July 4th: One Month Left!

  Missing everyone and all you guys. Only 4 weeks left so time is really winding down. 

   Investigators are good have about 15 investigators right now so it can be a lot but it's nice to stay busy. Started with some new investigators as well. Every now and then they'll be someone who everyone assumes is a member and then we find out they're not and are ready for baptism in a matter of weeks. Also have some more less active families that we started with who have some children that are at the age to be baptized so we'll continue with them. 

   We started with a man Kyler, had studied with him before but he can talk a lot and likes to go into deeper doctrine. After he went on for 30+ minutes about the 2nd coming and then answering his own questions. I shared John 7:17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. Told him we aren't here to study with him about all these deep doctrine and chapters in the Bible. I told him we are here to help him to make a change in his life in order to be baptized and receive the Holy Ghost and from that being able to answer his own questions. It doesn't matter how well we try to study the bible and understand the word of God unless we are doing his will and keeping his commandments. 

  The last 2 Saturdays have been way fun. Last week went with the other missionaries, the senior couple, and all the seminary kids down to Gucci Gue. It was raining all day but had a blast. The Ricks are still continuing seminary despite it being summer but now they're doing it at night time. This Saturday got to Abejdik, an island south of Ebeye for the day. There was a funeral there for one the men we studied with. Only a few more weeks though so really trying to make the most of the days off. 

Have a good 4th of July weekend and love you guys.
