August 30, 2010

Hey family, how has the week been for you? This week has been OK over in Clifton as far a teaching lessons goes or what have you.

But we have still been having a lot of fun while we do it. Which is the important part.

So this last Friday, I got a phone call from Sister Bertoldo, telling me she was coming up to Duncan for the day, and that she wanted to meet me in Clifton to take us out for pizza. So we got to hang out with her, and David and Mia at R+R pizza. It was a lot of fun. And it was really nice to see them all again. It is so funny, because she has family that still lives here, and she gave me a bunch of names of people to go see and reactivate them/convert them. Haha so this is what I will be working on for the next little while.

So this last Sunday, me and Elder Howard had the opportunity to speak in sacrament. We talked to the ward about missionary work and how we teach investigators. I ended up speaking for over 20 minutes. Then elder Howard wrapped up. It was an awesome experience. Because before I gave the talk I got kinda nervous, and I was thinking "why am I so nervous? I get to talk about something I love!" but I couldn't shake the butterflies. So I prayed while the song was being sung, and I asked my heavenly father to help comfort me so I could speak with the spirit, and with the power and authority that he has given me. it worked. I got up to speak and I could feel the spirit overtake me as I began speaking.

Well, as far as our investigators are going, not so good, We had to drop alot of them because they weren't keeping their commitments, I was about to rebuke the lot of them. I don't know why, but no one is keeping their promises, and to get people to church is like pulling teeth out of a cow. Ever tried it? ya its tough. We stopped by one of the recent converts in the area, and literally had to force him out of bed and throw him in the shower. He made it though, and our efforts paid off.

I Love you all. I hope everything is going well.
