What's up everyone,
Elder Gentry once again makin' his declaration from the East Coast!! November is here but it's still hot haha I guess it's better than biking in the snow!! This week was very long due to riding those bikes Monday thru Friday, but nevertheless we had a great week and we made the most of it! Elder Russell and I are killin it, the area has been a work in progress but the work coon and I did is really helping at this point in time!
This week we had a really good lesson with our investigator Karen, we were able to bring a member out with us to help out and they were able to relate a lot and it really helped, we taught her the Plan of Salvation and she Loved it!! The knowledge of the Plan of Salvation can change everything, it brings comfort knowing God has a plan for us!! At the end of the lesson we were talking about baptism and we set a date for her to be baptized on November 26th Woohoooo!! So exciting, she was so happy! She loves the Gospel and she's learning a ton! She has come to church 2 weeks in a row and things are looking really good for her!
We have been doing a lot of Part Member finding, the bishop has stressed the importance of working with the Part Member family's, this week we found a new Part member family and we had a really good lesson with them, we hope we continue to teach them and help them live the Gospel!!
Something I wanted to share this week comes from General Conference, "Sharing the Restored Gospel" Dallin H. Oaks, Sharing the gospel is not a burden but a joy. What we call “member missionary work” is not a program but an attitude of love and outreach to help those around us. It is also an opportunity to witness how we feel about the restored gospel of our Savior. As Elder Ballard has taught, “A most significant evidence of our conversion and of how we feel about the gospel in our own lives is our willingness to share it with others.” I testify of Jesus Christ, who is the Light and Life of the World. His restored gospel lights our way in mortality. His Atonement gives us the assurance of life after death and the strength to persist toward immortality. And His Atonement gives us the opportunity to be forgiven of our sins and, under God’s glorious plan of salvation, to qualify for eternal life, “the greatest of all the gifts of God”
Things are going really good!! I'm loving it, just making the most of the time I have left! I'm excited for this next week, I'm going on an exchange with a former companion Elder Gillen and were going to party, I love Gillen, The scripture I want to share this week is Alma 5:49 And now I say unto you that this is the order after which I am called, yea, to preach unto my beloved brethren, yea, and every one that dwelleth in the land; yea, to preach unto all, both old and young, both bond and free; yea, I say unto you the aged, and also the middle aged, and the rising generation; yea, to cry unto them that they must repent and be born again. Love this scripture, love you all!!
