Elder Holland, Baptism, Zone Conference "Great Week"
Well things here have been chaos. We have Elder Holland coming which ia a big priority. This past week we had our Zone Conference also a baptism. Our potential investigator didn't work out he flamed us (dissapointed look) but thats missionary life. You get people and lose people just as fast. But the key is to just keep on working, because sooner or later people will except the gospel, only if the seed was planted. So that is what you need to look at while serving. Baptisms do come but not all at once, work is required!

Last week was a great week. We just had Elder Holland come and talk to us. He is a really short guy. A lot shorter then I was picturing him. haha. It was really cool to shake his hand and met him in person.But man does that man know how to Talk. He's words were also very inspiring.He told us as missionaries that we are apostles. Not the capital A Apostle with Keys but the lower case a apostle. We have the ability to work and expand Heavenly Fathers Church. We have been working hard at getting better he said but we are still only at 207 degrees (before boiling) we need to move it up to 210 degrees and will boil over because of how many ready people there are. He talked a lot about hastening the work of Salvation. Not just missionary work. But the Hastening of ourselves. If we are not hastening ourselves then we are falling behind and it will be even harder to catch up. That is all from Holland this week I will write more about it later. Then we worked and got closer and closer to getting a new investigator. That is our goal to get at least one this transfer. But Christian our investigator is growing but slowly. He is skeptical that he will get an answer. But he is wanting to get an answer.
