Prayer Makes All The Difference In Missionary Work

K I'm real sorry, but I don't have a ton of time to email today because we have appointments and stuff, but anyways this week has been so legit. So there are all these people here that we call Okie talkers and they will just talk for hours and you don't have to say anything, but anyways, we saw this guy on the street so we went and talked to him and he pretty much explained the Baptist religion to us. Me and my comp probably talked for like 1 of the 45 minutes we were there, but it was pretty interesting. If I ever get bored with the fulness of the everlasting gospel, eternal salvation, and all the other incredible blessings that come with it, at least there are other options. Jk, but that's just classic Oklahoma for ya.
So this week we have been visiting our star investigator, Jake, quite a bit, and it has been incredible. After meeting with him for a couple weeks I think he has already finished 1 Nephi and probably 10 to 15 other chapters. He is cruising and he loves it. He tells us how the Book of Mormon really hits him in the chest, so this week we've been trying to get him to recognize that he is feeling the spirit. I think that he's starting to understand, but we'll see tonight. We left him with Moroni 7 as one of the chapters, so I'm pumped to see what he thought about that.
We've also been trying this new thing with members where every time we visit someone we try to get a name of someone that they're working with that we can pray for. It has been working really well because the members are starting to meet their neighbors and share stuff. Also we have a name that we can follow up with. Oh and you can't forget the amazing difference that prayer makes in missionary work. It seems like as we pray and get the members to meet their neighbors and stuff they become really excited about the work which is awesome for us. Well I don't have a ton of time to email today, so this one is going to be kind of short, but I love you all so much. Hoddy family forever!
