Safety for the Soul

Hello everyone at home. Hope everything is going well for you. This week has been great. We have talked to some great people.

I have the best story to tell you. We have an investigator named Adelia. She is from Brazil and is a very nice old lady. She has a crazy personality and is full of life. She is refusing to come to church on the grounds that she isn't a church going person but we are making some progress on that front. This week we went over and helped her with her lds singles account. She signed up for an lds dating website and she isn't even lds. We went over and helped her upload some pictures onto her profile. So hilarious. She is so excited to start dating some mormon men. Haha. Maybe if she meets some mormon guy then she will have to come to church. We will see.

This week we emphasized with the Ready family about Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon. We gave them an assignment to read Alma 32 and then watch Safety for the Soul which is a talk by Elder Holland. It is the really powerful testimony of the Book of Mormon. We are just praying that they get an answer to their prayer about the Book of Mormon. We were trying to think of a way to be bold and so we thought we would give them a bold talk to listen to. Elder Johnson says the best way to be bold is to let Elder Holland be bold for us. Booyah.

We had zone conference on Tuesday. It is the last one with President Watrous. Sad. The Watrous' are the best. We talked about the gathering of Israel using the Book of Mormon. It made me very excited to be a gatherer. The mission is very excited to welcome President Bowen and see what he brings to the mission. He is coming July 1.

This is the last week of the transfer. It is only a 5 week transfer because that way President Watrous can make the last transfers. Next transfer will be for 7 weeks. Most likely I will stay with Elder Johnson. Hopefully because he is the best. He is super fun to be around.

We have been playing tennis in the morning for exercise. It is awesome that our apartment complex has tennis courts. I am teaching Elder Johnson how to play and he is learning so fast. We also practice juggling a lot. It is fun to do before bed.

I love the gospel and I love sharing it with people.
Love,
Elder Matthew Arnold
