Weekly Update

Hey my Peeps, 

This week was a pretty good week. We were able to meet with the Elders Quorum President and basically go through the list and find those that need ordinances performed. Then each week we are going to go on splits and contact some of these people to get these ordinances done. Super excited to do this and hopefully it will help further the work in this area. Also we were able to meet with our BML for the YSA and set up splits. We finally got a BML for the YSA. Hopefully that can help the work in the YSA as well. This week we were also able to coordinate with one of our WML and go through the list and find some LA to focus on. So this was a good week of just getting things organized and hopefully this upcoming week we can start working with the ward leaders to get these less actives and part member families moving. 

I was able to go back to Eagar, AZ to see one of the Investigators (Nancy Ward) I was working with there since June get baptized. She wanted me to be the one to baptize her. It was such an awesome service and the spirit was there so strongly. It was good to see all of my member friends there as well. Definitely​ one of the Highlights of my mission so far. 

Really good week. Hope all is well with yall. Love you all!

Hey Everybody, 

This has been a kind of slow week in our area because I got sick at the beginning of the week. We were able to have a lesson with a family (the Drakes) that went pretty good. It was sorta hard to teach because the member was getting frustrated with our style of teaching. He is used to just dumping information on those he teaches and we were just trying to teach simply. The lesson went good though and they are coming to church regularly so they are definitely progressing. We had a couple less actives that we are working with actually come to church now which is such a huge step for them. Good things are going on here. 

Thanks for all you do. Hope all is going well.

Hey Everybody, 

Things are going pretty good here. This was a really good week here. We were able to meet with a bunch of less actives this week and we invited one of them to prepare for the temple. They said that they defiantly want to and that they are going to meet with the bishop now. We have just been trying this week to gain the trust of the Ward Council by stopping by and visiting as many less actives as we can. A lot of them were not home due to the New Year and what not, but the one we were able to get in with were pretty good visits. 

For New Years we went back to Eagar to the Dome there and had a bunch of games to play and we watched "It's a wonderful life" like 2 times and it was fantastic. It Snowed here as well so I am super happy. We may not have had a white Christmas but we did have a white new years. 

Well I hope all is going well with everyone. Love Yall
