It has been an exciting week with lots of new changes in the mission field. The World Wide Missionary Broadcast was very cool. They held it in Salt Lake City and it made me a little homesick to see Temple Square. Ugh, but it's ok. Elder Bednar, Elder Oaks, and Elder Anderson were there with some other General Authorities. I took lots of notes! It was a very good meeting! Elder Bednar even opened the meeting with a prayer and it was very cool to hear an Apostle pray. We now have greater flexibility in what we do during the day. The Lord is trusting us with His work and the work is hastening because of it!
We visited William twice this week and he is very prepared! He has a kind heart and is willing to learn more. The Hunters are also doing well and went to the Visitors Center at the D.C. Temple. They had a great experience there and the spirit was strong! Good things are happening here in the Winters Run ward! Speaking of the temple, we will be going there this Wednesday, so expect some temple pictures next week.
The Lord has been increasing the pace of His work and I'm grateful for this opportunity to witness it! The work that we do may be hard, but there are those who are willing to listen and who are seeking the truth. I know that this gospel has been a blessing in my life and it can bless yours, if you let it. I hope you have a good week!
