Hello this week,
This has been a pretty good week! We weren't able to teach too many lessons, but we did have some good experiences! We were able to teach Willy this week, we taught him the plan of salvation, and he really liked it. He was so in to what we were saying, and then he started crying at one point in the lesson. It is was neat to see him as he learned about his purpose here in life. That was something that Willy had a lot of questions about and he loved the lesson because it answered so many of his questions. I think next lesson we will invite him to be baptized again and we will see what he says.
This week at church, we had a big turn out! There was a lot of people there, and a bunch of them were less actives. We had really good lessons in all of our classes too! In Sunday School we teach the gospel principles class, and the past two weeks we have had 1 investigator, a couple of less actives and one of the less actives has been bringing his non member wife to church. Yesterday we talked about scriptures study and the less active, his name is Shayne, was talking about how his wife just keeps reading the Book of Mormon and the Bible. Then after the lesson I guess President Erickson was talking to Shayne and his wife and his wife asked about getting baptized!!! Its so exciting! Hopefully this week we will go over and start teaching her and maybe set a date for baptism!
Its amazing how the missionary work in these small little places continues to move forward. You would think that in a town so small that there wouldn't be much success or much opportunity for missionaries, but I keep getting amazed at how much potential there is in small little towns. I am so grateful to have been able to serve in these small little towns, it has really helped me realize all of the miracles that God is capable of performing! All we need to do is pray for them and then work for them and we will see so many miracles in our lives!!!!
This week should be an interesting week, it is almost Elder Burnettes last week and hopefully he will be able to finish off strong. We also get transfer calls this week so I will find out Saturday who my new companion will be! Thanks for all your love and support! I am so grateful for all of my family and friends. I love each of you! Have a great week!
Love Elder Farnsworth
