3 Nephi 27:3-8

Lot's of Driving and meetings this week! On Tuesday we drove all the up to Fort Wayne (2 hours away) and Elder Millett fell asleep so it was me and the open fields and a bunch of conference talks! It was a great time to reflect and think!

When we got to Fort Wayne we had a New Missionary training that President Welch put on. He talked a lot about mastering your thoughts. I believe this is key when it comes to life.

We slept over in Fort Wayne and stayed in the Zone Leaders Apartment.... Elder Thorne is the Zone leader there!!! So I got to talk and hang out with him! He is such a great example to me!!

The next day was Zone Conference and it was full of great useful information! We had a lesson that started at 6pm that night and we realized we were going to be cutting it real close so we safely sped home. We made it in time for the lesson but the guy wasn't there! :( So we went out in the car to decided what we wanted to do. The options were: Go get dinner, do area book indexing, or try to see some other people. For some reason I felt like we should go see some other people. Even though I was super hungry. I said a little prayer and decided to get to work. The first house we knocked on said to come back another time. Then we walked down the street to try another potential investigator. We knocked on the door and the guy yelled, "go to the back door" So we did. When we walked to the back door the guy asked, "what do you want?" We said who we were looking for and asked if he was still interested in the message we share. The guy told us to wait and he went inside. Then came back out and told us we were welcome to come in. We went in and sat down and realized that the whole family was interested in the message, so we taught them about the restoration of the Gospel! It was so cool that we sacrificed our dinner time and God blessed us with something to do and someone to teach! Sacrifice brings forth blessings

Another story:

We took Nikki (Mountain Dew Lady) on a chaple tour this week to get her familiar with the church. As we did she didn't say much. At the end we asked her what she thought and she told us she liked it and she plans on coming this week. The next day we got a text that told us that she wanted to go to a Christian church so she will not be attending our church. I started to get pretty depressed because she was so ready! I texted back and asked her if we could give her a call and she said she was out of minutes. So I then asked her what her concerns were. She said that her concern was that she wanted to go to a Christian church. I could tell that wasn't her only concern. But addressed it anyways. I did this by telling her that We, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are Christians. I then bore my testimony to her about how the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and if we read it, ponder the message it contains, and ask God with real intent (willing to act on the promptings we receive) then he will give us an answer! Her heart was softened and she told us that she would be at church on Sunday to find out if the Church is true!.... but church got canceled due to bad roads!! :( :( but she will be coming next week!

The Church of Jesus Christ of latter day Saints is a Christian church. With Jesus Christ himself at the head of it! It is His church! I would challenge all of you to stop calling it the Mormon church, because it is not "Mormons" Church it is Christ's and it has been restored to the earth again by our loving Father in Heaven through a living Prophet. If you don't believe me then read the Book of Mormon it truly is the evidence of this restoration! Joseph Smith was called to be a prophet and translate this book by the gift and power of God to what we have today. You can hold it in your hands, you can read and soak in the pages, as you do this you should ponder the message it contains, and ask the Father of all knowledge, even our Father who is in Heaven if it is true. Those who pursue this course will gain a GREATER witness of Jesus Christ and will come to know that the Book of Mormon is the Word of God... When this happens you will have a desire to change your ways to be more inline with Gods will and plan for you, and when you are more inline with Gods will I can promise you, that you will find greater measure of joy in life!

Love you all!
