Flower Mound 3rd Ward
Elder Jacob Parsons
Transfers are this week and I am staying! I am excited and I am ready
to see the ball rolling in this area a lot more than it has been. I
will spend at least 6 months in this are when it is all said and done
and will hopefully have seen a baptism! I'll get to that later. Elder
Parsons and I will still be companions. Yay! So exciting!!!
Our area is really picking up! It was a great week and we have a great
week planned this week. We have a baptismal date set up and a few more
may be coming! Exciting things are happening in this ward. I am glad
that I am staying, we both get to move the work forward in this area.
I hope that it all goes well! I am starting to understand missionary
work on a deeper level.
Really there were only two exiting things that happened this past week
the first one is below. We did a lemonade stand! It was a hot 2 hours!
We gave away 5 cups of lemonade and 3 copies of the Book of Mormon!
That was pretty great! I wish that we would have had more cups given
away cause I mean seriously, it is FREE lemonade! Oh well, we gave
them copies of the Book of Mormon so that is a plus!!!!
This week we had an amazing lesson with a young man who ended up going
to the Denton YSA. When we found out that he lived there, we honestly
retried to figure out a way to have him stay here so we could teach
this super solid young man. However, we decided to have faith in the
principle of stewardships and got a handoff lesson with the Denton YSA
elders. During the lesson, we got two text messages. One from a
less-active woman who I actually met on my first day here in Flower
Mound. She was wanting a copy of the Book of Mormon for a patient. We
found out her concern about the church and invited her to pray, read
the Book of Mormon and this last General Conference. The other text
was a member in a different Ward letting us know about someone who he
feels is prepared to be taught and receive the gospel. We were so
happy when we found out! We biked over to where this referral lived,
we knocked on the door and he let us in. After a couple minutes of
getting to know him, we taught him about the love of the Savior and
how he knows us personally. How God loves us and how we can become
better and overcome trial that are put in our path. We set a return
appointment and promptly left. He seems like he is so wiling and
ready. It was a testimony to me about doing the right thing.
I don't have a spiritual thought developed for today so, I will post
"And again, believe that ye must repent of your sins and forsake them,
and humble yourselves before God; and ask in sincerity of heart that
he would forgive you; and now, if you believe all these things see
that ye do them."
Keep the Faith and Hurrah for Israel!
Love, your missionary son, Elder Jefferies
