Last week I wrote of the difficulty that my
companion and I were having with finding people to teach. This week is a
follow up of last week. Every day for the last week we studied in Preach
my Gospel chapter 9 in personal and companion study. We thought of
things that we needed to work on and how we could improve. We decided
that we would talk to everyone and teach when we find and find when we teach. Meaning that we teach doctrine when we speak to people and that
we teach we find new people to teach. I Know that as we study PMG, the
scriptures and as we pray for Heavenly Father help us have the faith to
do His will in our lives that we will see His hand in our lives. I know
that He is mindful of us and that He loves us. Continue to press forward
with faith in Jesus Christ and we will not fail. This week we were able
to find three new people to teach. I am grateful for the Knowledge of
the gospel and for the Atonement of our Savior Jesus Christ. I love you
all!! I hope that you all have a very Happy Easter!! The Lord will
bless us as continue to press forward with faith.
This week has been a struggle for my
companion and me. We have had a very hard time finding people to teach.
We have both been in the area for a while now and have come to know
people who are interested and people who are not. We decided to ask for
help this week. We were abel to get new ideas on how we can help our
In Preach my Gospel it tells us to have faith that God
is preparing people to hear His gospel. We must have the faith to find
them that "will receive" us.
I know that Jesus Christ is our
Lord and Savior and that he loves us and in mindful of our situations.
As we continually have faith in Him, He will bless us in ways that we
can't imagine. He is waiting to bless us. Having faith helps us to get
through the rough patches in life. I know that as we continually put
our trust in Him that he will lead us to where we need to be at the
right time. I love you all and hope that you have a great week.
This week has gone by so quickly. The
weather has been rainy and sunny. This week we were able to see God's
hand. We picked up an new investigator that asked a lot of great
( March 11) we went to go and see an investigator of us and we planned
to finish teaching the Restoration to him (he asks a lot of questions so
getting through the lessons will take time but that is Ok. We teach
people, not lessons) when we went by to teach him he started asking us
about the Word of Wisdom. As he was reading for the pamphlet he told us
that we basically lives the Word of Wisdom, except he will occasionally
drink coffee. He then told us that as he was making the cup of coffee
that he had in his hand that he got a weird feeling about making it and
thought about it for a while then thought "Mormons don't drink coffee."
He told us this before we started talking to him about the Word of
Wisdom. The Lord's hand is in every aspect of our lives, we only need
to sit back for a minute and look at the things that he has done for us.
I love you all and hope that you have a great week.
Transfers are here
again. My companion and I are staying in our area and staying together. I
am so excited to begin a new transfer. We have an adventure a head of
us and we have lives to touch. I know that God has a plan for each and
every one of us and that he will place people in our live or he will
place us into peoples lives to help them. We are instruments in His
hands to bring to pass His work. He will give us what we need. On Tuesday
we have to opportunity to go to the temple, Sister Tew let us go because
we didn't go the week before. I love going to the temple. I know that
the Temple is the house of the Lord. He will bless us as we attend and
learn more of Him. I love you all and hope that you all have a great week.
