A No Picture Week :(

This email was sent on October 17, 2016

This week was a pretty run of the mill type week. We had a hard time getting ahold of our investigators and knocked a lot of doors, but it was still fun. 

We were able to get in and teach the Cintura family once this past week and it was interesting. Unfortunately after we set the baptismal date with them they came across some anti-Mormon material that raised some questions. We answered them as best we could and tried to help them understand that there is opposition in all things. Because of this, Satan will do everything in his power to stop the work of the Lord. As well, we asked them the question: "If you lived in the times of Jesus Christ and wanted to learn about The Savior, would you go to the Pharisees and Sadducees who hated Him or to His apostles?" As well, we emphasized prayerfully studying the Book of Mormon every day for at least 10 or 15 minutes because that will help us avoid deception. Those who read it will realize that there's no way that Joseph Smith could have written the book on his own and used it to build a church. 

But anyways, the father of Marie-Antonietta finally came back from his work trip in Dubai, so we are going to start teaching him because he seemed very promising before he left. I talked to him a little bit yesterday at church and he said that he was really tired from having to change his sleep schedule but that he's happy to be back with his family. 

As well, we taught 2 new people this week. First one was Carlos. He's from Mexico and has a few work associates who are Mormon. He has read in the Book of Mormon before and was actually reading Jesus the Christ by James E. Talmage so he knows about our religion a little bit. But he had a question about the trinity and the nature of the Godhead and it took us all of 30 minutes to get that answered for him. So we might teach him slowly, but he'll get there. The second person was Borris. He is from Venezuela and has good desires to learn more. He right now sells life insurance and expressed that it was a difficult time for him economically. He said he found himself in a similar predicament as Joseph Smith and desires to know which church is true, so we challenged him to find the answer through prayer and careful study of the scriptures. 

I read a talk by Hugh B Brown entitled, "God is the Gardener". It is my current favorite talk right now. 

That's really all I've got, unfortunately no pictures this week.
