"And any man that shall go and preach this gospel of the kingdom, and fail not to continue faithful in all things, shall not be weary in mind, neither darkened, neither in body, limb, nor joint; and a hair of his head shall not fall to the ground unnoticed. And they shall not go hungry, neither athirst." - Doctrine and Covenants 84:80

March 3, 2014

Hey, so a little update about life here. It's only been a few days since I last emailed, but things are actually going pretty good here. We've been super busy with meetings lately as always, but still been able to average like 30 lessons a week and still been able to find lots of new investies. Our High Councilman invited us to come to the Ward Mission Leader Training last night to teach about the new and returning member forms we use to help get members ready for the temple. Our High Councilman is way sick!  I'm glad to have him around. We get to meet with him again this week. 
We saw quite a few miracles at our church attendance yesterday. We had this one investigator we teach, who we neeeeeeeever thought would go to church. You have no idea how long it took us to get her to even pray, and she came to church for the first time yesterday with her husband and daughter who are both members. Also, we had this one lady come who we taught yesterday but her husband is Iglesia Ni Cristo and she always questions Joseph Smith and stuff, even though she's a member. She came to church yesterday for the first time in 15 years. Pretty dope!

Also, I think I mentioned this already, but we have our one homeless investigator we teach, It's kinda fun! He actually is almost done with 2 Nephi now. It still blows my mind that he speaks fluent English. It's fun because we just sit on the side of the highway and teach him. I guess it helps the world to see what we do. We actually gave him a baptism date. We're wondering if we can get him a job at maybe a call center or something since he speaks English and help him get an apartment so he can shower and buy a change of clothes and come to church. I can see it happen. That'd be a dope story!

Ya, we're doing way good. We have like 11 investies with a baptism date and we have one that is still set for March 22, so hopefully that goes through so I can see one more in this area before I probably transfer.
It's summer here now and bloody hot everywhere. The only place that has air conditioning is our church and the mall.
Aight, well that's all. love you!
