David's FAVORITE SCRIPTURE
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

3/10/14 March 10th Elder Gurr
I have now been in this country for
over a year and I still feel like I just got here. Here is a little bit of what happened this
week. Well a few things that were
awesome that happened this week is we found a new family that seems very
positive and we hope to get them to start to go to church and it was
awesome.I feel like they can really
progress. One of our investigators came
to church again and the best part ever he dropped coffee completely. I was so excited to hear that. He has a date for next week, he will be the
first person I baptized from going contacting and baptizing him.He is a good spirit and had a tough time with
just coffee but now we can get him baptized the 15 or 16 of March depending on
which day he attends church.
Also the baptism from a week or so
ago, Abraham, well he has the Aaronic Priesthood and he is still happy
attending church.It is so good to see
others progress and continue to progress.
This Saturday we went by a family
that has investigated the church since the start of January and I went with a
zone leader to help us get to a baptism date and convince them to go to church.
The mom knows everything is true only
she needs to go to church but the problem is her husband. He acts like he has things to do but he doesn't
have work Sunday and they are legally married. It's tough. They accepted the last month of March but they
did not attend church. It's hard sometimes on a mission but as long as we
continue to work hard and fight to the end we will be blessed.They may not get baptized this change or next
but I hope eventually they do. It would
be really sad to see them not finish and get baptized.Only one of them was baptized as a baby and
the other not even. The woman wants to but she needs to have church attendance
to prove so.
This is what happened this
week and I hope to continue to work hard and get more done here. I would not be happy if I left this change.There is more to do here. Well, I will see you later.
