This week was hard, missionary work is hard work, but that happens sometimes, we´ve been keeping our spirits up and moving forward, despite the hard week and feeling like no progress we have been keeping our spirits up and have found many of new investigators and we are excited to continue teaching them.
We certainly saw a change, we started to actually tell the investigators how serious we are, that we are here to help them be baptized in the true church of Jesus Christ and that we may joke sometimes and have fun sometimes but our purpose is to help them learn the truth and if they don´t want to listen or act then we need to switch our priority to others that are ready to hear the word of God. We started doing this to our older investigators and the spirit in the lessons have really changed and has gotten stronger. we have been able to have several powerful lessons and we hope to have many people come to the General Conference this coming weekend.
Just think, we do this General Conference only twice a year and we get to hear from the mouths of Prophets and Apostles of Jesus Christ, the people in the Old Testament traveled very, very large distances to listen to the Prophets and to Jesus. What comes to mind is the story of Naamaan the leper, he went a large distance to hear to words of the prophets to be cured of his leprosy and because of his faith and action he was healed. In these days we don´t have to walk or travel nearly as far two times a year to hear directly from the Lord it would be a very large waste to let this opprotunity pass. Invite others so they can recieve answer to the deep questions of their souls even if they don´t realize yet that they have such questions.
I love you all, I got three letters from my Mom, three from Grandma Mary and one from Grandma North. I very much enjoyed the little baby me that Grandma Mary sent. I keep you all in my prayers.
