"Hello hello hello!
HOLY COW! General Conference was AMAZING. I learned sooo much. I'm so excited to begin implementing the things I learned. This last week was fantastic! We are really trying hard to become more like the Savior. We are trying to find with Faith, and Listen to the Holy Ghost in how we should go about serving the Lord's Children here in the Berwick Ward. I sure have loved serving here with Elder Andersen, and I am so very very excited to be serving with him for another transfer. I really love him, and I want him to succeed here.
I really have had many prayers answered concerning Elder Andersen. We really want to work hard here. Which is something I love and cherish. Elder Andersen has a powerful desire to serve with all of his heart. Which has truly helped me to seek knowledge, to be knowledgeable, and then to apply. I sure love serving here with Elder Andersen. I am very privileged to be serving with him for another transfer. I love him.
Heavenly Father has truly answered so many of my prayers. I love Him, especially for the answers I do not see yet. I love Him.
Our area has been making slow progress, but better progress. We really want to focus on Less Actives and finding new Investigators through formers and potentials as well as contacting 10 new people each day. We have not done terribly well at it, but we will repent and do better.
I love the Lord, I know He truly Lives. We have had many Spiritual blessings in helping others come unto Christ. I learned that we must be COURAGEOUS and bold. We must Love in full discipleship.
Last night we went to contact a former investigator, Her friends were home, Christine and her husband Derren. They listened in a little as we spoke briefly. Little did we know that Christine was the daughter of a preacher and has a vast knowledge of the Savior. We kept speaking with her. Elder Andersen began leaving the door, but I knew better than leaving without an invitation left. I stood my ground and
Later that night while leaving, we had placed 2 Book of Mormons, and received their willingness to learn more. We didn't give up even after that, we stayed a little longer. We ended up talking about the Lord, and the need for missionary work. We almost received 2 referrals that night. Only held back because of her own unsurety of her parents receptiveness. It was beautiful, miracles do happen. I know it. We just need to be courageous, and stick around long enough to let people have a chance at the Gospel.
Brothers and Sisters, The Gospel is true. The Plan of Happiness is REAL. We have the Gospel again! The world 's cure for it's darkness and lack of pure love, Is here. It is with us. It is in our love for others, it is in our love for the Savior, It is in those 3 hours of church, and in those hours we use to serve and perform our callings. It is in the Book of Mormon you don't read that is sitting in your living room as household decoration. You heard me, read it ;) haha.
The Gospel of pure joy, love and peace is HERE! WE HAVE IT! Oh goodness! How happy and joyful I am that we get to listen to the Lord's Prophet and His Apostles, and Teachers. HOLY COW I love this Church. I love it sooooooooooooooooooo much. I want to work my butt off and forever live worthy of the companionship of the Holy Ghost. I love Him, and I want to make Him Proud. I love you all : Thank you for your prayers and encouragement and love. I'm praying for you all, that we may succeed, and that we will not be sifted as wheat in the "whirlwinds of this world" :) As humbly, as I can possible muster. I testify, that the Lord Jesus Christ, lives and he loves us, may we all remember this beautiful truth. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Here's some pictures! I love conference, and this is what we look like when Elder Andersen drives!
