Well guys. No group email this week because Louisa is home. Thanks to everyone who has been reading her blog, emailing her, writing to her! I know she appreciated it all!
She got home yesterday afternoon, and yesterday morning our brother Samuel went out to serve his mission in the Canada Edmonton Mission. Anybody wanting updates on Samuel or just to see what’s happening, his blog is Sam’s Mission Blog
Not too many emails left to go now! She will be back in about 6 weeks!
I hope you have all been able to have a great week and keep soaking up
the wonderful general conference messages. Every time I read them I
get something different out of them. I love the prophet! This week was
good, we got to go out and visit more pueblos and share the gospel in
areas that well haven’t seen missionaries for years. It was kind of a
neat feeling. I guess that’s how the pioneer missionaries felt. Except
their rejection was way tougher than the one we face.
We have been Chalking in the park again this week and it’s great, I
wish I had done it before in my mission. We’ve been chalking adverts
for English class all over the place and so we will see if it works
and people come this week. Cross fingers.
A really big blessing we had this week was teaching one of our new
friends Michelle, that’s an English name you’re right, because…she
lives in California! Thanks to the new technology we are able to teach
one of Hermana Nelsons friends from back home about the gospel. She
reached out to us and asked to receive the lessons so we will be
having the blessing of teaching her until she is ready to meet with
local missionaries in her area!
We also had another huge miracle this week. We have been really
struggling to find new investigators to teach that are able to
progress, that don’t work all the time and can come to church and have
interest. And so we were fasting and praying and on Sunday we woke up
feeling it would be a really good day. And it was. We had some
surprises investigators come to church and then bishop called us out
of gospel principles to meet a woman that has many relatives who are
members. She is going through a hard time and wants to hear the
message so she came to find the church. It was such a testimony to us
that when we work diligently all day everyday and can’t always see the
fruits of our labours that our Heavenly Father sends us blessings go
straight from heaven. I am so grateful to still be a part of this
The church is true. Thomas s Monson is a prophet of God and he leads
and guides us through revelation. I know Joseph smith restored the
church and that the Book of Mormon contains the answers to the
questions of our souls. I love you all so very much and if you have
any questions don’t hesitate to get in touch!
Have a wonderful week!
All my love,
