I had an amazing week!! I hope you all had a wonderful week too.
The beginning of the week was ok. Tuesday our appointments canceled so
we didn't get to see a lot of people. So we decided to go to some of
the many spots that people hangs around and just tried to talk to as
many people as we could. Not a lot came from it but we did get to talk
to a handful of people. Which made very happy! Wednesday was better
cause we got to see Abdul. He's a really cool guy. We didn't get to
meet with him for very long but the time we did get to was awesome. We
talked to him about the plan of salvation or plan of happiness. It
answers these questions; where do I come from? What is my purpose?
Where do I go when I die? Through the entire lesson he was asking us
questions and he was surprised that we were able to answer some of
them. He is super open to us teaching which is awesome too cause it
allows the Holy Ghost to testify of truth as we teach. Once that
happens he will what to act more on that feeling and make some changes
in his life.
Thursday I had the wonderful time to go on exchanges
with one of the Zone Leaders, Elder Putuato. It was awesome cause we
got to teach a lot of people that close to the waters of baptism and
they are just so excited to follow the example of Jesus Christ and be
clean from there sins. Them that night the ZL's spent the night cause
Friday we were heading to the temple which is in Orlando and we had to be
there at 7am so we had to leave by 6am. So they spent the night and
went there together in the morning. The temple was amazing. This is
the first time I have been able to go as a missionary. The spirit was
so strong and was exactly what I needed. It saddens me that we are
only able to go two times a year. All of you that have temple
recommends go to the temple as often as you can. It will help you with
anything that you might be struggling with.
Saturday and Sunday there was stake conference for the stake I'm in.
It was amazing as well. A lot of the talks center on families. Families is
the one thing that Satan targets the most. There was one talk that I really
like and he talked about where our priories should be. The 4 things are:
1) Being a husband, 2) Being a father, 3) Job, 4) Church calling. The lord
needs your family emotionally, spiritually, financially sound more
than he needs your service. That was from another talk that was given.
It shows how important the family is and that he wants our families
strong so that we can't fall to the things that Satan throws at us. I
want you all to know that I have a testimony of our lord and savior
Jesus Christ. That he established his church during his time on earth
and that it was restored through a prophet. He made families for a
reason. The families that we are in weren't by accident. We were sent
at a certain time and in a certain family for a reason. I love you all
and I know that Jesus Christ loves you and so does our father in
heaven. Hope you all have a wonderful week!
