Dear Family and Friends,
This week we had our last Zone Conference with President and Sister King. It was a really powerful conference, but a sad experience at the same time. I got to go on exchange with the other Elders in my District, and we had a lot of fun, but my companion goofed up and missed dinner one of the days, so we had to apologize. We had a couple really neat teaching opportunities, one with a sister that has been away from the church for a long time, and one with a young man that grew up without religion in his life. They were both powerful lessons, and we really tried to listen to the Spirit to help them know what Heaenly Father wanted them to know. The work seems to be starting to pick up, things are beginning to roll forth, and hopefully things start to happen pretty soon. We're trying to continuall improve, and really focusing on asking members to help us in seeking revelation about how to do the work of the Father in his way. The members here are great, they're a lot of fun, and I enjoy serving with them. Especially our bishop, he's such a great guy, and he loves to help us in any way he can. Since the Temple opened, it really seems like the Lord is pouring out his Spirit upon the people here, and softening and preparing hearts. It's such a funtime to be a missionary, the work is difficult, but it's so rewarding that all the effort is more than worth it. I would like to share some few thoughts this week about the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost is the Key to Exaltation! If you seek to live worthy of, listen to, and obey it, it will lead you straight back into the presence of the Father having accomplished all that you were foreordained to do, and there you will sit down on the right hand of the Father eternally, to go no more out. I can say nothing more straight forward, and simple than that, and I testify with all my heart and soul that what I just said is the truth. God bearing witness of it. We must do what is necessary to have the companionship of the Holy Ghost Always, in the name of the Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.
