Dear Family and Friends,
How are you guys doing? I am doing great here in Arizona - Sharing the Gospel and helping others Come unto Christ. The weather here in Anthem has still been really nice and warm, but it is starting to heat up. I had a pretty good week with Zone interviews and 2 spiritually, wonderful lessons with our investigators. Zone interviews were great as we meet with President Taylor and have our quarterly interview with him and hear his counsel on how we can be more powerful Servants of Christ? We had a great training by our zone leaders on the importance of helping our investigators understand why we commit them to do things to help strengthen their Faith and show our Heavenly Father that they love him. Then we had training from Sister Taylor on planning effectively to make the best use of our time even on Pdays so we can get everything done so we can be ready for the next week of doing the Lord's work. She also talked about the different ways we can find the ELECT children in our areas that are prepared to receive the Gospel. The great thing that we always love about zone interviews is Sister Taylor's games which is on "cleaning" that has been a big focus these past months is keeping our residence clean so the spirit can be with us always. We had a great lesson this week with Alex and James on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The spirit was so strong to see her feel the spirit as we talked about receiving the Holy Ghost as our constant companion after we are baptized. The spirit is one of the greatest gifts we can receive in this life that can help us and comfort us through this journey of returning to live with God and our Families Forever. She has a Baptism date for May 25. But she has not been coming to church and she is living with her boyfriend. We also had a wonderful lesson with Rome on the Atonement and how Jesus Christ knows all of our trials that we go through and how living his Gospel can bless us and heal us from those pains. There were some contention between him and his wife. It was great to see how the spirit can change their moods. We invited and committed them to pray as a family everyday for our Heavenly Fathers guidance to help strengthen them as a family because we cannot give counsel on personal matters. We invited Rome to say the closing prayer and he said a spiritually, powerful prayer. It is so wonderful to see how the spirit can truly change hearts as we feel it. We had a lot of lessons that fell through so we were doing a lot of finding people to teach. We found a few potential investigators that we are going back to visit this week. That was my great week here in the mission field. I know that this Gospel is true and that Christ's church has been restored through Joseph Smith. By reading the Word of God and praying to our Heavenly Father he will answer us. I am so grateful for this opportunity that I have to represent Jesus Christ and do his marvelous work. The field is white ready to harvest, there is our family, friends, and people we know that are ready to receive the Gospel. We have to share it with them so they can have the joy and happiness that comes from the Gospel. I love and miss you guys all. Take care and have a great week.
