How are you all doing? Hope everyone is having a fun and safe summer. I am doing great here in Anthem doing the Lord's work. It was a pretty hot week here in Arizona with record breaking temperatures. Some days it got up to 117 here in Anthem which feels like being in an oven. I make sure to drink lots of water and it is great when members are home they let us in for a little while to cool down. Our week was a bit slow with lessons but we had 2 spiritually filled lessons. We had a great lesson with Emma on the Word of Wisdom and choosing good friends that will help her Choose the Right (CTR). I went on my last exchange for the transfer with Elder Okelberry in his area, which is a car area so it was nice to have air condition for the day. We had a great day visiting members and potential investigators. We had a great lesson with an investigator Chris on the Plan of Salvation and invited him to be baptized. He said he would be baptized when he knows more, so we committed him to pray if he should be baptized. I had a great District meeting on getting our investigators to church and helping them realize the importance of keeping the Sabbath Day holy by coming to church. We also listened to a talk on the Restoration of the Gospel and how Joseph and Hyrum Smith were killed and how through their courage & acts we have the fullness of the Gospel today. We have been working a lot with the members teaching them lessons and seeking referrals but not much yet. We hope the broadcast helped them to do missionary work and we can continue encouraging them to Share the Gospel so we can teach those that the Lord is preparing. On Saturday, we helped Rome move into his new home in the Daisy Mountain Ward which is in my District. Then we helped a new family move into their new home. We had a great Sabbath Day with great talks by a new family in our ward and in the combined 3rd hour our Bishop talked about the Broadcast and committed the members to invite their neighbors, family, and friends into their home for the next 2 months. It is an exciting and but sad week with the 58 new missions starting yesterday. We lost 35 missionaries in the Phoenix Stake that got transferred to the Arizona Tempe Mission and we got 18 missionaries with Flagstaff joining our mission. Elder Lovstedt in my District is getting transferred so we are getting a new missionary in our District on Wednesday. 30 new missionaries are coming this transfer which is the biggest transfer yet with the increase in missionaries. Well, that was my great week here in the mission field doing the Lord's work. I testify that our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ lives and loves us ALL. I testify that this Gospel is true and it was restored through Joseph Smith. Thomas S. Monson is God's servant that continues to guide his church today so we continue on the straight path back to our Heavenly Father. I love and miss you all. Take care and have a great week.
