How has your week been? Mine has been pretty amazing. On Tuesday, we
had a mission tour with Elder Arnold of the seventy. He was amazing.
He talked a lot about the importance of us working with members. He
also told us how we need to work with members. He really focused on
the importance of members in the conversion of our investigators. They
are essential. It was a fantastic meeting.
On Wednesday, we went to the baptism of Doris and Camilo. They are an
amazing couple with a super strong testimony of the gospel. Even
better, guess how they were found? A member! They are a friend of
someone in the Spanish ward in Hilsboro. It is awesome because they
are the first addition to our group since I've been here. It's great.
We have really focused a lot this week on getting members to invite
their friends to activities and share the gospel with their family and
friends. I have yet to find a new investigator by knocking on doors so
hopefully the members can help us out a little.
Other than that, not a lot is going on here in Portland. We are going
to be working really hard these last two weeks of the transfer. We get
to go to the temple tomorrow which is super exciting. We also have our
mission Christmas party on Friday. That is going to be incredible! I
can't wait. Christmas is getting really close. It is super exciting.
