Busy With the Work July 9, 2012

Hello Everyone,
Well, I'm really short on time today, so I will just talk about a couple of things that happened this week.  First I met with President and Sister Mullen, and I already love them so much.  They are wonderful people who have great testimonies, and they are going to do great things for this mission.  Secondly, we had an investigator come to his first sacrament meeting with his grandson.  It has been such a challenge to get him to come to church in the past, not because he didn't want to, but because something always seemed to come up.  So this week it worked out perfectly.  His name is Forest and he was actually a referral from the sister missionaries in our district.  He has told us numerous times that he knows the church is true and he knows he needs to be baptized, but he just needs to find a way to make it work with a promise he made to his wife before she passed away.  (a long story involving a promise to always watch over his grandsons.)  This was a big step for him to be able to come to church though.  He definitely felt the spirit there and said he had a good experience.  He got a little emotional about his wife at the end of sacrament meeting so he went home after that.  
Also last week while we were on exchanges with our zone leaders,  we got into the topic of what dads calling was.  As it turns out, this missionary was in your district dad.  His name is Elder Jergensen and he would have been in your district in September of 2010.  He actually remembers you and mom pretty well and said that you had helped him out a lot while he was in the MTC.  I also found out that one of our AP's was in your district at the same time as well, Elder Manuirirangi(spelling is most likely wrong).  Anyway it was really cool to hear other missionaries experiences with you in your calling, and I thought you might like to know that.  This week is looking to be quite a busy week with meetings, and hopefully some church tours that look promising.  Sorry for the shortish email, but I hope you all have a great week.  
Elder Stacey
