"I know that it doesn't matter if the person you try to teach doesn't commit to anything, it just matters if you're doing your best at inviting them to come unto christ."

Weekly Update 27 Feb 2012


It has been such a wonderful week here! The weather is picking up, the sun is shining and the gospel is true. What more could you need? I am in love with St. Helens it is a wonderful place with such great members. I am always full, because they always feed us here. So alot of this week I was in Southport on exchange with the District Leader I love exchanges because you learn so much and you really are able to grow from other missionaries. Southport seems like a great area, but I only have a few names engraved on my heart and St. Helens is one of those names. We had an alright Pancake day, without any actual pancakes. I woke up had exercise and tried to cook some pancakes, and apart from the fact that I forgot how to make pancakes it just wasn't the right time to cook pancakes, there just seems to be a time and a place for everything, as we learn in the scriptures, it wasn't the time to cook pancakes, I love cooking!

We had so much success on our exchange we received two new investigators in two hours, it was the best! I love teaching on the spot lessons to people on the streets, I would say it is one of the best feelings in the world just knowing that Heavenly Father has prepared people who are will just to sit down for a few minutes to know how they can strengthen there family, or what ever they may be interested in. This week seems to be the week were we just find and teach people on the streets, we found a man staring at an old ward memorial, he was a young man in his late 20s and we talked for a little bit, he was searching for answers and we provided him with those answers. We taught him about baptism and he asked us the best question of the week! He said "When can I get Baptized?" Isn't that just the best question every missionary wants there investigators to ask, because when he asked that... well just try and imagine my smile.

This week I've really been working on my urgency and I've discovered a great secret, "The greatest secrets of missionary work is work", when I run from door to door knocking on them... It really keeps my mind focused on the next one, there is no homesickness, there is no sadness only... helping the next person I can. This gospel is so true.

What a wonderful time it is to be a missionary!
