Sharing the Gospel from Phoenix, Arizona

Hello Family and Friends,

How are you all doing?   Well I am doing great here in Phoenix, Arizona.  The weather has been really nice here in the 80's during the day.  This week was great in doing missionary work and sharing the gospel.  We did a lot of tracting and street contacting to find new investigators to teach.  Tuesday was a great day filled with teaching appointments.  We had a great lesson with Peter on the Plan of Salvation.  Then we had a lesson with a new investigator Rebecca that another pair of missionaries contacted on the street.  We taught her the Restoration of the Gospel and committed her to read and pray about the Book of Mormon to know that it is true.  Right after we had another lesson with Robie on the Plan of Salvation and she really enjoyed this lesson on where did we come from before this earth and the creation.  We ended the day by visiting a less active member and his family.  On Wednesday we visited some potential investigators and did a lot of tracting.  We found a few potential investigators that we shared the gospel with and asked if we could come back.  Then we had coordination meeting where we visited some investigators and less active members and invited them to our game night which is on Friday.  On Thursday, I was with the Spanish speaking elders most of the day because my companion had to go to a meeting.  We had a great lesson with a new investigator Sophia.  I could feel the Spirit even though I could barely understand what they were talking about.  Then we did some visits to members and less actives.  On Friday, we had a district meeting where we learned a new way of finding or approaching that mission in doing that we offer to pray and bless the household as we tract.  We did not try it yet but it should be a great way to help others feel the Spirit.  After district meeting, we had a lesson with Peter on the commandments and how our Heavenly Father blesses us as we are obedient to them.  Then we had another lesson with Robbie on the Sabbath day and praying.  On Saturday, we did some street contacting and went to a Stake Priesthood Meeting and the Adult Session.  There were some great talks on Staying Strong in the Gospel and Raising a Family in this World with Many Adversary.  We need to always Strengthen our Faith by having Daily Personal and Family Prayers, Scripture Study, Family Home Evening, and Spending Time with the Family to overcome the many temptations around us.  On Sunday, we had Stake Conference.  There was some great talks on how we need to help the less active members in our ward come back to church and share the gospel with our family and friends.  After we had a lesson with Rebecca on the Book of Mormon and committed her to pray about the Book of Mormon.  We invited her to church this Sunday.  Then we had a lesson with Robie and she invited her neighbor Sandy that really enjoyed us teaching her the Gospel.  We were so excited when Robie invited her neighbor so we had a new investigator to teach.  Hope all is well back home.  My prayers are with you all.  I love being a missionary and sharing the gospel and helping Heavenly Fathers children return to live with him and their families for eternity.
Love, Elder Lance Kuhi Cabral
