A lil update for the week, just a few highlights...
We did exchanges with one of the District Leaders in our zone, so I got to work with Elder Liu for a day. Haha! Just like the good ol' days when we were comps. We've just been going around our zone and going to different elders each day to do studies with them so we can get to know them better and see how they're doing. We've been kinda busy lately, so sadly I haven't been able to work out a whole lot. Ah oh well, I hope you all like fluffy pale missionaries for when I get home!
Our area's doing really well though. We got some good families we're teaching that are getting close to baptism. Hopefully, I'll still be here for it! But we have this one member family, and they referred us to brother's brother's family and we have been teaching them now. They came to church for the first time and should be set for baptism on April 26th. But it's cool cause now the family is all stoked about missionary work and referred another family to us that we've been teaching and now we're going over to teach sister's mom later tonight. The ward's been such a big help lately.
We met someone on the street the other night who turned out to be a member (inactive) and went to their house to teach them. It was my first time teaching them but I remember Elder Jackson talking about them. We talked to them for a bit. Brother was just bashing on us and the church saying we're just trying to get money and stuff and how he doesn't need to go to church because he can just pray and feel Jesus. So we just taught them the restoration. When we taught about Christ establishing his church on the earth, I remembered a part I like in Ephesians chapter 5 about how Christ loved the church and that he gave his life for it. So, i shared that to brother and then since we builds houses for a living I was like, so imagine you did all the work and spent all this money building a house for your kids, but nah they didn't want to live there even though you did all that just for them, how would you feel? Then brother kinda caught on to what I was saying. Then I asked how he thinks Christ feels when he gave his life so we could have a church here on the earth, but even though it's just down the street, you don't wanna go to it.. eh it went better in the lesson but it got to him. He said he liked what i said and said i was the best missionary that's ever taught him. Heh, guess the guilt trip worked.
That's good for now. I'll email again on Tuesday and let ya know if I'll be transferring on the 26th.
Love ya! See ya in 135 days!
