October 28,2009

Hola!This transfer is already halfway over. Time really is passing quickly. This week was a very good week. I feel that the Lord is really blessing us with success right now. We were able to have 6 investigators at sacrament meeting last Sunday and with the other two companionships in the ward, we had 11 total. We're having a lot more success getting members to come to lessons with us as well. Probably because they see the investigators at church and activities and get to meet them. We've also set 5 baptisimal dates for November right now. We're putting together a daily schedule of things for the investigators to stay focused on these dates and feel the spirit everyday. We're goign to try to have short visits of 5 minutes by us or ward members leading up to their dates to get them excited and bring the spirit. The family of 3 that we met at the talent night absolutely loves the church adn all the teachings. Their date is november 22, but we will probably have it sooner. They've been converted since the first lesson and are excited about baptism and love attending church. We have been very grateful for this family and the member family that has been fellowshipping these investigators. It is the perfect example of member missionary work- and how much easier the work truly is. This family prayed about and found someone to invite to the talent night. The family they invited had been prepared. The spiritual level of these lessons is so much higher because the investigators are diligently searching, reading, and progressing. It's so exciting to feel and see the joy that the gospel is truly bringing into their lives. Monday night, we planned an FHE and made desserts as well. Yesterday was mission conference and it was all about commitment. The story of the Anti-Nephi-Lehis was used a lot and there are great lessons in this story. They stayed true and dedicated to their covenants and commitment to the Lord even until death. In our zone, we all wrote a weakness we have on a piece of paper and then went and buried them in the flower bed outside of the chapel. I think we should've flushed them down the toilet. It has been flurrying a little almost every day, but we haven't had much of an accumulation again yet. I've been staying warm with the package that dad sent. I'll send pictures of the red long johns soon. I'm glad to hear that everyone seems to be doing well. I love everyone adn thanks for your love adn prayers. The Lord definetely is blessing me adn my companion and the investigators.Love Elder Dunlap
