I have finally gotten to the last week
of my training! It has been going by so fast! I am so excited to really be a
full missionary and now see if I can do it on my own!
This past week has been really great! On
Monday we had tried to get a less active sister to a members home for dinner
and then she canceled last minute. We however had a great dinner with them and
helped prepare them for conference.
On Tuesday we helped out a sister work
on her mother-in laws house next door to finish it before they move in. They
still have a way to go though. We helped pull off wallpaper in the bathrooms.
We found out that the edges of our name tags work well scrapping off the
wallpaper. Not the best idea but it did the job.
On Wednesday we had great district
meeting and talked about teaching people not lessons. We role played teaching
and trying to find put different concerns someone might have towards baptism.
The ones who was the investigator would have to a concern and the missionaries
would have to figure out the concern with asking questions. It was hard but i
realized how important it is to ask good inspiring questions! I need to focus
on listening before i think about what to say next. I don't do it but i can see
how much harder it is for me to know that the spirit is telling me what to say,
After district meeting we came back and had lunch and then did some studies and
went out to try to find some Investigators. Luckily we did find a 13 year old
girl who was really excited to learn more. She was the only one we found to be
home. We set up an appointment for Saturday.
On Thursday we had our normal
studies then went with a member from the ward to see a less active family we
saw last week. The sister who brought us is actually her visiting teacher.
After our visit we came home and had visit with a sister that lives in our same
apartment complex. She has been having a hard time. Her daughter has been in a
group home for a little outbreak she had about a week ago. We talked about
Faith and trusting God.
On Saturday we had a crazy
morning we went to go see the 13 year old girl and she didn't want us to teach
her and we knew her family talked her out of it. Saying that our church was a
"man made church."
It was sad but the day was
much better when we went to the women's conference. I loved all of it. Lots of
talking about families and how we need to comfort and mourn with all of our
members and brothers and sisters. I absolutely loved President Eyring's.
Sorry again i lost time! I hope
you all have a great week! I hope you enjoy conference and really focus on
Easter and what it means! If you haven't seen the new "Because He
Lives" video i suggest that you should #Becausehelives! Have a great week
