Dear Family and Friends,
How are you all doing? I had a great week here in Glendale - Sharing the Gospel and helping our brothers and sisters enjoy the Blessings of the Gospel. The weather is still pretty hot here in Phoenix on Wednesday. It was 116 degrees and during the night it is still above 100 degrees so you still feel the heat especially riding my bike on concrete and asphalt which the city is full of. Well the work is going pretty well. We met a family that just moved from Mesa this month into our area. Only one of the daughters was baptized. The mom and 5 kids went to church in Mesa and were investigating the church before. We invited the kids to YW/YM on Wednesday and 3 of them came and had a great time. We are going to start meeting with them this week and start teaching them. One of the daughters, 24 yrs old was almost baptized before she moved. We also had a great lesson with Vanessa on Saturday at the church. She came with her little sister and we gave them a church tour of the classes they would attend when they come to church. Then we had a great lesson with them on the Restoration and committed her sister to be baptized with Vanessa on August 25. They seem so excited to follow the example of Jesus Christ and be baptized. Our Sunday attendance was alright, only one investigator came to church so we were kind of bummed. We always remind our investigators about church and they say there be there but they do not show up. We are going to try to focus more on the Sabbath day and the importance of church in there conversion to feel the Spirit and learn more about our Heavenly Father's plan. Besides the low sacrament attendence, our Sunday was pretty great. After coming out of our Ward council meeting we saw this African family (2 ladies and 2 kids sitting in the foyer) so we went up to them and introduce ourselves and gave them a church tour before sacrament started. They had a great time especially the kids going to Primary. It was so wonderful how they just wanted to come to a church and they came to the right church - The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We also had some great lessons this week with Diane. She has many concerns so we are trying to teach her the lessons while addressing her concerns. She is starting to understand our Heavenly Father's plan and why she should be Baptized into the true church. We are going to try and work more with the members and get referrals from people they may know that would be interested in learning about the Gospel and how it can bless their lives. Well that was my great week here in Arizona Phoenix Mission Sharing the Gospel so our brothers and children can return to live with our Heavenly Father and Families for Eternal life. I love being a missionary, Serving the Lord, inviting others to Come unto Christ and be happy not only for this life but the next. Hope all is well back home. My prayers are with you all. I love and miss you all. Thank you for all the wonderful letters of encouragement.
