This week was tough. Trying to get the members involved and give us some references. Member references are GOLD!!! One of the hardest things we deal with as missionaries is making friendships with the members and investigators. But when we teach ppl from our members circle they alrady have a friend and all that jazz. MEMBER REFERENCES ARE GOLD!!! (if you want to make your local Elders happy give them a name and address and then invite your friend to your house for the lesson) and just see his face light up.
This week our ward got split even though i though our ward was small enough. Guess it was to big... (why is the annandale ward not split it's easily 4 times bigger than this old ward) So there was a member of the area 70 there. Elder Souza and I were doing our studies and we decided we needed to go visit the bishop see to see if he needed help and to get a list of less actives and part member families. We got their and THE WHOLE BISHOPRIC was their and they were just finishing a list of less actives and part member families to visit and bring back into actvity becasue our ward needs more priesthood power! So just another testimony builder for me of how involved the lord is in this work and in our lives.
Last week we tracted into a man named Lucas he's 22 but the awesome thing is that he and his friend Glaydson and Osmeal are all really religious and looking for the truth. RIght now Lucas was going to get baptized in another church but after meeting us he decided to see what our church is all about... he is dedicated this week to study the BOM and pray about it. so I'm kinda excited. The part thats even better is that they have a weekly bible study session with their friends we got invited! HAHAH time to convert.
Family and firands i know this is the church of Jesus Christ, it is the same church he established on the earth while he was here. All who honestly seek will come to that conclusion... because it is true. That's all for this week, love you all!!!!
