"Ammon said unto him: I am a man; and man in the beginning was created after the image of God, and I am called by his Holy Spirit to teach these things unto this people, that they may be brought to a knowledge of that which is just and true; And a portion of that Spirit dwelleth in me, which giveth me knowledge and also power according to my faith and desires which are in God."

Week 13 of 2011 E-mail 3/28/2011 Week 49

I was with the only girl yikes!
Hola Familia!

This past week has been good. The Elders in the Dalton East area had three baptisms this weekend! They were all spanish. Both the east and west (our area) have a lot of spanish. But, there is still a pretty noticeable difference between the amount in our area and theirs. Our area has more wealthy people and their area is not so wealthy. So, it's interesting how big of a difference there can be from one side of town to the other. But anyways, this past week we found a good number of new investigators. The ones that stand out right now are the two we found yesterday. We were tracting and we knocked on the door and a young lady came and we introduced ourselves and told her why we were there. There was another man there and she invited us in. They had their Bible on the table and they told us they had been studying. After talking for a min Elder Hedgecock started talking about the way back to heaven. The man (Solomon) asked what we believed the way was. We told him Jesus Christ is. It turns out that was the part they were reading in the bible where Jesus Christ says that he is the way. That was pretty cool! Then, we shared with them the last verse in 2 Nephi 31 to show that the Bible and the Book of Mormon testify of the same things. We ended up getting a return appointment this coming saturday with them. Their names are S. and M.. They seem pretty cool. I'll let ya know how it goes with them next week. We also went with Obispo Torres to see L. who is the Daughter of a member who was baptized around a year ago. We had quite a long lesson with her but it turned out pretty good. She says she's not sure about the whole being baptized thing right now. But, at the end of the lesson she was saying stuff like I feel better and I feel good. Stuff like that. After church yesterday we had dinner with O. G. (He's from El Salvador!) Then, we ran into this guy who was atheist/anti mormon. He was pretty lame haha. Then, we found S. and M. After that we went back to the church. The spanish ward had a missionary prep class and asked us to help with it. So, we paired up with some of the youth. I was with the only girl yikes! It seemed so weird haha! But, we did some roleplays teaching the Restoration in front of everybody. It was good. It was kinda funny though because the girl I was with had one of those fake babies for a class in school. During our roleplay the baby got a dirty diaper and so she had to leave. So, I was all alone for the last couple of minutes of our roleplay. I like roleplays so it was fine haha. But, I that's all this week. I love y'all!!!

This is Barry's Testimony he wants to share with the world.

I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Christ's true church. I know that Joseph Smith is his Prophet and that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live and they love us all. They invite all of us to come unto them through this restored Gospel and Church. I know that God has revealed these truths to me and I cannot deny it. This I leave with you in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
