Prayer Works

Wow I have really had another great week! On Tuesday we committed Roy Gomez to baptism and he will be baptized April 8th, so pretty soon๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ. We just went over the qualifications and I was pretty blunt and just said who cares about somebody if you are trying to follow Jesus and you know the Gospel is true and he said that that is exactly what he needed to hear and so he will be baptized April 8th! 

I lost my CTR ring for a couple days and it was brand new and I was really sad and so I knelt down and prayed and then felt the impression to read my scriptures and I did and then when I got up to go help Elder LeFevre with something I felt a hard thing hit me in the back, and I saw my ring land on the bed!!! I immediately knelt down and gave a prayer of thanks for the Lord comforting me by me finding my ring. Funny enough yesterday’s subject was on prayer and so I had an opportunity to share that experience and it felt so awesome to do so ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ.

We met with an awesome kid named Austin Montoya and taught him about prophets and prayer and then used his interests (being an EMT) to show that in a way as missionaries we are saving people lives as well. We talked about the comfort that comes from having the knowledge of the Plan of Salvation and he wanted to learn a lot more about it and is super interested which is awesome! Roy Gomez and his little brother Danny came to church, along with Luis and Marycruz in Raft River. Luis is really progressing and we hope that here soon we will be able to extend a baptismal date but I don’t know for sure right now. 

We had a Zone Conference this Wednesday and basically in the middle of Zone Conference President stood up and said “I feel impressed that we should go to Shashona Falls to admire one of the great creations from the hands of our Lord Jesus Christ”, so we rounded up and went there and took a bunch of pictures and it was absolutely beautiful!!! I forgot my camera at home so I will bring it next week so I can send all the gorgeous pictures I took. At zone Conference we talked about the new Easter Initiative that is coming out and this message will truly bring peace to those that stand in need of comfort. 

I testify that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. I know that God is there and hears even the simplest prayers, as long as they are sincere. I testify that it requires action to have your prayers answered. Thanks so much for all of your prayers and support!

Con Amor,

Elder Saunders

How crazy, we were at one of their members house, Cheryl Webb Darrington and they realized the connection to my Aunt Pam Darrington. This picture popped up on Facebook. Oh the blessings of missionary service.
