The Cantelope Approach

Mom's Note:  She sent this email out on 27 March 2017.

Hello Everyone! This week we have been working on just getting investigators. This area is so different from both of my previous areas, we have been switching it up a lot! We have been trying to find the less-active members of the church, but most of them haven’t been answering their door, so we have been tracting around their street. We meet this guy, who was Catholic, like most people in this area, and after we knew that he was about to turn us away, I offered to help him with his family history. He said that his wife had done a lot of work and he invited us inside and he showed us picture of his family and of the country where their ancestors were from (it turned out to be a cute and tiny island near the Dominican Republic). So Sister Nelson gave him our number, so that he could give it to his wife and we left. 

We gave a church and temple grounds tour to T, our one investigator. I feel so blessed to be right next to the temple! Even though he didn't go to church the next day, it was still a neat experience. 

Apparently Sister Nelson had tried to see this one less-active family before, but they kept rescheduling, and usually that means that they aren't that they aren't ready yet, so we went to their door, uninvited with a cantaloupe, and they welcomed us right in! They seemed to have strong factual testimonies of our prophet, but they wouldn't come to church. So we tried to help them out and told them that they needed to act on their faith in order to receive an answer about whether or not they should come back to church. Then they gave us a case of water, which was a huge blessing, because we were about to run out! Our goal this week, is to watch General Conference with them! I am really excited for General Conference this weekend!! I know GREAT things are going to be said and the Spirit will testify of the truth of it all!! I know that the Prophet, President Monson, or one of his Apostles will answer your questions that you have about LITERALLY ANYTHING. I am really excited!  

I love y'all and hope you have a blessed week! 😀💚😁❤
