Dear Family and Friends,
How are you all doing? I am doing great here in Anthem doing the Lord's work and helping others Come unto Christ. The weather has been pretty nice this week during the day and even the nights are nice and chilly. This week was a great week with Leadership meeting, Zone meeting and our Awesome General Conference. On Tuesday, I had a Leadership meeting that I got some great learnings that will help me as a District Leader. A big focus was on helping our missionaries deal with the Stress of Missionary work and how to help them cope with it. We got a new booklet that all missionaries will get at Zone interviews this month on adjusting to the missionary life. It is a great booklet that focuses on new missionaries but also helps all missionaries that go through physical, emotional, spiritual, and social challenges through their missions. We also learned about being focused on the work and thinking outside the box and thinking of creative ways to find people to teach without doing things that are not part of our purpose. Zone meeting was also great with teachings on helping our new members by continuely teaching them for 3 months after their baptism to help with retain and spiritually progress towards their next covenants in the temple thru activities in the church. We got spiritually nourished this weekend with the wonderful talks from General Conference. Many uplifting talks from the prophets, apostles and all those who spoke on messages that will help us in our journey back to our Heavenly Father. I enjoyed many of the talks, especially President Ucthdorf's talk on Helping our Heavenly Children come back to the Fold and President Monson's talk on Enduring through Trials. We were at the Stake Center all day on Saturday watching all 3 sessions and on Sunday watching the last 2 sessions. Our week was a bit slow we had 1 lesson with Leslie on Prophets and talked to her and Beau about the great talks from General Conference. We are really focusing on finding new investigators by talking with everyone and asking for referrals because our teaching pool is low, many of our investigators are not progressing. That was my great week here in the mission field Sharing this wonderful Gospel with all those that I meet. I love and miss you all. Take care and have a great week.
