Hi Everyone,
This past week was pretty normal. It was just one of those weeks where you feel like you're doing a lot but not seeing many fruits from your labors. We had a lot of appointments that fell through and every door we knocked was another no. It's been a slow week, not much going on. We have people we are teaching, but you can't teach those people every single day. Near the end of the week and yesterday it picked up.
On Saturday we went to go to a trailer park to tract. We prayed for success and got some! We got 3 return appointments. We are looking forward to see what may come from it.
At 3rd Ward ward council we reported on our week and people were impressed with what we have accomplished. There we found the fruit of our labors. We received information from the people at the meeting that other people were effected, in a good way, by the work we had done. For instance, we were knocking on doors in a neighborhood and we came across Jennette. Jennette is in her late 40's and, as we later found out, is good friends with our ward mission leader, Bro. Riley. She is Episcopalian but said we could come by and practice our lessons. She then later Facebook messaged Bro. Riley and asked if he had sent us. When she found out that he didn't she told him that we were welcome to come by any time and share the lessons. It looks promising!
This week I focused a lot of my studies around faith. In a talk from President Eyring he says "If the foundation of faith isn't in our hearts, then the power to endure crumbles." Therefore, we need to go forward with faith!
I hope that everyone had a good week and has a good upcoming week! I miss and love y'all.
