Hope you have had a great week!
This week was really long but really fast at the same time. We found a new investigator with a lot of potential. When we found him, he told us that he goes to church but he doesn't really get anything out of it and feels like it doesn't help him very much and he wants to go to a church that helps him get closer to Christ and where he learns more. We have planned to see him tonight and we are excited to see what kind of progress he will make in the coming weeks. Also we have been finding some really good potentials that want to learn more and want to read from the Book of Mormon. Its amazing to see the difference between the people that are prepared and those that are not. The Lord really is preparing people to receive the gospel at this time.
So on Friday we had a zone conference with Elder Arnold of the Seventy. I had a leadership session with him at 7:30 in the morning and then it went from there until 2:30 in the afternoon and I felt sad when it was over because I wanted more. He talked a lot about working with the ward councils and the members to do our finding. Also he talked a lot about being stronger with the commitments that we extend.
We were also supposed to go to Othello for a spanish conference with Elder Arnold as well but it started snowing and they decided not to let us go. I attached a picture of the snow the next day. It was inspired because it took us a long time just to get back to Brewster and it would have been even worse at 9:00 at night.
Something that I want to do better that Elder Arnold suggested is to FEAST from the scriptures. He turned his scriptures around to show us his marking and it was completely covered in notes. He said he spent 6 weeks on 3 Nephi 11 and 12 weeks on 3 Nephi 12. The scriptures contain so much knowledge and truth but our loving Heavenly Father allows us to grow our faith by searching pondering and praying.
Have a great one! and hope to hear from you soon! Happy thanksgiving!
