hey family! ‏ 09/19/11 Week 32

Hey family!

So this week was quite an interesting one for us.  We unfortunately didn´t have quite the success that we were hoping for, but I´ve really learned a lot of diligence, patience, and hope during times that we aren´t "harvesting" in the vineyard, but sure doing a lot of "planting" haha.  Door to door contacting definitely became our favorite thing to do this week.  We lead the mission this week in "contacts" by 80, us having 240 with a goal of 140 haha.  So, we don´t have any super solid investigators right now that are close to being baptized, but we are determined to find those that the Lord has prepared to accept the Gospel. 
  My testimony of the Savior is continuing to grow and I´m absolutely loving the work.  I have many weaknesses still, but the Lord has helped me perform his work.  It´s the last week before the transfers end, so we are going to work super hard before I (most likely) get transferred to another area!  Anyway, I love you all and thank you so much for your support and prayers.  The Church is true.

I´ll leave you with a little glue-in that I found in my scriptures this week.  a quote from C.S. Lewis:
       "Imagine yourself as a living house.  God comes in to rebuild that house.  At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing.  He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on:  you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised.  But presently, He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make sense.  What on earth is He up to?  The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards.  You thought you were going to be made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace."

oh, here´s a solid scripture.  2 Nefi 31:20

Con amor,

Elder Winger
