Caption Contest!! Who's got the best caption??
This week went pretty well. We saw lots of progress with Less Active members and Investigators! No one came to church, but we are still hopeful for next week. This area has taught me lots of patience. With my companions, and with the people. Progress is made very slowly, but it is sure! I may never see the day when some less active members walk into sacrament meeting, but I know that their faith and understanding of the gospel has grown significantly while I am here!
One of our most exciting moments this week is when an investigator realized that he did have a testimony of the book of Mormon, and with that, he also knows that Joseph Smith is a prophet! Its beautiful :) He is still unsure about joining the church, but he has made so much progress! In the same lesson I was able to recognize one of the key indicators of the Spirit that Elder Holland mentioned in his talk "The Divine Companionship". This one was "Missionaries learn in moment of delivery". Edd asked us some questions from his reading, and we were able to expound on the verse with info that we didn't know ourselves! But I knew that what we taught was true. And He knows it too.
Looking forward to doing lots of finding this next week.
Love you lots!

A lady in the ward had our whole district get a picture for the local newspaper.
