Stick to your task til it sticks to you!

February 22, 2016


It's been a good week. Nothing as crazy as last week, but we had some
solid appointments. We also had a regional broadcast from SLC for our
church which was pretty good. Elder Renlund spoke about how to explain
things to nonmembers or people who question church policy. He said
that every time a question arises, we have to answer it by first
explaining revelation or the Plan of Salvation so that it can be
understood in context.

Most of our investigators have been kind of flakey this week, but at
least we finally got the ward mission plan to every family. Pretty
exciting ha.

We also went to a great baptism yesterday. It wasn't our investigator,
but he was Tongan so we decided to go so we could meet his nonmember
friends. It ended up being one of the best baptisms I've been to so
far on my mission. He had been taught by many, many missionaries while
he was investigating and most of them were able to get a ride back to
the baptism. A lot of them started crying when he got baptized and
that got me thinking about charity and developing love for the
people we teach. It's important to baptize, and we're told to do that
over and over again. But if we are unchanged by the experience we've
completed only half of our purpose.

Sorry for the short email, I was on a hike took most of our P-day.
Have a great week!

~Elder Paul Thomas

        “Stick to your task ’til it sticks to you;
         Beginners are many, but enders are few.
         Honor, power, place and praise
         Will always come to the one who stays.
       “Stick to your task ’til it sticks to you;
         Bend at it, sweat at it, smile at it, too;
         For out of the bend and the sweat and the smile
         Will come life’s victories after a while.”      --Author Unknown

P.s. Sorry apparently the email server in our mission didn't really work
last week so if you were expecting an email and didn't get one just
let me know it didn't go through
