I hope everyone has had a good couple of weeks. Sorry for not writing last week. That was my bad. Anyways, the weather is still on the incline, but today took a turn for the worse. It's like 50 degrees and cloudy. It's pretty unfortunate considering the past weeks have been beautiful. I'm sure it won't stay this way though!
This week was pretty good. Last week was good too. We taught like, my mission record number of lessons last week, and this week we shot for last weeks success, but we didn't quite get there. On the bright side, we found 3-4 families, and one of those families decided they would be baptized when they found out the church was true. They're pretty positive and almost came to church this week, but they had a reasonable excuse stand in the way - but they're coming next week! We're meeting with them this week, so hopefully once they come to church, we'll be able to put them on baptismal date. Other than that, we're still picking up new investigators and we find a potential about everyday. Things are going in the right direction still!
This week, we spent P-day on the beach by the airport! I took one pic... Surprise! An airplane. You can see that at the end.
There was a scripture this week that stuck to me. It's D&C 90:24. It says, "Search diligently, pray always, and be believing, and all things shall work together for your good, if ye walk uprightly and remember the covenant wherewith ye have covenanted one with another." It hit me that we have to be searching for the answers to the problems we've been having. We can't just pray, we have to act by searching and believing. It's after the trial of our faith where we receive our reward. Remember that all will work together for our good if we follow this simple but powerful principles.
I love you all and thanks for your emails each week. They really do help! :)
