Hope that the last week was great! Mine was except I got a cold and that is no fun. I woke up the morning of District meeting and my voice was gone! Put on my glasses and went to the meeting. It was really good.
We taught this one lady but she kept putting up walls to her heart. Sometimes she would feel the Holy Ghost telling her that what we are saying is true. I just looked at her and prayed so hard that the spirit would be so strong and that she would feel it.
I am over the cold but still really tired.
We had exchanges with Sister Kaufusi and Sister Thomas.
They are hard working missionaries.
They released a lot of their investigators and
are working on finding and less active work.
This year, exchanges are going to be different --
Sister Davis and I are prepping for it --- just really more planning on our part.
We had to give a training to the missionaries in our zone and it was crazy awesome!! We focused it on member missionary work on social media. Three members even came and we did a real action role play with teaching them a lesson from the scriptures about Alma and Amuleck then having them contact their friends over Facebook. It was awesome. I am so glad that we get to have online proselyting in our mission! It truly has helped progress the work here in Sacramento!
I had a lot of time to think about this last year and
I really took to heart this scripture this week- Alma
"I say unto you, can ye look up to God at that day with a pure heart and clean hands?
I say unto you can you look up, having the image of God engraven upon your countenances?"
I learned so much and grew my love for the Lord, the gospel, others and myself so much!
I found joy and I have the desire to grow that all the time.
That became my motto last year and I want it for this year too.
Although, I want to add diligence to it too.
I've learned so many great habits, knowledge, and
love for my Heavenly Father and Savior
and I just have to keep it up.
