Hunter Week 11: Become Truly Converted


Happy Memorial Day Weekend y'all! I just want to give thanks to all those who have served in the military and have fought for our country and our freedoms. Thank you so much! This past week has been fantastic! We talked in two wards (congregations) this week which was enlightening! I gave my testimony in the Oxford Ward about missionary work and how the ward could help us and how my mission has changed me. So that was awesome! There were four speakers, so I only had to talk for ten minutes which was nice! Haha! Then in the Heritage Ward we gave talks on being converted to the Gospel which was fun! I got a quote from President Hinckley that my Papa Ault shared for his Sunday spiritual thought that went in really well with my talk! President Hinckley has stated:  "Growth comes with correction. Strength comes with repentance. Wise is the man or woman who, committing mistakes pointed out by others, changes his or her course... Let our faith replace our fears."

So I shared that quote, and it tied in well about how we can become converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ! I spoke for about 15 minutes in that ward which fun as well! Elder Muse did really well too at talking, so I was proud of him! I took a picture of him talking. haha! (Not sure if that's allowed, but oh well.)

We had a good week, and we met with Abbi again this week. We talked about the Plan of Salvation and it was awesome. He really enjoyed it! He had a lot of deep questions that we answered and discussed with him, so that a great experience! He told us he is one step closer to baptism, and he really wants to! So I can't wait!

We also are helping some people moving out soon this week. One is an investigator named Brittany and she is getting kicked out of renting a basement and is currently not sure where to go. She is a single mom. She has to move out by June 1st, so we are helping with that situation with the best of our abilities. Then the other one is the Cababas family, and they are moving up to the Ogden area and will need help moving furniture. So lots of service.

But ya, it was a great week and we are trying out a new method of working in our wards and so far it has been going great. We have been doing good! I love this area and working here. Hard to believe it's almost transfers again on June 6th! It goes by too fast! But I love all y'all! I hope you have a great week! Thank you so much for all your support!

We just got back from a hike we did to lake on the east side of the valley so that's why my email is so late. I will send hiking pictures soon!
