Elder Davis and I had a wonderful week. General Conference was awesome! I loved the beginning talk by Jeffery R. Holland. We must obey God's commandments. We cannot make excuses. Many churches are giving in to worldly pressures, we will never give in, we are the church of Jesus Christ and he never gave in to outside pressures, so neither can we. General Conference was just amazing. The spirit was very strong throughout it, now is the time to apply it though. We must live what was taught and never forget it. We must look out for the destructive danger of Pornography. That is a Big problem now today, I can testify of that.
It was also pretty awesome to get to see Elder Aidukiatus in General Conference, he is a really good man.
This week Elder Davis and I had a great opportunity to teach a lady named Lisa Ferrish. She is the Manager of an apartment complex. We taught her inside of her office and it was amazing. The spirit was strong and she told us that she believes everything that we taught her. Afterwards we went back to teach her on Friday and she had kept all of her commitments. We also set a date with her for the 20th of April. And she told us that she watched some of General Conference on her computer. Heavenly Father is preparing people, it is our job to find them.
We also had Zone Meeting this week. We had a man in our ward that used to be in our mission presidency speak, his name is President Pomeroy. He spoke on giving up our will to the father. It was very spiritual and inspiring and then we had a few more talks with some sisters and we spoke about how to be a successful missionary. Then, we sent all the missionaries on an easter egg hunt! It was so awesome and funny. But, in the end all of us left inspired to be better missionaries. I have some pictures but accidently left my camera at home so I will send them next week.
We were able to teach Lambris again. He continues to read and pray. He asked his dad if he could get baptized and he was told no. We will continue to work with him and the Lord will make up the rest. He is a good kid. He loves his Savior and wants to follow his example.
That's about it on investigators right now that are actually progressing that we are working with. We are focusing on finding, looking for those who are prepared. He is obviously providing like we see with Lisa.
We were able to go on an exchange on Friday with an Assistant. His name is Elder Wright. When we got together the Thursday night, he realized that he had the suit of an Elder that had to go home for medical reasons who was leaving later the next day. So, we had to drive all the way to Kingwood early in the morning. And, turn around and drive back for Zone Meeting. It was fun.
Anyways I had a great week and I hope that y'all did as well. Love y'all!
