Weekly Update - 10/19/2015

Hey Everybody,
This week has just been crazy. We have had a amazing week full of
service. We have helped shoveling dirt, building houses and doing a
ward wood project.

On Monday we had a pretty good lesson with a less active member. He is
really struggling with influences from others and making the wrong
choices. We deviated from our set lesson plan and helped him resolve
some concerns that he had. He then made us a really good dinner.

On Tuesday we started off by choopping wood for a less active widow in
the ward. That was pretty fun. While we were chopping wood a less
active member who was drunk started coming up and talking to us. We
were able to get to know him better and really connected with him.
Then we went over to a members home and helped them with some
landscaping that they where doing.

That night we met up with a less active member and his family and
shared about prophets. We then commited them to read a General
Conference talk. That went pretty good.

Wednesday and Thursday was full of Service for Non Members.

My favorite lesson this week happened on Saturday. We are meeting with
a man named Rick. We went over the Restoration with him. Throughout
the whole thing he commented and was asking really inspired questions.
All the comments he made would lead right into the next point. When we
talked about Joseph Smith and his vision he had. He told us he knew he
was a Prophet of God. We then watched a short clip showing what
happened. Afterwards he said he knows that Joseph Smith is a Prophet.
It is not a belief, but a knowledge. Rick is so prepared. He believes
in everything we taught so far.

I am now the District Leader here in pinetop now. The old one had to
be Emergency Transferred down to the valley. I thought I would have
had a break from the extra responsibilites of leadership. No Rest for
the missionary though. We just keep pressing forward until it is
finished. Which, not to get you trunky mom, is only in 103 days.

I love this gospel. I love this church. I know that this is Christ
church restored to the Earth again. I love listening to General
Conference everyday and the uplifting feeling it gives me.

My ponderize scripture this week is Moroni 7:45.

Well I love you all. Thanks for the support.
