Zone Conference

This past week was good for us. For our mission leadership council with Elder Zivic, we focused on making sure that our investigators are prepared before they get baptized so they don't fall into inactivity. It breaks my heart to have a convert fall away from the church. One way we can avoid this is by teaching our people more about the Book of Mormon and helping them gain a testimony of it. If they receive a powerful experience of feeling the spirit while reading the book of Mormon they will have a long and joyful conversion and stay! I really enjoyed Zone Conference. I learned a lot about Justice and Mercy and Immutable Laws vs. the Laws of God. God obeys all law, that's what makes him God, because he is perfectly Obedient. If not, He would cease to be God! I will look upon my notes for quite sometime and ponder on the things that were taught so that I can become a better teacher, leader, and son of God!

Well General Conference is this weekend... so I challenge all of you to write down your personal questions and the things you feel prompted to. I testify that all your questions will be answered as you listen to the spirit and the inspired words that the Brethren will say!

I love you all - take care!
Elder Hill

The Spirit Guides

    I definitely love serving here in Georgetown! The people here are the Best! I can't even begin to describe my love for them. I would love so much for you all to meet them, they make me so so so happy when ever I am around them. It feels as if I knew them all before this life in the pre-existence. Ahhh… it feels so great to be exactly where the lord wants you to be!

    I have been trying my hardest to find time throughout the day to pray more and speak with my Father in Heaven. It is helping a lot with my spiritual well being. I've noticed that my thoughts don't drift away to pointlessness. And I have caught myself thinking of the Gospel which is a big change for me. I feel that my faith is increased and I don't worry as much. I'm grateful for the Gospel in my life! I'm so glad I came on a mission to serve the Lord. Two years may be long but man o' man I'm loving it. I miss home sure, but serving the Lord is the Best feeling anyone could ever receive.

    I love being able to help the Lord and have him trust me enough to let me teach these wonderful people. It makes me feel like such an instrument in His hands, like it talks about in the book of Mosiah (Ch27:36). When we are diligent and exactly obedient we will be granted the spirit of prophecy and revelation and we will be able to teach with the most important thing... the Spirit!

    We were able to have 3 Baptisms on Saturday...the newest members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Georgetown.

Weeks Are Flying By!

    Well everyone... another week has flown by!  I can't believe how fast that one went.. I feel it went faster than the one before. haha There was so much going on I really can't remember half... I'm behind for the first time in my journal, because I'm so exhausted at night I just want to sleep. But it is all good. I love being a zone leader. I love leading missionaries and teaching by example. I Love the feelings I get through the Spirit.

    I had a great time working in our area and seeing a daughter of God enter the waters of baptism. A---- is 11 years old. We have also been working with her Mom. I was amazed at the spirit I felt at the Baptism. It was definitely one worth writing down and keeping in my memory book forever.
