Temple trip tomorrow (week 18)

This week has been pretty good. I don't have as much time today since it isn't actually p-day today. Tomorrow is going to be p-day since we have our temple trip tomorrow. And we have to get to a lesson here soon so I'm going to make it a little shorter this time. 

This has been a really great week to be honest. We have been able to meet a lot of new people and have even started teaching some of them. We have been working on turning every opportunity into a teaching opportunity. It is really helping us find new people to teach as we help them feel of the spirit and having it testify to them. It helps when we are able to bring the spirit to them because that feeling is what they will associate the church with. Even if they don't start taking the lessons now and learning of the gospel they will start being prepared to learn of the gospel at a latter time. I think that's what people mean when they say you will plan many seeds in peoples lives. It relates to Alma 32 when he is referring to the gospel as a seed. We are able to bring it unto people and let them hear it and feel of its light. And as time goes on they begin to feel a swelling of it in their hearts and a desire to learn more. There are many people who have been prepared in this way and the fruits are ready to harvest. This is what it means when in the scriptures it says "the field is white already to harvest". I think as members we should be working to help plan those seeds and find those that have already been prepared. We can all do our part in this work and help bring people to the gospel. 

We have had a really good week full of teaching and finding alike. Being able to get into a house and teach the gospel is such a great blessing. Being able to hear peoples stories and see where they come from is pretty fun. Then we get to share the gospel and help them come unto Christ. We have a few people we have progressing and we hope to invite a few of them to be baptized. I hope as they feel of the holy ghost they will come to realize the importance of it in their lives. And when we show others how important it is to us it will help hasten that progression. 

I hope all is well back home and that its not tooo cold for all of you back in Texas. 

Con Amor,
Elder Boren
