Hey Everyone!! Happy Birthday Kyson!
Also have we heard if I am going to have another niece or nephew?
Well Dad to give you an idea what we eat like, this week 3 out of the last 7 meals we have had were T-bone steaks with them!!! haha How do you like that Steve!!
And mission prep did help alot, but something that would help more would be to make the role-play harder. Then make them have to really think and try to get to know the person they are teaching and discern by the Spirit and ask Heaven sent questions. The Lord knows what they need to be asked and then they are more likely to open up to you? Also use the Book of Mormon and the Bible to study and know how to use both. But these are somethings I have learned that would have helped me more and will help them out! Also, make sure they are not afraid of silence cause that is when the spirit works the best!
Well yes we had an apostle come this week, it was Elder Cook who came and before the meeting started he ask for every missionary to come up and shake his hand and have a 2 seconded interview with him and through the spirit he will be able to tell what kind of missionary you are!! So thats kind of cool!
Well the meeting went well and he talked about how we need to really let the people we teach know that the Lord loves them very much! Also he said the church took a survey on what people remember when they took lessons from missionary's. Well 90% of these people remember the 1st vision and the plan of salvation the best! But he was a little mad when he found out in our mission members don't really help the missionary and about 70% of our findings in this mission are from tracting. He said the missionary should not have to plan anything after dinner that should be all the members doing that and that we are here to teach most the time and not be finding people most the time. But he was happy about how well we are doing even though we are trying to find most of our work.
Well this week was a great week we found 3 new investigators to teach and 2 of the 3 said that they would get baptized after the 1st lesson so we just have to keep teaching them and set them with a date and see if they accept. Me and Elder Torres both prayed and thought about it and we are going to invite them to be baptize on October 10th, four days before the end of this transfer! But we will see how that will go, we will see them on Wednesday at 7pm! (Wednesday is our crazy day!) Also we are still working with A_ and he is 5 days and going without drinking and he came to church which was great to see him there cause it was fast and testimony meeting! Well it has been a great week and tomorrow is my 2 month mark! Whoa time fly's!!!
Love you all Elder Urry
