April 18, 2016

Praying for Mark O, and all the people of the Houston area.  There was a 9 inch rain last night that shut down a lot of the area.

The missionaries are all safe and are just staying inside!  

Mark O's emails today

Mark Owen Vickers

Thanks! Emails this week will be a bit crazy. The library is closed here due to heavy rain. We are staying safe:)

These were taken Saturday night after a Ward party/Luao. One of our
investigators, Sandy, came and had a blast.



(I love these my boy!!!)

Every Companionship, Every Month

To the Missionaries of the Great Texas Houston Mission,

The first quarter of this year has been the best in decades in this mission. This last round of interviews was perhaps the best round we have had since we have been here. Their is great unity of faith and purpose in our mission. This is an important foundation for us to see continued miracles. To sustain the success we have enjoyed, the focus on our purpose needs to remain foremost in our minds. We will be talking more about that in our next zone meetings.

For now, please remember that if we are going to are going to rise to the next level of discipleship and see every companionship baptizing every month, our commitment to finding needs to define us. A commitment to find is really a commitment to believe that the Lord has prepared many of His children. He tell us that is the case in D&C 123 when He says:

12 For there are many yet on the earth among all sects, parties, and denominations, who are blinded by the subtle craftiness of men, whereby they lie in wait to deceive, and who are only kept from the truth because they know not where to find it—

13 Therefore, that we should waste and wear out our lives in bringing to light all the hidden things of darkness, wherein we know them;

We are inspired by some of the great miracles we are seeing because of your faith. This last week, despite having fewer missionaries that this mission has had in years, we found a record number of new investigators. We would like to give a specific shout outs to the following companionships and their remarkable success in finding last week:

Given the storms that have come, please be safe first and foremost. We need to limit unnecessary travel especially in the cars. Be aware of investigators needs and rally to help them and check on their welfare.   Let's use this opportunity to do a lot of good.

We love you are are inspired by your faithful efforts!


President and Sister Mortensen
