July 2, 2013

Well this week has been a very productive week. We weren't able to work on Tuesday or Sunday because of all of our meetings, but in the few days we had, we got a lot of work done. On Tuesday we traveled 2 hours to go and say goodbye to Pres and Hna Watts. It was sad saying goodbye, but I'm confident that the future will bring many blessings. This week we put up 3 new baptism dates and they are all with people that are really prepared and ready to receive the restored gospel. One of the new converts will be a member from the Adventist church that has been such a blessing for us. We found her about 3 weeks ago and she has taught us so much. She is going to be a great member in this small branch. In this month we will have 5 baptisms. The crappy thing is that I believe that this change I'm going to get moved and won't be able to see these baptisms. I'm really starting to see the fruits of my labor. I'm so glad to have been put in a tough area like this because I have grown so much and I can have a bigger impact here than in any other area. When I got here we had a Sunday attendance of 7 and now we had 18 this last week. I really have a testimony of being obedient to the Lords will. Our obedience has allowed us to be instruments in the Lords hands in helping this area grow. This next week I will be able to tell if there is a transfer or not. 

I love being a missionary. I know that this is the Lords work and it is growing. The Book of Mormon can help any person come closer to God.

With Love
