This was a week that was full of new and wonderful things.

This week I studied PMG everyday! I am studying out of the fundamental lessons and I am learning a lot. The more and more that I study the more that I learn that I have no idea how to do missionary work. :) I am starting to realize that PMG has all of the answers for my questions, whether it is for recent converts, investigators, even my companion. What a wonderful book and I dont understand why I have not had my noes in it my whole mission.

The last couple of days I have been studying the fundamental lesson of revelation through prayer. We have a couple of people that we are teaching that are in need of the knowledge that is in that lesson, but I am also studying it for myself. I am really trying to have more faith in my prayer and to receive more revelation through them. I am trying to have a more personal communication with Heavenly Father. I know that it can be my favorite moments in my life to communicate with Heavenly Father and so I am trying to seek for knowledge on the thing I need to do different to make that happen. I also know that it will greatly help me as a missionary and His tool if I can talk with him better.


So for those of you that don’t know who that is, which is everyone that is reading this. He is the BIGGEST ANTI in the TriCities, teaches classes and protests, the whole nine yards. He has been doing it for like 30 years. Boy he needs to get a life.

He came to one of our lessons!! Georgiana the New Investigator lesson that we taught is taking a Mormonisom 101 class that is being taught by him and she invited him the come to the lesson. 0.0 We received a great blessing, he showed up 35 minutes late so we got through basically all of the first lesson. We had Brother Blaser with us, 1st counselor in the bishopric, he shared great testimony. We left as soon as Marshal got contentious which not surprisingly didnt take him to long. What a crazy experience!

Thank you for everything that you do.
Love you all so much.

So this week there was two exchanges that happened I had Elder Fabiano with me at the beginning of the week and the I had Elder Johnson with me at the end of the week. They both were great exchanges! On both exchanges we found new investigators and got to talk to a lot of people. I learned a lot from both missionaries, it is so awesome to be able to focus on PMG I haven’t really done that my whole mission so it is nice to be able to repent and do better. Don’t get me wrong I got distracted by good things, like the Book of Mormon, Jesus the Christ, or the New Testament, all great things but it took my out of PMG. I have been learning so much this week by turning my focus to PMG, I know that it will help me greatly have the best last six months that I can. We found Paul and Georgiana by talking with everyone and not missing an opportunity, especially with Paul.

Paul was in his BackYard behind his fence. Luckily Elder Johnson is the height of a skyscraper and could see over the face from across the road. He was able to say hi and get him to come up front to talk with us. Boy was it funny for me when he started talking to someone and I just started looking to who he was talking to and couldn’t see anyone. He was a very nice guy and was very sincere about his willingness to see if what we teach is true.

Sadly this week didn’t end on the best of note. We had three of our Recent Convert to the ward not take the news very well. They will not be coming to church anymore as of now. We have done all we can on our end and have informed the Bishop of what we know and have heard. Now all we can do know is pray.
I first heard about the news Saturday Morning at 11am, Satan immediately tried to bring doubt into my mind. I knew that I needed to receive a witness from God, I prayed. The first witness that came to me is that I knew that the church was true and that was enough for that small moment. But I kept a prayer in my heart want to knew that this exact thing was of God, I knew that as I would press forward knowing the knowledge of what I knew I would receive truth.

It didn’t come until later that night,7pm, after hours and hours of prayer and moving forward with faith knowing that I did know that the church is true and that God is at the head. That truly is the way that we need to move forward to receive the greatest revelation, we receive answers by the prayer of faith not the prayer of doubt and disbelief. Now that is not to say that you will never receive answers if you have any doubts at all, but the more light and greater knowledge comes to those that are moving forward towards the light not stepping away or turning from it.

I know that God is in control of His church, I know that Satan is in the world and trying to destroy everything good that he can. He is turning the world against God and making his laws look like they are old, out of date, not actually going to bring us joy, or hate others. Satan is increasing his work and pulling so many with him. Always know that God answers prayers and He loves His children. I love this church and the steps that they are taking to protect the laws and family of God.

Thank you for everything.

I love you all so much. Please Pray and know that God loves you and his Children.

This was a great week we are hitting the ground hard to find new people that are going to be ready to be baptized. We are striving for a baptism in November and acting in faith to make that happen.
We are working with members and recent converts to help us find. and for them to work on their family mission plans so that they can be actively involved in the work that God has in store for this area.

We are doing service and getting recognized in the community. We are having people talk to us and hopefully will result in some more people to teach.

It is such a wonderful time to be in the WKM. Really in the mission force at all God truly is harvesting only for this last time and to be a part of it it so wonderful! It builds my testimony each and every day.

Went to the temple today and had a wonderful time

I am very greatful for all that you do for me each and everyday.
I love you all so much and I keep you in my prayers.

What a Great Week

Changes are going to happen to that ward soon, the WML is moving to SLC for a new job, so we will be getting a new WML here soon. So always brings a change. Last we heard was that is was going to be happening within a couple of weeks.

Nicole and Isiah had a wonderful baptism and confirmation this week. They had family that came, and lots of people from the ward. They are both full of light with the new conversion that they have in the Lord. Nicole is already sharing her testimony with her nonmember family members and is gladly reporting it back to us. We will hopefully be sending a referral down to Cali here soon. So wonderful to see that family coming together in unity in the gospel. WOW what a great day when they are sealed in the temple. I will definitely be there for that one.

I am so grateful to come to know Jesus Christ more and more each day. I love the strength that is given to me through him. There is no better way to go through this life then by and through Christ. He is the source of full and complete joy in this life, and He is there to help us grow and develop into the the person that we can be.

Well I love you all soo much thank you for everything that you do!

Well I am off to see the miracles that God is putting in the path of these righteous children of his. Nicole IS AMAZING! We are also teaching Isaiah as well! The 11 year old son of Adam, he is also very excited to be baptized. Both are being baptized on October 24th. WOW. I am so glad that we followed the impression of the spirit to go to that house. Nicole is so prepared and is following and keeping all of her commitments and noticing how much happier she is in just the short amount of time. God Blesses us right away he doesn’t wait once we have had our change of heart. Adam is coming along as well he hasn’t gotten his answer yet but we are still working with him. He met with the bishop last week and we are working to see if…. he might be able to baptize Nicole and Isaiah!! The biggest thing that is keeping him back is the same thing that is push Nicole forward so fast. That change of heart. The difference is that Nicole has had it and Adam has not yet. During my fast this last week I included him in to be able to have the Holy Ghost touch his heart and for him to listen to it.

Linda is also ondate. There could be a bump there her husband decided that he didnt want to meet with us anymore, decided he wants to stay catholic. But she wants to keep meeting with us and wants to get baptized she just doesn’t want to have it cause a problem if she does so we will see what the outcome of that is. We will probably be doing a special fast with her, hopefully soften the heart of the husband and to help her increase her faith. WKM is the Promise land!

I love being able to use to atonement every day to improve on things every single day to improve and become better some that I dont ever become Comfortable. BOY OH BOY what a great mission conference so much to study on and restudy. I Loved the spirit that was there. Such a great couple of weeks with General Conference and then the Mission tour with Elder Johnson WOW So much of a spiritual recharge!

Conference Weekend

Conference was a blast such a wonderful spirit that was there to confirm that the 3 new apostles that were called had indeed been called of God. I loved to be able to hear their testimonies. I am so grateful for prophets and apostles and the leadership of the church to be able to guide, direct, and warn us. We got a lot of that this conference, the World is running away from God and we dont want to get caught in the path by not knowing what way to run. Keeping the Commandments that is the path that we need to be on. And not just some of them.

We all of our investigators, that could, watching conference. They all had a spirit pack time doing it, But who wouldn’t. Nicole and Linda are both moving towards the Lord at a smooth rate. They are both preparing to be baptized on October 24th. They are both wonderful daughters of God that have a great destiny ahead of them. I am so excited to see them make the steps that they need to be baptized and to bring the Gift of the Holy ghost into their lives. This is truly the best work that can happen in the world today.

The WKM is the promise land! miracles happen everyday in the WKM. I am grateful that I am living worthy of those miracles to happen. To be able to be an instrument in the hands of the Lord to move his work forward is the best privilege of my life. To be held in His hands and molded to play just the right song at just the right time. WOW

Birthday Week

So this week was so different then a year ago. What a difference to see what kind of missionary I have changed into. My birthday last year totally through me for a lope. I wasn’t focused as I should have been, I was not in a great place with the companion that I had, and my birthday made me really home sick; just wanting to spend a birthday with friends and families it was a real problem for me.

This year was 100% opposite.

I was focused on what I was doing with the work it never made me skip a beat, in fact it even made me think about how I could use it to help. As I was thinking about that for a couple of days a member family ask me at church if they could throw me a party that I could invite all those that we have been working with in the two wards to. Prayers were answered I got to use this wonderful moment on the mission to further the work to have people that are investigators meet member and recent converts. It was such a great environment to have them all to, even had Dallen thank me for the invite saying “we dont ever get invited out to things”. They really had a great time mingling with everyone that was there, and got to meet the most recent member of the ward. Got to share my testimony to each of them personally and even got the time after ward to have a lesson with Flor about the Holy Ghost.

The whole week it kept me focused on my purpose as a missionary, help bring people closer to Christ and Help them become converted to the gospel, and a part of that is helping them mingle and make friends with people in the church, and help members mingle with investigators and nonmembers, and teach in members homes. Which all happened in one event. VERY COOL.

I am also in a much better place as a missionary then I was a year ago. I am so grateful for the direction that has taken place in my life and missionary work with the absolute direct help and guiding hand of Jesus Christ and His Atonement. I am so grateful for the gift of repentance to be able to make changes in our lives and to become better and not the to change behavior but to be able to change our very nature. When that kind of change happens you never go back to who you were before, so little by little you can develop in the person that God needs. You are humble enough that God can work through you and with you to do miracles in the life that He has given you. Alma 19:33 …-that their hearts had been changed; that they had no more desire to do evil.

That is the heart that He needs. That is the heart that is applied to understanding the Holy Ghost and the direction that it gives you in your life. So that we can all be a lighthouse of the gospel to the world and to everyone that we come into contact with.

What a Great and wonderful week we have ahead of us to look forward to general conference.

Pray for answers to questions.

Love you all so much.
