Hey team! It's been a pretty good week though I don't have a bunch to
say about it. We've had some good lessons this week. We got a good
fellowship per for our investigator George and they turned out to
already be good friends so they have a really good time whenever we go
teach him. George is finally overcoming all of his word of wisdom
problems and he even came to all three hours of church! We couldn't be
more happy for him! He's going to be baptized and we are
looking forward to it.
we had like the longest Zone Conference ever! It went from
and then we had a neat little thing where our Ward mission
leaders and bishops/branch presidents came down and we all had
training from since it takes a while to drive to Springfield
we didn't get back to our area until . We were all asked to
prepare a talk on the atonement so president could randomly choose
people to speak. I had a feeling I was going to be called on so I made
sure mine was good. He had us prepare 20 minute talks and then when he
called on us he asked that we only do 4 minutes of it! So I barley
scratched the surface of what I wanted to talk about. He called three
missionaries up to give talks and no surprise to me I got called on. I
talked briefly about the Enabling Power of the atonement and then got
to bear my testimony. It felt pretty awesome. If you ever get your
hands on a April 2012 Ensign be sure to read Elder Bednar's talk; The
Atonement and the Journey of Mortality. It's so good!
Besides all that not a ton happened. We've been having great lessons
and have been good at getting people on date. We have been trying to
do good finding but we didn't find any new investigators this week.
The 2nd Ward Sisters and Elders keep finding 15-20 new investigators a
week each! We need to step up our game so we don't look like the weak
link in our district. So yeah. Love you all!
