Sorry I wasn't able to email yesterday! We had to do a couple things in Tulsa. We had to take a missionary from Springdale and bring him back to Tulsa and pick up a missionary from Tulsa and bring him back to Springdale and we also had to take a missionary in our zone to a doctors appointment in Tulsa. Fun fun. It's okay, we got free Jamba Juice along the way. This past week was a pretty good week. Nothing super notable happened this week. We did a lot of good work. This area is really nice. There is a really good teaching pool. That just means that there is a lot of people that are really interested in learning about the Gospel. There is a lot of people that are making good progress too!
One of our new investigators, XXXXX is doing really good. Brother XXXX from our ward referred his daughters boyfriend to us (XXXX), We went to the XXXX's house Monday night and Tuesday night and taught the Restoration and the Plan of Salvation. He is really open and really wants to study, ponder and pray. He is really sincere. I love people that are sincere. They are the ones who will receive real answers from God. I've learned one very important principle on my mission; If there is a God, then you can pray to Him. And if you can pray to Him, He will answer you.
Tomorrow we have two Zone Conferences. One from 9 - 4 which is a zone conference with President Shumway and all the missionaries from part of the Fort Smith Zone, the Springdale Zone, The Rogers Zone and the Joplin Zone. Then our Stake has a combined Stake/Zone Conference from 7-9. We have a lot going on tomorrow. Lots of conference. I can't wait! Anyways, things are going great! I love the work here in this area. I love being a missionary! I can't say it enough.
