Week 38ish‏ (May 4, 2015)

Hey all,

So even though the numbers of this week weren`t much better than the last week, they gave us more confidence in how we are working.  We didn`t have better numbers, but the way we got the was better and each one counted.  We worked with people who we hadn`t worked with in a long time, we talked with people we needed to even if it didn`t make a number, we know that what we are doing is helping people, and that`s why we`re here.  We had one lesson with a member last night and we read the scripture and she was very glad we shared it because it was a scripture that she needed to hear.  She wrote it down and we gave her another to read before the next time we visit.

So one good thing that happened this week was we have been helping a less active returned missionary come back to church recently and the problem is he`s just a bit lazy.  He sleeps in every week.  That isn`t why he went less active, but it`s why he`s stayed that way.  So we shared a scripture with him this week and we "told him off" a little bit.  But we did it with love.  We explained that he needed to go to church.  Not the other way around.  It`s not common for me to "tell people off" like that because I`m afraid to offend them, but this week I learned a little more in how to do it so that it helps people.  He needed to realize this and if we didn`t say it to him he wouldn`t have come to church this week.  But he came and it was really good for him.

I don`t have more to say really, but I love you guys and remember you`re in my prayers.
Con amor,
Elder Forsgren
