A lot of weird things have been going on this week. We've barely been
able to make contact with our investigators this week.
We finally were able to get in to see B Sister this week. Apparently
she and her mom would like to listen to us but her uncle just passed
away. Her mom just had some sort of surgery and isn't up for visitors or
company over at their home. We were able to see them in person though and
they're both excited to hear our message.
We've been teaching the C family a lot this week. The parents are very inactive. Their children have not been baptized so we teach them as a part member family.
They've had a tone of crazy stuff happen and have had past drama in the Ward.
It's awesome though because you can see they really want to become
activated again and ultimately want to be married in the temple with
their children. We've been seeing step by step their progression.
They're reading and are trying to pray every night. We're going to see
if we can get them to church this Sunday.
We haven't been able to get into see the other sister this week. She doesn't have
a cell phone and has all sorts of crazy stuff that have happened. The
other F family were out of town this week to go to Tuscon I think. We are
meeting with the B family this week. They were investigators in
another stake but have since moved into our Ward so we've been picking
up where the other missionaries left off. One of the daughters is a
member of the church and her parents, sister, and now her friend are
interested in learning more.
I'd say the most difficult part of missionary work that I've seen here
in Mesa is maintaining contact with investigators since everyone is so
busy going to school or working in different parts of Phoenix. One of
the worst things here is when missionaries do street contacting or
tracking and the people they talk to are members, but some members
pretend not to be members and act totally interested and excited to
Don't have much time left but I wanted to say how awesome it's been to
be on a mission. I've seen time and time again how the Lord looks out
for me and is always aware of my thoughts and feelings. I'm really
beginning to learn how to obtain answers to my prayers. I've really
come to learn how the gospel can help each of us EXACTLY as we need
it. That's the beauty of the gospel that makes it so simple yet so
powerful and dynamic. I'm grateful for the chance that I have to be
able to have this chance to tell other people what I have to say about
Love you all. Thank you for all your prayers and support.
Ik hou van jullie!
