AREA: Lone Mountain
COMPANION: Elder Alison
This has been great, we had quite a bit of progression coming from our
investigators. A girl named Skylar loved Conference so much and
that's what made her want to become a member because her questions
were answered! She had questions about the plan of Salvation and
there were a few talks about the plan of Salvation in the conference
she watched. She went to the conference center with her boyfriend
that is a return missionary from Argentina. She was not so sure about
why she was meeting with us but now she is all in and said she is
reading from the Book of Mormon everyday! The only problem is that
her parents don't support her which is hard for her. She is 24 I
believe so she can chose for herself but we don't want to tear there
family apart. We will most likely set her with a baptismal date this
next lesson we have with her.
We also tight Tommy Bell again and we went back to teaching the
Restoration and it really helped him understand the importance of why
this is the fullness of the gospel and how important the Book of
Mormon is. He asked us what Gospel means be when we say the
Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We went over Faith,
Repentance, Baptism, receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and
enduring to the end. He just leaned back in his chair and smiled big,
he was feeling the spirit as we bared the truth. Really awesome
lesson! After the lesson, he said I'm going to read from the Book of
Mormon every day for 30 mins which is a great goal. I'm looking
forward in seeing him again Wednesday, I wish we could meet more often
but he's always busy. Next lesson we will ask if we can come over
twice a week to help him prepare for baptism. I'm excited!
Also had a lesson with Kenadie and she's 9 and she is getting baptized
the 22nd of April so it's coming up soon. Just have he baptismal
I also texted a girl I taught in my last area and we set her with a
date for baptism but then she moved to Louisiana and that was sad.
But texted her today to see how she is and she got baptized about two
weeks ago so that was really good news! That made my day today!
Also taught our new investigator Francisco and he is a golden
investigator. He came to church Sunday for all 3 hours so that was
awesome. Everything is going great with him. We will most likely set
him with a date next lesson for early May. I'm so pumped for this
next coming month. We have a lot of potential baptisms so it should
be great! Only 2 weeks left of this transfer but I will most likely
stay and get another companion since Elder Alison is going home.
Great week and hope everyone else a good week as well. Always
remember to follow the Prophets teaching because they are direction
from God. The most important to do is to study our scriptures daily
and have a strong relationship with our Heavenly Father by praying
daily. I've seen a huge change in my life doing that and it will help
you so much with even the most complicated problems. I love my Savior
and I know that he lives and has risen and will again.
Love you all and hope you have a good week!
