's love for me as I have listened to the words He says through those priesthood holders. 
I love you all! Thanks for your support!
Sister Goodwin
