It definitely seems like everyone is in the missionary spirit over
there. I was super excited to hear about Alex receiving his mission
call. I`m sure he will do great. I love being a missionary and am
excited for so many of my friends to have this experience as well.
This last week has been great. As far as transfer calls went nothing
changed. So Elder Nakabe and I can keep working hard. There was a big
festival that was going on last week. We were worried that it was
going to be hard to find people to meet while housing but it actually
turned out very well. I feel like the spirit led us to the people we
needed to meet. We found some great new investigators that also seem
The work with less active members has also been going great. So many
of them really do want to come back to church. We are going to do our
best at helping them with the three things every member needs which
are a friend, responsibility, and being nurtured by the word of God.
However since we are not in the position to give members a calling
I figured that we can ask them to help in our missionary efforts by
fellowshipping investigators and so on.
This really is an amazing work and I know that the work of spreading
the gospel is moving forward rapidly. I`m so grateful to be a missionary.
Thank you for your prayers and support. I love you all so very much.
Love, Elder Joseph Gandy
