Oh ye wicked generations!

So this week was pretty great. At the beginning it was kind of sad as
we dropped a few of our investigators at the beginning of this week.
They were super cool, but didn't want to accept the existence of God.
It was super sad as they were kind of elect, but chose to deny the
spirit. We didn't have a lot of success on Tuesday except for a lesson
with the Alvarez family. The Hermano is a member supposedly and it is
cool as he loves the church, but has kind of been alienated by it.

We also were able to have a worldwide missionary broadcast. We were
able to listen to the missionary department and learn about our new
purpose. It is Teaching Repentance daily to baptize converts monthly.
It talked a lot about being focused in helping them feel the Holy
Ghost. It was very enlightening as I feel like we have been lacking
direction in the mission for a while. It was really nice as I felt
like now I can properly address the needs of the people. We are now
able to see that we can build and construct with the members together.

We also had the opportunity to help the members this Thursday as well
as we did another iron rod activity, which was fun. We were able to
teach them members that they need to continually hold fast in their
righteous habits to reach the end. It was even better as the weekend
approached as we had the area seventy came to our stake conference. We
were able to do a role play with him and our branch president. It
brought a lot of light to how we can receive help from the members.

While he was here he repeatedly called people to repentance. We are
spiritually awake, but we know that many of the members are saying
"all is well in Zion." It really actually made me angry the other day
as we tried to use the role play that the seventy taught us as at a
members house. They didn't do so well, but I don't know if it was my
fault or not. It just makes me want to better all the blessings we
receive. It is great to be God's servant.

Anyways I am going to go play volleyball now.

Love from your dragon,
