General Conference

I loved watching General Conference! I want to absorb all of it like a sponge! I took notice on how so many talks were about families and parenting. At first, I thought, I don't need this! I want them to speak about missionary work and how I can help my investigators progress! Then I realized that I can substitute investigators every time they say children! It works! For example, when Elder Bednar was talking about how to bear testimony frequently and to invite children to bring questions to study together, that is very applicable with missionary work!
During our weekly planning session we made cinnamon rolls and afterward, delivered them to investigators that we thought needed a reminder to come to conference. We even wrote a note on a little elephant sticky that said, "Elephants don't forget" It was cute. But even after the deliciousness of the rolls and the cuteness of the note, no one that we stopped by came. But, the Assistants told us to call a girl they had passed to us, who we didn't even think of inviting, and she came for the last session!
We realized this week that we need to drop a lot of the people we have been working with, because they just do not have the desire. That very same day, we looked through our area book and found a potential investigator who lived close by. This is what it said about her, "She has a Book of Mormon and she read it and felt peace." So we went by her apartment and she came outside and was very nice. But she said that she did not have a Book of Mormon and never heard of it. She said that she met with missionaries before, but they only talked about the Bible. Huh? Anyway, we testified of the Book of Mormon and committed her to read it and meet with us again the next week and she agreed! Blessings do come from letting go of investigators!
