My family, how are ya?!
This week we did lots of stuff. We traveled a ton! We tried something really different and saw sweet results.
On Friday we tracted in Christina Lake wearing work clothes looking to help. The first house we went to we were warmly welcomed by Sean and Penny! They were really impressed that we were offering to do yard work! We found out they had really good experiences with Mormons and that they were from Great Britain. They told us, “Share a spiritual message with the kids? Why yes!!!” We have an appointment to go back this week.The same day we went to lunch at a butcher shop and met some less active Mormons who owned the place! They were really happy to see us.Another day we spent time in Midway, BC doing some work for John and Leda on their farm. We taught Grant, an extremely busy family man while he was cooking tacos. He told us, “A prophet today? Absolutely. I think we need one!” We saw Mardi take a big step this week. She’s willing to do anything to be baptized again. She committed to quit coffee and she gave us her coffee mix.
One of the coolest things that happened this week was that we had a council with the members on Sunday and watched the church’s priesthood training. It really motivated the members and as soon as we started discussing what we could do tons of ideas started coming out. We planned out tons of activities and events, the members now want to go and meet the less active people to reach out to them. It’s really exciting seeing their willingness now to participate. That should make quite the difference.
Everything this week has been wonderful. The work is no doubt accelerating steadily. We broke a record for most lessons we’ve taught in a week in our area -11. Keep praying that it continues. I love you. Have a great week in sunny Austin Texas!
Love, Elder Kenny Call
