Completely Exhausted

Another Great week! It is just the best feeling getting to sunday night and being completely exhausted from the weeks work! 

This past week we had interviews with President Dunn. It was awesome to get to know him better. He gave me a few new ideas for finding some new people. We are going to make a big poster about Family History and at red lights we are going to walk to all the cars and hand out the new Genealogy pamphlets. I am pumped to be able to try that out.

We also had zone meeting this past week. We talked about Using our Time wisely and Working with Members. From Using our time wisely we discussed from the 3rd bullet point under comp study on PMG page 152. We talked about how our line needs to be in the water the moment we leave the flat. From working with members we discussed how we can gain their trust. It is just as important, if not more, than even gaining trust from Investigators. We talked about ammon and how we really need to focus on doing that through service! 

The area is going pretty well. We are having to drop some more people and it has been a struggle to find new investigators. At church yesterday though the Lord blessed us!! We had a husband and wife and another lady show up that had seen the church and felt like they needed to stop by!! I am so grateful for that tender mercy! 

For the last stage of faith it is the Fullness of all things! It is the point where our faith and our confidence in the Lord is so strong that we cannot be kept within the veil! (Ether 12:19) In the 2 Peter 1:3-10 it talks about all the characteristics we need to acquire to get to the point where we can receive that blessing! In D&C 93:1 it says what we need to do as well and that we can "See his face and know that He is." It is something that requires our whole self and it is my goal in this life! 

I love you!
