Missionary Work

Thanks for all the emails! They are really exciting to read. The pictures are great as well. Thanks again. This week was great. My new companion Elder Henson is teaching me lots of great things and I’ve been accomplishing some great language goals. We had a good lesson with our new member’s husband. He isn’t a member yet but is working and improving. He has been struggling with alcohol so we are helping him to see the negative affects of it. He was really good to come to a fireside with his family. Later we set some goals with him on how he wants to improve. It was great and we felt the Spirit as we taught him.

We also have been working on contacting every member in the branch. With each missionary companionship contacting 10 or so members a week we’ll be able to contact them all this half transfer. It is always fun to go member searching to find out where they are. It is a big project but will be very helpful for the new bishop once completed.
