October 7

Dear Family and Friends!!

     We are doing great here!! Sister Hillner is on fire! She continues to amaze me! That is crazy her friend is in our home ward. Lots of great things are starting to unfold! We have lots of potentials we hope to get progressing soon. We are working on inviting people and committing the members to invite their friends to our activity coming up, "Meet the Mormons." We are really excited for this activity coming up on the 14th. It will be a setting where people can come and learn more about what we believe. We are having a panel of members present The Restoration in 20 minutes. Afterwards, we are having free pizza, activties, and answer questions that anyone might have. 
    Miracle this week was our referrals we received! We were blessed with 6 referrals!! We are teaching one of them now and she has a baptism date for October 27. Her name is Ali and she was a member referral. She came to FHE on Monday night with her friend Mikayla that is the member. We met Ali that night and got to know her a little more. The next night we went to institute with one of our investigators and afterwards we were able to talk to Ali. We asked her right there if she wanted to learn more and meet with us. She agreed and had her first lesson the next day. The spirit was so strong and I knew we could ask her in that moment. As I was praying for Sister Hillner to know to commit her, and she did! She was able to commit her to soft baptism date in that very moment I was praying! 

    This week I learned that it is important to remember what our motivation is. I loved our ZTM we had a theme of ''Double it!" For us to double the work means we have to double our efforts. I learned that we need to remember the why, behind it all. Why are we baptizing 150 souls? It's not about the number, it is about each individual person that will be blessed. As the Savior did, "One by one!" We want them to come closer to Christ and receive all the blessings of eternal life.

     I am so grateful for the words spoken at General Conference and the inspiration I received. They were all so powerful and loved the emphasis on member missionary work, how we are all in this together. We are all on the Lords team and there is no I in team. We have to work as one! Together Everyone Achieves More. Hope you all are praying for missionary opportunties! Love you all so much!!!
