We lost all of our baptismal dates this week. We still have a few investigators, but it's difficult to keep in contact with them. I am continually impressed with how simple and powerful missionary work is when the members and the missionaries work perfectly in harmony. We find when we teach, and we teach when we find.

Elder Bednar in his April 2008 Conference Talk "Ask in Faith" said, "We properly pray for the safety and success of the full-time missionaries throughout the world. And a common element in many of our prayers is a request that the missionaries will be led to individuals and families who are prepared to receive the message of the Restoration. But ultimately it is my responsibility and your responsibility to find people for the missionaries to teach. Missionaries are full-time teachers; you and I are full-time finders. And you and I as lifelong missionaries should not be praying for the full-time missionaries to do our work!"
