Week 6 in Perth


Hey People of Earth!

Wait what? I’m on earth, or am I? For all we know, this is all a strange dream and I’m actually a being that is cryogenically frozen in some crazy planet of space…. maybe? No. Not true. I’m 100% sure that I am an earthling just like you. My siblings may disagree, but it’s fine. Don’t believe them. 🙂

This week seems like it was forever, but also like it didn’t happen…. strange feeling, right? Yeah, it is.

Some highlights of the week:

We have awesome investigators, Kevin and Julie. They love the Gospel and are so prepared. They watch church media and fall asleep listening to the Book of Mormon. A missionary couldn’t ask for better.

Miracle of the week. We have had some good, wholesome, beautiful, sunshine!!!!

Funny story–On Tuesday we were coming home from district meeting in Kirkaldy. We were at the train station and this person sits next to us and we get chatting about what we are doing and they are asking questions about what Mormons are, so we basically teach a lesson on the Restoration. And we were like, what is going on? This is awesome! Then I look over and see on his phone that he has the Book of Mormon app open and he is a member of our church who was totally pulling our leg. Haha. We laughed, then talked a bit more 🙂

Love ya’ll

Scripture I’ve been studying this week: Alma 29  It’s really good 🙂

Week 5 in Perth


It was a good week.

We had a cool miracle this week. One night Sister Smith wasn’t feeling good. We just pressed through it and chapped anyway. We came to a door and the yard was overgrown and unkempt. We saw in the grass a mormon.org card folded in half just thrown there. So, I opened the gate and said, “okay Lord, I’m ready for a miracle!” We chapped the door.  And then this woman opened it. She was pretty rough around the edges and I just held my breath and we introduced ourselves. She said, “Oh my father was Mormon! Come on in!” And we both just looked at each other in shock. We went into the house and she had so many good questions. She is excited to learn and loves modern day revelation. Needless to say, sacrifice brings forth the blessings from heaven! God is good and He will provide as you act in faith.

On Sunday I was praying during sacrament to be given the strength and patience to do what is asked of me here in Perth and then the speakers gave such amazing talks that were exactly what I needed. In that moment, in our little branch meeting, I knew why I was there and I knew even more fully that God is aware of us and He truly wants us to be happy and share that happiness with others.

Love ya’ll!

Easter Miracles

What a week we have had!

So many miracles!

On Friday, this week, we met a woman at Pizza Hut (worker). She lived in Utah and was taught by missionaries there. She is so amazing. This was especially cool because Sister Smith had a huge feeling that morning that we needed to be somewhere specific at 1 pm and we never ever go to Pizza Hut, but we couldn’t decide where to go and just thought Pizza Hut. Then we go and find Liz there and felt that was where we were supposed to be at 1pm. So that was a cool experience. Yesterday at church we had five friends there!!! This is a new record for me on my mission! We had three current investigators and two others that responded to church texts with us! It was an Easter Miracle! Ada, one of our friends that attended church with us, has a baptismal date for April 29th! We are really excited for her. Two of our other friends, Kevin and Julie, were also there. They are really excited about the gospel, but they aren’t married. They have been living together going on four years now, so we are hopefully getting them married soon! Do I see a joint wedding-baptism in the future… maybe!

Then to top it all off with a cherry on top, the Rickers from the Boerne Ward showed up at Church, too! It was so fun to see a familiar face and get some good Texas-sized hugs.

It was just an amazing week and we are looking forward to another amazing week!

Easter is such an amazing time of year. I loved the Mormon message for the “Prince of Peace.” The simple words shared are so awe inspiring.

He was the worlds greatest conqueror, yet He ruled no nations, led no armies, never raised a sword. Took no spoils. His only crown was made of thorns. He won victories, no one else could. He defeated death. He conquered sin and offers peace to all who follow Him. He can calm troubled seas and troubled souls. He can heal broken lives and broken bonds. He can turn water into wine and heartache into hope. He lived, died and lived again, so we will all live again. His resurrection brings us peace, now and forever. He is Jesus Christ, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, the Prince of Peace.

Remember to apply Christ’s example and sacrifice to your life. As we do this we can have peace now and in the world to come. I LOVE our Savior and brother Jesus Christ. Because of Him we can live, we can truly live. This Gospel, this way of life, THIS IS LIVING and it is possible because of Him.

Love ya’ll–Happy Easter!

Week 3 Perth!


It’s been a great week! Yesterday we had a miracle. We got to church and as usual we have been praying to find the elect and for the elect to find us. We were fasting for the elect to find us. So, we are at church greeting people and then this couple comes to the front door, and you can tell they aren’t members of the church, so we take a special interest in them and start talking. Julie and Kevin went to our church about a year ago and they decided that they needed to come back because it is something they want in their life now! So we are really excited to teach them and help them find what they are missing. God is so good.

Something I have been studying this week is like what Elder Rasband said about being a first responder. I loved the story he told about the fireman so much and the promised blessing that if we follow the first promptings of the spirit we will be successful 9xs out of 10. Isn’t that amazing? I loved studying chapter 4 in Preach my Gospel. I invite you to read it and study it. It is so important for us to respond to promptings of the spirit because it is only the times that we don’t when we have regrets. If we are always following the promptings from heaven we will never be wrong!

Lastly, a funny story this week:

This week we had a missionary conference so all the missionaries in the area came together to be taught by our leaders. We got there and were just sitting down in the pew. Then this happens–

Me to Sister Smith: You are too close to me.

AP Elder Tullis (standing in the pew in front of me, looks up in shock): Oh my! I thought you were talking to me!

Me: Yeah Elder you are wayyy too close. Don’t you know it’s inappropriate to stand that close to a Sister?

Elder Tullis (mimics a Texan accent): Oh, I’m a Texan, and you can’t be within ten feet of me. You’ll breath my air.

Ya’ll may not consider this a funny thing, but as a missionary your humor is very different and it was very funny, trust me!


Love Ya’ll!

It’s been one year!!!!

I had a good week. I turned one year as a missionary and we had General Conference!

Highlights of this week:

On Wednesday, we were able to go to a youth center and talk to troubled youth. That was so great to be able to be there with real people who are trying to change their life. We will be able to go back every week.

I was able to celebrate my one year with an American burger. Oh, it was sooooo good!

We have a new friend who wants to be baptized. She is really cool and we have already been able to see the change the gospel has made in her life.

Best of all, Conference!!! I loved it so much, but Elder Choi’s talk was just great! I loved it so much! Remember to look up. I love how he told his missionaries, “when it rains, look up. Open your mouth. Drink it!” I find that this will be very good advice as I’m in Scotland and it rains a lot. If you haven’t been able to watch the conference, then I encourage you to watch it and listen to the Prophet’s voice.

Love ya’ll

Second Week in Perth

This week was good…

Funny story for the week:

We saw this little old lady. She was like a cat lady, but a pigeon lady. She was just walking down the street with a flock of pigeons following her and we were like, what???? She sits down and pours out some bird food and then she was surrounded by like 50 pigeons. It was truly wonderful.

This weekend the weather was really nice, but Sister Smith was sick and soooo that was kinda sad, but we are making it through.

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about pioneers. These people did and sacrificed sooo much so that we can have the Gospel and I’m so grateful for them. I’m also grateful for modern-day people that change their lives so that they can have the joy of the Gospel and share it with others. There are many things that we may sacrifice and change for the Lord, but there is no sacrifice that we can make that we will not be blessed for. The Lord recognizes everything we do. He will always help us recognize His hand in our life.

I know this church is true and I know that God loves you,

Love ya’ll!

First Week in Perth

DSCN1673It was a wonderful week in my new area! I was able to get to know the area and the members. The members here are great and they all have unique characteristics. It’s good! I think I’ll fit in perfectly here 😉

Some highlights this week….

We had some cool finding opportunities. We were led to a city base youth center where troubled youth and young adults go to get on their feet and be in a good environment. We talked to the manager about helping and being present in the base. He is really keen on having us involved and so I’m really excited for that. And we taught an English class… yeah that’s a surprise! Why is Sister Bohman teaching an English class? Not sure exactly how it happened. This guy we stopped asked us, in very broken English, if we teach English. So, we just said, “yeah,” and then the next day we met with him and his family and taught an English class….

Good things are going to happen here and we are excited about it!

Love ya’ll to the moon and back!

So, I’ve moved again! It’s another fresh start. In Dunfermline I was able to heal and get well. And now I feel so much better. I’m ready to fly and smash the rest of my mission! It’s going to rock!

This week was really good. It was the last week for the trio, but we had a ball. We found some cool people and taught a few crazies, but none of that is new if you’re a missionary. You are never sure what is going to end up your way, but you never know and always have to be prepared.

I will miss the members and the people I have met here, but I’m ready for something new and I’ve been granted it in the beautiful area of Perth! My new companion is Sister Smith. She is from Utah and really cool. She is also full of energy, so it’s going to be great!

Sorry this email is so short, but I’m running out of time! I love you all!

Something I’ve been thinking about is Christlike attributes especially love and charity. There is a quote by Van Gogh, “What is done in love is done well.”

So, go and do in love and you will know more of Christ’s love. You will see the light in everyone.

Love ya’ll!

Only one week left of this transfer…What is going to happen to our trio?


It has been a long, but short week. As usual, time as a missionary is very strange. 🙂

Something that we, as a companionship, have been struggling with lately is finding solid investigators.

President Hinckley said, “So many of us look upon missionary work as simply tracting. Everyone who is familiar with this work knows there is a better way. That way is through the members of the church.”

I know as President Hinckley said “missionary work is not simply tracting.” There is a better way! So at a planning session we talked about how we need to help these amazing members do missionary work. Every family has friends that are ready! After having a bit of a discussion, we were able to get some plans going and my companions caught the fire and spirit of it all! It took them a minute but now they get it and it is amazing. If anything in this trio I have helped them understand that it’s not all stopping people in the streets everyday, all day. We have wonderful families that have wonderful friends and that is how families find the Gospel, not by being stopped by missionaries on the street.

We (my companions and I) have been talking a lot about times at home when we were able to help others understand more of what we believe and how amazing that was, but also how many opportunities to spread this good news did we miss? What would we do differently now that we have caught the missionary spirit? This Gospel is so important to my life and I know to many of yours. You love your friends and your friends love you. Share your love of the Gospel with them. I’m sure they are curious to see what makes you sooooo happy! Don’t be afraid. Have courage and be kind–that is all it takes.

I love you all and I love this calling to help people find the Joy of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

It’s been a wild week!

It has been a really good week. A lot has happened, both fortunate and unfortunate. We locked ourselves out of our flat. That was an adventure, but it is all sorted out now. This week we have a few new investigators who are really cool. We are being really blessed with finding cool people here in Dunfermline. We taught this one girl that the Elders met. She texted us and I was able to go on splits with a member to teach her. She is really open minded and she and her family are looking for a new church! We are really excited to see where this goes. We are also working really hard with Craig who is trying to quit smoking. He knows he has to in order to get baptized and he really wants to get baptized so it’s a big motivator for him.

Last night we were chapping and we found this really cool guy who met with missionaries awhile ago. He is really cool. We set up an appointment. Then we went and knocked on his neighbor’s door and we are able to have a little conversation. The neighbor let us in. He was a really peculiar guy and he knows about a lot of stuff. He was one of those people that just takes bits and pieces of what they want and applies it to their life. He was on one about aliens and it was really funny. Last night at the flat afterwards, I was just thinking, never again in my life will I have experiences like this, just going up to some random person’s house and being let in. It is really crazy and I love it. People are great. Always look for the best in people. I love being a missionary. It really helps me feel of God’s love for each of his unique creations. It is really amazing.

Keep on loving.

Keep on praying.

Keep on trying.

He wants us to succeed.

So do it!
