Wednesday was such a full day! It start off with teaching P, J, and K. They had all been listening to the Book of Mormon on their phones, and K prayed for the first time in her life!!! She was so excited to tell us! We taught them the Plan of Salvation, and J is so great! haha after we would teach a principle, he would start talking about the previous principle, and testify to us that it was true! Haha It was the best! He's agreed to be baptized in February! He lives outside the city, so the Elders there have been teaching him. K also asked us in the lesson if we could show her some scriptures on baptism! Ah I just love these humans so much! They are just absorbing the gospel like sponges. And P has been such a great example for them. She's been less active for the last little bit, and this has been a good opportunity for her to be reminded of the testimony she has.
Wednesday was also the Follow-Up Trainer/Trainee meeting, and Sister A & I were able to give a training on Unity. What a blast! I still remember very vividly when I was at that meeting as a trainee, over a year ago! Time sure does fly. We talked about the importance of being equally yoked together in our companionships. It was great to be able to be open and honest with them about how even with our own companionship, we've struggled! But as long as we have open communication and charity for each other, we can bless our own lives and the lives of those we teach! I've sure learned a lot since living with someone 24/7! And the biggest thing is learning to let the little things go, and be as open as you can. It was a blast to be there with so many new missionaries. It brought back that "greenie" fire for sure!
Update on D- he is still loving the gospel!! We had two lessons with him this week, and we discussed the Word of Wisdom and Fasting. He is just the best! He was so accepting of these commandments. He just keeps talking about how excited he is for his baptism on the 21st, and he will have his Baptismal Interview on Saturday! It's getting so real!
Sunday was so cool. We had 5 investigators at church! Sh, P, and W came, and they brought their friend, C, who is a former investigator! It was fast and testimony meeting, and halfway through the meeting, one of the members went up, and her friend who is from another faith went up as well!! She bore her testimony about how Christ has helped her, and it was the coolest thing!! The Spirit was so strong! We were able to meet with her yesterday, and we're going to start teaching her this weekend. I'm so grateful for the Spirit that exists in Fast and Testimony Meeting, and that it can touch anyone's heart, member or non member!
Well folks, my brain is fried. Haha I wish I could write more, but it's just not happening today! Haha But I love you all so much! God is so good! Have a great week!
