April 28, 2014 Email

Dear Family,

It's great to hear everyone had a fun time in their events and activities. Stockton must have had a good time in honor band otherwise he wouldn't have done it at all. Parker seems to be into track a lot if he's trying high jump. Brigham must be happy to be able to play baseball. Dad seems to be busy with all the work that needs to be done around the yard and with the regular work. Just always encourage the guys to get to work and don't stop till it's done.

Things have been crazy this week here as well. We had tons of lessons with investigators and less-actives and we thought we would get them all to church this week. Unfortunately, regardless of all those lessons, no one showed up to church yesterday. The sisters that double cover our Ward got an investigator out to church and a less-active, I believe. We all do really well with the Ward and the Ward always does awesome at fellowshipping investigators that we bring in. It's always important to have the members get involved with new investigators so they feel welcomed into the Ward.

This week we had a baptism for the sisters' investigators. They have been teaching this part member family for a while and were super stoked that they got them to commit to baptism. They had a father and a daughter baptized and confirmed yesterday. The daughter's baptism was in St. George, Utah about a week ago and the father was baptized on Thursday. They both got confirmed and were welcomed gladly into the Ward.

Missionary life is so much fun here and is full of joy to bring others into the church that we know to be true. All who serve The Lord diligently and without complaint, them will The Lord bless and guide them into the celestial glory of heaven. Never forget that you are precious to God and that he will never give up in you so long as you are willing to change.

I miss you all and love your letters every week to help me go on with this calling and responsibility that I've been given.


Elder Smith

WHAT WE BELIEVE:  Baptism by immersion in water by one having authority is the first saving ordinance of the gospel and is necessary for an individual to become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and to receive eternal salvation. All who seek eternal life must follow the example of the Savior by being baptized and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost.
