|Our investigators at Presidents house. Recognize that Moroni in the background? Sick. |
Yesterday we went to a lesson with our convert Ximena. Her aunt and her aunt´s sister were all upset because some of the Elders explained a mission rule for the first time. It was the one about how we can´t go in without a member. Her sister was honestly upset though. She was thinking about NEVER GOING BACK TO CHURCH because of what happened.. I was sad..... honestly I even expressed that I was saddened by that comment. Even the PROPHET talked about that. We cannot be "offended" for any reason nor "taking a break" from the church. It just means that the testimony is weak and that the roots of it were NEVER able to grow deep into the ground. You could even say the foolish man built his house upon the sand! Anyways, we talked about MIT. The most important thing. The gift of the Holy Ghost. I straight out said... Hey you guys the spirit is NOT here right now. You are all members and you have the right to this gift... We also explained how EVERYTHING is related to MIT. Everything. It was interesting to see the difference in when we got there and when we left. We had ALL felt the spirit. Also we all sang the spirit of god and they used their NEW hymn books. (MOM YOU ROCK!) So you could say that we´ve had an excellent week. We also gave the pension a good deep cleaning and its wayyyyy more Homey now. I love it. We even bought a glade plug in! Yeeaaaaa! Proud to be an american! Alright. That´s all for today. I hope you are all finding ways to serve daily. In whatever aspect. Could be something simple. Remember that when you serve others you are serving God. The other day a lady was in the act of falling and my companion CAUGHT her haha. Service right there. We walked away VERY fast though. It was weird. Hope you guys have a great week! Enjoy Elder Stoddards.... urr..... Nathan´s homecoming! SICK! Hope you enjoy the few pics we captured as well. Much love,
Elder Kurtis William Christensen
