This week was loco, but they all are so I guess that shouldn’t be news to anyone.
We went to the temple with Humberto and Melissa!
We had a multi-zone conference and it was great! I got to see a bunch of the jokers from the MTC, my old companion, and people who had been in my zone before. Yay! My favorite part was a quote by Elder Anderson: Faith is a power that makes things happen that should happen¨
Faith is a power that makes things happen that should happen. – Elder Neil L. Andersen
It’s true that people have the agency to choose what to do in their lives, but we also have the ability to help everyone remember that at some point they chose to follow Christ and that by doing so again they will be infinitely more happy in their lives.
This week we have been contacting with the Book of Mormon. Asking people to choose any number between 1 and 531 (or however many pages there are in the Book of Mormon in your language) and then asking them to read the page of the Book of Mormon of the number they chose. Every single page of that book testifies of Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father and it’s so powerful when the people can just read it and see that it’s the word of God. So, it’s been really cool to see that people are more interested when they can read directly from the BOM. (Missionary friends: try it out sometime, it’s way fun)
