It has been another great week here in Arizona. The work is going great! We only met with our golden investigator once this week because of he was working some long hours this week. He works for an air conditioning company and this is their busy season. We had to move his baptism date back so we have enough time to teach him all the lessons. We met with him on Saturday and he came to church on Sunday. He loves coming to church and learning. Transfers are this week and Elder Jewkes and I are both staying in the area.
We also had a great lesson with one of our new members this week. We are teaching the new member lessons. We taught the Gospel of Jesus Christ this week. We had their neighbors come who are also their home teacher and her visiting teacher. The lesson went really well and there were a lot of great testimonies and comments. It's amazing what happens as we learn and accept the Gospel! Later that same night we ended up teaching our neighbor in the apartments the restoration. He is not interested in joining the church, but we were able to answer several of his questions. We see him several times a week and all the missionaries that live right there know him.
We had some great lessons this week with investigators, new members and less actives. We also went to the temple this week which is always great! We also went to a fireside last night and I was able to see some recent converts from my last area. I'm excited to stay in this area another transfer.
Thanks for all of your prayers. It's great to be here on a mission. It's amazing how much we learn every day. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is beautifully simple but we continue to learn more and more every time we study and teach. I'm really enjoying reading the Book of Mormon and highlighting everything that has to do with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I love you all so much! Have a great week!
