So I'm emailing today. I'm sending letters too, but haven't yet and not sure when i can. I still have to finish a few so just a little about the mission. So i got here in the morning had a mtg. till like three thirty and my trainer is elder gale. He is from Utah so the first thing he tells me is that we have four appt. that night, so that was cool, but then he told me that two were at 630 and two were at 730 so my first two lessons in the mission field were on splits with a member. My first lesson was with two kids who already have a baptismal date set so i just taught them the 4th lesson on commandments and it went really well. The little boy who is 13 is reading the Book of Mormon and has questions and everything, it is cool. The little girl who is 11 isn't really reading, but she promised me that she would. everything in that lesson went really well. they are still getting baptized on the 6 of august so then my second appt. was with this guy who married this girl who is a member and had a baby with her like 3 months later so he was really interested in the church and the girls family is really good. they showed him the two hour restoration film and he knew that it was true so then at church on Sunday someone showed him Moroni 10 3-5 and he knows the Book of Mormon is true so then i talked to him and he said he would be baptized when he learned some more so i went on with the lesson and then told him we should set a date for the baptism and the I mentioned Aug 20 and asked him if he could prepare himself so that he could be baptized by then and he said that he would and he knew he could be ready with the help of his family and the help of us and so my first real lesson the guy was prepared so much by the Lord that all i really had to do was set a date and ask him. what are the chances of that? it is crazy we are meeting with him again on Sunday so we will see how he did on reading the Book of Mormon still. this is cool, my trainer is cool, and I'm ready to DO WORK.
i love you familyelder urmston
Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your hearts. And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost. And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things.Moroni 10:3-5
