so the big news this week was we had a huge mission meeting and president is making some huge changes. the mission is changing completely. there are some big changes but my favorite is a smaller change. president figured out that we as a mission aren’t doing too many street contacts. so everyday we have to contact 2 people in the street and talk about/give them a *book of mormon. it is something that i would sometimes do but now we have to do it and we have seen so many miracles come from it. we are now having some of the best contacts in my mission. i was thinking about it and when i got set apart i was blessed that i would see a lot of fruits and have a lot of happiness from talking to everyone at the end of my mission. i was thinking about that about 2 weeks ago. i was praying to know what i could do to see that happen and this was an answer to my prayer. lets see if some of these contacts turn into investigators. like i said it is something so small but it is going to change the mission.
we had a much better week with our investigators. this week we should see a baptism. he has been investigating for about a year now. we haven’t had to do to much but it will still be sweet to see him get baptized. also we are working with a family. the dad wants nothing to do with us and he doesn’t want to get married to his angel of a girlfriend..... so she can’t get baptized right now but the son and daughter are really progressing. the son was all into drugs, wine, and beer has gone a week without anything and is doing great. they went to church yesterday and loved it. also we are working with another family of 8. only 4 have interest but i know that the others will come along. they are wanting to get baptized in a month. i will keep you guys updated as time moves along.
this week i went on a interchange with a new elder from vegas. he has 3 weeks in the mission and he is honestly one of the funnest guys that i know. i have never laughed so hard in my life. one of my favorite part of the mission is all the people that i have met. it has honestly been the biggest blessing for me to get to know so many people and backgrounds.
i’m loving the mission and what ‘im learning. the mission is great and it just keeps getting better. i wouldn’t trade it for the world. the church is true.
*Elder Magnusson will be talking to a lot of people
about the Book of Mormon in the upcoming weeks.
