Hello everyone! It was a pretty good week.
On Monday nights we have a family home evening with some of our investigators and some members. It was really fun! This week it was our turn to give the lesson! We taught about faith, and read part of Alma 32. Then we gave each one of them some seeds to plant. If they read their scriptures every day, then they get to water their plant! So it’s like a real life experiment as Alma talked about in the chapter. It was lots of fun 🙂
We had ZTM on Wednesday and we talked a lot about how we can prepare people for baptism and how we can plan the baptism so that everything goes smoothly. It was a good meeting. Towards the end we talked about how we can make the Sabbath day more special while we are out in the mission field and what our experience has been. Before my mission, when I went to church, I would just have a special feeling on the Sabbath. I just thought that I was having this special feeling because it’s a day of rest, and I was surrounded by my family. While I have been on my mission I have realized, that it wasn’t because I was with my family or we that were able rest that day. The special feeling was there because of the Sacrament. It is because of Jesus Christ and His Atoning sacrifice that we can be cleansed from sin. It is amazing that each Sunday we can partake of the Sacrament and be made new again. that is why I have that special feeling on that day. I am so grateful that I am a part of this restored gospel, and that we can have all of these amazing blessing!
We had dinner with a member on Thursday. They have a tradition that every time a new missionary come to the area, that missionary (Or in this case missionaries) have to relate a random object to the gospel…it was hard, I don’t even remember what I said! It was a cool way to show that everything can point to Christ!
We helped a member in the Branch plant some roses. It was a lot of fun! The ground is very rocky here! It’s funny! The only reason I know how to garden is because of the Scriptures!
The weekend was pretty good we had an amazing lesson with one of our investigators! The Spirit was so strong! Trios are awesome! I love teaching together. Sometimes it’s awkward to be in a trio. It’s hard to shower in the morning with three of us, but we make it work!
I hope you all had a great week and you are enjoying the warm weather…please send some over here we are cold! 😉
