This week was another crazy week. It went so
fast and I am still surprised that today is Monday!
Last Monday we were able to see two Less
active we haven't been able to meet yet. Really this entire week has been like
Tuesday we did some service in a members
home cleaning through her craft room. She is big on jewelry making too. I have
never seen so much beads before. Crazy right when i'm the one saying it! We
talked our jewelry making language and talked about different stuff as we all
organized and cleaned. Poor Sister Behrmann was kind of lost.I of course was in
happy land and loved it!!! LOL!
That night we had dinner with a family
who has the cutest girls and the dad is the Ward Clerk and he gave us a
"Lost Sheep Record." This list become the rest of the weeks plans. I
was able to use your advice dad and we saw and visited everyone on the list,
but some we still haven't made contact with.
Really there was a lot of driving and
visiting and boy i was so tired everyday returning home and i had to push
myself just to write in my journal. The idea that i didn't wan to regret it
later was a pretty good motivator.
In the contacting all the Lost
Sheep we still had planned lessons with other less actives. At this point we
have lost contact with our investigator and the other hasn't said that its safe
to come back. We have lost our investigators and are in need of them. I can see
what Jonathon was talking about that it gets kind of slow and boring when we
don't have new people to teach. We saw lots of less actives though and the
lessons with them was amazing. We had one where we were trying to see why they
weren't coming to church but instead they talked and asked us questions about
the Plan of Salvation. The discussion let us to talking about church and the
mom said that she wants her oldest son to be baptized when he turns 8. It was a
great lesson and a great discussion. I knew that the Lord helped us know what
to say and what to do. I noticed how important it is to listen to the spirit so
we could know what to say. If we didn't we could have gotten them to open up to
We invited a sister to come to
dinner with one of the members who they are friends with tonight. We had a
great lesson planned tonight and then before we closed our study and planning
she called and canceled on us. Luckily we still have dinner the members and
were able to change the lesson to fit more to them.
On Saturday we helped at a 5K
race fundraiser for a school one of the members son with autism goes to. We
tried to find new investigators and talk but we had an impression not too. I
didn't want to ruin the event for the family we came to help with (mom was in
charge of the race).
Yesterday was also great
as well. Sundays on the mission are great and really are the best. I have
noticed that it is so easy for me now to make comment in the lessons and be
more in the discussions. We had a great lessons today all on the prophet and
testimonies. It's amazing when you realize that the lessons are similar and
they weren't meant to be. I can see that the Lord had some impression and doing
to make it that way.
Well this is really my
week. My week was full of tender mercies. I have felt a little homesick as i
noticed that this will be my first time away from home for general conference.
I will be missing my omelet and french toast. With the women's conference this
weekend hit me the most. I won't be going with my Mom and holding her hand when
they talk about mothers and daughters. (That includes the Grandmas as well). I
hope you all get something out of Women's conference this week.
Well y'all i don't think
there is much more to say than to say love you and have a great week! Also,
With General Conference coming up don't forget to prepare for it. I have been
and am so ready to see it pay off! Enjoy your week and take care!
