The work is going very well here as we are having a baptism this Saturday of a young lady named Lauren Fairweather. She is the one that used to drink lots of tea and is the friend of a recent convert. We have a few other people that we are working with as well and hopefully we will get a couple of them committed to baptism for this month but we will see how they progress. We surely never will push but we invite everyone like crazy. As you do missionary work is it good to share but invite! Inviting is the MOST important part. You would never go through medical school and residency and then never work a single day in your life as a doctor. The same applies in that sharing info without the invite to act on that knowledge is useless.
We have zone conferences this week and leadership training and we will be doing 3 separate trainings this week so we got a lot on our plate but it is good. Elder Goettman is just excelling and has one of the BEST trainers in the whole mission. He will be and is a leader in the mission. I have a blast being with him from time to time. I also heard that Eric Nelson and Sarah LaFond are engaged! That is awesome and crazy. Tell them to send me out an announcement, I mean if they want obviously. Tell Eric I say congratulations and I am glad he won't be a menace to society haha.
Well I love you and am glad to hear that you are all doing so well and taking trips and stuff. I love to hear about all of it so thanks for updating me. I miss you all a ton and love to hear from you. I love my mission so much too!!!!!!! Oh it is the best! I love you all and hope all is well. Also I just have one request when I get home cause it will be summer and that is that we all go as a family to do baptisms in the Temple. Direct and extended family. I would love that more than anything, so please set that up cause that is my one wish to you all. I love you so much and feel the swelling in my heart when I think of you all and being with you forever. You are the best family I could ask for. LOVE YOU! Go out and be a missionary every day.
-Love Elder Neeley
