week #20 -Linstead

Hello fam!

This week has been great.  Elder Jernigan and I have been working really hard.  We are working with a lot of good people who will hopefully make the choice to continue to progress towards our Heavenly Father through baptism, and partake of the wonderful blessings that come from it. 

We did a couple of cool things this week.  One was our family home evening with Mark and his family.  Mark's wife was not able to make it, but everything went great.  We discussed Eph. 6:8-15? with them and talked about putting on the whole armor of God.  I had drawn a picture of a man, and each piece of armor mentioned.  We had the kids color the man and the armor, and then the glue each piece of armor on to him.  The kids really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, they were not able to make it to church on account of a funeral.  They went to the Nine Night on Saturday night and stayed up literally all night there.  That is a very jamaican tradition. They said that they will come this next week though.

Another cool thing this week- We watched the restoration movie with a couple in our area. We were able to watch the whole thing with them and their little girl. We explained as we watched and they were able to understand it pretty well.  They loved the movie, and we committed them to pray to know if Joseph Smith is a true prophet or not.  They committed to do so. 

It is awesome to see how the spirit works on people.  Like I said last week, the spirit is ever present in this work.  It is there to testify of the truth of the things we say.  People feel it, so they listen to us.  It has also helped me to learn so much in the past few months.  I really feel like I am growing in a way that could not be accomplished elsewhere.

Nathan- I have seen a few small snakes here, and a lot of big frogs.  The campout you had sounded like a lot of fun.

Congrats on the ordination to a priest, Matthew!

Is everyone excited for General Conference this next week?  I am really excited for it.  It is going to be awesome to hear the prophets advice for us in these days. I know that we have a prophet of God on the earth in these days, and that Thomas S. Monson is the Lord's chosen prophet. He speaks with a convincing power and authority that cannot come any other way. I love to listen to his words. I would encourage you all to write down some questions you  have, and then listen for the answers as you watch conference. I can promise you that the spirit will help you to pick out the answer that your Heavenly Father has for you!

I love you guys! Enjoy the week. Stay safe! 
Love, Elder Pullan
