Elder Edholm week 63

Last week Palmer had zone conference and thankfully I stole this picture from the DR West Mission Facebook page.  Palmer is on the second row second from the left.
So good news about this week is that we are finally starting to find some really great families. We have been blessed with one incomplete family and one entire family this week. Our convert Sonia is awesome and she is sharing the gospel with all of her kids. Her oldest daughter, Sonia, just left her church and is a little confused, so she met us at the perfect time. She went to church with her three sons on Sunday, her husband couldn't go. We went over that same day to teach them and she pretty much told us that she believes it all. Her husband hasn't quite gotten there yet, but he is open to it. He's attending another church right now, but he's not super converted and he's open to change. The other family we found, the mom is a less active member and so is the son. Her daughter is pretty excited about going to church and everything. Finding families is probably the biggest blessing a missionary can receive.

Elder Powell and I have really been trying to work with members more often. But actually good and effective member lessons. Before I just got use to leaving with youth for the whole day. It's a good thing to do, but each investigator has a different personality and if we can plan effective lessons with members we can help our investigators more in there conversion process. After being failed so many times by so many different members it just gives me so much excitement to keep doing this work after my mission too. Because members have just as big of a part in the process of conversion as the missionaries do.

Well sorry for the short email this week, everything is normal here!

Love you all! 

´Till next week!
