Hey there family and friends,
This week has been pretty good and we have had some good successes and a lot of referrals coming in from the ward. I think i can attribute that all to the efforts that we have been putting into training/inviting the members to really pray and look for people to share the gospel with. It has been a really fun and productive area so far and I really hope i can be here with Elder Shannon at least one more transfer. we hopefully have 2 solid baptisms coming up. I say hopefully because one doesn't quite live in the mission yet but has plans on moving in soon. we are duke-ing it out with pres to be able to teach her here until then. I hope it all goes well.
We have a bunch of people to teach now after a lot of work. It feels way nicer to worry about what to teach rather than where the heck were gonna find people to teach. haha. It was extra difficult, seeing as our brains were fried most the time from the over 100 degree weather. The heat has been killer but we put our shoulder to the wheel and got a bunch of people to visit. This week has definitely gone by faster and felt easier too.
Well, this week i heard some cool talks that kinda made me decide i have to vote. i heard them in this order. the first one was henry b eyring in the 2010 october 4th session Trust in God, and then go and the second one was President Monson, the 3 R's of choice in that same priesthood session. If you listen to them you will feel the same.
Well, really not much is new since the last Wednesday, just another day, another blessing.
I love you all and wish the best of luck to all you rm's out there, just don't forget what your purpose is and the lord will take care of all the rest.
Elder Channing E. Winterrose
