Hello from Mt Gambier!
We had a so-so week. We had most of our appointments fall through with our investigators. That has been dissapointing. We have been going threw the complete list of less actives and lost sheep, members of the church where we do not know where they live. We have met some interesting people on the way. One less active sister is quite promising i believe. Most less actives are connected to nonmembers, it is a great finding technique. In this case this certain sister has a 14 year old son who is not baptised. She just believes she hasn’t had enough time for church for the past 15 years. We will help her be aware that she does have enough time. With something as exciting as baptism she will want to make the sacrifice to come to church. To help them endure to the end we will help them catch the vision of attending the temple as a family. Their progression in this life can never be enough. The gospel is like a treadmill, if we are standing still in our progression we are actually moving backwards, away from God.
Going to go now. If we have time today we might drive to Port Macdonald. The weather is bit crazy, we haven’t had spring, it switches from summer to winter every other day. It’s been a long winter, pretty much as long as i have been in Mt Gambier, which is 8 months. Sorry i don’t have much time to write today.
Love you all heaps
