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 has been a great week, we have been really busy lately.  We hope to have some baptisms around Christmas time!  But there are some obstacles in our way (as usual in missionary work).

The biggest miracle story this week was that we had an investigator who attended church last week, but ended up in the hospital this week.  So we figured he wouldn't be able to come to church this week.  When much to our surprise he came!  He was feeling much better too!  We also set a baptismal date with him yesterday!  We also found some more African investigators to teach.

It has cooled down a lot in Durham, it is in the high 40s low 50s which is actually colder than it usually is this time of year for NC.  I love the weather but Elder Wion who has lived in Vegas for the past 8 years hates it.

That is a great miracle story of family history!  I have looked at the family search before and so much has already been done that I do not know where to start.  Is this Jonathan first time going to the temple?

I feel bad for Rascal it seems he always is getting injured. How do you keep Rascal from using his paw then?

I guess now that both sides of the family live south of us now, you can visit both of them on the same day.  It weird to think that no one lives north of us anymore.

I like that thought, the best way to grow a testimony is to share your testimony.  When our testimony is sincere and truthful the Holy Ghost will come upon the investigator and will touch their hearts if they let the Spirit in.  That is why 18 year old missionaries who only received 12 days of official missionary training are able to get people to be baptized.  It's not the missionaries that convert people it is the Holy Ghost!  I do not know any other religion in the world that puts some much trust in some one so young with so little formal training!  It is a miracle unto it self that the Church grows,when we live in a day where the biggest Christian churches in the world are shrinking!

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