This week was a good and a bad week. It was something of a bittersweet symphony. We had two baptism but we also had to cut a lot of the people that we were teaching because they did not want to continue doing the thing which we had asked them to complete. However, we did mark one baptism and we also found two family which I feel could have some great potential.
My companion and I are trying to take a new road on doing the work. It is kind of a pyramid skeem, but if it works out we will have to work less and we will get more results. We are trying to break the idea that their exists two church. The church of the missionaries and the church of the members. We are now trying to motivate the members in taking a proactive role in missionary work. We are now training them to speak to their friends family members who do not apart of the church, and we are teaching them how to place a Book of Mormon in their hands and giving chapters or a couple of verse to read. We are also trying to get people to mark family home evenings with their neighbors and friends and talking about the church in general. I hope that it gets some results. I feel like if these works the results will be at least three times bigger them what we are currently having.
I ask all of you to take note of what I just said, and try to start having missionary experiences. I remember when President Connolly asked that our stake to start praying to have missionary experiences and I believe that it gave great results for the missionaries and also for those who shared the gospel with those who do not know it.
I am doing well really well indeed. I got Amy's birthday package. Thanks Amy and Chris and Amelia and lets not forget Olivia.
I am still waiting on the others, but I believe that I will get them here soon.
I am doing really well, and I love you all and I hope to talk to you all soon.
