Tooele Week 4: Our Purpose


Good morning, everyone! This has been another great week here in Tooele County! We didn't have too much success this week (other than a few lessons in one our wards). We have recently, since we are whitewashing a sisters’ area, have been trying to go on splits with our Ward Mission Leaders, Priest, and stuff like that. That way we can cover twice as much ground to contact people and to find new people to teach. So, we made a goal yesterday to find a least one new person to teach and to continue on from there.

I really love this area, and the members here are really helpful to us which is fantastic! We are getting to know them and starting to build some bonds which will be really useful! We went to one our wards yesterday, and we talked a lot about the Restoration and the Plan that God has for us. It really helped me to get focused on why we are here helping people to get closer to Jesus Christ. So, it's ballin to be here and to learn more about our Savior as I learn this new area. It's awesome!

So ya, I hope all of y'all had a great week! Just know that I'm loving the work and the people here! I love all y'all! Stay safe! Something that I think would be good for everyone is just taking time to get to know our Savior. When Elder Rasband, from the 12 Apostles, came to the mission, he invited us to get to know Him, and by getting to know Him our will to serve Him will increase. So, just wanted to extend that same invitation to get to know the Savior. Something that I did was to read the 4 Gospels which I finished a week ago. It really helped me a ton! I love y'all! Stay warm! Thank you for all of the support! It means a bunch!

Peace out!
