Its been a while since I have hear from a lot of you. Hope things are going well for you!
So this week was pretty rough for us. We tried so many people and no one was answering their doors. We were only able to teach 6 lessons in total but we did have a few people at church and we just keep getting a bunch of referrals from other missionaries. Even though it was a hard week and we didn't teach very many lessons, the lessons that we did have were pretty good. A less-active family that we are working with came to church after years of inactivity. The mom of the family had been kind of cold to the church for a while but something touched her and we were able to talk with her and she expressed a desire to come to church. Unfortunately she works on sunday at the same time church is. Hopefully now that she has a desire to come to church, something can get worked out so she can come to church as well. We are hoping and praying that this week will be better and that more people will be available to talk this week.
So funny thing happened on Friday. We had zone conference with the Richland zone and when we walked into the chapel there was a cardboard cut out of President Ware with a thumbs up standing behind the pulpit. One of the missionaries had gotten as kind of a joke but it was pretty funny to all of us. It surprised President Ware pretty good when he walked in.
I just want to say how grateful I am to be a missionary and to be able to share the everlasting gospel with the people here in washington. I know that what we share is true because I know the book of mormon is true. Joseph Smith was a prophet and was called to restore the gospel in these latter days. I know that the mysteries of God are still being revealed and there is more to be revealed. Our Heavenly Father has not ceased talking to his children and especially to his prophets. The scriptures contain the revelations to the prophets of old and apply to our lives today. We have a prophet on the earth right now that receives revelation for us now and when he speaks as a prophet, he is speaking the words of the Lord. I am grateful for that and for the confirmation the spirit speaks to my heart that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet today.
Have a great week and I hope to see some letters soon!
