Things are going well. It has been a great Sunday. We had a lot of investigators at church. It was a huge blessing. We were supposed to have a lot of people at church, and church started and no one was at church, but at the end of the day we had 13 people at church and 7 of which are baptismal age. It was a huge blessing. We had a mission wide fast that every companionship could have 2 people "On Date" for baptism by May 14th. So hopefully we can see fruits from our fast.
We got a full work in our area this week. It was great. I love teaching people the gospel. This week we taught people from all over the place. We taught a lot of people from Liberia. We taught, and talked to several people from Thailand. We also taught some people from New York, and from other places around the US. It has been a great week. I love the optimism of the Gospel. The Gospel is all about where we are willing to go with the savior's help, not where we have been. It is about changing and putting the past behind us. I love applying the principles of the atonement in my life, and helping others to apply those principles.
This week we will have a bunch of meetings.... :/ We will have MLC in Iowa City on Tuesday. Then we will attend Zone Training meetings in Cedar Rapids(Wednesday), Davenport(Thursday), and Oskaloosa(Friday). It will be good. We are stopping by "The Field of Dreams" on Wednesday so that will be fun! I hope you all have a good week! I love you all!
