Today is going to have to be extra short unfortunately...
This week was awesome. We had Zone Conference in Helena on Tuesday
with Elder Wilford W. Andersen and his wife, it was amazing. We
learned so much and I wish I could just tell you all everything, but
I'll just cover up one of my favorite parts. We learned that we need
to focus on getting families to the temple through the gospel of Jesus
Christ. It's so exciting to imagine our investigators in temple
clothes! That's the goal, ETERNAL FAMILIES ARE THE VERY BEST THING
Speaking of families, Joel and Marilyn are still doing great! They are
going down to Utah this Tuesday to have their second interview, this
time with a general authority!!!! Mervin B. Arnold will be
interviewing them. This is a huge step, please pray for them.
So we don't have much time so I am going to write the next few
straight from the lesson reports.
Last week Brother and Sister Temple gave us a referral by the name of
Jim Neaves. We stopped by and his wife directed us to his shop behind
the house where he makes custom wooden bows. Jim was very friendly, he
let us in and showed us around his shop. He shared his beliefs with
us, and he started talking about his conviction on how the earth was
created in exactly six days. He started talking about The Flood,
Noah's Ark, Dinosaurs, and Adam. He is very knowledgable in the bible.
We shared a couple Book of Mormon scriptures with him from Alma 12 and
Helaman 5. We promised him blessings from reading the Book of Mormon,
even blessings for his family. We testified of the divinity of this
gospel and the restoration of it. We gave him a restoration pamphlet
and Book of Mormon, and invited him to read the introduction and
testimonies. He took it very well and demonstrated a willingness in
meeting with us again. Great guy!
We stopped in just to see if he would be interested in meeting with us
and he came out and had a conversation! We did a little fellowshipping
and then asked about his new baby. Both the baby and the mother are
doing well. We talked a little bit about the Plan of Salvation and how
that meant he could be with his newborn baby forever, that he would
never have to say goodbye. That seemed to touch him. We gave him and
pamphlet, invited him to pray and set up a time to come back. He
seemed so willing and interested.
And that's all the time I've got! Love you all!
Best district ever
