Week 68: Ask of God

New French T-Shirt

Monday, March 6, 2017

Fantastic week! On the Sunday before last Preparation Day, we needed to find one more new investigator. So we had decided to call one of our potential investigators who just needed an appointment to become a new investigator. And, he was the first call! :) We set up the appointment for just after Preparation Day last week (at 6). His brother was there, too, so we taught him too! So, that was cool!

Then, we taught Nick and Natalie on Saturday with some members. It was a great lesson of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Faith, Repentance, Baptism, Receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the End). They came to church, too! They loved it and liked the testimonies from the people of the congregation.

Our Ward Mission Leader went on vacation to Paris with a quick stop in Iceland, but he is back now. He bought us each a shirt! It is pretty cool. I'll have to take a pic of it.

He, also, used small bowls to scoop up snow in Iceland because the snow fell so much in one night. Lol.

We had a fun experience with a drunk guy who kept grabbing Elder Mateski's arm telling him to follow the money. Haha! We had been talking about stocks, so that is where that came from. We taught a bit about the Plan of Salvation mainly for his brother who is sober. Lol. It was a good lesson. Haha Elder Mateski is 19 and the drunk guy asked him how many wife's he had been through... He's like, "0, I'm only 19.. and then the goal is 1..." lol!

I had a lot of fun driving the Subaru Legacy 2017 car this week because I understood some of it's features a little better haha! It has adaptive cruise control where it can even stop for you depending on the car in front and then you can just resume and it will follow the car which has moved in front. I wouldn't even need to press on the gas. Haha, fun!  It has some other safety features that are pretty cool, too. Like beeping at me if a car is moving behind me when I'm backing and telling me if a car has moved and braking if needed. Etc. :)  It's also nice because it is only 2 months old.. :D 

Also! The Joseph Smith First Vision video that I watched at the History Museum is now out for regular screens instead of that 240 degree angle. It is pretty cool. Watch it at history.lds.org. It is called Ask of God: Joseph Smith's First Vision and it is 6 minutes long.

I know that Joseph Smith truly saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know they love us very much and that the church has been restored through Joseph Smith. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

Love,
Elder Kloosterboer
