Teaching the Gospel

Hey Guys,
I didn't get my package and I probably won't get it until the following week! You only receive packages during interviews, transfers, and when the zone leaders go to Cali every beginning of the month. So they go to Cali next Wednesday which means that is when I will probably get it. 

As for this week it was good. We had some pretty cool experiences. That family that we figured out wasn't married, we taught them the law of chastity. It was good. Last night they told us that they are probably going to get married. They have lived together for 17 years and they are going to get married because we taught them that it was right. That makes me pretty happy. 

H F V has been taking the lessons for more than three years and comes to church every Sunday and prays and has lessons with us but he wouldn't read his Book of Mormon. We decided that all our lessons we were just going to read the Book of Mormon with him. Well we read the introduction that says all the things you should do to know it is true. Then the testimony of the three and 8 witnesses and part of Joseph Smiths testimony. He really livened up during that lesson.
Later that week we had a FHE with some members and some investigators. The video we wanted to show wouldn't work so we showed one on the Book of Mormon. He said the closing prayer and he couldn't finish the prayer because he was overcome with the Spirit.

A few days later we had a lesson with him. I was talking to his daughter, a member of 3 years, and she told me that he started reading his Book of Mormon. During that lesson he said that his baptism is very close. So tomorrow we are going to ask him to be baptized on the 10th of June

I also had to give a talk in church yesterday. It was on missionary work. Not for missionaries for members. The 12 apostles said that the role of full time missionaries is to simply help the warm members with the missionary work. As members we can do so much. Always remember that. 

Anyways, other than that it was a pretty normal week. I hope all is going well and tell Katelyn congratulations for me!

I am doing good and staying obedient! Love you guys! Until next week!

Con Amor,
Elder Reese
