Letter for November 11, 2013

Hey all!
Long time no chat eh? It's been good since Thursday! We have been working so hard. We try to use up all the time we can to teach the gospel as the sound of a trump! We are doing our best. Honestly on Friday and Saturday we had hard days. We literally didn't get into any house we knocked on. We had a bunch of appointments and none of them were home when we would knock on the door. It was frustrating and hard. It was a great learning experience. We just need to do our best and trust that the Lord will take care of the rest because He really will. We are promised that in Proverbs 3:5-6. So we continued to press forward. We saw Sister Ramoz on Friday to check up on her commitment. She said that her husband still won't answer her about anything. She asked if we could postpone her baptism to a few more weeks down the road. That was pretty hard to hear as well. We know though that she will get baptized. That is the most important thing. If I’m in the area when it happens, great. If not, that’s okay too. As long as she gets baptized that is the most important thing. She came to church for the ninth time on Sunday. Her little granddaughter, Tamara, had a memorized portion of the primary program. She did so well! Normally she is really shy. She did really well. Her grandma was really proud of her too. They are doing really well. I'm so proud of them. She still wants to do this. I know she'll do it. I hope soon! We were assigned to teach gospel principles yesterday (bishop asked us at sacrament meeting) about the gathering of Israel. It was a full class. We tied it into missionary work and how we all need to make those covenants with God in order to have a happy ever after. She said that got her excited even more to be baptized. I know she will do it someday! We are still working with the same people. We are hoping to get some more going on the road to the waters of baptism. I know that if we are obedient, and worthy. The Lord will guide us. I love this work. I love His church. I will forever be apart of this grand work. I love you all! Have a great week!

Elder Dallin M. Ollerton
