How are you guys all doing? I am doing great here in Anthem - doing the Lord's work and helping others to feel the spirit and have a desire to Come unto Christ. It is starting to get hot here in Arizona. It is in the mid 90's and the dry blower effect is starting. I make sure I fill up my camelback everytime we go out so I stay hydrated. This week was another slow week teaching with lots of our investigators being busy. We have a pretty good teaching pool but they are not really progressing like coming to church or meeting with us. We are going to try to keep in contact with them and if they do not prioritize to meet with us we will give them a break for a period of time. I know that the Lord is preparing people that are ready to receive his Gospel and he will guide us to them when the time is right. We had a great lesson with TeTe on the restoration and answering her questions that she had about our beliefs. She had some really good questions like why do we say that we are the true church and why the Gospel was lost through the Apostasy. It was a great spiritual lesson to testify to her about Christ's church that he established and how it was restored through Joseph Smith and how we can know if it is true by reading and praying about the Book of Mormon and how the Holy Ghost will testify to her the truth. Besides that we did a lot of finding people through members having prayers with them and asking who they know that would be interested in the Gospel. We received a few referrals that we contacted but no one that is interested yet. If members do not have any one that they can share the Gospel with we commit them to pray and the Lord will guide them to someone they know who they can help Come unto Christ. By small and simple things great things come to pass. A simple invite to learn about the Gospel or inviting someone over for dinner goes a long way in preparing people to eventually receive the Gospel. On Saturday, we helped a less active family move to their new home pretty much the whole day. It was great to do service for them and hope they come back to church. That was my great week here in the mission field Sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ so they can know how the Gospel can bless their lives and return to live with God and our Families Forever. I love and miss you all. Take care and have a great week.
