Mission XP - 28 March 2016

This week has been slow but we did receive a referral from the media about a lady who might be interested. We stopped by and she had loads of questions but she would ask one and go on to the next with out giving us time to answer so we scheduled a return appointment so we can teach her. We praying everything goes well.
I've been studying mostly in preach my gopel, finding people to teach and we've been trying to apply everything there.
Other than that nothing really. I'll try to have more news next time. 

Happy Easter!

Mission XP - 16 March 2016

It wasn't a super productive week but we were able to see miracles nontheless! We went on splits with two of the country crossing 8thward young men and one of thier fathers. We had originally planned to go out from 7-8 on thursday evening and while I was out with Adam we talked to a Young Women's President about a referal and we talked to two people on the street. But that's not the miracle, we met back at our house at 8 and Elder Schunk wasn't back yet so I called them twice and they didn't answer. So I thought they were in the lesson and Adam and I decided to go and try to share a message with Brian and Nikki. When we went to their apartment no one answered and of course we were disappointed because they are moving but as we got to the car we saw two people moving furniture. We offered to help them and at first they were hesitant and then they were like for real and then we started helping them move. After we finished helping them move we were in their apartment and they started asking us questions to get to know us and the way they face a questions made me realize they were members and so I asked if they were and if they were able to go to church recently. Their response was not since we moved here. So Adam and I shared her testimony at church and the importance of the sacrament and the atonement and through our discussion we asked if we could come back and share a message with them. They said yes and we also invited them to come to church and they said they would think about it. When we got home Elder Schunk in the whites (his split) we're waiting for us. When I asked if they had gotten into a home and shared a message they said no our car broke down so Brother White calls a mechanic in his neighborhood who was a nonmember to tow his car. As they road back to his house they shared your message with him and while they were out they were able to set up three appointments with less actives. The miracle and this is that because Brother Whites car broke down Adam and I were able to find the one that was ready to receive the message again and that wouldn't have happened if we had met back at eight. I know that God truly does know each one of us that he loves us and that he knows who is ready to come back to him and who can help them. I love how heavenly father can see so clearly who's ready, and the way he sees people's potential is helping me better see and focus on who people can become. Elder Schunk and I are doing great.

Love you,

Mission XP - 7 March 2016

So good! I'm only covering 12 Wards and 1 Branch (2 Stakes) again! We are going to the temple next week, so be prepared for emails on a different day. What did you do in the temple? What was your experience this time? This week was a roller coaster but there was lil a lot of great stuff. We had a Zone meeting with President Chambers and Sister Chambers and they talked about grit. I loved the grit training and some of the things that were said made me come up with new goals for myself. Elder Schunk and I are doing pretty good together. We are dong much better with (open your mouth and talking to people on the street) together. Elder Schunk is feeling more comfortable with asking questions and I've noticed that even with the simple O.Y.M.'s one of us will start and as we transition often times I don't know what to ask next or Elder Schunk doesn't, but the other always asks something which leads to a though or question or testimony that comes to my mid or his mind by the spirit. Without fail . . . mostly . . . until we don't know what to say at all and the guy has already walked away.:( but luckily that only happens most of the time . . . never mind.

The other night we were at member's house and they gave us a referral of a less active family. The husband was diagnosed with cancer and he just had an operation and they told us we should stop by.. The first miracle is that we stopped by within a minute of them giving us the referral and the people were home!!! The next miracle is that as we talked to the wife we asked if we could share a message and she said not at the moment because the husband was in bed resting but she said to stop by again. Then . . . wait for it . . . Elder Schunk asked if there was anything we could do to help out and she said not really but for whatever reason we pushed a little more than usual and she saw that we really wanted to help and so she said, "well actually their are some dried up tomato plants that my husband was going to get to but can't now." So we scheduled a time to come the next day. I liked that miracle. It's been re-emphasized to me in studies just how important doing how to being teaching correctly and in every lesson is. I always do it just not as good as I could so that's one of my goals tis week.

Love ya ma,
Elder Kremer
