This week we have gotten lots of Referrals and I mean lots. It is super awesome to have the members do the finding for us, cause we can knock doors all day and often we do. But of the referrals that we got this week I am super excited for how they turn out. Our Ward Mission Leader has been asking us to ask for referrals more and more so we have been and are seeing blessing from it.
This week I was reading in 2 Nephi 2 and I was struck by verse 16: 16 Wherefore, the Lord God gave unto man that he should act for himself. Wherefore, man could not act for himself save it should be that he was enticed by the one or the other.
I really like this scripture cause it talks about lots of different things, One it talks about how we have the ability to choose. But not to choose anything we are to choose the options that are in front of us. That is super cool because WE need to be the people to entice the people to do the right thing so that they can choose. It is my job to put that other option in front of people so they can choose! And it is each and everyone one of our responsibilities to do that and we can't fail as long as we invite!

I think that when we receive referrals that is a sign that members and the Lord trust us.
THE VISION OF THE SOUTH
"Make no small plans: This is the vision I have for the South. I believe that one day the South will baptize more people into the church than all other English speaking missions in the world together....We will see the time when we will baptize hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands...In your day you will see a million members of the church in the South. There will be temples plural in the Southern States. What a great call you have to serve with these marvelous people." President Spencer W. Kimball
