THIS WEEK WAS INTENSE!!!!
First, I want to report that I have written in my journal every single day since I have come to Norwich. Woot-woot! I also would like to say that... MY BROTHER IS A MISSIONARY! So cool!
So this week was crazy because Sister G and I are Sister Training Leaders and we had Mission Leadership Council (MLC), then we had to plan Zone Meeting, and then we had to make Zone Meeting a thing! It was stressful but it was good.
I love being a missionary! There are so many little tender mercies that we see. A huge one was yesterday. L got baptized! She is so cute! They were a part member family and she just decided that it was time! The missionaries had been teaching her for over a year. The spirit was so strong in the meeting. The tender mercy was L and Sister K, the Relief Society President, went after sacrament to choose her baptismal clothes, and after when she got changed she walked out, in a temple dress. Sister G and I just stopped and for a moment the stress of making her baptism perfect was gone and we could just see her in a year or two, beaming like she was, in the temple being sealed to her family. It was so peaceful.
Our Zone Meeting went well, everyone responded well to the theme, which was WORK.
In order to Work with all of our heart, might, mind, and strength we have to keep an eye single to Heavenly Father's Glory, not ours and know that our Work and our glory should also be to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.
It is His Work.
W= Willingness to find 3 new investigators.
O= Obedience, to the white handbook and to the Spirit.
R= Resources we have to make our goal happen like the PVC, Family Finding Pools, and Low Lying Fruit Teams.
K= Know your purpose and your divine call to be in the exact area you are at this exact time.
The fall is beautiful! I love my companion. We were talking about how much we laugh together and how crazy it is that it has only been 3 weeks! CRAZY!
Life is real good.
OH! My ponderize scripture this week is Alma 31:5
"And now, as the preaching of the word had a great tendency to lead the people to do that which was just—yea, it had had more powerful effect upon the minds of the people than the sword, or anything else, which had happened unto them—therefore Alma thought it was expedient that they should try the virtue of the word of God."
Well folks, I hope that you take some time this week and just breathe. Breathing is good. Life is good.
Be good and know that you are loved.
