We went on a few member splits this week and many of the members are excited about missionary work. I was happy to give a talk about spreading the love of God in sacrament meeting. The blessings are flowing in every single way as we continually improve in every aspect. Many seeds are being planted and many children of God are experiencing the blessings of the restored gospel. We are preparing for mission leadership council this Friday as well as helping the Georgian Zone Leaders this Thursday on our exchanges. So much to do all the time and it's great!
Many investigators have quit smoking or overcome difficult obstacles for baptisms and we will be happy to see them baptized Saturday. It is so neat to see the joy,happiness and change this gospel brings to all people. There is no greater work! It is a privilege to be able to spread this perfect message daily. We were blessed with so much work this week and many new investigators. It was a week to remember and the success is made evident from the Lord.
Our companionship is doing great we continue to push each other all the time out of love and respect. We see the good in each other and notice how this companionship will prepare us for the future especially for marriage. Elder Jowers is a great man and I love and respect him. We learn more and more from each other each day.
I am doing great just enjoying the blessings that come from this service and I try to make every day last. The days seem to blend together and fly by. I love the simplicity of the service and how we get to serve everyday with no other worries or cares. I took a minute the other day to ponder and write down the changes of last transfer that we were able to help inspire and I was overcome with gratitude and love for this work and the missionaries we serve. I love you all and I love reading your emails. I pray for you all daily and I hope you notice the blessings and an increased portion of the spirit. Love you all and miss you!
Love Elder Lunt
To the missionaries:
Welcome all new missionaries! What a great way to start of the first full week of the transfer. Every week we continue to see the innumerable blessings and opportunities that surround us. The Lord has a plan for each one of us in the specific areas and companionships in which we reside. It is our part to figure out why and let the service we render change us.
2 Corinthians &12 And herein I give advice: for this is expedient for you, who have begun before, not only to do, but also to be forward a year ago. For if there be first a willing mind, accepted according to that a man hath, not according to that he hath not.
With all the changes, young trainers, leadership, new areas or whatever the situation may be. You may feel that you are alone or that there is nothing special or superior about you and your ability. We must maintain recollection that The Lord can work miracles with anyone who is humble, diligent and has a willing heart and mind.
Mosiah &24 "O then, how ye ought to impart of the substance that ye have one to another. I would that ye say in your hearts that: I give not because I have not, but if I had I would give."
Elders and Sisters, we all "have". Let us remove the artificial barriers that we unconsciously create in our minds. We all have capacity, strength and faith enough because we all have the right to the grace and enabling power of Jesus Christ. Let that propel you, mold and shape you. Take confidence in who we represent! Wear it! We all play a significant role in this mission. Recognize what you do have and magnify it by sharing it.
Mark For all did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, all her living.
Omni Yea, come unto him, and offer your whole souls as an offering unto him, and continue in fasting and praying, and endure to the end; and as the Lord liveth ye will be saved.
We love you all!
Love Elder Lunt & Jowers
