Missionary Experiences

Good Morning

Sounds like by now everyone should be four wheeling (try not to give mom any scares).

This week we had a week full of conferences. First we had a conference on Tuesday with President Willard and then Thursday a zone conference and then a exchange with the zone leaders and then Saturday and Sunday General Conference. 

On my exchange with the zone leaders I went over to their area and I found out that a certain person had gotten baptized. This really surprised me because the last time I was in the zone leaders area this man didn't want anything to do with us. When we walked in he would get up and walk away. He was against his family getting baptized and threatened to beat them and so on. Finally he gave his family permission  to get baptized but not him. After some time, their family was praying to bless the food and his daughter of about 5 years gave a simple prayer and said ¨Please help dad change his character and go to church¨. The moment changed the dad forever and was promptly baptized. Interesting how hearts are softened.  

Our investigators are doing okay. Ariel tells us he doesn't need to pray because he already believes the Book of Mormon to be true. Of course he will still have to pray but it seems to accept everything. He just needs to go to church. 

General Conference: I really enjoyed the priesthood session, especially the talks of Elder Nelson and of course president Uchtdorf was hilarious. I don´t know if dad went or if you saw it, but that is a good one. Also the last session with Jeffery R. Holland was funny. It was surprising that he showed that picture. But you will all have to watch it.

As far as the package it has not arrived yet. I will definitly send a photo next week. 

Have a good week,

Elder Gilbert
