Time is so fast! I thought that it was still October! Today is all saints day and so everyone was all over at the cemetery all day. We actually spent about 2.5 hours there talking to people about the plan of salvation. I made a big poster that we tried displaying but it didn’t really attract any adults and so we just left it standing there. We also had made some flyers with a plan of salvation on the back of “The Family Proclamation.” We just walked around the cemetery sharing it with people. It worked pretty well. Some people were really interested and I could tell that they felt happier after we shared with them. Other people, though, just told us they already had religion and that we should try to teach people that didn’t go to church. I felt really sad/upset/angry with them. Part of me just wanted to denounce them right there but then I also felt really sorry that they were so hard-hearted that they couldn’t even accept the truth when it was laid in front of them. It guess you could say that we were fairly successful. I certainly felt the spirit while we were doing it and it was good.
We also got to teach a second lesson, about the Plan of Salvation, to Bro Andales. He still has his problem with alcohol but he still is working on it and we still have hope for his success. We challenged him and his wife to have family prayer and family scripture study every day. It actually start to see faith in his being baptized.
