Family History

(Excerpts from April 7th 2014 Email)

I had a great experience watching General Conference. I really felt the spirit with Elder Aidukaitis talk. We have been blessed TREMENDOUSLY !!!  ALL of our investigators come to watch General Conference at the chapel. I became emotional when I saw our investigators feel the spirit during the  talks.  I had to excuse myself for a bit so that they wouldn't see my emotion. I have a few more weeks left here, I believe in Rapids. It's O.K. I don't know what to expect, but it will be O.K. I trust were the Lord puts me to serve next. I have been serving and meeting a lot of people with Indian ancestry here. I feel like I'm serving the Lamanites, descendants from father Lehi. It's so neat to see their eyes open as they feel the spirit of Elijah when we share and when they read about their own ancestry. 

This week has been going very well. We have been blessed, but my companion and I don't go for numbers, we just simply go for what the Lord will give us. We have been getting a lot of new investigators through using family history as a tool and it works EXTREMELY well. We have been using our own family history to show people how fun it can be to learn about your own family  history. Some are very curious as to what my history is because I have the last name of McMoore but have dark features.
Our investigators are doing great. Not one is slipping. We have been fasting and praying for them and their progression. I am really happy here. :) I have recently let go of everything. The talks from General Conference have made me realize that I have much more important things to do than worry about other things after my mission or outside of my mission.  This has brought a lot of ease for me.
Love you all,
Elder M.
