Member Missionary Work

Hi Mom and Dad!

That is sooooo awesome! I can’t believe how much success you guys are seeing from just sharing the gospel at all times! That’s what we are trying to get the members to do here!  We have lots of visual aids and fun lessons to get the members excited about sharing the gospel, because not much really ever happens until the members start talking to people! :)

I’m not surprised so many people know Jess.  There was a family in my last ward like that, everybody knew that family and it made it easier to talk about it when we knew that that family was a good example and would always be willing to help in any way they could.  There was a member here in White Rock who was doing the same thing that you are, just talking about the church, at the dentist’s office and now she is meeting with the Elders in the next town over! It’s so exciting! 

There was a family who signed up to feed us today, but they got called out of town unexpectedly, and instead of cancelling, she marched over to the neighbors (Who are not members) and asked them to feed us :)  That is so awesome! Tonight we have a meal with a non-member couple!

Yes! Always follow up! Go into McDonalds again. Find her and make a point of talking :) Have you read the Ensign this month? There is a good article about sharing the gospel. You should read it.

Today, we were going to go down to this farm and go pig riding, haha! I have no idea how you ride a pig. I guess we will have to wait for pictures :) but it was too far away, so now we are just going to go to the science museum in Los Alamos.  Should be exciting. Science museum in the most sciency town in all of the world.

The progress with Paz and her family is Amazing! Since grandpa is mostly deaf, we can’t exactly have a full lesson with him, so we do Monday night movies :)  Last night we watched the Testaments.  Everyone loved it!  And Paz sat in the room and actually asked questions.  She loves my companion. All I know is she better not leave, because I’m afraid that I won’t be able to keep Paz interested like my comp can...  Do you know of any other church movies that show the Bible and Book of Mormon side by side like the testaments?  They all really liked that.

Tonight bible study is on Humility.  We are planning on doing a puzzle where each person has a piece and they have to work together to get it all finished.  But in the end they need to come to us to get the final piece :) 

Nope, no crazy driving experiences yet, hopefully it will stay that way.  Tomorrow is exchanges.... I’m a little nervous.

Love you!
