Weekly Update - 9/14/2015

Hey everybody,
This week was so awesome. To start off on Tuesday or Sullivan and a
member went to a lesson with the Ohlau's. There they were able to
commit brother Ohlau to a baptismal date for September 26. We then met
with brother Ohlau again later on in the week and went over that
interview questions with them. He is so ready and already has a huge
testimony of the gospel.

On Wednesday we had our zone training meeting. I was in charge of
conducting it. We had a lot of really good trainings. The first one
talked about how Jesus Christ was always about doing the will of the
father. Then they related back to us about how we need to align our
will to the fathers. That as we do so we will able to see ourselves
grow and become the missionary God wants us to be. A lot of ZTM was
talking about aligning our will with the father. We also talked about
the millennial's which is us. Those between ages of 18 and 30. We
talked about the things that make us unique and the things that are
true about our generation. One of the things that they talk about is
how we need to be authentic and we need to be real with people. As we
talked about the millennial's and what makes us who we are we then
applied it into our missionary work and how we can improve it with
this knowledge. Then me and Elder Walker gave a training on leadership
qualifications and how each of us is a leader and what we can do
specifically to step it up. The reason we needed to talk about this
was because of a decline in baptisms for our mission even though we
have less missionaries. As a mission we want to step up the
qualifications for being a leader so that everyone else will be
elevated to a higher standard and level as well. All in all it really
helped me focus on what I can improve on and how I can align my will
with the father.

Also this week we met with the new investigator named Crystal. She was
a former from a while back and even had a baptismal date. She really
wants to learn for self if it would teach is true and she even
excepted a soft commit to be baptized. She truly has a desire to learn
for herself.

All in all it was a really awesome week. We are able to teach more
lessons then we have been able to in a long time. The work is flirting
greatly right now. We are seen so much success in our area. I am even
getting good at making balloon animals.

Well I love you all. Keep being awesome.
