The work here is going so well. We have found another person that wants to get baptized. This has been so busy. I love this area. I feel a deep and special connection with all of my investigators. I have never related so well with my investigators as I have in this area. When you combine my connections with Elder Denton’s skills in utilizing the members it become a dream situation. I am happy the ward is welcoming our investigators.
I’d like to share a story this week which demonstrates our ability to reach and connect with our investigators. We go and teach this man named Mike on Saturday. He has come to church twice before this visit. It was always because we committed him to do it, more like an obligation rather than desire. Elder Denton and I were talking about the lesson before hand in the car. The last couple of times, it seemed like we were teaching lessons not teaching him. We both agreed that we didn’t really know too well. So we spent the first half hour getting to know him. He soon revealed his concerns and we able to teach accordingly. We left him with a commitment to read and pray about the Book of Mormon daily, which he gladly accepted. Then we extended a church invite, instead of commitment. He was there early the next morning. We are going to teach him more often. The members invited him to a service project, which he said he would love to go to. It is a huge blessing.
I hope everyone has a great week!
