Yup it's beginning to look like Christmas, but it's brutally cold also.
So this last week has been busy; complete opposite from last week. We
taught a ton, but it was up in Ruther Glen... It is a serious strain
on our miles.. Anyway! Here's a rundown of my week over here in cold
Monday was Pday and it was a Zone activity. After that we drove back
up north and went to dinner with a member, who had an investigator
there! He was actually an old investigator, so we helped him gain some
of his fire back and challenged him to read the book of mormon with
this family! We also challenged him to come to church but he didn't
So we've been seeing this guy very rarely, but his name is Michael
Fox. We taught him when I first got here with Ellsworth, but after
that haven't seen him, then all of the sudden he's at church? We
didn't notice him at first, in fact I forgot his name. But when we
talked to him we figured out he was actually interesting in coming to
church now. A couple members in the ward have been visiting him and
his wife (who is a member) for a while now and I guess all that home
teaching payed off! During priesthood, he stood up and introduced
himself. He said that he's been hesitant to come to church, then one
day he woke up and wanted to come. It's kinda funny how that works.
The rest of the week we visited some new investigators! Although for
some reason we lost their teaching records.. so we had to go in and re
enter all the lessons which took a ton of time. And it was only with
the new investigators?
Jacob 1:19 "And we did magnify our office unto the Lord, taking upon
us the responsibility, answering the sins of the people upon our own
heads if we did not teach them the word of God with all diligence;
wherefore, by laboring with our might their blood might not come upon
our garments; otherwise their blood would come upon our garments, and
we would not be found spotless at the last day."
Love all you guys! Email me if you get a chance today! I'd love to
hear from you all!
