This week has been full of UPS and downs with missionary work. We had a investigating family move, and had an investigator dropped us because she got a hold of false doctrine. On the other hand we got a Less Active girl with a non member husband and a referral for a lady and her daughter today. Yesterday, after church we had a lesson with Fritz. We reinvited him to be baptized and explained how he would come to know what we have taught him is true. The work is going rough but hopefully with our challenge to the branch the work will pick up.
While in companionship study we were thinking how we can increase from a teaching pond to a teaching pool. The scripture in Mosiah 28:3 came to mind.
It reads:Now they were desirous that salvation should be declared to every creature, for they could not bear that any human soul should perish; yea, even the very thoughts that any soul should endure endless torment did cause them to quake and tremble.
After reading this the thought came to mind that we need to have the branch invite those who they come in contact with to come to church. it is a very simple invitation that all members can do. We know that this is what the Lord wants to have happen at this time in the branch.
