Stake Conference

Sorry about last week,  our time was cut short and time was not on my side.
    Many great things are happening and the work continues to push forward.  What a blessing it is to serve the Lord, because the trials, afflictions, challenges that come in this service, mold our character, magnify our potential, and unleashes the dormant spirit.  Missionary work is simply that... Work.  But there's an eternal light that this work brings to the world.  As an individual missionary who's just like any other missionary, my whole purpose is to help the Lord to convert others to His gospel, as well as myself.  This last week we had a mission leaders council with the mission president in discussing what needs to be done to achieve our goals and to organize ourselves to be the best missionary force that we can be.  As questions rolled on about specific things that we need to do with our investigators, President Chatfield told us that there is no point in asking him because we won't learn anything.  He told us that the Lord is ready and available to bless us with answers and guide us in what we should do.  That is something that has stuck with me, is that whenever we are stuck or confused, the Lord is just waiting for us to ask what we should do.
        Just recently we had a stake conference and it was just super great because I was able to see all of my friends and some of my recent converts there.  The inspiring talks brought a strengthened spirit to the members of the stake.  We could feel and understand the importance of working together and unifying ourselves to hasten the work even more.  
       We have a guy that's getting baptized on the 5th of July!  His name is Philip and he is just a powerful guy, he even came to stake conference with his sister.  When we taught him about the Book of Mormon, he said he felt something stirring inside of him that told him that the book was good.  On another visit he told us that he knows the book of mormon is true because he even felt the power as he read.  What a wonderful blessing from God to have phillip be truly receptive to the Holy Ghost.
       We had a funny experience where we contacted a guy and we were invited to teach him in his home.  We taught him about the Restoration of the gospel, and at the end of the lesson, he said,"my niece does something like you do, but she went to Ghana with a group called the Mormons."  Well, we decided to let him think about the message first before we broke the news to him.  
     Anyway, I love the work and I love the Lord.  The experiences that I have will develop me into a true and faithful follower of Jesus Christ.  I know this is the true gospel and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints is the Lord's kingdom once again established on the Earth.
Over and Out,
Elder Wilson
