Dear Family and Friends,
How are you all doing? Well for me I am doing great here in Arizona. The weather is really nice and warm during the day. Having a great time riding my bike around Peoria, sharing the gospel, and teaching to our investigators and recent converts. The Romaro family is doing great in the church. Brother Romaro got ordained to the Aaronic priesthood yesterday and is doing great. Ben is also doing great in the ward and is fitting right in with the other young men in the ward. On Tuesday, we had district meeting where we focused on getting to know our members in the wards and trying to find people that they may know who would be interested in learning about the gospel. Then we did some visits with members. We are trying to focus on working with members and getting referrals from family, friends, neighbors, co-worker, or any one they may know who would like to learn how the gospel can bless and help them come closer to our Heavenly Father. Members are a great way to share the gospel and help investigators have support to help them learn the gospel and continue to help them endure after we teach them the new member lessons. We go tracking once in a while but it is not as effective as getting great investigators through the members. The Romaros were referred to us by brother Romaros sister and Ben was referred to us by his friend. Then in the evening we went on splits with the ward missionaries and I taught the Romaros the new member lessons such as the laws and ordinances. It went really well in preparing brother Romaro for the priesthood and getting them to do temple work. On Wednesday, I was on an exchange with our zone leader Elder Cannon in my area. We visited members, got to know them, and shared a message with them. Then we had a lesson with the Thaxton family on reading, praying, and coming to Church. We taught the kids all the lessons but they are not coming to church so they cannot get baptized until they come a few times. On Thursday, I went on another exchange with Elder Lynn in our district but in his area. We did some member visits and tracking. On Friday, we had a lesson with a new investigator Coryden. We got to know him and he knows a lot about the gospel. His friends dad taught him a lot and also got him a quad. He is doing great we had another lesson with him this morning on faith. Then later on Friday, we did our weekly planning. Then we had a lesson with Sis Brooks - RC (recent convert) on temple work and she was interested in learning about the temple. After we had a lesson with the Romaros family on enduring to the end which leads towards eternal life. On Saturday, we mostly did member visits. Sunday we had a great fast and testimony Sabbath day. Well that's pretty much my wonderful week in the mission field. Jeanna is still doing great but cannot find a new job to come to church. We got some great investigators but no one with a date yet. Hope everyone is doing great? My prayers are with you all. Until next week take care.
Love, Elder Lance Kuhi Cabral
