I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me;
yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy. Alma 29:9

The Work is Progressing

March 21, 2016

Dear Family,

We finally met with our investigator Trevor, who could only meet once every other week, tough, I know. But we taught him the Restoration and he loves talking about it and asking questions so we had a great conversation going. We asked him what it would mean if this was true and he said that he would probably just keep living his life the way he is now. It was probably one of the boldest lessons I have been in and we straight up told him that this is the most important thing that he will hear in his life and that it will improve the way he is living. He was completely fine with what we had to say but we aren't sure where it will go from here, him not wanting to commit and all, but hopefully he will realize it for himself.

On Tuesday we spent the whole day in Sackville working with the Elders there. Elder Quinton and I have both served there so we knew the area pretty well still. We split off for the day and worked with each others companions. It was like deja vu being back there, old apartment, same work, it was almost like I never left. It was really weird. Got to visit a few of the members and the best thing of the day was when we took Owen, the investigator that was found by Elder Quinton right before I got there and then taught him, and who is now baptized, to a lesson with us. It was so cool that I got to go back and see someone progress so much and make those covenants with God, and now he is an awesome member missionary. Ah, such a good day.

Well, the record for hardest door slam on my mission was broken the other day, it was awesome!

On Sunday we were leaving Sacrament meeting when in the back corner of the room was Jennifer and James, two investigators from Montague that Elder Quinton also found and that I was teaching as well. They are so awesome and surprised us with a visit. They just got engaged, which is a miracle in itself because we thought it might never happen, and they both invited us to the wedding, which is in September of 2017, haha, pretty far away I would say. But James said that they are planning on being baptized after they are married! They came to Gospel Principles class with us and brother Whiting thought they were members because they were participating in the discussion and what was funny was that when he asked if they were members James instinctively said yes and than was like, well not yet. So cool that it was his reaction though, it made Elder Quinton and I both excited.

The blessings are real, you can see them everyday.
Love You!
Love, Elder Ray

Brother Whiting, our ward mission leader,
is one of the coolest people I have ever met.

Surprise visit from Jennifer and James!
