Aloha Family and Friends,
Happy New Year!! How is everyone doing? How was your New Year's? I cannot believe it is 2012 but I am excited to be here on my mission this whole year doing the Lord's work and sharing the gospel. Well for me, I had a great New Years in Arizona. We went to church at 9 am for Apache Park Ward. We had 7 investigators come to church, so we were excited that they were starting the new year by coming to church and learning more of the gospel and how it can bless them in their lives. Then we had Sunrise Mountain Ward which starts at 11 am. They had a great sacrement about Reading the Book Of Mormon this year and how it can help us in our lives. After church, we went home and I did some studying. Then we had to drop off our district leader at the mission home because he is finishing his mission a week early to start school. Best wishes to Elder Farnsworth for all his service in doing the Lord's work. Then we had an awesome lesson with a family of 3. We taught them the Gospel of Jesus Christ and invited them to be baptized and they said yes!!
We were so excited for them the spirit was so strong throughout the lesson. What a great way to start a new year by committing to be baptized and be on the path to eternal life with their families forever. Well that was my wonderful New Year's day in the mission field.
On Tuesday, we did some tracking and had a great lesson with the Family of 3 and we read the Book of Mormon & read having Faith in Jesus Christ. On Wednesday, I went on an exchange with one of my zone leader Elder Freeman. We did some visiting and went to their district meeting. Then I exchanged back and had a great lesson with Ben on the plan of salvation. On Thursday, we had weekly planning and did some tracking. Then we had a lesson with a family about the plan of salvation and how we can know God's plan for us. Then we had correlation meeting with our ward mission leader where we visited some investigators to see how there doing. On Friday, we had district meeting and did some tracking. On Saturday, we visited a family that the husband got baptized in October. Then we did some tracking and visit some potential investigators to see if they were interested in learning more about the gospel. Had a great week! Gotta go take care everyone.
Love, Elder Cabral
