Multi-Zones, Elder Dyer, and Sacrament Meeting Talks!

27 04 2016

It was another busy week! I was able to see a lot of old friends. Our two zones happened to be together for my last multi-zone! Elder Dyer also bought me some new Kobe 11’s…..He is just too charitable… He is the best!

I also gave a talk in Sacrament Meeting this past week. It was actually the first talk that I’ve given during my entire mission but I was happy to do it. I spoke on the most recent conference talk by Elder Renlund. It is a great talk and I’ld encourage you all to read it:) It’s titled “That I Might Draw All Men Unto Me”.
Sorry I don’t really have much time but I’ll do my best to be better next week! I hope you all have a great week!

Eric and Deva’s Baptism!!

21 04 2016

What a great week! My testimony in the power of priesthood blessings grew, Eric was baptized, Deva was baptized, and Kobe scored 60 points in the final game of his NBA career. #BlackMamba

Earlier this week I started to feel sick. It hit me like ton of bricks one night and I was not very happy. I knew exactly what it was because I had felt it about 2 months ago in Lake Elsinore and it lasted for about 2 weeks…. I remember writing to you all about how stubborn I was in asking for a priesthood blessing. Well I learned my lesson:) I asked for a blessing the next night instead of being prideful and waiting two weeks. GUESS WHAT! The Priesthood is real and blessings really do work! It’s true, I checked! I was fine just two days after initially feeling sick. It’s soooo much easier that way.

Eric! Eric was baptized this past sunday. He had a pretty interesting story. When we first started meeting with Eric, he told us he was meeting with us as a favor to a friend. To make a long story short, the gospel is true! There is a real converting power that comes as we live the gospel of Jesus Christ.

17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself..

If you are not sure if this message is true, just do it with a sincere heart and feel your heart change! Although his initial desires may not have been the most sincere, he did have other desires that were sincere. He really did feel a difference when we met with him. When he read the Book of Mormon. When he came to church. When he prayed to his Father in Heaven. As a result, Eric has now entered in at the gate.

DEVA! What a story. She was the best friend of Jessica Betancourt. I remember the very first time we met with Deva. She was pretty stubborn… But I also remember walking away from the lesson feeling that she would get baptized one day. Deva’s courage and faith is an example to me. As she began to live the gospel she felt something that she could not deny. Even though her family had strong concerns about her joining the gospel of Christ, she chose to act on the feelings and impressions that God had given her. And now she has a large church family to support her!

The gospel is so true! God lives! He loves us so much! He will always take care of His children. Jesus Christ is our Savior! He is the Savior of the world but He is also our own personal Savior. He knows everything we go through. Living the Gospel doctrines and principals will change you and bring a new light into your life.

Have a blessed week! Love you all!

Corona Week 2!

16 04 2016

Sorry I didnt get an email off last week! There just isn’t enough time in the day!

Well I hope you all enjoyed conference as much as I did! Those guys are super inspired and they are all called of God. It’s true. I checked. But seriously! I felt so much love coming from all of them! I believe that they see us through Gods eyes. They see how much eternal worth every single child of God has. Love those guys..

Well this week was busy and great! I think one thing that really stood out to me is the power of the spirit in conversion. There is no replacement. The spirit is the most important single element in the work of salvation.

Earlier this week, we were teaching an inactive family. They have been inactive for quite a few years and the ward has been trying to reach out to them and invite them back for a long time now. We had dinner at their house and afterwards, we begin to share a message with them regarding the Book of Mormon. In the last paragraph of the introduction to the Book of Mormon there is a promise and one of the things that we can come to know by reading the Book of Mormon is that the Church of Jesus Christ is the Lord’s kingdom once again established on the earth, preparatory to the second coming of the Messiah. As we read that this member was very touched and almost concerned about the second coming. We began to refocus the discussion to preparing for the second coming and asked her what she needs to do to prepare. After much guidance from the spirit and the Lord working on her heart she began to get very emotional and told us that she needs to go back to church. She told us that she felt a strong swelling in her heart and she has known for a long time that she needed to come back to church. It was such a tender moment and the best part is that she came! She came to church on Sunday and EVERYONE was talking to her! She never stopped smiling. I’m so grateful for the spirit and the role that it plays in our becoming converted unto the Lord.

Well thats about it for this week! Hope all is well for yall! keep it classy!

Love,

Elder Fischer
