Our Need for the Book of Mormon

Letter #88
May 4, 2015
Area: Baytown
Companion: Knudsen

Hey guys, this week was a little rough, we had a really hard time getting in with any of our investigators and it is starting to seem like Elder Knudsen is ready to leave Baytown, he has kinda given up on this transfer. Going back to the week, we got in with three of the investigators after multiple tries, but the rest just were really busy. Sadly Luz Silva and her daughters kind of dropped us, it seems like Luz still wants to have us come over, but her daughters don't really want to change, apparently that's the situation with them, but I have a hard time believing that to be true. The daughters seemed more interested than Luz and Luz seemed really interested herself.

We were able to teach a couple of our investigators more about the Book of Mormon and how it is important and they seem to be more interested in learning. One of them, Nery, was very hesitant with the Book of Mormon because she believes the Bible so much that "there couldn't ever be another book more correct than the Bible". We had to explain a little bit more about the Restoration of the church, but we were able to help her see the need of the Book of Mormon and she realized that she couldn't say the book isn't true if she hasn't ever read it. We were able to express how much the Book of Mormon has helped us in our lives and how it can help her in hers.

Oh yeah, and a little bit of news is that now transfers are going to be Mondays at 4pm, so the departing missionaries will be flying home on the Tuesday. I thought I should tell you now because it means I will be getting home on August 4th instead of August 5th in the case that any of you are wanting to be there for my homecoming (which I hope is all of you ;)).

Yesterday the English Elders in our area had 4 baptisms, which is kinda funny because basically 3 of them were just handed to them and they just needed to teach them a little, and get them interviewed. Which I actually had the opportunity to interview all 4 of them. I was so blessed with the opportunity to interview a woman named Vansha Gray, who actually found us about 2.5-3 weeks ago. Attached are pictures of us four Elders with her.

I love you guys,
Elder Stanley Scott Dye
