Winter in Artashat

This week has been another week of miracles.  Just being able to see changes in the people we meet with has been great, whether it be big or small.  There are a couple of investigators that are progressing and that have a true desire to understand and know of the message we bring.  

We were blessed to receive guidance from the missionary department and I learned many things about the role of the Holy Ghost and how if we are worthy conduits we can fulfill the work of God.  

It has been great to see the changes in not only others but in myself and my companion as well.  It has been a great time to learn of the atonement of Jesus Christ and how to use the enabling power of it to become "perfected in Him."(Moroni 10:32)  

We have been running through investigators like crazy because none of them were progressing.  So, we are working with a lot of new ones that are progressing.  We had about 6 at church which was a miracle even though we planned on around 16.  It's disappointing to see people not care or progress.  It gets extremely tiring.  But, we are on the uphill I hope.  I can feel a change coming soon. 

The ward here has very good long time members and a lot of new ones.  We have about 70 people on average at church, and not a lot of true converts yet.  We are working on it though.  

It Sounds like everything is going well at home.  Also did you change everything in the house?  And to let you know, I am going to get a bullet bike;  a Kawasaki Ninja 300 to start and then a bigger bike later.  Don’t freak out.  I am not going to do anything crazy.  They are cheap and have great gas mileage. Let me know what you think.  

Keep on having fun.  Love you tons mom! Tell dad to shave, please. have a great week! The Book of Mormon is here to help us, in every way.

I hope that all of you can love one another with a perfect love of Christ "for charity never faileth" (Moroni 7:46).  It's made a difference in my life and it will make a difference in yours.  It's your part to find out how to obtain it. Love you all!
