Beautiful Sunset in Iowa!
HEY!! HELLO!! HEY!!
It’s been another great week here in the mission field, in the Waukee Iowa! Draper Days sounded super fun.. and the boys look like they are definitely ready for a good hunt.. haha.. Ryan is down for a little bit he’s still alive that’s good.. love you man.. get better soon.. So the crazy thing is.. ,the N......, the ones we live with, were down in Utah for a little bit. I would of sent you some stuff if I would have known.. they didn’t have a whole lot of time though.. Brother N...........s dad lives pretty close to the Draper temple, small world huh?. Keep having plenty of fun!
This week we experienced a few new changes in the ward. On Thursday we had sisters come into the ward, like I was telling you about.. We split the ward, now we don’t get to see everyone we’ve been working with as much. It’s all good though, the work will move forward faster with two sets here now.. The whole zone now has two sets of missionaries in every ward. so its super cool to see the hastening of the work happen right in front of us. We didn’t have a lot of time this week to do a lot of missionary work, do to the changes and stuff, we’ve been getting a lot of stuff ready for the new missionaries coming in.. it’s all part of the zone leader stuff, we have a good time with it though. I really enjoy doing it all as well..
This Sunday we had a crazy thing happen at church... one of the recent converts that was baptized about a year ago, decided to come to church.. but.. he came with a bat and wasn’t too happy with the church and what’s going on with his life. Luckily he didn’t do anything super crazy.. We had to go out with our ward mission leader, who happens to be a cop, and talk to him a little bit. Everything worked out great and no one was hurt.. Things that people will do sometimes.. people are crazy..
We had a couple of great lessons this week, with a few of the investigators that we’ve been working with.. Sometimes I wonder how people can deny the spirit when it hits them super hard.. But hey we just have to help them recognize it, because the gospel is true and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Christ’s church here on the earth, God will answer anyone if they will but ask God with faith in Christ, a sincere heart and real intent! The great thing about the work is that it is so true and that’s something no one can take from me at all... No matter the bad times and hard times, you can always know that the work is true and that motivates you to do better.. I love the work!
LOVE ELDER KIRTON!
