Not only are we fishers of men.... we are also fishers of fish

June 2, 2014

Hey all, only have about 5 minutes to rocket out a masterpiece but I will do my best.

This week was sweet. 

We went to the beach last p-day in Hull. I got to play ultimate and throw some delicious flicks that turned into points. It was so nice.

The Hamptons (family, not rich people place) committed to live the word of wisdom and Raymond said he would stop drinking. So legit considering when we got there we had NO idea we'd end up teaching about that...

I had my first "discussion" with an adventist lady about prophets. Well mostly elder Lopes did the talking since I couldn't explain it in portuguese. 'twas brillig...

We had a SPECTACULAR lesson about the temple and family history, put on by elder and sister miller (the senior couple missionaries in the branch) and Socorro and Carlos were both interviewed for the temple yesterday. They now have recommends and Socorro's already planning to do the temple work for her grandparents who raised her. It blows my mind how much they get it. 
William was interviewed and received the priesthood and is now a deacon and all he wants is to buy a white shirt and pass the sacrament. This kid.... 

Also our zone went on a frenzy to try to talk to/find as many prepared people as we could, and ended up breaking the record for any zone in the past two years by like 40. That sounds very numbers-focused, but honestly it was incredibly motivating and led to us finding a family and two sisters who all want to know more. Milagres.

My favorite scripture right now is Moroni 7:48: 
48. Wherefore, my beloved brethren, pray unto the Father with all the energy of heart, that ye may be filled with this love, which he hath bestowed upon all who are true followers of his Son, Jesus Christ; that ye may become the sons of God; that when he shall appear we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is; that we may have this hope; that we may be purified even as he is pure. Amen.
Elder Jackson
