Week 80!

Hello Friends and Family!

This has been another great week! Our zone conference went perfectly as planned. It was amazing to see all of the Zone Leader's and Sister Training Leaders instruct all the missionaries. For part of the conference we built a mock ward counsel and we invited President Weed and the local Stake President to be missionaries and the Ward Mission Leader. It was pretty comical seeing the reversal of roles, however it was also extremely instructive on how we can better work with the leaders in our area. All the missionaries were the other ward council members. 

As far as the work goes, we were also able to find 5 new investigators, 3 of which are a family we tracked into. We also found a couple other potential investigators that seem to be promising. Personally, I feel like the hardest part about missionary work is finding a potential that seems interested, and then the next time you come by they are definitely not interested. Its a bit frustrating, but it just opens our schedule to find those who are seeking for the truth. Our current investigators are getting busy with work so we aren't able to meet with them often. Our one progressing investigator contracted strep throat so we haven't been able to seem him in a while either. 

I am so grateful for this church. In my studies I quickly went through the Bible and found examples of the pastern of apostasy. There are so many examples of the church going astray and then God restoring it again to the earth. The biggest example of this is when Christ came and established his church because it had gone astray. After it had fallen astray again, Joseph Smith was called to restore the church to the earth for the final time. I am grateful for living prophets and apostles. I love this church.

Love y'all,
-Elder Shill
