1/20/14 January 20th Elder Gurr
How are things going? It has been fun this last week. I can't believe how much time has passed. It has been fun. Here is what happened this week. Monday was tough because we couldn't find many people in their house but we taught a member family because our goal is to help all the members understand how to share the gospel. They are all new at this. Tuesday we found a guy who is very interested about learning more about what we teach. We hope to visit him this week to help him know the doctrine. I also found a scripture about baptism and the gift of the holy ghost in Acts 19 (2-6) about how we should receive the Holy Ghost. Then the next day we just worked on other things we needed to do.
One of our investigators who in the past rejected the Book of Mormon is reading it like crazy. He is attending church and is on his way to maybe a baptism after the transfer date so we will see. Thursday we passed by him again and he was still positive and he wants to meet with us during the morning hours which is hard to find men in the house at 11 am in the morning. We are excited to continue with him.
We are having problems with our family baptism. We might not be able to work with them for much more. Friday I had an interchange with Elder Jurado and we helped set up a men's activity for the ward to animate them more. We had shish kabobs. They were delicious. I had fun setting up the computer and whipping out the info from the computer like a high tech guy.
On Saturday we worked hard with an investigator. He is the only one who truly understands the restoration. It's not an easy topic to understand. We can see a baptism in the future for him. It's so crazy. Sunday was hard because the power went out but besides that everything went well. We taught a guy from El Salvador and he is interested. We hope to find a way to help him spiritually. I had tons of fun. Hope you can receive these pictures.
