|Elder Jensen and Elder Farley "October Twinin' Ties"|
Conference... it was the Bees-Knees. That is all that needs to be said. Ha ha but seriously all the missionary work talks were legit! All I want to do is go around saying "Exclamation Point!" after everything when I heard S. Gifford Nielsen's talk. BAM! And then Elder Bednar's talk about Tithing was super awesome too. He laid down the law like a champ. Needless to say... conference was great. Anyone who hasn't watched General Conference needs to go watch it on LDS.org!! Now! Ha ha.
Anyway, the work here is going great. We had four investigators watch Conference and we picked up another investigator last night. She is a non-member who is married to a less-active member and they have a 7 year old son. They are awesome! They are very nice to us and are welcome to us sharing the Gospel with their family. Last night we watched "Finding Faith in Christ", which is a wonderful shorter film that depicts Christ's life wonderfully, and they seemed to really enjoy it. Afterward we bore our testimony of Christ and how reading the scriptures and praying would help their family come closer to Him. When I testified of the scriptures, I was only going to talk about the Bible since I supposed she had no clue about the Book of Mormon yet, but the Spirit told me to testify of the Bible and Book of Mormon. So I did! We then got to explain to her about the Book of Mormon and what it is and where it came from. Then we set up a time to come back and share the Restoration lesson with them! I am so STOKED for them! I really hope they all come to accept this great message and decide to come into the Fold :) I just love doing missionary work. If anyone wanted to know.... The Missionary life is the best. Hands down.
I am super excited to hear about the win over St. Pius X!! Ha ha, I just can't get away from football. I love hearing how Brian and the team are doing. Keep it up Scorps!
Okay everybody.... So Facebook is officially being used in the Washington DC North Mission! Crazy right! But that doesn't mean I can just chat it up with everybody... unless its about the GOSPEL :) Then we can chat all the time! If anyone has any questions or interests in our religion and would like to know more from their friend Elder Farley, then hit me up on the FB!
The work is hastening. And this IS the Lord's work. I know this gospel is true and that the Book of Mormon is true. I am so very thankful for a Heavenly Father who has provided a Plan of Salvation for us so that through Christ and His Atonement, we can live with Him again. And not only that but we can live with our families forever!! And that is just the greatest gift I could ever imagine!
I love you all and am so thankful for your prayers and support! You are so great! :) Keep working hard and sharing the gospel with the world!
