Elder Peach is from
Recently I went on an exchange with zone leader Elder Wells and we had some interesting things happen. We talked to a guy for half an hour on his doorstep who's studying with Jehovah's Witnesses. We had an hour long chat with this family (a knock in) who were really intense Christians. They had all sorts of questions about the trinity, the Book of Mormon, and all sorts of doctrine. Although we answered them to the best of our ability, afterwards I felt defeated. I'm not much for debate and stuff like that. It did give me a few questions which I'll ask Dad about. In PMG it says that as missionaries we are not obligated to answer every objection everyone has. We are to simply testify of truth and leave commitments. That's really what we're here to do.
It just saddens me when people do not think we're Christians because we do not hold a 4th century view of the Godhead. We hold an eternal view.
To be honest, the work is really slow here in Yeovil. We just continue to try to find people. The Lord will bless us in His own due time. You just got to plug along.
I've been listening to a lot of BYU devotionals and General Conference talks that Elder Day gave me before he left. Some notable ones I like are
Zone Conference the other day was really interesting. Savannah Stevenson came to talk with us. (Look her up) She played Mary in the recent church videos that they played at the Christmas Devotional. She's from
