Lets say this week has been an interesting one.
Were assisting the less active who moved to Utah by cleaning and readying the house to make it show-ready. With the house being 16000 square feet, we need a lot of help..."ask the missionaries, they can help you"... Were bringing in 2/3 of the zone to assist in readying the house. The scheduled cleaning is tomorrow, it'll be a party
This week has been one that I'm grateful for the Atonement. Few people from the ward were spreading false rumors about us which added additional stress on the missionary work in the area. Sunday was an interesting day, but remembering and contemplating what the Atonement can allow to occur made me have the strength to accomplish and forgive anything.
On a more happier note (ish), we received 23 REFERRALS from a local fair. Lets say were gonna be busy for the next little while. The referrals are a new thing in the TNM. All due to this system at a fair nearly 8 months ago, a branch of 15 active has blossomed to 125 plus. Next week ill be sure to send a photo so it can be used more throughout the world. Without this referral, a nearby area wouldn't have 107 REFERRALS, now that's power in numbers. Hope a 15% are legitimate.
Till next time
