getting to know our converts

Latest news from our missionary.

We had a pretty cool week. We had our zone conference Thursday and that was really cool what the president did. He taught some more about Teaching Repentance and Baptizing Converts. It's a theme we've been touching on rather constantly to tell the truth and I'm really loving it. But this time around he did something really cool. He asked all of the missionaries who are converts to stand up and asked for some volunteers to come up and share their stories with us. They talked about their own conversion process and how they met the missionaries. There was this one sister that had a really awesome story, went to church for a year before she got baptized. That was a really cool story. I was really able to learn quite a bit about the example of those missionaries who taught them and how their behavior and example really changed and affected the understanding and learning abilities of these missionaries. It's interesting to see that as well in my own converts and those that I teach and even in the ward members. It's interesting to be in places that haven't had the best missionaries there beforehand and then you try to work and they trust you quite a bit more. 

I think it just shows more and more that our own example is super important. Like it says in 1 Timothy 4:12(Which I'm ponderizing this week if anyone wants to join me) we are and should be an example at all times and in all that we do. I've learned that as we do our best to show our exaple to others that they will trust us more as they realize we love them and are trying to really help them.

 I love you guys. Until next week!

P.S. All the missionaries from Texas 'cept Gann, Cause he's far away. Plus one other guy who decided to photobomb us.
