Massive pillar of light--love it

Wow it sounds like you had quite the party last Sunday. That's awesome! This last week we had a ton of people at church also-not to mention we had 2 investigators show up to church so we are making progress. We recently taught one name Sharla and we ended up being there for about 2 hours clearing up confusion about the millineum and the spirit world. She asked really good questions because she is older and doesn't do anything else besides think. The main concern is caused because her son died a long time ago and its been really hard for her and she is losing a lot of people. Right now we are helping her to reach the waters of baptism and she is so close. She has the desire but is held back by the word of wisdom problem. She just need a good friend and maybe a distraction so she can alter those addictions to positive things.
As a missionary everything is amplified. The love for some random person that actually takes the time to discuss things and ask questions about our religion is real. Even if its slightly negative. We plant that seed of the gospel and the way it changes people by just being patient and loving. So far I've heard so many things about Joseph Smith that kinda just make me laugh. Haha the mission is awesome!

This last Sunday I had the chance to teach a lesson completely on my own because my trainer decided to put me out on the limb but it was good because I nailed it. We talked for an hour and the lesson was spiritual and strong. Sunday in general was amazing for me also. Everyone had such a bright feeling about them and it just filled the whole sacrament meeting and then transferred into the rest of the meetings. We recently just got a huge list of people that we have to try and visit. So for the next few weeks I'm going to be busy. It going to be great. Got about 300 members we are trying to contact. I think that this is so great because we are in dark times. Look around us. Rumors of wars, youth going crazy and just everything is getting so bad. People are seeing that and noticing. At least some are, and they know that they need to rise up and find God and that's where we come in. I love this work and I know that this church is the true church. We are the most persecuted church and we still grow and grow. The fullness of the gospel is restored and we do have modern revelation through our prophet Thomas S. Monson. with the great mist of darkness there is a massive pillar of light to fight against it.   

1 Nephi 8:24
"And it came to pass that i beheld others pressing forward, and they came forth and caught hold of the end of the rod of iron; and they did press forward through the mist of darkness, clinging to the rod of iron, even until they did come forth and partake of the fruit of the tree."

Love you guys,
