Hello po sa inyo,
We have had a pretty busy week, because we had interviews on Friday and then District Conference on Saturday and Sunday. District Conference was great with Elder Sinamban of the area seventy speaking to the members. He gave a great talk about supporting and protecting your family by serving the Lord and keeping the commandments. It was exactly what the people here needed to hear. I really enjoyed conference, but because we live so far away from the district center, we just stayed there for three days and worked with the Zone Leaders which means we didn't get to work in our area. Although we were only in our area a few days this week, we still had some great things happen.
My companion and I have set some really good goals and schedules to help us be more effective and not lose any time when we could be working. With our efforts, we have gained a lot of trust from the branch members. I've never heard of our branch president giving referrals to the elders or going out to work with them. But this week, he worked with us and gave us an awesome referral to a family who we already have high hopes for.
Thank you for all your prayers, I know they have been a big help.
Love, Elder Smith
