Seven???? August 7, 2017


Wow this week was amazing! I love this area so much!

On Thursday we got together with the elders and did a tracting blitz
at an apartment complex. Wow! Whoever said tracting isn't effective
hasn't served in a YSA Ward! The experience was AMAZING! We contacted
15 people and got 7 new investigators! Wow! Nothing like that has ever
happened my whole mission! The Lord truly strengthened my faith to
find those who are ready to receive the gospel. Honestly, for the past
few months my faith to find was really lacking. But after this
happened, I know without a doubt that the Lord is preparing people and
placing us in their path!

Now let's talk about some of the people we met! We met a man named Bob
who's here for grad school. He was standing outside his apartment with
his HUGE cat! Perfect conversation starter! We talked about the cat
then that led to religion and he said he was raised religious but
isn't religious right now, but he's willing to talk about it with us!
We gave him a Book of Mormon and he told us he's actually been wanting
to read it. Woohoo! We had an appointment with him on Sunday and it
went really well! We hope we can strengthen his faith in Christ and
the gospel!

We had an amazing lesson with Wesley about the Plan of Salvation! He
had so many great questions and he understood everything! We extended
a baptism invitation and he said he'll think about it! Woohoo! I love
Wesley! Again so many people prepared by the Lord!

Unfortunately Deandre still hasn't come to church so we moved his
baptism date 😢 But it's okay we're still teaching him and he's still
super awesome!

This week I've been pondering on our gifts and talents. All of our
talents are gifts from our Heavenly Father. They didn't just appear
out of nowhere! Yes most of them are from practice but who helped us
practice? God did. Our talents are gifts from God we need to
acknowledge that. We should be humble and remember: every good thing
is from God and we need to thank Him for them.

Love y'all! Have a great week! Miss you! Remember who created you and
just how much He loves you! ❤️ He created all the stars and planets
in the universe and still decided to create you.
