Hello Folks!

This week was pretty stellar!

Writing Home

As a district, we did a competition as to who could get the most contacts in one week! It was crazy fun! It really showed everybody what they are really capable of. And, thanks to all of that fun, we were able to get lots of new contacts that will be turning into new investigators! And those new investigators will go to church, accept a baptismal date, and Boom! Converts in the church. Everything starts with the initial contact of a person.

Writing Home in Style

My comp and I went crazy, talking to people in the streets, knocking on doors, finding any way possible to do what we could to find people. One way that we were able to find new people was thanks to a member who we ate with. We shared them a spiritual thought and asked them for references of their friends or someone who could be ready to hear the message of the restored gospel. 

And, together, members and missionaries were able to think of people and how we can help those people. And THAT is how we get the work moving in the best way possible. The likelihood of a normal contact in the street being baptized versus a reference from a member is much, much lower. Members are invaluable, and the best way to help in missionary work.

I want to invite you all to to take the time to think of someone who could be ready for the gospel, and pass the name to the missionaries, and visit them with the missionaries. and you will see the results and feel the joy that comes from helping others come unto Christ. :)

Thank you for everything!

Elder Greenwood :)
