Noah's Ark and Missionary Work

Well our ward is doing really well, but our investigators....
So we have been spending a lot of time working with members, less actives, and recent converts. It's been leading to results! A lot of members and reactivations, for example. The only thing is that we aren't having much luck with our investigators.

This week we started working with a less active member. During the week she had two days in which she didn't smoke, dropped from smoking two boxes a day to two sticks, and went to church! 

Also this week we started asking for referrals in a new manner. We tell the story of Noah (how he saved people from the flood) and ask them:  "If you were Noah who would you want on the bark? Then we write down all the names, and show how they can be like Noah and invite their friends to get in the old boat of Zion and to be safe from the deadly sins of the world. We then work with the person to visit all of these people and get them to church, (but seeing how we are in phase two (contatcting people) we have yet to see a lot of results).

I love you all! 
Elder Lindsey
