The Last Post - 16 January, 2015

No one can quite understand the entertainment that can be found on Temple Square 
until they have served a year and a half there. Just a few of my favorites:
-Watching countless people wait for the automatic doors to open on the wrong side 
of the door, then look around to see if anyone saw that
-People asking me if we have real cows in the baptistry
-Large groups of Asians and their audible gasps and glances around the 
building as they watch the pin drop demonstration
-Guests asking us if we are Christians after listening to us talk about Christ 
for a few minutes
-Listening to the homeless peoples' stories. They really just want people 
to listen
-And of course watching the change in people's views about the church, 
or their views about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ

Just an update on my investigators:
We received a new investigator this week! He is so cool and he is from 
Saudi Arabia. He is currently attending the U. He has been to church only 
twice, but he is definitely willing to learn more. We start teaching him 
We meet with our Iraqi investigator Sunday afternoon. He is going to bring 
his 6 kids and his wife!! Woah! He is so excited to learn more. We hope the 
Spirit will guide us during that tour. 
We are making appointments left and right with our people and are seeing 
lots of miracles!!

I hope that you all are continuing your missionary work. The work of the 
Lord is so special. Anyone can do it. It doesn't have to be scary. It can be 
done on a bus, in a grocery store, when a telemarketer is calling, when the 
Jehovah's Witnesses come to the door, when the lawn guy comes over, 
at the doctor's office etc. I know that this work is true. Ninety thousand 
18-26 year-olds all out from 10am-9pm each day doing the work of the 
Lord? It shouldn't work. But it does work because it is the work of God. 
I hope you all remember the resources we are all given to be happy. 
The mission will still commence even after I'm released this next week. 

Love you all! 

Sister Steenhoek OUT!
