Everything Gets Brighter (Week #50)

I'm doing great! Everyone's being nice and stuff. All is well in Zion. (just kidding, that's actually a bad thing)

So yeah we found some new investigators...We had a guy who came up to us and said he was writing an essay on our religion and pretty much asked every question imaginable for like 2 hours straight.

The best way to find investigators is probably just being myself. Like having fun with it. When I'm tired and a robot, nothing happens but when we're joking around and having fun it's great.

The missionary choir sings on the 28th.

So yeah E got baptized!! It went super well. 

What has been your biggest challenge this week?Probably finding time for everything. We've been trying to help as many people as possible this week but planning has been super important.

What has been your biggest concern?Making sure Satan doesn't get a chance to stop E from baptism.

What has been your biggest success?She done been baptized!! She told us about how she was having dreams about she's in a really dark space and can't move or wake up and then the missionaries show up and G. Super sweet.

Who has been your favorite person this week? Why?Either Brother B or the Ls. The Ls are like the perfect family and are missionaries times 100. They try to fellowship everyone as much as they can and take really good care of the missionaries. And Brother B just really cares about us and loans us a bunch of books to help us out. He really cares about his family and is trying to set a better example for them.

What has been your most significant tender mercy?Realizing that we're recognized. We were walking down the street and this dude was working outside and all he asked was where we were going and then handed us a rake because he knew we would help out. Pretty cool.

What are you looking forward to this coming week?We're having an exchange for almost 3 days. So I get to go work with Elder A. He's a blast so it's gonna be awesome.

Do you have a goal set for this coming week? Tell me about it.Focus on being guided by the spirit. It's super important.

Which scripture has had the biggest impact on you this week?We had a zone meeting and they really focused on the Book of Mormon and sharing it. In specific, 3rd Nephi 11 when Jesus comes and visits the Nephites. We've shared it maybe 10 times this week and IDK if I ever shared it, but we went caving in scouts and Bishop Johnson took us to the very back of a cave and turned off all the lights and shared his testimony about their experience. It really hit me that that was a huge boost for my testimony.

Hope y'all have a great week!
Love you guys!
Elder Hess
