I'm actually really happy that Curt is going to Independence, Missouri! I'll definitely give him lots of people to visit that are my friends from there. If he ever gets to go to Belton, I'll be sure to let him know.
But this week was way good! We decided to go and find a lot of people to start teaching. In our District Meeting, I said 20 new investigators, I don't know if we will hit 20, but its definitely pushing us to find as many as we can. But the best part about it is that the Lord is really blessing us with many opportunities to find people. We've been doing a lot of OYMing which I haven't done a whole lot on my mission. But we've been finding a lot of people to go visit because of it. We set up 2 appointments tonight for 4 potential investigators. So that is pretty exciting. On top of that, we were able to get 3 new investigators last week even though we didn't plan on getting that many. We kind of just planned on setting up a lot of lessons with them for this week. But Heavenly Father has been putting them in our path as we try to find them. One of our new investigators, Anasa, is 18 years old. His mom really wants him to be baptized! One of our members, Lusi, was talking to her about why she wanted to be baptized. I guess the mother said that she wants him to be baptized because of the example Lusi is. She saw that Lusi is a really good person and isn't going around doing a lot of the things that other young teens are doing around their koro and she wants her son to be like that. So it is just a really good example of how we can make a big difference by just being good disciples of Christ in all that we do. Setting an example to the world will show the people that we are followers of Christ and will make them wonder what it is that makes us who we are. Like it says in Matt 5:16 "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
Thanks for everything!
Love you guys!
Love, Elder Beilman
