The Ministry Machine

Good news Elder Hull and I are both staying. Although my whole district is leaving me. All four sisters are getting transfered and 4 Elders are coming in. I will definitely miss the sisters, but am excited at the new opportunity to serve other missionaries.This week has been a great week. We are preparing for Alyssa (13) to get baptized this Saturday and that is all going really well. We taught her the word of wisdom this week and she had no idea about coffee and tea. Fortunately she is already living it, and hasn't had either for 2 months. So that won't be hard for her to give up. She is moving right along and it's cool to see her little budding testimony grow as she keeps the committments we leave with her. Marcia is doing great we had a lesson with her on Wednesday of this last week and it was all about missionary work and why it's so important. Marcia is going to/already has been a great missionary. Investigators and Recent cnverts can be a gold mine, because they have a lot of friends outside of the church. It is great to see the whole ward get more excited about missionary work, because of Marcia's example. On Thursday there was a big long meeting with Elder Malm of the seventy and that was simply incredible. I absolutley loved it and learned so much. I am still swallowing everything he said. He gave me a new perspective on all of the people we talk to. He said they are all "yes" sayers, and that is really the only option. We have a standing "no" from them, and when they reject us they are just confirming that "no" that we already had. They all said "yes" they would come here to this life and so everyone we meet are all "yes" sayers. Then we met with Terri on Friday and we had a great lesson about baptism and concerns she has and we set her with a baptismal date for November 29. Terri has been investigating for a year, and this is a really big step for her to set a goal for baptism. She has a few things to overcome and she wanted her daughter to be there so that is the soonest she felt confortable doing it. This week has just been a fantastic week full of miracles. I am glad to have another transfer here and I olny expect more miracles to come. Thank you all and have a fantastic day.
