This week was great. The craziest part about the week was that on Wednesday all of the missions around the world received a training from the leaders of the church about the change in the missionary schedule. The changes are very small but still are quite a change from what I have been used to for the past 15 months. One of the coolest changes is that preparation day is now longer!! I am sure that every missionary in the world is happy about that change!
This week Elder Lund and I had some awesome experiences teaching lessons and each lesson varied so much!
Earlier in the week, we had a chance to meet with C and her family. We mainly just answered concerns and focused on how they can get an answer to their prayers. At the end of the lesson we committed them to pray about baptism. Well this Sunday they came to church and we followed up on their prayer and C said that she feels like she is getting closer to being ready. She asked us if we could come over more during the week to get her questions answered. We gladly accepted and told her we would!
Then Elder Lund and I went over to our ward mission leader's house because he and his brother invited their friend B to listen to our message. We ate brisket and then taught B the restoration. The best part of the lesson was when Josh, who is a member, shared his testimony with B in a powerful way and promised him so many blessings! It was amazing how real and how bold his testimony was to B and it brought such a powerful influence of the Spirit. B accepted our invitation to read the Book of Mormon and come to church! -The power of friendship in conversion!
And last but not least, we taught D the plan of salvation last night and it went great! It was also a lot of fun because we used flashcards to teach the lesson. I personally think that everyone there learned a lot because of the visual aids that helped us teach! It was so funny because she called it the "Jesus Puzzle" haha! We liked that spin on it.
Well hope that you all have a great day and enjoy the week!
