White Winter!

This week has been great! We had Zone Conference on Thursday, which really gave us a spiritual boost. I always love Zone Conference!

Grand Junction District
 On Saturday we had a lesson with our investigator, Chuck. He recently married a member of the ward. We had taught him the first lesson about the Restoration, and went into our lesson on Saturday planning to talk about the Word of Wisdom. When we started the lesson, though, Chuck said that he was having trouble understanding what we had talked about last time. So, we went over it again, and tried to teach it more simply. After we reviewed it, he said that he understood. I felt prompted that we should read 2 Nephi 31 with him. So, we did! That chapter talks about Faith in Jesus Christ, Repentance, Baptism, and the Gift of the Holy Ghost. After we read it, we talked about the importance of baptism. Elder Bartlett extended an invitation to be baptized, and he accepted! We committed him to prepare to enter the waters of baptism on January 26th. We are praying hard for him to be prepared by that day!

We have an appointment with another investigator named James tonight. We've prayed and discussed, and we decided to invite him to be baptized on January 25th. I'll let you know how that goes!

We've been talking to a lot of people, teaching more and more lessons, and overall I've just been working hard and enjoying my mission! It's a great time in my life!

I heard that Justin and Rebecca were able to make the move to Albuquerque without too much trouble. I hope they're settling in well! Enjoy the Gilbert Temple open house! That's starting soon, right?
I hope all is well with everyone at home, or wherever you all may be! Remember to choose the right!

A Thought from Mom:

"Happiness is a journey, not a destination. Happiness is to be found along the way, not at the end. For then the journey is over and it is too late. The time for happiness is today, not tomorrow."
