Heyy familia! Que pasion!?Conference was great! Wasn’t it? My companion also went through with what we learned that night after conference on Sunday. We were like, “danng!” All the talks were inspired! Also something that was mentioned many times was, “Patterns.” Then on Wednesday we had our Zone Conference and President Hiers talked about Patterns and shared a scripture in Doctrine and Covenants 52:1414 And again, I will give unto you a pattern in all things, that ye may not be deceived; for Satan is abroad in the land, and he goeth forth deceiving the nations—then we made a list of the patterns we have with being members of the Church. some of them were -Family Home Evenings-Scripture Study-Going to church-temple attendanceand etc.but we have these patterns so that we don’t be deceived by Satan! That’s why we do those things.
We went to contact the former investigators we have and see what happened. From their progress records it seemed that everything was going good and then it just stopped. So we went to do that and from that we found a lot of families to teach! Families! Ahhh!!! The area is really picking up. I don’t necessarily know what happened to them but we found them and we’re teaching them. 🙂 The patience is paying off!! hahaWe went on exchanges with Sister Rickett, our STL and it was really fun to have her with us. She helped a lot with our investigator and I’m happy that she was with us that day. We resolved M___ (our investigator’s) concern about baptism. Hopefully now she will start to progress. The area is really seeing miracles and there is so much work here! Even in Utah. It’s so sad when the people ask us if there’s work here. The first thing that comes to my mind is that, “do you not see the less-actives or the non members? There’s a ton of them! This mission would not be necessary if there was no work here.” There’s work everywhere. Keep being member missionaries because members are one of the most important keys to the work.
I love you all always and forever!
