Week 96: Elder Holland


Zach and Austin Chambers during Elder Holland visit
Hey everyone!

Our week was good! Unfortunately, Jackie decided to stop taking the lessons for right now because she doesn't feel she is ready to pay tithing right now. That and a couple other of the commandments are some of her hang ups. Although that was sad, we were able to set a couple of the kids we have been teaching for baptism this month. We are still pushing hard in making a lot of member visits because we have such good members in our areas! It is nice to have strong support from your ward members as a missionary! Considering where these wards were when I first got here, they have grown so much!

Elder Holland visited our mission this past week in a combined conference between our mission and the other Las Vegas Mission. He took group pictures with both missions, shook hands with all 400 missionaries, and trained us on how to improve our teaching skills.  Him and President Lynn G. Robbins of the presidency of the seventy
have apparently been on the road for the past 10 days or so, presiding at meetings and conducting leadership training all over the southwest.  Elder Holland talked about the importance of helping our investigators
to feel the Spirit wherever they are at in terms of their progression towards baptism. It was such a good training.

Things are going really well! I love y'all and hope you have a great week!
