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.
