Week #16 -- Worldwide Missionary Broadcast

Hello everyone,

Hope you all have had a wonderful week. And that all is well.

So last night and this morning have been crazy. Around 11 last night
my companion, Elder Wilson, woke me and said he was having a lot of
pain in his side and it was just getting worse. So I took him to the
emergency room and found out that he had a kidney stone. We didn't get
home till a little after 4:30 this morning. Ya that was crazy.

Anyway this week was really good. Still working with two investigators. It's exciting with one of them because we will have more time with him before he leaves for New York and hoping we will be able to put him on a date. The other we have is progressing more and it's very exciting. We have been getting more people to talk to but haven't gotten return appointments with them yet but holding we will this week.

One really cool thing that happened was that there was a worldwide missionary broadcast. So all the missionaries in the world watched this broadcast. A handful of the quorum of the 12 apostles spoke to us and gave us a better understanding of how to progress the work in the areas we are serving in. The one I love the most is was from Elder Bednar. He spoke on the importance of the Holy Ghost in someone's conversion. I know now more the importance and the urgency to have the Holy Ghost with us when we are sharing the gospel with others. There is nothing I can say that will convert someone but it's what they feel as the Holy Ghost testifies of truth.

I know that this is the lords work and we all have a part in it. Whether or not we are full time missionaries. We are instruments in gods hands to help others to come unto Christ.

I love you all and hope you have a great week.
