This past week was great! We attended the Columbus Temple and had several powerful lessons. Our investigator, Tyler, in the YSA branch committed to baptism for the end of this month. We are having great success in this area! Here are some pictures from the week:
This was from a hike we went on in our area today in Cuyahoga Falls. Love me some Ohio landscape!
Since I’m being more diligent with taking pictures, I attached some more pictures. This week was great. We were able to take our investigator Tyler to Kirtland. It was a very spiritual experience as Kirtland always is. The Spirit is so tangible as we entered into the School of the Prophets. I hope all of you can go to Kirtland and experience that. I hope you all have a good week!
Sorry I didn’t send my weekly email last week. Things were crazy with transfers and everything. Speaking of transfers, I did get transferred to the Akron stake! Being an assistant to President Brown helped me grow so much. I don’t think I’ve ever been so stressed in my life! But it was for a good cause. Now that I have the opportunity to come lead the Akron zone for what will most likely be the last 2 transfers of my mission, I’m planning on working my tail off!
I now have the opportunity of covering the Tallmadge ward and a YSA branch. That means I will get to spend some time teaching people my age! With the Akron University’s campus in our area, we will be focusing a lot of our efforts on students. I’m excited to see what memories will be made in this new area.
Remember to review conference talks from this past session. I promise you will receive revelation as you do so 🙂
Have a good week!
PS here are some photos with my old companion and new companion a and also a recent convert here in the branch.
We have been so busy with zone conferences and now we are finished! This is the last week of the transfer so we will picking up the new missionaries next week. I hope you are all preparing for general conference this week. It is the last general conference of my mission so I am preparing to receive a wealth of revelation. I know that we all can receive revelation as we prepare for this weekend full of counsel from prophets and apostles!
I hope you all have a good week!
Pic: This week is my companion’s b-day and he got a gift card to Red Lobster so that’s where we went for lunch!
I am alive and well. We have been super busy with Zone Conferences. We have one more week and then we will be done! We have an awesome experience with our investigator as she said the closing prayer to one of our lessons. The spirit was so strong as she prayed from her heart. After praying and asking if Joseph Smith was a prophet, she said she felt different. She felt peace. It’s moments like those that you can’t put a value to.
Here are a few pics from the Cleveland Stake BBQ from a few weeks ago. The smoked pork was out of this world. This here is why I have gained weight. Ohioans eat very well.
This past week was great. The weather is beginning to get better. We had 3 Zone Conferences to attend which all went very well. Despite not having too much time in our area, the Lord blessed us with a new investigator. His name is LJ. He’s a young kid with parents who are already members. He’s on date to be baptized in October. It always amazes me how much young kids know about the Gospel.
3 more zone conferences this week through out the mission! I hope you all have a good week.
