Hey this week was good. We got back at 3 Wednesday in the morning. Had a meeting with the zone later in the morning, ate some pizza and lomitos and then we watched a meeting for the missionaries around the world. They talked a lot about the missionary work with members and teaching with the spirit. Something I liked was talking a lot about repentance. To the effect we teach repentance and baptize converts. It was cool to listen to.
Later in the day we had to do some zone plans and then went to a BBQ for the ward. Hahaha just happened to be the day I got here they had one too. So I got to know a lot of cool members.
This area is smaller than my last one but the ward is better. It's actually a branch still cause we are in a district but it's cool. The members actually hold their callings and fulfill them.
Sunday in the church I was stressed, just cause it was a habit to be stressed in my last area. Sundays were always stressful cause the members scared away the people we brought. The church was run down. The bishop, well we never knew if he would be there or no, we taught all the classes and led the music and also talked most Sundays. Ha here I got to church and they have a different schedule. Sacrament is first here and I was asked to talk before so it wasn't a surprise. After I pretty much just participated in the classes and helped Antonella (the miracle we are teaching) in the classes. Ha super relaxing compared to the other ward. So it was a very nice Sunday. Makes me think of the churches we have in good ol Utah and how they work. Sometimes I feel like we all get a little too lacks though at home and get stuck in the rut of just talking during class instead of teaching. Anyone can physically go to church but saints go spiritual. If something isn't how we want it we can't complain until we've done what we can to change it.
So the emergency transfer was cause a kid has a few bad discs I guess in his back so he is in the mission home with physical therapy and yeah, that's why all this happened so sudden.
Coolest, most chosen lady I have ever seen. So my comp had contacted a lady in the street before and we had a date to return. We went to see how she was and Holy Moses..... Long story short, she is getting baptized the 31st. We taught her twice, felt the spirit super strong in each lesson and she understands a lot. Never knew the Mormons but when we taught her about everything she was kinda frustrated because she didn't find it before and started crying. We would just share our testimonies and she would get teary eyed and wow.. We take the church for granted a lot. There are people that go to church for the first time and are impacted so strong it's hard for them to explain. Makes me think about us needing to find holy places and being elevated in a spiritual aspect. TEMPLE!!! If we are comfortable in the church and don't feel the spirit as strong, it's time to go to the temple.
Hey love you guys and hope your week goes great.
