"Whether we descended from the pioneers or not, it is wise to remember that the glory of their sacrifice belongs to them. We can’t place the trophies they earned for their faith and industry on our mantels. We can’t pin the medals they earned for their courage and bravery on our chests.
Our generation will need to stand on our own achievements, not on those of previous generations."
So our investigators are doing pretty well. We found out that Stacey is allergic to the sun, so we haven't been able to meet with her, but we are going to try and focus more on her daughter Arissa. We haven't been able to meet with Isaac this week, because he's been working so much. Taika is doing really well, her boyfriend is a member. Unfortunately though she is out of town for a few weeks, but she said that she is reading and praying everyday! She also told us that when she gets back, her parents want to meet with us as well. - Her dad is a member of a Methodist reformed church in Pella and is pretty open about her meeting with us. Her mom is from India and doesn't really have a belief in God though. - Mary is doing very well, we just have to teach her a little slower because even though she is about 55, she has the mentality of a 10 year old I think, she is a really sweet spirit though. It's amazing with her how she feels the spirit and wants to do what is right. Oh and we are meeting with a former investigator you might remember me talking about, Robert. He is really smart, he's read all of the book of mormon and thinks that it's a really good book, but he's not sure if Joseph Smith is a prophet. So because he is a huge seeker of knowledge and he wants to understand everything, we are reading the D&C with him. We are working with him to feel his anwsers.
Thank you so much for everything! Thank you for all your love and support and for your prayers. I love you so much!
