February 6th, 2012

The mission is still going great!  I'm loving it more and more everyday and feel closer to my Heavenly Father everyday as well.  The work seems to be picking up and we seem to have more lessons to teach so that's good.   We still haven't had a lesson with Luis.  We haven't been able to catch him at home.  That is annoying, but we have a lesson with the Smith family on Sunday so that will be good.  They seem to be interested and we gave them a book of Mormon when we saw them last.  Faith is still not really progressing and her mom works most Sundays now so she cant really come to church anymore and her dad wont bring her which is really annoying, but oh well  I know that as long as we keep working with her and strengthening her faith that the Lord will find ways for her to get to church and open those doors.   We have been teaching an elderly couple the Tibbotts.  They are awesome.  They said they have had missionaries over before but that they wont change... ;) ha.  They feed us cake every time we go over.   We took a member with us last time and were there for almost 3 hours answering questions and clearing up things that they have heard.  It was a great lesson and we found out that Mrs. Tibbott is reading from the Book of Mormon.   She said that she gets a weird feeling when she picks it up but says its not a good feeling.  We encouraged her to keep reading and gave her some scriptures to read Mr. Tibbott is really stubborn but enjoys talking about our religion i feel like they are progressing and want to know more we just need to get them to church which will be pretty hard cause Mr. Tibbott has been home bound for about 4 years because of diabetes but  I think we will be able to get them to church within the next few weeks.   We have also been going to a part member families house and teaching them.  The mom,  Susan has had missionaries over a lot but whenever they would have a spiritual thought she would leave the room so we decided to start doing bible thoughts and she started joining us for those.  Now she is asking questions and bringing up her concerns about the church.  We got her to read out of the Book of Mormon and she had some really great questions about the chapter that we were able to answer perfectly and she seemed to get a lot out of it.   Her husband,  Brian was baptized a few years ago and said that she is talking to us about stuff that he didn't even know she was thinking, so its been really cool to see the changes in her.  I feel like she is really starting to progress.   Dang this work is awesome!   I love being out here and serving my Lord and Savior!   We have been busting our butts and I know the Lord sees that and is blessing us because of it.   I'm so thankful for this wonderful opportunity that I have to be out here and for the chance that I have to study the gospel and bring the happiness it has given me to others.
If everyone were like Moroni the gates of hell would be shut! -- great scripture!
Love Elder Jach
