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!

Round 3 -- Yonkers!!
Dear family and friends,
Transfers are this Wednesday! Sister Baker is leaving and I am staying in Yonkers with Sister Hansen. Which also means I am driving for the first time in 7 months. In New York. Where blinkers and lanes are optional and turn lanes don't exist. Yaaaaay.
But Sandra, Kelvyn, and Andrew's baptism was awesome! I love that family! Andrew (age 9) got out of the font and said "Wow! That was fun!"
Also, we visited a family who told us that unicorns and fairies really exist here in an alternate universe and that because our mitochondria produce energy (which light is a form of) we need to feed our body with light because our bodies are light. Which is the reason why we need the gospel in our lives. Also, the 6th commandment applies to animals and plants as well as humans. Oh the things we learn from our members... And that was all in Spanish!
I got a blessing from the elders yesterday to help me with taking over the area and it was awesome! God sends us places for us a reason and He will help us do the things he sent us here to do. So here we go...
