Week 71, January 25, 2016, Teach People and Baptize Converts

How are you?
I'm doing really good! :)

What happened this week?
well, we had a really cool worldwide missionary broadcast at 10am MST on Wednesday.  Missionaries in Hawaii were watching it at 7am, and missionaries in Finland were watching it at 7 pm.  All the missionaries in between were watching it live in their own time zones, and everyone else watched it when they woke up.  IT WAS SO COOL!  it was in a part of the conference center, but also showed clips of a training given by different members of the Church Missionary Department to a group of missionaries serving in Ogden I think.  I learned so much!  

How has the weather been?its been good, not as cold, so that's nice, and its getting lighter at night all the sudden, so that's also a plus.  it means we can be more productive during the night hours.

How are you and Sister Short doing?
we are doing pretty good.  we are definitely learning a lot from one another, and growing closer to our Heavenly Father, and our Savior.  We are also slowly becoming more unified in all that we do. 

How is the work?
the work is going good!  we are working on teaching more people.  one of the focus points of the Broadcast was FINDING, and the different ways that we as missionaries can go about doing that, and how we can make those ways more effective.  things like working with less active members and part-member families, working with members, and asking everyone "whom do you know..." questions to help hasten this work.

What is your goal for this week?
I am really excited to be able to apply the commitment pattern with people.  I've been saying all week that whenever the Lord asks us to do something, he ALWAYS promises us blessings.  That was one of the trainings from the broadcast, so its something really important that I need to get better at doing.  especially since it is an entire chapter of PMG!

Any travel happening this week?
there was more travel last week, with 2 trips to Winnemucca and a trip to Reno and back.  This week we are just going to Winnemucca, and out to Unionville, which is a tiny little town that is part of our area.

This week should be pretty good!  I am excited to see what miracles will happen as we plan for them and strive to achieve them!
