The adventures of me (Sister Shelby Hall) as I teach the people of New York the gospel in the Spanish language. My purpose is to "invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift the Holy Ghost, and enduring the end". I am absolutely thrilled to have this opportunity to serve my Heavenly Father and invite others to come unto Christ by spreading the good news of His gospel!

Dear family and friends,
Okay so this week was amazing!
1. We had comp inventory. The picture below shows how it went.
Okay just kidding Sister Baker had to almost get her appendix out but then it turned out not to be that... I tried not to be excited but the hospital is one of my favorite places ever. I did control myself and didn't steal any medical supplies this time... So we were quarantined most of the week. I've now officially seen every church movie known to man. #siquasisiquatote
2. Investigators are popping out of nowhere! One of them is married to a member and he prayed and knows the church is true because he had a Hispanic tribe of Manasseh dream and he is SUPER excited for baptism. He's from the Bronx and Georgia so imagine him saying "OOHH YEAH" We're also teaching these two little boys, Kelvin and Andrew, who want to get baptized. They're 9 and 11 and they love coming to church and meeting with us. They say the best prayers I've ever heard. Last night we invited the mom to come sit in on our lesson and at the end she started crying and told us that her kids are being such great examples to her and shows she needs this in her life too. #ejemplos4dayz Also, we have another 9-year-old baptism from the Vasquez family. They were super inactive when we got here but now they haven't missed a Sunday in a month and pay for 2 taxis to get their family all the way to church! But they love it and the husband is going to get baptized too! #milagrospasen They're all so adorable and I love them to death!
3. I think my Spanish is getting worse?
4. Sorry about the Facebook event, because of our emergency trip to the hospital we're postponing it til this weekend. We invite you all to participate! Sunday March 30 8pm EST
I love you all! Thanks for your prayers and support!
