We still don't have a ton of investigators yet, but we're working with a few that Sis. Verkist was already teaching & we're visiting several less-active members. Most of the less-active people that we visit are super friendly! It's awesome! :) We look forward to visiting & working with them more.
Yesterday was a really awesome Sunday because so many recent converts & members returning to activity were there! That's the simple joy & main reason of being a missionary--seeing so many people come closer to God & Christ and watching the change for the better in their lives :) One man named Fred who was baptized in January shared his testimony in Sacrament Meeting. It was his first Sunday back in a few weeks because he had been in the hospital due to a heart attack, pneumonia, and a badly infected foot. He said he always knew that members of the church were always very kind & giving & cared for one another, but while he was in the hospital he truly experienced & felt the love of the ward & how he really is part of a family. Sister Verkist afterward leaned over & said to me "And THAT is why we're on a mission." Amen to that! :)
I know the Church is SO true! I hope you will also seek to find it out for yourself.
Be strong & faithful because Jesus was, and please pray for my Mum as she has gallstones & may need surgery.
Have a great week!
