Elder Mackey's October 3, 2011 E-Mail

Conference was awesome!! I had a lot of prayers answered for sure. Tons of talks for investigators came to mind. Too bad none of them came. Hopefully they watched it on the Internet. So this past week was so awesome!! We had some amazing miracles!!! One investigator we tracted into a week before accepted to be baptized. We will see how serious he was. He kept saying sure and ok. He wants to quit smoking. Then we were in the area and thought we should stop by this one kid. We were going to do it next week but the idea came to our mind. We stopped by and his parents were out front. Their son (the kid) moved for good to Texas to do pipe lining. We taught the parents the restoration and invited them to be baptized! They accepted. The mom said that she was saying a prayer looking for guidance and she knows that we were an answer to her prayers which she asked like a few hours before. Then after the last session of conference we were going over to our dinner appointment and the neighbor was outside. We talked to her. She was very friendly and open. We asked if we could teach her at the members home and she said yes. We did and it was a spiritual lesson!! We invited her to be baptized and she accepted!!! So 4 accepted baptismal invitations during this week!! That was a pretty uplifter.
I came into the mission with the determination that I was going to be 100% obedient and I am not even close to that. Mandy, I feel like I am getting into the "funk" again. :( Its hard to get out of this funk. Seriously I thought I would be a better missionary than who I am right now.  Well I love you oh so very much. I love the family and I am so grateful to be apart of this family. Thank you for your prayers. and that picture is so funny and thank you for sharing that with me!
