Dear Family and Friends,
How are you all doing? I am doing great here in Anthem - Sharing the Gospel and helping others Come unto Christ. The weather was good this week, it cooled down to the low 100's this week which feels nice compared to 110 degrees. We had a great lesson this week with Aly and Jackie on the Book of Mormon and how it was translated by Joseph Smith and how they can know that it is true by reading and praying about it. It was great they invited their neighbors over to learn more about the Gospel. They had a lot of questions that we answered. We also had a great lesson with Rome on Trusting in God and how we grow from our trials, we read in Alma 36 with Alma telling his son about his conversion and how as he repented and how all his guilt was swept away and God forgave him. I had a great exchange this week with Elder Farnsworth in his area we did some member visits and had a lesson with Liz on how we can receive guidance to our questions by asking our Heavenly Father in prayers, what we should do and he will always answer us. On Thursday, we mostly helped a less active family move to their new home which we did pretty much all day. I had a great District meeting on the Book of Mormon and how it is the keystone of our religion and how we need to help our investigators gain a testimony of the Book of Mormon. We had a great Sabbath Day with the awesome Missionary Broadcast by the Prophets and Apostles which can be found on the www.lds.org website - on how we need to adapt to the change in times by using technology to Share the Gospel and help the Lord's work accelerate by using the internet to find and communicate with his people. Our Misson President Taylor said we will not be able to use the internet to Share the Gospel until Salt Lake authorizes our mission to use it, which I hope will be in the next few months so I can have a taste of how it affects missionary work in helping others Come unto Christ. There were some great talks and videos on how members have to help us in finding people to teach and inviting them to learn more about the Gospel. God is Hastening his Work and he needs everyone to fulfill their duties to Preach his Gospel so his children can enjoy the blessings of the Gospel and return to live with him and their families forever. That was my great week here in the mission field Sharing his wonderful Gospel to our Heavenly Father's children. I know that the Gospel is true and it has been restored in its fullness through Joseph Smith and we have a modern day prophet, Thomas S. Monson that continues to guide all of us back to our Heavenly Father. I am so honored to be part of his growing Army of Missionaries in proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a world that needs it. I love and miss you all. Take care and have a great week.
