There is so much potential in our area, but it's been hard to see the success that we've been having because we don't have a lot of set appointments and things keep falling through. Yesterday we were walking to church and we were talking about how we could improve our teaching. There was a missionary training broadcast a few weeks ago and they focused on teaching repentance and baptizing converts. We were talking about how we could change the focus of our teaching to get people to repent. As we talked about these ideas it hit me how important the work that I'm doing is. We are literally calling people to repent; to change their lives so they can have lasting happiness. It's funny, people are so focused on the temporary happiness that worldly things can bring them. But what happens when those things aren't there any more. Where do you turn? Heavenly Father promises us the greatest joy of all, eternal life. This gift is literally free to us because of Jesus Christ. All that He asks is that we have faith, REPENT, are baptized so we can receive the gift of the Holy Ghost and endure to the end. What an incredible promise.
Remember that we can find lasting happiness as we turn to God and leave behind the things of the world. I love you all!!
