March 1, 2017 Elder Gong Was Here!

Hey Family,

It's still blowing my mind that Max will be home next week. That's so crazy. Time goes quick. Our Pday was changed to Wednesday this week because Elder Gong was in town and we had a Zone conference with him on Monday. He is awesome. On Sunday we had a Devotional with him where he met every missionary in NYC, shook their hand, and asked a question. Then we had the Devotional part about the importance of the sacrament followed by ice cream served personally by Elder & Sister Gong. It was pretty great. 

Zone conference was also an awesome experience. They spoke to us about the importance of following the spirit, improving our studies & "Teach Repentance, Baptize Converts" which is the new theme of the missionary department. Elder Wilson, Elder Pulu (we are in a trio for the time being) & I got invited to MLC on Tuesday where Elder Gong spoke about how missionary leaders can beat help their missionaries. We also set a new Mission Baptismal goal (because we hit our last one!). 

In other news, I spoke on Sunday. I think it went pretty well. I shared a few conversion stories and tried to point out how Members had influence on them throughout their lives.  It was pretty good timing as well because the sister who spoke right before me is a recent convert and has a very Member missionary work heavy story. Great set up. 

I have some videos to send this week. We're trying to not look like tourists so instead of stopping for a picture I just start up a video and keep walking. Love you family! Don't spoil Max too much!

Con Amor,
Elder Sam McBride
