Week 27 ~ November 18, 2013

Well hello everyone!! It was great to get all your emails! Thank you so much!! So this week has been another great week! It started a little shaky but things picked up nicely! Thursday we had a zone conference where three different zones get together and they give us this huge training. So yes it was very exciting and i feel like all i want to do is go out and teach people about jesus now and baptize them! haha but anyway in the training we learned about how we are held to a high standard. as missionaries and as members of the church. we focused on the missionary one at the meeting. but Pres. Mullen told us that the lord is hastening his work and that he has a new vision for the mission. So President Mullen told us that he had received revelation for the mission and he said that we can be bringing more souls unto christ. he said that last month we had 35 baptisms throughout the mission. he said that the lord wants that doubled and that we can be having 3 lessons per day with 4 of our investigators at church every week, our church attendance up by 10%, AND last but not least he said that each companionship can be having a baptism every week! So I am letting the Lord have me and he can use me as his instrument. so from me he will be getting one baptism a week. i have so much faith that is very much possible and that i can live up to this standard that the Lord has for me. its so great! i can just feel the excitement that the lord has for his work!  so that night after the training we picked up a new investigator! then saturday we got another investigator ( we will have to pass him off to the ysa sisters though :(  )  but then saturday morning our ward mission leader called up me and sister stratton and had some very exciting news!! he said that he and his wife have been working with this person and that she has agreed to go to church and that she wanted to learn more about our church and so we are now going to teach her the discussions is our ward mission leaders home!! so its just like things are falling into place to succeed!! its so exciting!! :) Saturday we also had a lesson with some less actives that think they are active but never come to church so we called them unto repentance and they were at church yesterday! :) saturday was jsut a day full of miracles! then on sunday we had like 4 less actives at church and 2 investigators so we are slowly getting to our goals! that is less than one week of the announcement of the Lords new vision. The members are starting to see that we wont leave them alone until they get us people to teach so it has been so great!! i love it. This is the Lords work and he is doing it! i love this time that i ahve to be a missionary! :) i miss you all but sorry im not coming back anytime soon ;)!!!
Love, Sister Tori Johnson
