Two Weeks - One Post

October 27, 2014

Crazy week!!! I have been on 3 exchanges (When we work with other missionaries in their areas) and 3 cluster meetings (when we get the zone leaders together in a geographical area to discuss the work and how to improve.) All in all, tons of fun. 

We called our cluster meetings "Councils of War." In Alma 52:19 Captain Moroni gathers his leaders and discusses how they are going to re-capture a Nephite city.

"And in the commencement of the twenty and eighth year, Moroni and Teancum and many of the chief captains held a council of war—what they should do to cause the Lamanites to come out against them to battle; or that they might by some means flatter them out of their strongholds, that they might gain advantage over them and take again the city of Mulek."
In this war they were fighting a physical enemy. In our day and age, we are fighting a spiritual battle against the father of lies. We needed to re-group and figure out what we could do to better the work. This happened Monday and Tuesday. Today, after talking with the zone leaders throughout the mission they have told us that it has only gotten better! Satan is real. We need to acknowledge that. Once we do, we will be better equipped to fight him.
What an honor to serve with these missionaries and to further the Lord’s work.

This last week and this next week President Brinkerhoff is interviewing all the missionaries in the mission. Quite the feat! While he is talking with them we are training the other missionaries on subjects President gave us. President Brinkerhoff found out I sold pest control in Dallas the summer before my mission and wanted me to share some door tactics. It’s been fun. 

Elder Jones and I have been working hard in our area. Caitlin came to church this week! She went to all three hours and then went to a devotional that night!!!! 4 hours of church!!! AND we are meeting with her tonight and we are planning on setting a date with her!!!! I’m so pumped!!! Please pray for us and for her. She is going through this metamorphosis of the gospel. She is learning truths that the spirit tells her and its contradicting what she has been taught her whole life. It’s a physical and a spiritual change she is going through. It’s incredible to watch. Pleas pray that the spirit will testify of what we teach her and that she will have her heart softened. 

Bengal Creek is a gold mine!!! There is so much work to be done!!! It’s so great getting out and talking to people. We spent 4 hours knocking on doors and talking to people Sunday night. It was awesome!!! 

November 2nd, it snowed... The cold is coming in!!! This morning we couldn't open one of our car doors because it was frozen shut!!! Winter, here we come!!!

Love you

p.s. Who are you talking to about the Gospel? It’s a great conversation!
