Hey everyone, another week gone here in Cocoa Florida!! I'm doing really good and really enjoying this transfer. We only have 2 weeks left of this transfer, it's gone by really fast. Today is my 14 Month mark and it's gone by even faster haha. Things are really well in this area and Elder Goddard and I have been Super Diligent and we are seeing our work being paid off. #Blessings
This week I had an exchange with Elder Godinet, It was a really good exchange. We did a lot of finding and we found 5 new investigators. I can only say that 2 of them seem solid. But hey, that's what we are trying to do, find those who are prepared to receive the Restored Gospel! The exchange was really fun cause Elder Godinet is easy to get along with and it honestly felt like I was hanging out with a good friend all day! I Love Godinet!! Hah
Update on Doug, he is doing well, he was unable to make it to church this week cause he had to work down in Melbourne, He makes beautiful art pieces out of wood and sells them at different festivals. We did get to have a couple lessons with him though, they went really good we brought out a member and they really clicked, we have been focusing a lot to get Doug the fellowship he needs and it's been going pretty well. This week we asked doug if he has been able to receive his answer from Heavenly Father that the church is Truuu and he said he has. It's nice to know that he has received his true conversion.
So Last night we went to dinner with one of my favorite family's in the ward, The Klines, they invited some friends and a nonmember, at the end of dinner we shared a video about Jesus Christ and we went into sharing the restoration with Joe the nonmember and he was really interested and wants to learn more, we gave him a Book of Mormon. We're hoping to start teaching him soon. He's a really nice guy and he will be a member of the church he just doesn't know it yet. Haha
Something I wanted to share this week was in a talk given by Elder L. Tom Perry in April 1989, "Even though we have heard the prophets declare for decades “Every member a missionary,” we still have only a small percentage of the membership of the Church actively engaged in assisting stake and full-time missionaries in our responsibilities to declare the gospel to the world. We declare to the world that Jesus is the Christ. We abhor the doctrine that He is a myth or a creation of conspiring men in the world. We denounce the idea that He was just a great teacher. We testify of the divinity of Jesus of Nazareth, that He is the Son of God, the Savior of the world. We declare that we have an added witness of this divine truth, as contained in the Book of Mormon." We all as members of the church need to share the gospel and testify of our Savior Jesus Christ. Im so thankful for Jesus Christ and the love I know he has for me!
The scripture I wanted to share this week is Mathew 28:19-20 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. It's important that we all share the gospel and give people the peace that we have in our lives because of Jesus Christ! I love you all and hope you have a good week!!
