Dear Family and Friends,
How are you all doing? I am doing great here in Anthem - doing the Lord's work. This week was a great week even though we did not have too much lessons. We had a great lesson this week with Lea preparing her for her Baptism - we are reviewing the commandments with her. We taught her about the Law of Tithing and she did not commit to living it so we told her to pray about it, so that something we have been pondering on how to help her gain a testimony about tithing. She came to church this Sunday and loved it. She has been going through some trials and felt the talks were geared just for her and gave her strength to get through them. We also gave her a blessing to help her. We used a hearing aid headset from the Library and she could hear the speakers perfectly. We had a great Sacrament meeting with a Farewell talk by Elder Huband who is going on his mission to Guatamala. We also had a High Councilman that gave a wonderful talk on the Atonement and How Jesus Christ paid for our sins and he can help us through our trials. A cool story that happened last Saturday while we were walking around the apartment complex a less active guy named Ian came up to us that just got out of jail a few months ago and told us he wants to get his life straightened up and wants to go back to church. So we met with him this week and taught him about the Restoration of the Gospel and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It was so spiritual as we taught him about the Doctrine of Christ and how he can be forgiven of his sins and if he repents and lives the Gospel. He is 27 so we brought a member in our ward that goes to the Single Wards and invited him to attend their meeting because he wants to get involved in activities and he will enjoy the YSA (Young Single Adult) more. A big focus that we have been working on is finding new investigators through working with the members and talking to everyone and asking them for refferals. A few of our investigators have not been progressing because they have been so busy. I had a great District Meeting this week on How important it is to rely on the Spirit to guide us in everything we do and How important it is to listen to our investigators and discern What they need to be taught according to their needs. Online prosyleting has been going great in contacting investigators, checking up on their commitments, sharing messages, and having discussions with them. That was my great week here in the mission field Sharing our Heavenly Father's Gospel with his children. I know that this Gospel is true and through our Heavenly Father's plan we can return to live with him and our families forever. The Gospel has been Restored through Joseph Smith and we can continue to have the fullness of the Gospel through a living prophet, Thomas S. Monson. I testify that our Heavenly Father lives and loves us all. Jesus Christ is our Savior that fulfilled the Atonement so we can be cleanse of our sins as we live his Gospel and follow his Example. I am so grateful to be a Representative of Jesus Christ and Preach his Gospel to all those who are searching for the Truth. I love and miss you all. Take care and have a fantastic week.
