I hope things have been great with all of you! Miracles abounded this past week and I am really excited to share the outcome.
Things are going great on my end! We have had a crazy week. Since I got transferred to this new area, I have had pretty much no time to sit and even think. We haven't been able to spend too much time in our area because we have been helping our zone members by giving them rides or even just spending time with them. That's the idea behind this assignment is that more work gets done when the other members of the zone are able to get out and work. Elder Palmer can do a lot on our own, but it's more important that we have a unified, working zone of 14 missionaries rather than 2 really hard working missionary. Kind of like in 1 Nephi 4, "It's better that [two men] perish than an entire [zone] dwindle in [laziness]."
Elder Palmer and I implemented an idea from one of our zone members this past Saturday. It essentially involved our whole zone fast together and to go out and tract from 10 am to 8 pm, and to just see the miracles that come as a result. We saw tons of miracles as a zone. Investigators were just popping out of the wood work! We ended the day teaching 23 lessons as a zone, finding close to 25 investigators, and committing 3 people to baptism. What is even better is that success came from across the zone, and when the zone is working, the Work is progressing!
It is amazing how revelation works! Although we didn't have that idea, Elder Palmer felt inspired to implement it. That goes to show you that God definitely answers our prayers through other people.
Have a great week!
