Hello oober awesome family!
This week has been really awesome. It feels like I have been out of my area a lot, but we have been able to get a lot of good things done.
We taught Kylie and her mom the plan of salvation this last week. The dad grabbed his computer and sat in the next room over. He was "working" on his lap top, but he was listening to everything we were saying and teaching. It seems like he wants to hear what we have to say without being directly focused on. We asked Kylie why she wanted to be baptized. She said because she knows a lot of people at church and because her mom is a member. This initial desire of hers will help us help her gain a conversion through the Holy Ghost.
Brother Tom has been busy with work, he is a teacher, thus this is a busy time for him, so we have not been able to meet with him. Hopefully this next week.
Mission conference was amazing. The whole mission was there, all in the same building. It was quite the sight. Elder Parker, of the sixth quorum of the seventy spoke to us. He is from down south and has a baptist background. If the way he spoke is how all the baptist churches are. Then I can see why people like going to them. He had a deep southern accent and he said many good things.
President and Sister Collins spoke to us as well. They said we are the best missionaries in the world. They love us and we love them.
Elder Anderson was amazing. I felt like the people of Gideon in Alma chapter seven. He spoke to us about the Atonement. Not many things are better than a Special Witness of Jesus Christ teaching about the Atonement. He told us we are teachers of the unseen. First Corinthians four eight. We teach not temporal things, but those that cannot be seen by the mortal eye. The Spirit, charity, hope, etc, etc. It was very good.
This week has been pretty much awesome! I love you all!
May the Spirit be with you!
Elder Durrant
