Hello my wonderful family,
This week has been hard. Yet, it has been a week of great learning and growth spiritually and intellectually. I have been given a new concept of quality and quantity. I have learned that quantity doesn't necessarily lead to greater quality, sometimes it even leads to lesser quality, but quality leads to greater quantity. If a University provides great quality in their teaching, then students desire to attend the University and it grows in it's teaching pool. If a business provides quality products, then their customers will increase. When quality is neglected, then the quantity decreases. If a salesperson sells products of no quality, then the people buying will not be satisfied and they will not return. I am striving to apply this to my work as a missionary. I want to be a missionary that provides quality work. This will then lead to a greater quantity of people interested in the work that we do as missionaries. This quality comes from the guidance of the Spirit, taking the time to study for individuals, and being purpose driven in all that we do as missionaries. Isn't it interesting though how quantity can also be a negative to quality. Though quality leads to quantity, that quantity, if not taken care of, can lead to a decrease in quality.
Jennifer wasn't able to make it to church this Sunday. :( But we will be meeting with her and helping her to progress even more. I ask that you pray for her to really know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, that the Priesthood was restored to the earth through him, that the Book of Mormon is a sacred book of scripture, and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true church on this earth today. I know that these things are true. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
