1 October 2012

This week has been one of learning! I'll put that first. We have we learned that when we have a better focus in the work the Lord blesses you. and he will put the prepared in your path. I have also learned that these past few weeks with out really noticing it I have been selfish. I forgot what I had learned about being like Christ with the outward turn. I had stopped worrying about if I was thinking of others before myself. It is going to stop now! I am here to serve the people in this area that I have been called to serve. not for them to serve me! I should always be asking myself how can I help them, what do they need, what does God want me to do for them? Questions like that should always be going through my mind. I know how to communicate so why am I not asking people questions? Questions that will help them learn the importance of our message. Okay I may be being a little hard on my self but I feel that I could be doing so much more that I am not. I am here to serve God! So this week has been great! We were able to find not only new potentials but also new investigators. Tracted into a German Couple, very cute. they mentioned how our last name is very German. We are excited for them. Also we were very sad to see and recent convert family move. The Dad could not find work here so was in another state working and it was just to hard and the family being separated. So they moved. Also taught a referral with the member the referred her. It was basically a question answer period but it was great. so excited to go back! Taught another recent convert who is Spanish the signs for the ten commandments and a game that can be played with the signs. He is excited to teach his brother who is not a member. He considers himself Nephi and his brother and cousin are Laman and Lemuel. He is so cute. Our on-date dropped us! He was so prepared and excited for his baptism. we had talked to him earlier in the day about going to go see a baptism that night. he was unsure if he could go. so we asked him to call us and let us know. because we had a ride that we may or may not need to cancel. Well we called later that night because he hadn't called and he told us that he didn't want to meet with us anymore and he would just go to the local church a block away from him. We think some one got to him. Because he was so excited about....even that morning. it is really saddening! The relief society broadcast was amazing! I have already decided that I will have to get a conference issue ensign so I can mark it up! I am so excited for conference coming up and hope that I will Learn all the God desires of me to learn. Well out of time hope all is well with you all, Con mucho amor, te quiero, Hermana Ziegler
