So Missionary Month? I think I might be able to help with that.
Well.. I'm gonna give ya'll our Member Missionary Lesson.
Pres Monson said: “Now is the time for members and missionaries to come together … [and] labor in the Lord’s vineyard to bring souls unto Him. He has prepared the means for us to share the gospel in a multitude of ways, and He will assist us in our labors if we will act in faith to fulfill His work”
The Lord has prepared people everywhere to hear and understand the message of this gospel. We are in the fulness of times. And our job is to spread the great message of this gospel. And we need to share the gospel to all, Christ said "...but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee..."-Mark 5:19
Missionaries and Members need to come together on a combined effort, to share the gospel. Elder Ballard declared:"We are not asking everyone to do everything. We are simply asking all members to pray, knowing that if every member, young and old, will reach out to just “one” between now and Christmas, millions will feel the love of the Lord Jesus Christ. And what a wonderful gift to the Savior."
It has been said "it would not be easy, only that it would be worth it."
Waverly is going well. The people are starting to soften their hearts. We are having little success still, were not getting as much investigators then we would like. We have a knack of finding 14 year old girls, single moms, and older women (70s-80s) I don't know why but all but 2 investigators are women.
Sacrement Meeting was AMAZING!! Betty went up and bore her testimony for the first time. It was Elder Weilenmanns last Fast and Testimony Meeting before transfers, and I... Dont remember what I said, But a lot of people told me that it was what they needed to hear. So I trust that I did a good job :)
We are meeting with Elishyia's brother, Nick and will hopefully set a date with him and Elishyia for Dec. 7 :) and we are going to meet with some formal investigators, who have been solid at one time or another and re-set dates and get the fire in them again. One formal, Corry, actually has "Families are Forever" tattooed on his arm. I really want to meet with him.
The Waverly Branch however, is in pain. We need prayers. Sister Buettell, our mission nurse, is having eye and heart problems, Bro. Swallow has just found out that he has Cancer down his spine and on some of his ribs. Please Pray for them.
Till Next Time.
