So Elder Aubrey and i are trying this new tracting method that has been proven to work 100% of the time all of the time. so what we do is each night as we plan for the day we plan the times we are gong to tract but we dont choose the exact place and when we get done planning the rest fo our day we neel down and say personal prayers asking for inspiration forgivness and help in this work. then after those we say another comp prayer together asking for simailar things when that is done one of us will go up to a map of our area and he will read off 15 street names that stick out to him and the other one will write them all down and then we each get a seperate peice of paper and on those ones we will write down five street names from the list of 15 that we feel good about and then we will compare our two lists of 5 streets and there are always a couple that are the same and so those are the streets we go and tract. its awesome because the lord is preparing people each day and he helps guide us to them as we seek to find them and follow his promptings. so i know he leads us to them as we obey and listen.
so we have put this to the test this last week and each day we go and tract the streets that we have found and when we do we meet people that are so prepared. its honestly insane because we will talk to these people and really i come to know that they are the ones that we were sent there to find. its a great confirmation. we have found some of the best people ever this week. people that have been praying for a change and for help from god and then the next day we knock on their door. things happen that are only labelled as miracles from god. its real. i love it.
it has been a very great week. i have been blessed. we were out this week and we had like 10 minutes before we had to get to dinner so we decided to sstop and tract where we had planned too and we both were feeling towards the end of the road so we went to the end of the road and knocked one door and no one answered then we knocked the next one and thsi nice older guy answered the door and at first he wasnt to interested but then as we talked with him his wife pulled up and she was asking us questins and turns out that she used to know some members of the church and she has always wanted to learn more and she is so interetsted. we just happened to knock on the door on the only good time we were there at the perfect time and it was a great mitracle that we were able to meet them. i count myself lucky to be able to witness it. really though i have met a lot of people this week who have known members of the chhurch and it really hit me even more how much of an example that we are even when we may think that no one is looking everyone is looking at watching so just remember to be the person that god wwants us to be and who know s your example may change someones life for the good or bad that s your choice.
so there was this cool memorial baseball park in our area and they ahve all these different planes and tanks and guns from the different wars throughout history it was way cool. many many memorials for those who have fought for us.
i love you all.
Love Elder Trevor Ross
