Elder Bolliger Colton, CA Week 91: Details about Jump Starting the 40 Day Fast

40 Day Fast

Well day one was last Tuesday.

Day #1 - Tuesday,May29 - Victoria B opened the 40 day fast on this day. You'll remember from earlier emails about how much of a drastic change she has made in her life and how important the gospel is to her. Her miracle was that she was able to contact one of the ladies that she Visiting Teaches for the first time and she got in and she has not been able to do that at all. And was really really excited.

Day #2 - Wednesday,May 30 - Bishop Sorensen, he fasted and a name came to mind of someone that he had shared the gospel with in the past and he was able to talk to his boss about the gospel, and it was a missionary opportunity.

Day #3 - Thursday, May 31st - Kathy B fasted this day and during dinner over there and break the fast, one of her visiting teaching  people called her half way during dinner, this was something that has never happened ever to her from this particular person and they had a very, very good discussion.

Day #4 - Friday, June 1st - The Donovans fasted and we shared with them the MRR lesson.

Day #5 - Saturday, June 2nd - Brother Smith fasted.

Day #6 - Fast Sunday -  we put everyone on there to make them sacrifice more and not have the easy way out.

Day #7 - Today, We haven't heard anything yet but next week hopefully.

(Question by family) How are you doing with your 6:30 am rising?

A lot better actually, See below for reasoning. Like Today we woke up at 5:45 which isn't too hard especially in the summer as the sun rises early. And its light by 5:30 so it makes it a lot easier, but winter when the sun gets up at 7:30, now that's a little more hard, but I assume in college I will be getting up early a lot to work and stuff.

(Question by family) It looks like Erin works at the store in Palm Desert near Palm Springs?

 Thats about an hour drive from here in Colton, and its mighty hot there like 90s and 10% humid at night time.

(Question by family) What ward activities do you have coming up that will involve missionary work?

There is a BBQ/ Church Tour but that is still in the planning stages for now, we will see where it exactly goes.

(Question by family) What are you teaching this week for your district training?

Not sure yet, I need to think about it still. Ill chose something.

(Question by family) How often do you write to your mission president?  Is it weekly?

Most Weeks yeah.

(Question by family) How has your testimony grown recently?

In how much fasting and praying can really open the windows of heaven and soften peoples hearts. Alma 6:6 and Alma the Elder with his son. So Missionary work and Ward unity.
