Aloha Family and Friends,
How are you all doing? Well, for me I am doing great here in Glendale serving the Lord and helping others Come unto Christ. It was a great week for me in the mission field finding those that are waiting to hear the message of Restored Gospel and how it will bless their lives. The weather in Arizona is still pretty hot. I always try and stay hydrated because of this heat. This week we focused on finding those through tracting and visiting members and asking for referrals. We found 6 new investigators this week which was great. On Monday, we met a guy name Karlo had a prayer with him then the next day we had a lesson with him on the Restoration. A nice guy from Turkey, it is a little hard for him to understand because he does not know English that well. We took him to a Baptism on Saturday and handed him over to the singles ward missionaries to teach him because he is 23 years old and single so that would be a better ward for him to meet people. I also had a great lesson with Vanessa, the lady I found tracting last Saturday that was surprised to see us knocking on her door and she came to church the next day with her mom and 2 sisters. I was on splits and I taught her the Plan of Salvation and committed her to be baptized on August 28. The spirit is so amazing as you follow the promptings of the Holy Ghost it will truly guide you and help you to know what to say. We also had a great lesson with Joanne on the Plan of Salvation. We actually got through the complete lesson because she usually likes to talk, she is 77 and lives alone. We are trying to get her to church but she will not commit to baptism until she knows that it is true and she does not feel like she received any answers yet. We are going to focus on reading the Book of Mormon with her and committing her to pray to know that it is true. The Book of Mormon is a powerful resource in someones conversion process because if they know that it is true then they will know that the Gospel was Restored through Joseph Smith and we have a living prophet - Thomas S. Monson that leads and guides the church today. The Holy Ghost will testify the truth to those who sincerely want to know that the Gospel is true. We got transfer news this week and I am staying in Glendale for another 6 weeks. Well, I gotta go talk to you guys later. All of you are in our prayers. I love being a missionary and sharing the Gospel.
