Tuesday- It was District Meeting time and the topic was teaching the Sacrament. We made a lesson plan and taught the principles of the lesson. It went really well and the goal was to be able to invite the person you were teaching to accept the invitation of baptism. We did it and they accepted the invite....mission accomplished!! hehe:) We were also given the invitation to invite daily to baptism! We were pumped up to go for it...but we got into a Bible showdown with a Seventh Day Adventist...wasn't exactly the best but we walked away with heads held high and continued and found another keen investigator..so it pays off to get denied by someone because there is always someone else around the corner that is ready! In the process of teaching about the Book of Mormon we were interrupted by a woman of a different church that used some explicit language to explain our church. We ignored her and we continued to teach, and he invited us to his house. Success!
Wednesday- All of our schedule was jumbled up because the Zone Leaders sent us three referrals with set appointments....Graeme was the first person on the list to see:) And well whatever the Zone Leaders did to him he was prepared for us. He claimed he was a healer, and we taught him about the Priesthood and the restoration of it:) He said I know it's true because Jesus told me and we invited him to baptism and he said "Yes"! We also had a kneeling prayer with him and he asked if these things were true and he got his Spiritual Witness. He asked, "What time is your service at?" So hopefully he'll come to church.
Thursday- The day was super slow, nothing was happening, no one was out to talk with so we had to go through our schedule trying to find someone to talk to. To make matters worse, my bike tire EXPLODED! So we had to walk home...then we had an appointment with Mel the Golden Investigator! She's the best, we taught the Plan Of Salvation!:) She loved it and it made sense to her!:)
Friday- Not having a bike makes things really hard and we weren't able to do much work. So we were only able to stay close to our flat so we did what we could. Later in the day we went to see Mel and her family. We ended up playing with the kids for a while it was the best idea I think we had! I had the biggest feeling of joy come to me. She calls us her BLESSING FROM HEAVEN.
Saturday- We had Trade off with Elder Kreiger, and I was chosen to be with him! I was so grateful for this Trade-off because I was able to have a really good talk. We talked a lot about things that have happened to us on the mission, things we are trying to work on as best as we can. We talked for a while and I felt good to talk to him about things.
Sunday- Spoke in Sacrament again, about faith and the rest of the day just seemed to fly and went too fast to even remember what had happened today.
LOVE YOU GUYS!!!
