Build the Kingdom of God

My Dearest Family,

I don't know what happened to the chat today. I think something was up with the internet in the store or here in the cyber but either way it was great to hear that you all are doing so great!

It was another super quick week! I feel like every week just goes faster and faster! We had the Zone Training this week which went really well. Presidente Camarillo came also which was nice being able to see him. We talked a lot about in what we should be focusing on right now. One thing that we are all working very diligently in is the Book of Mormon. I truly believe that one who reads the Book of Mormon and receives an answer that it is true through the power of the Holy Ghost will never be able to deny that testimony and witness they have received. I believe this witness and testimony is fundamental to find peace and joy. Until we come to know that the Book of Mormon is truly the word of God and a true book, we can not feel that peace and comfort. As I continue to read from it every day I can truly feel and know that the Book of Mormon is true. I invite all to continue to read from its words everyday that they might find the joy that comes from it.

Another thing that we are really focusing on right now is how to find people to teach. Lately it has been pretty dry here in the area with references. We have received a couple references but they don't seem to want too much with us. They listen but really don't show too much interest. We found a couple of my old investigators and they look like they are ready to listen again! I hope we will be able to help them receive this gospel. 

We have been watching the worldwide broadcast a lot! I really liked it. It shows very well how we should work together to build the kingdom of God. Here is the link if you would like to see it again.

I am doing really well. We have the conference talks finally from the general conference and there are a lot of great things to share with from there. I would definitely suggest reading through all of those again! 

May you all have a great week. Take care of each other and don't let mom get sick again eh! Haha. I am glad to hear that you are better now mom but take special care this week!
Love you all!!
