October 5, 2015

This week was a really good one;) hahaha, I feel like I say that every week. We have picking up a ton of new investigators! We have at least four progressing and that want to work towards baptism! We have been getting pretty close to our investigators and families. They invite us over for meals and ask us to do all this fun stuff that we can't do cause mission rules, but friendships have definitely been gained out of running into and teaching these people.

Other than that, this week has been a pretty normal week, and it flew by so it's hard for me to remember anything overly significant!

General conference was cool! I liked one of the first talks by Elder Uchtdorf: keeping things simple. The doctrine and principles are so simple but they really do take more than a lifetime to fully understand and comprehend. Faith in the fundamentals should be our foundation. People worry about the in-depth, including myself, maybe a little to much where as I could be focusing on putting my efforts in better understanding the atonement or Christ's doctrine instead of controversial church history topics.

No crazy challenges for you guys this week, just keep on keepin on;) Maybe listen to the young ones a little more because they are familiar and say these things that are so simple, but so true. Our investigators' 6 year old daughter out of no where just said "Jesus can do everything". That's inspired, and I think it hit all of us in the room harder than we thought. Just keep it simple, coming from President Uchtdorf. Love you all!
