Faith To Reap April 18, 2016

This week started of on a really high note. We went on an awesome hike on Monday as a district. We went to this place called Fossil Falls. So that was a lot of fun. On Tuesday we had zone conference with our mission president and all of the mission staff. We received training on housing, cars, and missionary work. The housing was more just to remind us to keep a clean apartment. The car was so that Salt Lake could install Tiwi. Many of you know what that is so you could probably anticipate our excitement to have those installed. Which after using it for a week it wasn't as bad as we thought it was going to be. Elder Hernandez and I had to give a training on the importance of finding new people to teach by the spirit and then the importance of teaching by the spirit. Our training was about 25 minutes and then President and Sister Wilson addressed us. They spoke or based there thoughts off of a talk given at BYU-Idaho in march of 2015. The talk was titled "Faith to Reap". I invite you all to read that because it gives us great insight if we wish to achieve the goals we set before us. Here is the link to it.

Read over it and study it. I found great help through it. It makes me want to have an exceedingly large amount of faith. Or as put the Faith to Reap. The zone conference gave me a really good boost for the week. This week was just full of really interesting experience. We taught this lady the whole restoration and then extended her the invitation to be baptized and then she just shut the door. It was the strangest thing ever. We also that day ran into a polygamist family that is in Ridgecrest so that was a little awkward. On the bright side though we were able to have lots of lesson and the people we are teaching are progressing really well. We have a baptism this Friday so that will be fun. Other than that things are going really well. Excited for whats ahead. We should be having like 4 or 5 baptisms over the next month. So keep praying for those people we are teaching. We will keep you posted. 

The picture below of me grilling is because there is this family in our ward that invites us over for lunch pretty much everyday we just have to make the food that we want so we ate like kings this week. On Wednesday we had burgers, Thursday cheeseburgers, Friday pork chops, and Saturday just nachos but all of the food was so good. Plus its good practice for my grilling skills for after the mission. 

Hope ya have a great week. Please read the talk you will all enjoy.

-Elder Loertscher
