First Exchange.

If you put Elder or anything relating to a missionary, places like to charge you more for shipping.

So, last Monday I had extended the Invitation of Baptism to one of our Investigators, she said she would think about it and we should find out this coming week what her answer is. We are able to do service for many different people almost every day here. It is interesting how in a small branch the Missionaries are more heavily involved in the functions of the branch activities. I had learned this past week how you can not convert some one with trying to talk or reason with them, the only way we can help others become converted is to share our testimony with everyone and let the Holy Ghost witness unto them the truth of what they are learning.

Last Thursday I went on my first exchanges with the District Leader. We were able to go out that night and visit with some of the potentials that were a few years old and somehow had been forgotten. It was interesting how as we were coming away from one of the houses we ran into a guy from Vivint who was looking to know where the Church was so that he could be at church while he was away on his business trip. The following morning we were out trackting and we came across someone who was looking to know the truth and we must have be put in there path to help them.

They have something weird up here, where they have a parade of motorcycles that go around and collect toys for some charity, and they go through out the whole town of WhiteCourt doing this.

I truly know that Heavenly Father has a plan for us and all we have to do is listen to the spirit to know of his intentions for us. Heavenly Father has given us all that we have and if we are able to stay worthy, then we will be able to continue with our success. We must be humble enough to obey the promptings we receive. Don't hesitate to speak the truth to those around you.

The mission is going great. I love you all, and I hope you have a good week.

Elder Warkentin
