OYM-Seeing the Fruits of our Labors

We're leading our zone with lessons taught this week!!! Sometimes you don't see the fruit of your labors until it is handed to you! This week we have implemented OYM (Open Your Mouth). The goal is to get 20 each day. Of course some days are better than others but just this week we have FOUR new investigators! Also just this week our whole mission had a tracting hour from 1-2. It was cool to know the whole mission was out knocking doors finding ANYONE to talk to. Also we're having a little competition between the zones... in our efforts to get missionaries up and exercising in the mornings we (as a MLC) have challenged each missionary to run 20 miles a transfer. In just one week Chandler and Tempe YSA have been neck in neck with about 100 miles each so we'll see who takes it at the end of this transfer! This week we had a interesting street contact... he was Muslim and spoke Bengali and very little English but in our efforts to teach ANYONE we attempted using google translate. Harder said than done! Needless to say there won't be another lesson with him. We were also able to sit in on a Lutheran study group. It was amazing! Here's why- there were only 4 of them and Pastor James was teaching how Christ is in us and us in Christ and one of them could not understand that. It was very cool teaching opportunity to teach that we were created in God's image and so forth. They were very kind and invited us back! On Saturday we took one of our investigators to a baptism that some of our Elders had. The spirit was very strong and her desire to be baptized increased 10 fold but still wants to wait until they have their 6 kids back. God is in the detail of our lives. He loves us more than we'll every know. I love teaching others about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ! I love you all! Have a great week!

Love, Sister Eaton
