|Baptism of Aaron Niccols! An awesome and amazing Guy!|
Wednesday rolled around we went to Montana's with Sis Cepada and Ali. It is always fun as they all get the same thing every time and theni decide to mix it up. I was going to try to liken this to a principle in the Gospel but my mind is not working as effectively as I would like it too haha. Any how we had our appt with James tonight one of our solid potentials and low and behold he evaded us. You know on your mission you really learn to take rejection good. We have so many people that tell us to get lost or else are like "sure come back we would love to talk later" haha. But we just went tracting and some drop bys.
Our Thursday was a lot better! We started our morning off by teaching a less active sister named Cyndie. She is super awesome! She has some memory troubles because of an operation but we are helping her to remember her testimony and all the things that she has learned in the last little while. She knows that this church is true but she is not sure why. So we are re teaching her everything and helping her to learn it all over again. It was fun as elder Tinney talked the whole time and literally gave a whole synopsis of the Book of Mormon and the Bible for 20 minutes. We ended up staying a little bit longer than we wanted but it was good. After that we went to go and teach Lilly. She has an interesting living situation which should be interesting when this comes up but she lives with 7 guys! We are unsure of how to get around this but we will find out haha. She is super awesome and listens soooo well. It is nice when you can teach and testify and they ask questions that they are prompted too and the Spirit just gives you the answer! Oh man it is honestly the best! haha. After seeing Lilly it was yet again time for weekly planning! YAY :P. I really do not know when i will ever get bored of weekly planning haha.
Any ways than we went to go get Bro Bullock to come to our appt with Lishui. He has such a special spirit about him and he made our lesson a million times better as he lightened the mood and connected really well to Lishui. We finished up the Plan of Salvation and it really hit her! She agreed to pray and ask God if this was his plan for her and she was amazed how it answered so many of her questions that she has been struggling with recently. Other than those noteable events our Thursday all in all was not to bad.
|Yup I love my sun! Got a little too much of it well building a fence.|
At church I got to teach Gospel Principles and we had an awesome lesson about the Spirit and discussed, How to recognize it and how we can learn about it. The last little bit of the lesson it was like a wall of the Spirit. We had four non members and other members it was a full class and man was it ever awesome! The Spirit was so strong as we had a mini testimony meeting and allowed these people to understand what the Spirit is like. One of them commented after church how she felt so peaceful and just felt really happy while at church. it made my day! In Sacrament meeting we got to give talks! I had to shorten mine to 7 mins as elder Tinney gave an awesome talk on the Seven deadly Heresies and how it relates to commitments! I got to speak about first obtaining the desire to share the gospel and than Inviting people to make different commitments and sharing the gospel with them by 10 simple ideas! It was really effective! The ward was super motivated and loved our talks and showed a little more drive for going out and being member missionaries.
