Here is a question from Bogue and my response.
What do you think the hardest thing is to do for your mission?
Find the soul-satisfying balance between perfect obedience and being able to goof off while not being so hard on myself. You know?
This past week we had 2 confirmations, 3 investigators with a baptismal date, 5 investigators at sacrament meeting, 9 member present lessons, 10 other lessons, 4 progressing investigators, 5 referrals, 5 new investigators, 1 less-active visit, and 45 contacts. These are some of the "key indicators" that we focus on each week.
If you read Preach My Gospel it talks a lot about having a member at lessons with investigators. I testify that it is so necessary for an investigator to build a relationship with a member. The missionaries leave after they are finished in the area, but the investigator stays. After the missionary leaves who is the friend to the investigator? Hopefully a member who is also staying. GO TO LESSONS WITH THE MISSIONARIES! Be that member who loves the missionaries and who greets all of the investigators. Ask the missionaries who their investigators are that are at church. Make friends with them!
