Dear Family and Friends,
How are you guys all doing? Hope everyone is having a great summer. I am doing great here in Anthem Sharing the Gospel and helping others Come unto Christ. This week was a great week for teaching and finding new investigators. The weather has been hot in the 110s but it cooled down a bit from last week. We had a great lesson with a new investigator Rick on the Restoration of the Gospel and helping him to understand about prayer and how our Heavenly Father wants to help him. The spirit was so strong as we invited him to be Baptized on August 10, but we probably will have to refer him off to other missionaries because he lives out of our area. We also had a great lesson with Joseph getting to know him and teaching him about how he can know that the Book of Mormon is true. We had a great short lesson with Joni watching the Restoration video with her and helping her to understand how Joseph Smith was called by God to restore his Gospel on this earth again. We also met with Jackie and had dinner with her at a members home The Stotts. Our week was great with lessons, then the remainder of the time we were focusing on working with the members and having short lessons with them. We had a special Fasting yesterday for Missionary work and our Ward Mission Leader committed everyone in our Priesthood Quorum to invite their friends and neighbors over to to have dinner, play games, or something small to build friendship and soften their hearts. We had an awesome Zone Meeting on the Culture of our Mission to be Obedient, Teach the Doctrine of Christ, happy, and having fun doing the Lord's work. We also did reemphasize on our prayer approach that was introduced last May because so many of our missionaries are new to our missions. We have the biggest zone in our mission right now with 29 missionaries. Over 80% of our missionaries have been out for less than a year and over 60% have been out for 6 months, a big change with the influx in missionaries. Elder Boguyone has joined our District and he has been out for 5 months so my District is young besides me. That was my great week in the mission field. I love and miss you all. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ lives and loves us all. You are all in my prayers. Take care and have a great week.
