This week was pretty good! Not only did we find out that Elder Guthrie doesn't need an MRI, but we put somebody on date, at their request!
So real quick, our investigators are doing great! While we haven't found anyone new to work with, everyone that we are working with is almost progressing! All of our investigators have completely fallen in love with the Book of Mormon and the other scriptures and are reading like crazy, Randa, one of our investigators that we have been working with since I've gotten here, is already in Alma and absolutely loves the peace and knowledge that has come from reading it!
Andrea, another one of our investigators is also doing awesome! While we haven't been able to have an actual lesson for about a week and a half, we have been able to stop by quite a lot and has also told us about the peace that the Book of Mormon and the bible have brought into her life :) Also, her sister, a recent convert in Ohio, has been bearing her testimony and sharing her visiting teaching messages with her! Also the Ward has just completely taken her in and it's been amazing to see :)
Also this week we got to earn the trust of the Ward even more by teaching the priests quorum (young men aged 16-18) the first discussion and then answering questions that they have about missionary work. I am so surprised by the youth today. While they are only a few years younger than me, I swear they are miles ahead of where I ever was. They all have such a string testimony of the Book of Mormon, of Gods love for them, and that Jesus Christ is their Savior :) It's awesome! The bishopric was all there as well and seemed very proud of us missionaries so hopefully they might trust us a little more now :)
One of my favorite parts about being a missionary has got to be helping others and loving those that I serve with. The best part is that as a district leader I get to do that daily to my fellow missionaries and to their investigators :) It's so amazing to see how much the Lord is truly hastening the work :)
Also my thought for the week comes from the YSA devotional given by Russell M. Nelson. It's called becoming True Millennials. I would encourage you all to look it up, it rocks :) Anyways though in it he talks a lot about how much potential hat we all have and that the biggest stepping block that really anyone has, is failing to realize that they are a son or daughter of GOD and that they can truly do anything. :) I love this a ton because it is so true! When we realize that we have so much potential, and that we have such a loving Father in Heaven who loves and cares about us, we can literally do anything!
Think of all the good that can be done!
I love this gospel and I love you all!
Never give up, Never Surrender!
