Week 44

AREA: Lone Mountain   
COMPANION: Elder Michaelis 

This week has been pretty good, first off we had transfer calls.  So I
found out me and Elder Michaelis are staying together and I am now the
district leader 😐 (mixed feelings about it) which means I will be
looking after my district and helping them out and going on exchanges
with them.  Also I will be teaching the district every Tuesday each
week for about an hour and a half (District Meeting).  It should be
interesting how everything goes with that?

Everything else in week was good, we heard good news about Francisco!
Our recent convert that got deported is finally in Mexico and he was
sent to Mexico City then somehow got to Cancun Mexico.  We were able
to contact his bishop of the Ward he is in and Francisco ended up
going to church and the bishop is helping him out to have somewhere to
live and help him find work. I'm just glad he is in a safe place and
has a ward that can help him!😁

This last week was a little slower but good, we were able to meet with
Ruby once and that went well,  she definitely has a reading level not
high enough to read the Book of Mormon so she is just reading the Book
of Mormon stories.  She is possibly going to girls camp so that's
pretty cool!  We were also able to find two solid potentials from
tracting who we set up lessons with them to come back.  One of them
wasn't home on Monday night when she said she would be but we will
continue to try her.  Also we street contacted into someone at the
park and she was telling us she has been wanting to go back to church
and getting closer to God but didn't know which church to go to.  So
we got her phone number and address so we could stop by!  Hopefully
these potentials follow through and let us stop by.🤞🏼

We had another good contact with a less active lady who hasn't been to
church since she was 16 and she said she has never had missionaries or
Ward members stop by and she said she would love for us to come teach
her family on Monday so we stopped by and taught the restoration and
they have a daughter who is 12 almost 13 that was very interested in
learning about god because she was never raised in any church
whatsoever.  We got a return appointment and I'm excited for that
opportunity to help there family see the blessing of the gospel like I
have in my life.  Looking forward to meeting them again!

The rest of the week was just a lot of finding and less active lessons
that have been going great. Great overall week and I'm excited to
continue building up Gods kingdom in my vineyard (areas)!

Mosiah 3:19
19 For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall
of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless he yields to the
enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man and
becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and
becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love,
willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict
upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father.

The Atonement is here to make bad men good men and good men better
men.  I have definitely seen how the Atonement does change people for
the better and bless your life eternally.  I love my Savior Jesus
Christ and what he's done for me and for all the others around me.  I
know he died for us and came again and we will do the same.  Also the
Atonement is necessary for us to not just know about it but apply it
to our lives so use it daily.  It will bless your life and bless
others around you because of your example.

Love you guys
