February Week 3

Hey everyone!!! All is well here in Safford. There isn't much that has been going on, but we did have a baptism on Saturday for a nine year old girl. She is super sweet. We really didn't do much more than just teach her the lessons. It was fun to just get the chance to teach her the gospel. The last couple of weeks have been really slow as far as missionary work goes. We picked up a new investigator on Saturday as well. We had gone to dinner and were riding our bikes home when a man stopped us and asked if we were the missionaries. Of course we said yes. We took a moment and found out where he lives and his name and things like that. It was really cool to just be out and about and find someone. I was thinking about some of the crazy things that have happened to find people to teach. Things like doing crossfit, yoga, shopping, emailing, and everything else that goes on in your average day. Its interesting to see the people who want to learn the gospel versus those who just hear it and move on their way. There is something about the sparkle in their eyes that makes it all worth it. My companion and I were talking about how long its been since we went really tracting and my companion pointed out that he has never been tracting. I thought about it and its been 8 months or better since I went tracting. That tells me that its still possible to find and teach people the gospel even without knocking doors. Remember to share the gospel with someone you know and love. Be courageous. That is how we get over the fear of doing something. There is always someone who you can talk to. Have an excellent week and don't forget who loves you!!! Elder Klynton Frederick
