Well there goes the first week of the transfer. It was a good week! We got some new members to our district! Elder Lowry and I stayed together. We got Elder Itthipornvanich, Elder Macdonald, and Elder Johanson. Monday night we had our weekly dinner at the Poulin's! It was BBQ night! We did an object lesson about keeping the whole Armour of God on and how important it is to always have every piece on! We peeled an orange and dropped it into water! We slowly peeled it off showing how important it is to wear all the Armour of God. It did not quite go as planned but still work out pretty good!
Tuesday came and we were back at the Soup Kitchen. The lovely ladies were so glad to see us! Some of them ever gave us hugs they were so happy to see us. Elder Lowry and I had a good laugh! They have become our temporary Grandma's. They always make sure we don't leave empty handed and give us some of the food!
We saw Velma and Gabrielle today! They are doing awesome we are just waiting and praying for them to get their divorce things in the mail. After that next step is to get hitched and then dunked! It was fun to teach about the law of tithing. For all you teachers of the gospel or even just life lessons here is how we teach it! Always teach the Doctrine and Principles, the doctrine is the why and the principles is the what and how. If we do this with the commandments of the Lord our understanding will deepen of them. As we teach the doctrine instead of the rules will help people change their behaviors and help them to grow a great testimony of these teachings. I would encourage all to study the doctrines of the commandments and than learn of the principles. As you do this I promise you will be a more effective teacher of the Doctrine of Christ.
