Yesterday, my companion and I made a get well card for one of our investigators children who was sick. He really liked dinosaurs so we put dinosaurs on his card.
Funny Story of the week:
This isn’t really a story…
But my companion and I are really crazy when we are trying to fall asleep. The other night we started saying good night and I love you in other languages and then we started other random words we know in random languages, like Stinktier! (Sorry I’m not good at spelling German!) and Alce (moose in Italian). Also, she keeps telling me Book of Mormon stories in her own voice, that means everyone in the scriptures says “Yo” “Guys” “Hey” “What’s up?” “Dude” and other modern day slang. What a character!
So I just remembered another real funny story:
We had a scripture battle with the Elders. We were dropping them of to an appointment and they left their food from the soup kitchen in our car (It was pasta). later we asked them if they still wanted it, The said no and we said ok it was pretty good anyway here is the rest of our text conversation:
- Elder: Well then we both win! 🙂
- Sisters: Thanks for helping us get fat!
- Elders: Yeah, welcome to the mission field…
- Sisters: And your making Sister Peterson even fatter!!!
- Elders: D&C 64:10
- Sisters: Forgiveness, yes. But it doesn’t say anything about revenge.
- Elders: D&C 98 23-24
- Sisters: D&C 54:5
- Elders: D&C 49:18-19
- Sisters: Jeremiah 8:15
- Elders: Alma 28:6
- Sisters: 2 Nephi 4:31
- Elders: 2 Nephi 4:27
- Sisters: Jeremiah 8:22
- Elders: Jeremiah 8:21
- Sisters: Jeremiah 8:18 and 20
- Elders: Jeremiah 9:18
- Sisters: Isaiah 35:10
- Elders: 1 Nephi 5:3
- Sisters: 1 Nephi 15:3
- Elders: 1 Nephi 15:10
- Sisters: Matthew 22:18
- Elders: Matthew 22:12 last sentence
- Sisters: Proverbs 31:26
- Elders: Ecclesiastes 1:2
- Sisters: Matthew 7:3
- Elders: Well… Dang got us there.
- Sisters: Moroni 8:30
I know you will probably not find that funny, but we did! So just humor us!
We were helping a lady shovel her sidewalk one day and she wanted to give us money for shoveling her walk, but we don’t except money from people. She insisted for so long, so Sister Peterson said, “Jesus didn’t accept money for what he did!” and the lady objected “Well Jesus didn’t shovel snow in a skirt!” We just started laughing!
Spiritual Story of the week:
Yesterday, I gave a talk in sacrament meeting, it was about missionary work. I dissected D&C 4:2 it says,
Therefore, O ye that embark in the service of God, see that ye serve him with all your heart, might, mind and strength, that ye may stand blameless before God at the last day.”
I talked about how each thing (heart, might, mind, and strength) has a Christ like attribute, found in Preach My Gospel (Chapter 6 to be exact) So to serve with all your heart, you need Charity and love and hope. To serve with all you might you need to be diligent and obedient. To serve with all your mind, you need have virtue and knowledge. To serve with all your might you need to be patient and humble. And if you do these thing you will be able to stand blameless before God in the last days. It was a really good experience to give a talk! And now we get to teach YWs every second Sunday!
