Aloha Family and Friends,
How is everyone doing? Well, I had a great week in the mission field teaching the Gospel. This week was busy with lessons. We had 3 lessons with Kelsee this week on the Plan of Salvation, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and going over the commandments about the Sabbath Day, Law of Tithing, and the Word of Wisdom. She grew up going to church with her parents so we are just reviewing it with her to help her prepare for her baptism on June 30. Dylan the 16 year old is also doing great we taught him the Plan of Salvation, Word of Wisdom, and keeping the Sabbath Day. It was great to see him and his mother come to church yesterday. His mother has not been to church in over 15 yrs so we were glad to see her support her son and renew her covenents. Hopefully they felt the spirit and they stay active and see the blessing that come from keeping the Sabbath Day holy by coming to church. On Wednesday, I was on exchanges for most of the day with Elder Hyer and Elder Wheel Wright because our companions had leadership meetings. We had a great lesson with eEder Hyers investigator Loise on the Gospel of Jesus Christ and by having Faith in Jesus Christ, Repenting, being Baptized, Receiving the Holy Ghost and Enduring to the end so we can return to live with our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and our Families Forever in the Celestrial kingdom. Then we mostly did visits around each others area seeing investigators and members. We stop by Peter and his two sons Moses and Atum. My companion and I will be seeing them to set up a lesson and have a short lesson on reading the Book of Mormon. We have been meeting with them for quite a while now but they cannot come to church because Peter works on Sunday. Then on Thursday, I was with Elder Wheel Wright again most of the day. We did a lot of stop by with potential investigators. We had a great lesson a lesson with Dylan on the Plan of Salvation and focused on the Atonement and how Jesus Christ overcame death for us through his suffering and died for so all us can return to live with God as always try to be obedient, keep the commandments, and do all we can to serve him. It is good to be on exchanges with different missionaries to see how they teach and how we can learn from each other ways to become better servents of Jesus Christ. Then on Friday, we had zone meeting with President and Sister Taylor on how we should always strive to have members at every lessons because they have testimonies and experiences that can help the investigator feel the Spirit. After zone meeting my companion and I went to the Mesa Temple and did an Endowment session. It was so wonderful to do temple work and feel the strong Spirit being in the House of the Lord. Saturday, we did our weekly planning and stopped by and saw Sandy and her baby daughter Angel. Then we had a lesson with George on the the Priesthood. He is doing great coming back to church to help him get back on the right path. Sunday was a wonderful Sabbath day, we had a record of 5 investigators Dylan, Loretta, Kelsee, Terri Bostwick a former investigator, and James Hall who is waiting for his probation to be over in July then he can get baptized. Well that was my wonderful week in the mission field. Hope all is well for everyone. I love being a missionary and helping other feel the Spirit and see how the Gospel changes their lives. I love you all and my prayers are with you all.
Love, Elder Lance Kuhi Cabral
