Not that I’m counting down or anything………21 Ha!
This came to me today. The whole mission I’ve been looking for a “silver bullet”. The thing that I can tell everyone and instantly they are interested. I keep learning that, everyone is different! I wish we could look in the PMG and it would tell us what to say and do, which it does for some things, but this is how the mission is helping me learn things. The PMG could have more things inside, more scriptures more references, more everything, but that’s not the point. It’s super stressful but fun to go to the scriptures and find scriptures that will help others find their answers to their questions. The Lord wants us to learn and grow through experience. I’ve learned that The gospel of Jesus Christ is always the answer to everyone’s questions. We just need to figure out how do we help others find their answer in The Gospel of Jesus Christ.
This week we also went and and worked and worked and worked. We hit the streets and talked with everyone we ran into. Results… Miracles. We got 3 referrals from Salt Lake and one of them is super cool. Some of them live super far away and it’s hard to contact them but one has a lot of potential. We taught him the restoration and it was a good lesson, he has a lot of questions. His name is Brother ***. He’s super busy with his work but I know him reading the book of mormon will help him!!
So we went on splits almost everyday this week and I normally go out with *** and talk with him about all his problems and then we teach people. He’s super funny and it’s always easier to talk with people on the street with him there. So *** and I ran into a couple, the husband is Buddhist and the wife is Catholic. We invited them to come to church and we both had a feeling that we got them. Sure enough, they gave us a call on Sunday morning and then came to church. This doesn’t happen very often!!
We also had one of our English class students come to church. She’s pretty interested in our church and is already friends with two of our members who attend English class.
Brother *** and his wife are also doing alright. I talked to brother *** about baptism and his wife will only be here for 2 weeks after I leave so I told him that they seriously need to prepare to get baptized. Brother *** is on board I think but his wife is still a work in progress. Pray for miracles!!!
Some spiritual stuff.
There is no spiritual experience in living by convenience – Elder Holland
Life is no spiritual picnic – Elder Andersen
If we don’t teach tithing simply enough and thoroughly enough we are baptizing less-actives who can’t go to the temple.
The scriptures are laid before thee, yea, and all things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator.
Everything denotes that there is a God! Do you know where this is in the Book of Mormon
I’ll just tell you haha, it’s in Alma 30:44
3 And I, Nephi, did go into the mount oft, and I did pray oft unto the Lord; wherefore the Lord showed unto me great things.
We share this scripture with a ton of people! Super good. What is the mount everyone???
Alma 31:38 And the Lord provided for them that they should hunger not, neither should they thirst; yea, and he also gave them strength, that they should suffer no manner of afflictions, save it were swallowed up in the joy of Christ. Now this was according to the prayer of Alma; and this because he prayed in faith.
Lets pray in faith everyone!!!
We can always learn things if we dive into the scriptures each and everyday. Just Do It. You’ll see blessing, I promise!!
