When We Try, We Can Reach Our Goals

July 31, 2017

Before last week, the entire zone only found 10 new investigators, which is very low. So Last Tuesday, I asked the District leaders to talk about it in their district meetings, which they did very well. At the end, I spoke a bit more about it, and had us all put a goal of how many new investigators we could find today. As a district, we put the goal of 11, and headed to work. To my surprise, by the end of the night, as a district, we met the goal of exactly 11 new investigators in one day, which was incredible, and the following day, we found 9 more! By the end of the week as a zone, we found 38 new investigators which was almost 4 times better than the previous week. That made me so happy, but we can really achieve a lot if we just focus ourselves on what we need to do.

And of course, we had something even cooler happen this week, a BAPTISM! Esperanza decided to get baptized this last Saturday which turned out very well! Elder Leon baptized her and I confirmed her on Sunday. Several sisters are very excited to have a new member in the Relief Society, and she’s fitting right in very well. She’s a great convert, and it is the best thing to have a front row seat to God’s plan in action. This is the reason of why we are here, and I’m so grateful to be a part of it.

Sunday, we also had 8 investigators in church which is a pretty good amount, all getting ready to be baptized most likely for August. Were doing well finding new investigators and setting baptismal dates. I love you all and wish you the best of weeks this week!

Love,

Elder Russon
