Hi Mom!

My week has been good! We have a few investigators going to church. One is going to get baptized this Saturday hopefully. He is the rock star. We had a talent show this week as missionaries so that members could bring friends. It turned out really good. Me and my companion sang a song that I played on the guitar. Our investigator also sang. It was fun. We decided to do an activity for the zone. We have been focusing a lot on Christlike attributes! So we printed out an activity that there is in Preach my Gospel and had the missionaries fill it out. At the end of the change we will have everyone do it again to see how we have improved. We talked about a few other things as well. I really like the talk this last conference by Elder Kevin W. Pearson, "Stay by the tree". We actually put a quote from that talk on the activity that we handed out to the zone. The quote is "Once we enter into covenants with God, there is no going back. Giving in, giving up, and giving out are not options. In the kingdom of God, there is a standard of excellence for exaltation. It requires valiant discipleship! There is no room for average or complacent disciples. Average is the enemy of excellence, and average commitment will prevent you from enduring to the end." The Savior clearly stated what he wanted from us when he said, "Therefore, what manner of men ought ye to be? Verily I say unto you, even as I am."-3 Nephi 27:27. We must all become like Christ and live the standard of excellence that he has given, so that when he comes, like it says in Moroni 7:48, “We shall see Him as he is.”

Christ lives! He came and will come again. "Our daily discipleship will determine our eternal destiny!" by Kevin W. Pearson.  Love you and hope you have a great week!
