We had a lot of good things happen this week. Mostly because of this new training we got. It sounds pretty harsh, and that's how I felt at first, but it really does work. It involves tons of people, a picture of baptism, and filtering. We talk to as many people as we can about baptism. The usual stunt is "Hey do you know what this is? It's baptism, it's being cleansed from our sins. We can have eternal life and happiness (other blessings, anything really). The 21st of December we'll be having a baptism service. Do you want to get baptized on that day?"
Basically we try to find the people who are really prepared by the Lord to hear our message. We know they're out there and every missionary loves finding them! But that's usually the hard part.
Now the goal is to filter through those who aren't interested right now to find those who are. Obviously about 90% of people aren't interested at all. But that's okay. We move on! And move on! We get rejected so many times but when someone is interested they're really prepared and the Spirit has already been working on them. We have a lot of new people to meet with this week and are super excited to meet and teach them all!
I know the Lord's work is true!
I heard it's snowing in Alaska!! Yay!!! I'm gonna miss a real winter but that's okay, I'm tan. Well, my arms, face, and the part of my neck that's not covered by a collar and tie....Haha I'm gonna have the darkest farmers tan!
I love everyone and hope you have an awesome week!!
