The Gold Mine

November 18,2013...after Stake Conference a sister came up to us and gave us a referral for her neighbor.  Then she left.  Then Elder D and I were planning to go to where she lives the next day and see exactly what this was all about and see if this sister would be able to give us more info. Sunday comes and we get out to Hedon, a tiny little village that is what I thought my mission was going  to look like outside of Leeds and York.  Well we knocked on her door and she welcomed us in.  As we start discussing what we are hoping to happen we start talking about less active members, then something and next thing I know she is pointing to about six other houses that she felt is ready and willing and some of them are even inactives.  Well seriously, she blew us out of the water with referrals but she completely 100% understands of how missionaries and members are suppose to work together so well that missionaries are teaching all the time...its the Gold Mine and we have transfers in a week...
What potentials look like with member help. 
What potentials look like without member help.
A Missionaries job is to polish the gold not mine it.
