Alma 29:9

I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me; yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy.

Another great week in Durham

This week was a great week! We had two investigators come to church last Sunday which was great!  They both want to be baptized and hopefully we can do it in October, but with General Conference and Stake Conference in October it's going to be tricky. We did get one new investigator last week, but he might be YSA so we may give him to the zone leaders.

Transfers are this week but Elder Evan and I are staying together for another transfer. Sister Doty is going home, so we will get a new sister in Durham 2nd ward.

School has already started at Duke so people have stopped moving in. We actually didn't do any service this week, but we are suppose to do two service projects tomorrow. I guess it just comes in waves. 

I haven't gotten to visit Duke on foot, but I really want to. Their Library has a first edition Book of Mormon in it! It seems like many General Authorities went to Duke though. On Tuesday, Elder Evan's bike axle broke so we took it to downtown Durham. Downtown is really trendy with lots of different types of restaurants.

I'm sorry to hear about Grandma, I will be praying for her. It seems like things been a bit rough for her the last couple years.

That is awesome that Jonathan is going to be at the Ogden cultural celebration! That should be a great time. I need to see a picture of the new temple.

I really like that thought. As a missionary we need Hesed! To be a missionary we have to love The Lord and love the people. If we do missionary work grudgingly, then investigators will notice and they won't convert. If we baptize people without loving them, we are denying ourselves the opportunity to convert ourselves to Jesus Christ's gospel.

I love you and I will email you again next week.
