LETTER 56: The one where Tessa finds golden plates


Another great week! 

We had MLC on Wednesday, it was all about becoming consecrated missionaries. Really inspiring (:

We found a few new investigators this week, all through our own finding efforts which is more rare in this area. Most of our investigators are found through referrals. This week, we met Joseph on the street and have started meeting with him. He is from Kenya and is soo funny and sincere. Alex and Kat are also new--Alex is the cousin of someone we know, and Kat is the sister of a recent convert. It's just the best meeting new people. I absolutely love it.

Not a whole lot else to report. Siddhi is doing so great and is super excited for her baptism! As are we (: It's going to be pushed back a couple of weeks, but will happen soon. We have just been working hard and I'm learning tons! 

Don't have a whole lot of time to share some of my learnings this week, but in a nutshell I'm discovering how important it is to give God our hearts. In the end, why we do what we do is more important than what we do. We need to do things with the right motives. Love. Eliminate our reluctance to reach out to others. Christ was not only our perfect example of what we should do, but why we should do what we do. As we fully dedicate our lives to God--giving Him our hearts, and our desires, whether good or bad--He will give us a better life in return. The only way to win is to lose. Lose our lives for God. When we do so, we will win and will live a better life. Sorry if this is all jumbled (: 

Love you all, have a good week!

I love California.
