Things are going pretty good here. This week we were able to find a
new Investigator in the Pinetop Lakes ward. His name is Cody. We were
going over to teach a Less Active and her significant other (Cody) was
there. Apparently he was meeting with missionaries down in Whiteriver,
but then they stopped coming by for some reason. He is really
prepared. We taught them the restoration and invited him to be
baptized. He says that is something he wants to do. He hasn't set a
date yet, but we hope to be able to set a date this next lesson.
Also a Less Active that we are working with has quit smoking this
week. He is starting to use Chantex and it seems to be going really
well. We watched a video with him called "hope ya know, we had a hard
time" It is by Elder Quentin L. Cook. Curtis started to cry a lot and
expressed to us how hard it was to give up smoking. This video really
helped him know that Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father are always
there for us. Also he gave us his cigarettes and e-cigs to get rid of
so that is what the picture is of at the bottom.
We had a lesson with another Less Active that was drunk when we showed
up. It was the one year anniversary of when his Aunt died. He was
going through a really hard time as well. He just needed someone to be
there for him. He is a good guy who just needs help from the Lord.
This week we were able to go down to the Valley and have a Special
Mission Leadership Conference with Elder Lynn G. Robbins of the
Presidency of the Seventy and also Elder Tilleman of the 6th Quorum
of the Seventy. It was just all of the Zone Leaders and Sister
Training Leaders that were there. It had the feeling of a one on one
with a General Authority. We talked about his recent CES Fireside he
gave in May. It was awesome because we could ask him any questions we
This week we also were able to go to the temple and I was able to
bring over 70 names to do baptisms and confirmations for. It was so
amazing to be able to get so much work done in the temple. The spirit
was definitely so strong there. I love the temple so much.
This week we also went on exchanges with the Assistants to the
President. That went pretty good. For morning exercises we did disk
golf which was pretty fun.
Today we are gettting our hair cuts by the stylist who did madonnas
hair on her Rouge tour he said. So hopefully it looks pretty good. We
are also making Indian Tomahawks today and making really nice pens
with our Ward mission leader.
Well I hope all is well with you all. Keep being awesome and sharing
