Week 93: The savior said, "Ye are the light of the world.

This week was a great week. We had a lot happen the crowning moment
being two baptisms on Saturday the 9th of Sage Wilson and Britney
Wilson. They were joined by their 8 year old brother Tyler Wilson.
Their father baptized them and elder Barney confirmed them. We had
many great experiences in teaching as well. We taught Cindy about the
word of wisdom. She is returning to activity and wants to quit
smoking. She's made it five days so far on the stop smoking program.
We also got back in with Roy an investigator who is desiring to read
the Book of Mormon again after we testified of the restoration of the
gospel. We've been led to many people who need to see us with
spontaneous ideas coming to mind from the Holy Ghost on who we need to
see and where we need to be.


On preparation day last week we played dodgeball and also some
Yahtzee. It was fun to relax and take some time to reflect on the
week. I am learning how to use the iPad a lot better as I ask Heavenly
Father for help every day to help me learn the area and also learn how
to use the iPad. It is not an instantaneous solution. It comes over
time and I am learning a lot on how to do different things.

After a long day once we were able to continue tracking despite our
tiredness and ran into John who said we could come back and share a
message with him. He doesn't have a current church and is willing to
read from the Book of Mormon. We also have been blessed to be teaching
a lesson with a less active member and the. A non-member friend or
family member shows up to hear the message of the restoration. These
are the best finding moments.


Things are going great here. There is a lot of potential. We have many
great things lined up for the future. Zone training meeting is
tomorrow so we should have a great experience there. We also got
interviewed for the first and the last time by president Mecham today
and we had a great conversation.


I am constantly reminded by the wonderful example of members here and
elsewhere that the only way for people to gain understanding of our
church and overcome misconceptions is through the example of members.

The savior said, "Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on
a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under
a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are
in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see
your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." Matthew
5:14-16
