It was a good week! Already starting to feel like fall with some nice cool weather!
Last Monday since we were like out of miles we just went and played pool with this old guy, Mike, at this apartment complex and he was so good. Made crazy shots and would play 5 shots ahead and determine how and where he would hit and the spin he would put on the cue ball. It was a lot of fun.
Had a lot of good lessons this week and people are making progress. Went out with Thane to visit people the other night and we set up three return appointments! Thane is a neat guy. Served a mission and was a great missionary. He knows his stuff!
In Fairfield this week we talked with two families at the door and both welcomed us back eagerly! Which was pretty cool since they are both part members. People in Fairfield are just so kind and genuinely nice! I could live there someday haha.
We are starting to really involve the members more and commit them to do missionary work in simple ways. It has been a good thing and we hope to see some fruit come of that!
Really cool thing is happening with the Maugers! They are a neat family and have so much momentum in the gospel right now. They have changed a lot and come far and we are all hoping to help them get to the temple soon! :) It will be such a blessing in their life. We watched "Temples are a beacon" with them and "The Blessings of the Temple". Committed them to have a goal to go to the temple and experience how great it is and how much of a strength to their family it will be.
Temples are so important and CRUCIAL to God's plan for us. It is the one way that we can be given the greatest blessing we could ever receive: an eternal family. Not to mention it allows those that have died to receive necessary ordinances for salvation, like baptism, and to be sealed to their families! It is God's "no child left behind" strategy in a way! Only those that choose not to follow Christ will be left behind, and that is because of their own choices. WE must choose to accept Jesus Christ and believe his teachings and the truth that has been restored today; That we have a prophet on the earth. That we have the authority of God to administer the church and perform ordinances. That the Book of Mormon is Another Testament of Jesus Christ and contains the fullness of the gospel and supports and clarifies the message of the Bible.
I love this Gospel and being able to share this great and wonderful message with everyone.
