This week was amazing! Elder Hanks and I are really coming to love the ward, and the work is still picking up. We found two new families with lots of potential, and it was an amazing experience getting to share the Restoration with them, and the Spirit was so strong when we testified of the truths of the Restored Gospel.
The first family lives right across the street from Bishop, and they are so nice! They let us right in, and committed to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it. *fingers crossed!*
The second family lives on the same street, and their relatives are members. They let us in, and had tons of questions about the church and what we do as missionaries, and it was a great time getting to know them.
We also met with our investigator ‘D’ and shared the parable of the sower from the Bible, and talked about faith and committed him to read Alma 32 and read the Book of Mormon every night and pray about it, so that will be interesting to see how he does with that. Please pray for him!
Other than that, we had a training meeting this week in preparation for Zone Conference next week, which will be the first Zone Conference with President Clark. I’m excited to see what will happen and who will be there, because since he has been here, we have had a lot of General Authorities visit the mission. We always have to be on our toes now! Never know when a member of the Seventy is going to walk around the corner!
Well, that’s pretty much been my week, still going strong and loving this California heat! kinda…
Love you, miss you,
Elder Jon Peter Ahlstrom
