Weekly Update (May 21st)

Dear Fullmer Family,

Thank you for telling me all about your weeks! It's always great to hear from you. This week has been more or less a week of trials but we're seeing miracles coming. For this new transfer we are "white washing" our area or in other words restarting. All of the investigators that we had weren't progressing so we're just going to re start and be "new" missionaries in the area, even though we've both been here for a while. As we've been doing that we've found some pretty cool people and great new places to Harvest. We know that this will be a great transfer.

With having a new transfer we have a new "Zone Challenge." Last transfer it was where we focused on an attribute from D&C 4 everyday and worked to become perfected in our weaknesses. This transfer the title is, "Doubt not, fear not." So what this includes is every morning we think of a fear and a doubt we have for that day and work with our companions to overcome those fears and doubts. It's only been in effect for a few days but we've heard really cool stories already and we're excited for what will come the rest of the transfer. Every Friday as a zone we will be having something called "Fear not Friday" when we have a conference call and share a story of someone who showed forth courage instead of fear. We shared the story of Ammon this past week but this week we want to use something not from the scriptures so if you have any stories that you can think of please mail them to me! I'd really appreciate it!

At transfer meeting this past week I left my back pack there and apparently no one can find it... It's kind of strange because it was in the chapel in Plantation but no one can seem to find it. I'm sure it'll turn up soon, well I hope so because my scriptures and camera are in it. Lot's of memories there.

Yesterday at church it seemed like people were just coming up to us asking us to do things. In Sunday school we sang a song, "in our day" from the Book of Mormon sound track and in Elders Quorum we taught part of the lesson. It's great when the members trust you and ask you to do things for them. Hopefully soon they'll start giving us their friends to teach. One member in particular, who's home we blessed a couple weeks ago, told us about one of his neighbors he want us to see. Yesterday before church they talked to her and she's really interested in having her home blessed. The member was so excited! He was saying how he feels she and her family could be baptized soon that's how receptive they are. It's really cool seeing members have the spirit of missionary work.

That was really cool to see the solar eclipse. I didn't even know it was happening. It was probably raining here so no one could even see it. Haha. Well that's about all I've got to say for this week. Please keep us in your prayers! I love you lots and hope you all have a great week!
-Elder David B. Fullmer
