This week was good. Tuesday we tried contacting a mormon.org referral. Turns out, the guy's friends were just playing a joke on him. That was hard. We decided to stick around Bluff for a bit, and knocked on a part member couples home. The wife, Anne, is a member but the husband, Jerry is not. They were very friendly towards us. they invited us to come back, so let's hope something comes of that. Then we went out and taught Niyah one of the recent convert lessons. That went well. We then went and tried a bunch of people, but people are still out of town.
Wednesday, we went to a recent convert's house. Briannon has been baptized for a couple of months now, and we are just trying to keep her and her family at church. They are preparing to move to Cortez, CO. So they have been in and out of town. We went and taught Don Tsosie also. He actually was at church this last Sunday, so that was pretty neat! We also taught the Laughings, and they are getting closer and closer to baptism.
Thursday, we went to Blanding for district meeting. It was good. We came back to Bluff, and worked around, but pretty much no one was home, so that was disappointing
Friday, we had weekly planning, and that took a lot longer than it usually did. So we stayed in Bluff for the rest of the day. It was just a long day.
Saturday, we went and saw Betty, and we shared a message with her. She is awesome. She brought Yvonne, her 104 year old Shima, to Church yesterday, so that was pretty neat! Wilbur also came to church for the first time since I've been in Bluff! We also saw the Gruette's later that day. Gene is a recent convert, and he is just an awesome dude! We shared a message with them and Jackie brought up some really neat insights. They are an amazing family.
Yesterday, we went to church and there were people there that I haven't seen in a while. There were more Dine than Anglo's at Todah. That was super neat!
In studies this morning, I was reading the Teachings of Joseph Smith, One part, he said, "When we understand the nature of God, we know how to come unto him, and he knows how to come unto us." That is such a true principle. As we understand the nature of God, we will start to recognize the blessings as they come. I've seen that a lot this week.
Anyway, I hope you all are well. Love the Lord, and keep the faith.
