Sharing My Testimony

We are trying to encourage the ward to help us find people we can teach and it is a really cool way to find people. We go in to member’s homes and share a short message about faith and testimony. Then, we share Moroni 10:4-5 and then encourage them to first pray about someone who the Lord has prepared for them.  When the Lord gives them a name, they figure out how to share their testimony with that person.  Everyone is at a different spot; some people can be invited to a dinner or BBQ, others to play games or maybe go to church or whatever. It is a really cool program.

So this week I had the great experience of listening to Elder L. Tom Perry, an apostle. He came here for a mission conference. He had a great message about how the election is creating talk about the Church and we need to take advantage of the opportunity by finding the people who are searching for the gospel and not wasting our time trying to convince people to believe. Pray that we can find those who are searching.  It was also cool to see all the missionaries that I new in the mission and in the MTC.

It has been a good week with everything. It looks like the work is progressing, so that is good!
