week has been good and weird at the same time. Its been good we have
kept busy. Its just weird because Elder Erickson is saying good bye to a
lot of people. I am staying super focused though. So my new companion
is Elder Simister!!!!! He is a great missionary. I know him really well
and we are pretty good friends. I am so excited. We are going to work
work work. Elder Simister had a scholarship for basketball he played
basketball for Dixie state University. There is a huge group of Filipinos that play basketball outside around 7:00 they will be amazed!
We met with Denise Freisen who is a returning less active that we have been working with. We taught her on Friday
and we had Brother Larson with us. We watched the restoration with her
and then we got in the topic of God, and heaven and hell. And the
lessons was kinda of going all over. But then Brother Larson mentioned
about temple work and why we do it, so everyone can be taught the gospel
and receive the ordinances as well. And her eyes got all big and she
started balling and balling. She said she was struggling about the
temple. She didn't know why it was important she said she felt the spirit
so strong!! It was an amazing experience for all of us. Her and her son
came to church and the spirit is really working on her.
Speaking of church......One of our companionship goal before Elder Erickson left was to have 30 people at out meeting. Well yesterday
WE HAD 30 PEOPLE ATTEND OUR MEETING. We had 6 investigators and a less
active family. The stake president heard the news and is making an
appointment with Brother Valdez to start talking about Steinbach and
where to go from here and what the next steps need to be.
the work is real
Love all of you so much:)
