Hola Familia y Amigos!
Well this week was a week packed full of things
that did not
include tracting doors that much unfortunately but did
sickness again as well as a dentist appointment. On Tuesday
Bills, Elder Peterson, and I had to go to the dentist for Elders
because one of his teeth has been bothering him recently. The
appointment was about 30 minutes away from Lawrence into
Hampshire. We finished there but did not get back to Lawrence
about 5:30 and then we had to go to our Coordination meeting.
coordination was over we basically did not have any time to work
our area so that was kind of a bummer.
Then on Wednesday we had a
great Zone Conference up in Exeter, New
Hampshire and it was really awesome.
The topic of Zone Conference was
on the Book of Mormon and I learned a lot on
how I can better utilize
the Book of Mormon in teaching and personal
progression in the Gospel.
Something that was said about the Book of Mormon
that we can learn
from it, is that: "We should keep the perspective that
(temptations, difficulties in life, a passing of a family member,
just trials in general) are blessings for us and that they
ultimately make us stronger. Also that the Book of Mormon helps us
better understand the "Why" of Christ's life while the Bible helps
to understand and know what He did during His life.
Elder Bills got sick and so we came home and stayed in
all day after going to
an appointment. Unfortunately our investigator
was not home for the
appointment and we were not able to have any
lessons that day. Friday we had
a good lesson with our investigator
V. We taught the Gospel of Jesus
Christ (Faith, Repentance,
Baptism, Receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and
Enduring to the
End) and talked a lot about baptism and confirmation and why
it was so
important. The cool thing was when we asked her if she knew the
of Mormon is true and she bore powerful testimony and how she has
conviction of its truthfulness. She is super awesome so please
for her because she is having some health problems right now and
is the first lesson we had with her this transfer.
On Saturday we
had a great day it wasn't full of work but we had a
great activity that the
Lawrence Ward does every year called the
International Festival. The
festivals purpose is to display all the
different cultures that are in the
Lawrence Ward which are many. It
was really cool because each different
country had there room that
they decorated and brought typical dishes that
you would have if you
were in those countries. The different countries that
was Republica Domincana, Guatemala, Columbia, El Salvador,
Rico, and Venezuela are the main ones that I can remember right
They also displayed music or dances from those countries. It was
blast and a good activity for investigators and less actives to come
unfortunately none of our investigators were able to make it, but
still really good.
Well that was my week this week and I hope you all had
week. I know that this Gospel is true and can bless the lives of
those that applies its principles. I know that my Savior Jesus
lives and that through His loving and infinite Atonement we can
happiness and joy in this life. I also know that through acts
service we can show the Saviors love to others and show that we
followers of Him.
