A good week this week. We had our temple trip today (thus the email on Wednesday). I love the temple. It's such a fantastic place. We are really blessed as a mission to have the Colombia River Temple in our boundaries. And it's only 20 minutes away from most of the mission too. That's nice. :)
We had a fantastic day yesterday. We had a member out with us from. We a super brief lesson to a new investigator, Steven, invited him to church and set up another lesson for today. We were also able to teach a lesson to a part-member family, the Smiths, who agreed to take the lessons and learn more about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The member we brought shared his testimony and his re-conversion story. That above anything else we did brought the Spirit to the lesson. It is amazing what the testimony of someone who is simply living the gospel in their daily life can do. And coming from one of their peers, it really impacts an investigator, sometimes in a way that the full-time missionaries can't duplicate.
We've been sharing the #Hallelujah video with anyone and everyone that we can. If you haven't seen it yet, please watch it and share it! You can find it at FollowHim.Mormon.org. It is a great way to share your testimony of Jesus Christ. As you share it, please remember to accompany the video with your testimony of Christ and a simple invitation to act. It will allow those you share it with to feel the Spirit and be drawn closer to Christ.
Love, Elder Plehn
