So this was another great week. We were pretty busy and we were able to get a lot of stuff done. I’ve pretty much got back to our room like dead tired each night… however I think that’s a good thing.
So this week was also full of random stuff. I don’t know why, but this past P-day I just had a super random desire to read. So I sat down and read all of “Our Search for Happiness” by M. Russell Ballard again. I forgot how a big book it was. Also I got to go on interchanges to the Los Cedros Area (my old area) and see everyone. It was so cool and an important visit. Lastly, the other day a couple of Jehovah’s Witnesses knocked on our door. I think it completely caught them off guard when we open up the door and they saw two Mormon missionaries, hahaha. We tried to talk 4 a little bit but they kind of got angry, so we accepted their pamphlets graciously; however, they refuse to accept our pamphlet. So yeah that was chill
This week we also had a way rad multi-zone training which we co-taught with President Marble. It was way cool because we focused a ton in chapter 10 of Preach My Gospel, “Teaching Skills.” We talked about how those tools are able to guide us so that we may have the Spirit as we teach. In the end, I’ve come to learn that it is impossible to reach our full potential as missionaries (or members), without the guide of the Spirit. It’s one of those things that is so basic yet so essential. It was a way cool training and a great learning opportunity for me.
This week we were really able to see a ton of miracles. During our daily planning, we felt like we should visit a particular investigator. However, that night, as we showed up at their house, to our disappointment, we found there was no one home. Feeling a bit confused on why we had felt so clearly like we needed to go there, we noticed an elderly woman sitting outside of her home and we decided to talk to her. As we talked with her, we found that she was a member. She told us, with tears in her eyes, of her trials of illness and loneliness and how she had been praying that the Lord would send someone to give her a Priesthood blessing, which we gave her. I felt privileged to do so. Also, we were led through another lesson to find the concerns and doubts of a family whose baptismal date had fallen through. We were able to help resolve their doubts and they recommitted to baptism. And another great experience: we were led to a street that I didn’t even know existed in my area. On that street, we were able to find 2 new families to teach. There are also some disappointments with people who, for one reason or another, have decided to stop investigating. But in the end I can’t complain, the Lord is blessing us to find those who want to hear his Gospel. ?Para que ? Ha sido una semana chevere.
Seebs til next week.
