Dear Family and Friends,
How are you all doing? How's everyone summer going so far? Well, I am doing great here in Anthem - Sharing the Gospel. It is starting to get really hot, Saturday it got up to 106 degrees which feels like a blow dryer all day even the nights it is still warm. I make sure to drink lots of water so I do not get dehydrated. This week was a good week a bit slow. We had a lesson with Rome on the Gospel of Jesus Christ and helping him to understand how through the Atonement and repentance he can be forgiven for his sins. He is slowly progressing since the first time I met him, just trying to strengthen his Faith especially through hard times. We found a new investigator this week Mike from going through the potential list in our area book. He seems interested in learning about Christ and how he can help him in his life. He likes to talk so we have to figure out how to control the lesson so we can teach him the Gospel. I had a great exchange with one of the zone leaders Elder Kammissoko from West Africa. He is a great Elder that gave me some help and advice to fulfill my assignments as District Leader. Every week, I will be going on exchanges with a missionaries in my district to see how they are doing and give them training to help them be great missionaries. A big focus for us right now is finding new investigators to teach. We are working with the members teaching them short lessons and asking them who they know would be interested in the Gospel. Not too much referrals yet but we know they will come as members do their part in Sharing the Gospel and inviting them to learn about the Restored Gospel. I had another great district meeting teaching about the importance of getting our investigators to church and helping them be truly converted to activate the Atonement in their lives by partaking of the sacrament to renew their covenants they make at Baptism. We had a great Sabbath Day with many great testimonies from members. It was so great to hear a recent convert go up and bear a powerful testimony of the Gospel. He has been going through some hard times but as he lives the Gospel and feel our Heavenly Father's love for him. That was my great week in the mission field Sharing our Heavenly Father's wonderful gospel to his children that need to feel his love and how it can help them return to live with him and our families forever. I know this Gospel is true and it can change peoples lives for the better as they feel the Spirit testify to them that it is true. I love and miss you all. Take care and have a great week. Stay cool.
