Well, it is my last few days in Waco. I will be leaving for Denton, Texas soon. I am really sad to be leaving Waco, because Waco is the coolest! But I am also really excited for Denton! I am sure that there are great people there too. My companion is going to Arlington, and two elders are coming to Waco. I am sure that they will do a good job with the area, cuz there are awesome things waiting for them here!
The church is starting a month long Christmas campaign on mormon.org. Y'all should check it out! They are encouraging members to use social media to share the word!
It invites all to consider their feelings about Christmas and Jesus Christ and is part of an ongoing effort to help others understand how we worship Jesus Christ.
Members should go to mormon.org and post links on Facebook and other social media sites, as well as in emails.
There is also free music for download here.
It is a beautiful 78 degrees today outside in Waco. We love not having to wear jackets in December.
We have been teaching so many lessons. We are trying to teach every person that we meet, instead of just contacting them. As we ask to say an opening prayer a few minutes into each contact, miracles have been happening.
Our numbers of lessons and new investigators has exploded here in Waco. We had 41 investigators on planning day, 25 of whom are keeping commitments, the others are new investigators that we have only taught one lesson to them. We weren't sure how we were going to teach that many people, but now all we have to do is tell the elders who are coming about them, and they can do the rest.
