Hello everybody!! This week has been full of events and it was amazing!
Sister Munk and I had MLC, it was the coolest ever.
We had an activity where there were two lines and
you had to say a compliment to the person right across from you.
The compliment had to be in the lines of the four pillars of the mission
( Obedience, Attitude, Knowledge, Work Ethic)
we only had to say these compliments within 20 secs.
After it was up you move over to the next person and compliment them.
After that role play we all felt really good and more unified.
So being more unified,
we looked at the people who are on date to be baptized in the month of October
and made a goal.
The goal is 25!
We had a training after about how we really need to focus on what helps those come closer to the water of baptism -- it happens when we love them -- when we love those we serve. So Matthew 22:36-39.
Master, which the great commandment in the law?
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,
and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment. And the second like unto it,
Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
Love and charity is how this whole thing started. Our Heavenly loved us so much to create a plan where we can become like him. Love us so much that he sent His only begotten Son to die for us so we can live with Him again. Love everyone!
So with that all in mind, the Zone leaders with Sister Munk and I,
had to take what we'd learned and give a training to the missionaries in our zone.
We did the same activity,
but focused on how our attitude really does effect the way we work together
as a zone and individually in our own areas.
Sister Munk's first one and she was the bomb!
Attitude in missionary work is everything. And in life.
The clothes you can be sad in are the same clothes you can be happy in.
We did park service- we shoved wood chips for two hours and let me tell you-
our arms were sore.
It was so nice to wear jeans and work outside! I love service!
I went on a exchange with Sister Lalomanu in her area and Sister Davis came to our with Sister Munk.
I love those sisters sooooo much. There awesome!
I had my interview with President this week and every time I come out of that room I feel ten times better and so happy. He is the greatest! We talked a lot of how I changed and a few other things.
Ron got the Aaronic priesthood yesterday at church.
He was so happy!
He can't wait to go to the Temple and do Baptisms for the Dead for his family members!
Aaron (another recent convert) wants to do that as well, so one of these days this week
we are going to find some family names from our family history
and take them to the temple!
I am so excited!
Zach finally came to church!!!! It was awesome! He loved it!
We are now finding more and one of many things we are starting is to bike in our area! This area is soooooooo hilly!! My legs hurt! But in a good way! Wish us luck this week because this one is going to be really busy!
