Week 30

Hey fam and friends!

Kind of a rough week!  It's hard work finding people who are prepared, and it's discouraging when the people you feel are ready stop progressing.  We met with "B" and showed her the restoration movie about Joseph Smith, she really liked it, but she didn't come to church.  We were sad, "A" surprised us though when he showed up to church, he even combed his hair for the occasion, what a good guy!

We did a lot of street contacting this week, at the Junction and on Alki Beach.  Good conversations, you meet some fun people on the streets! It pretty much rained the whole week here.  Shocker!

This week was legendary as far as meals go, we had a dinner appointment Sunday-Wednesday.  Members cooked for us on Thursday and Saturday, and we went out to eat at Spud on Alki Beach on Friday!  We eat GOOD in the Seattle mission!

We had a worldwide satellite broadcast training for missionaries this past week; it was really good!  Bednar talked about the importance of the spirit in conversion.

We met with "C" again this week, we gave her a Chinese Book of Mormon and she was super excited.  She still won't come to church, even though the Seahawks lost.  She's waiting 'til after the playoffs.  She said in China all they have is badminton and ping pong  and she gets way pumped when she comes to America and sees how big a deal everyone makes football.

This week, a verse that really stood out to me was Ezekial 36:26 "A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh."  One of my zone leaders always talk about how much he hates the phrase "That's just the way I am."  It denies the Atonement and the Gospel.  What a blessing that we can have a new heart and that we can change ourselves with the help of our Heavenly Father.

Love you all!!!
