Elder Ballard


Hi everybody! Hope your week was awesome!
Last week was amazing! We had a lesson with Brittany, an investigator that we found last week, and it went great! We found out that she is YSA age so we had the YSA elders come with us to do a hand-off lesson.  She asked some great questions and at the end of the lesson she committed to be baptized on May 7th! Even though we won’t be teaching her anymore it still feels great to have found someone who is ready for the gospel.
On Saturday we got to have three meetings with Elder Ballard!!! Our mission president is the son of Elder Ballard so we get to see him a lot. He gave an amazing talk on the restoration and how important it is to have the priesthood. I think that shows just how important the message of the restoration is. If an apostles chooses to share that message with members and nonmembers at a fireside it must pretty darn important. When he spoke to just the missionaries we all got the chance to shake his hand. It was such a spiritual experience to be able to hear from him in such a personal setting.
I know that this church is true and that it is lead by Jesus Christ through prophets and apostles. I know that if we listen to what they say we will be able to find more peace and comfort in this life and in the life to come. I know that Jesus Christ lives and that he appeared with the Father to Joseph Smith and called hm to restore their gospel. I know that Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon by the power of God and it is here for us today.
I love you all and I hope you have a great day!
