I am so sorry for not emailing the group email the last two weeks, I ran out of time and wanted to be obedient so I just didn’t email anything, but good thing that I am emailing now!
Elder Cooke and I have been having a great time this last week and met 78 teenagers at the fair and know all of their names and so we can’t wait to see them around, call them by their name and talk to them about the gospel. Also this week we had the opportunity to go to Zone Conference and we learned that the people we should be focusing on are:
- People between 15-25 years of age
- Part member Families
- People who are spiritually poor
- People who are temporally poor
We have been doing quite a bit of service and love it. I am learning all the ins and outs of being a cowboy so ya’all better watch out.
That is what we have been doing and we are hoping for a lot of new investigators in the coming weeks. We have 12 Potential Investigators from people we have contacted and we are praying to make them new investigators.
We have been trying to set something up with the Gallegos but that are saying they are busy so we are just going to show up one night and just teach them. haha But please pray that the love they feel will overcome the fear they have of being rejected from their family.
I absolutely love the people here and we are just trying to talk to everyone and find those who are of the House of Israel. I love the gospel and I am so grateful I was born into it, but more importantly that I was able to have my own conversion to the doctrine.
Thanks so much for all of the love and support, the area and people need them, and I know there are people everywhere waiting to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
We have been blessed to receive texts on a weekly basis from those where Elder Saunders is serving. They share their deep love for him and his willingness to serve. They send pictures which bring us so much joy and happiness. Here are some of those text and pics:
