Good Week

September 14, 2015

Hey Everyone, This week was a good week. We were able to teach quite a few lessons which was good. We found a few new investigators. One of the highlights was Sarah and Josh our 2 of our new investigators. We had a few good lessons with our investigator Franck. Franck is a sweet 17 year old. He moved here from the Congo in Africa. He is very smart. His english is getting very good. He has only been here for about 10 months. He has taught me a few French phrases. He seems to be doing well. We just need to get him to church so he can be baptized. It has been pretty tough to get investigators to church. The church isn't extremely far, but its about 20 minutes from our area and so its been a little difficult to get people to church. We are still working hard to help them come to church so they can be baptized. Transfers are coming up this next week and ill find out next Monday in the morning if im getting transferred. I am super excited for General Conference here in a few weeks. I always love conference. I always hear or learn something that I need or someone that i am teaching needs. If you have questions, watch conference and your concern will be addressed. I know that this is Christs' Church. I am so grateful for the Church and the atonement of Christ. Each day of my mission I learn more of my flaws. Missions are very humbling and it really has helped me grow. The chruch is true. These scriptures are some of the verses I read this morning in my studies and its kind of the way I have felt. I just wish people all wanted to learn. Haha, but we all of the gift of agency. I love you all have a good week! 

 And it came to pass that when Alma (Elder Lords) had come to the city of Ammonihah (North Liberty) he began to preach the word of God unto them.
 Now Satan had gotten great hold upon the hearts of the people of the city of Ammonihah; therefore they would not hearken unto the words of Alma.
 10 Nevertheless Alma labored much in the spirit,wrestling with God in mighty prayer, that he would pour out his Spirit upon the people who were in the city; that he would also grant that he might baptize them unto repentance.
 11 Nevertheless, they hardened their hearts, saying unto him: Behold, we know that thou art Alma; and we know that thou art high priest over the church which thou hast established in many parts of the land, according to your tradition; and we are not of thy church, and we do not believe in such foolish traditions.
 12 And now we know that because we are not of thy church we know that thou hast no power over us; and thou hast delivered up the judgment-seat unto Nephihah; therefore thou art not the chief judge over us.
 13 Now when the people had said this, and withstood all his words, and reviled him, and spit upon him, and caused that he should be cast out of their city, he departed thence and took his journey towards the city which was called Aaron.
 14 And it came to pass that while he was journeying thither, being weighed down with sorrow, wading through much tribulation and anguish of soul, because of the wickedness of the people who were in the city of Ammonihah, it came to pass while Alma was thus weighed down with sorrow, behold an angel of the Lord appeared unto him, saying:
 15 Blessed art thou, Alma; therefore, lift up thy head and rejoice, for thou hast great cause to rejoice; for thou hast been faithful in keeping the commandments of God from the time which thou receivedst thy first message from him. Behold, I am he that delivered it unto you.
-Elder Lords
