May 5, 2014


    This was a pretty great week. Super busy, a few disappointments but lots of good things.

    On Wednesday, the ZLs, Elders Boysen and Ferrell, came. We had a boss awesome singing display and it was really fun to see that Elder Ferrell sang with gusto. I remember in Kosice it was a little hard to get him excited about singing displays. It was great to have extra voices but I do have to say our district is sooo musically inclined right now! The four of us all sing different parts and we blend so well!

    Our investigators are doing okay. One investigator is struggling a bit with church attendance. We asked her to pray about it and she offered a beautiful prayer at the end of our lesson asking to know what to do concerning Sunday conflicts. We called her Sunday morning and she said she wasn't coming. Sister Baird asked her about her prayer and she said she didn't get an answer. Sis B told her that when we're seeking guidance we should pray about it and also study the scriptures and commandments. We'll talk with her this week about receiving and recognizing answers from the Spirit. She's been following everything else with minimal struggle (like reading, praying, obeying the word of wisdom). 
       Sister Baird and I worked on directness this week. We had a few investigators, one in particular, who has the "all we need is love and faith" attitude. It's really hard to counter sometimes because, yes, we do need love and faith in Jesus Christ but we also have to follow the right path, the path Heavenly Father created. Sister Baird and I read the part in the Joseph Smith pamphlet right after the first vision, where Joseph is told to join none of the churches and we had the realization that God doesn't apologize nor sugar coat His words and right now we are representing Jesus Christ! We need to be bold and direct, but of course loving and tactful in the way we say things. I really think that's key to missionary work. There is only one true church and only one way to salvation and that is why we do missionary work.

     I love you all and I'm looking forward to skyping (on Mother's Day)!!
