Our Purpose as Missionaries
Hi everybody! I hope that you all had a great week! Last week was pretty good for Elder Palmer and me. We found three new investigators! It was awesome! We tracted into two of them and one of them just came up and asked us about the Book of Mormon! He seems like he really wants to learn more and we are very excited to teach all three of them!
Our investigator with a date is still on for August 6th! We are a little worried because she didn’t come to church on Sunday but she still seems excited about everything. We have a lesson with her this Thursday so we will be able to talk with her more about it.
One of the frustrating things that happened this week was we had to drop 4 of our investigators. None of them have answered their phones or their doors for weeks so we had to drop them and move on. It makes me sad how people take the gospel so lightly. They don’t know how much
it can help them. One of the things that Elder Palmer and I are trying to do is make sure that we state our purpose right from the beginning. We aren’t just out here to share spiritual thoughts or do bible studies, we are here to help people strengthen/develop faith in Jesus Christ, repent of all of their sins, be baptized by someone holding the priesthood of God, receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, and endure to the end. That is our purpose as missionaries. By doing this we have been finding out who actually wants to progress. I wish that more people around the world were willing to put God first in their lives. I know that if we put God first we will be able to do everything else that needs to be done. I love you and I hope that you have a fantastic week!
