Christ Stands at the Head of This Church -- Sep 19, 2016

Hello friends and family!
What a week it has been and I can say that I am certifiably exhausted. But that's the best feeling in the world so I'll just keep rolling with it.

This week has just been spiritual experience on top of spiritual experience and I am just amazed at the tender mercies that the Lord has shown both Sister S and I. We don't really get a lot of time on Temple Square contacting so every second is precious and a spiritual experience. We are being led to those who are truly ready to learn and act upon the message of the restored gospel and I have come to gain an increased testimony of how this work is directed by Jesus Christ. There is no person that we talk to that we were not meant to. We are led to every person be they member, guest, or anti. Every person is a child of God simply on a different place in their path back to Heavenly Father. Of course there are things that are necessary for everyone to return; faith, repentance, baptism (by proper authority), the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring, but everyone is able to know for themselves that this is the Church of Christ. It is all about connecting others to heaven. and who wouldn't want that?

This week we were able to work closely with the Mission President and the Zone Leaders to discuss the raising of the standard of excellence for baptisms per month per Zone. There are more people who have been baptized this year than in the history of Temple Square and in less than a month we should be hitting our annual goal of bringing 1,016 souls unto Christ through baptism in the year 2016!
How amazing!!!

We also went and spoke in a ward this Sunday and Sister S and I whipped a musical number together real fast where she 'plunked' the piano and I sang "I Stand All Amazed".

I forgot just how much I LOVE singing. It was one of the best feelings in the world. I was a little nervous and rusty but it was fun!

Well that's all for this week.

Love you all. And take extra time today to pray for the opportunity to show someone God's Love. Pray, and then Act!

And So It Begins . . . Sept 12, 2016

There sure has been some craziness happening this past week of
transfers but it has been a blast and a half.

So sorry if we don't have a lot of time to write but I will be sure to
hit the highlights of our week with my wonderful new companion SISTER
S FROM CANADA!!!!! And in case you didn't snows in

She is the best and has already taught me so much!

The first day we had interviews with all of the new sisters which was
an awesome way to get to know them and to see the wonderful spirit and
influence that these sisters are bringing with them to the mission.
They are on fire and truly are here to hasten the Lord's work.

After Tuesday President and Sister Risenmay left for a mission
President's seminar that went until Saturday afternoon so Sister
S and I were running around trying to do the best we could
to hold the mission together while they were away. We've had a couple
of scares and sticky situations but all in all it went pretty
well....but boy were we glad when they came home!

This week we were able to actually sit and discuss goals together as a
companionship and there is something to be said about developing and
increasing our faith in the Lord. I see this calling as such a test of
faith as I am not able to be out on the Square as much as I would like
to be; it is important that I can develop my faith and learn to rely on
the Lord that all things will be done in their proper order. There are
many things to learn and much patience to develop but I know the Lord
is preparing people for us to find everywhere we go.

I love you all and I love this work!
