So this week was intense!
Monday: we did splits and Elder Tyler went with a member to teach a family about their current job and how they cant do that if they want to be baptized. He said they accepted it very well so we will see how we can help them find a better job. Oh and the merry-go-round after playing mini golf as a district. (Pic below)
Thursday: We vivisted our investigator family and had a great lesson as we shared some great mormon messages. The mother said this, "I know I am not baptized yet, but I have a firm testimony that faith and prayers work!" And we said that you dont have to be baptized to have a testimony. It was so cool! Later we went down to Columbus to visit a less active family. They are very kind and we talked to them about their divine potential. As we talked, we felt inspired to tell and testify to them that they are the key to building up the kingdom of God in the area of Columbus. It was a great experience and we could really feel the Spirit.
Friday: We spent a really long time doing weekly planning and I was getting stir crazy in the apartment... I karate chopped an expo marker...
Saturday: We had lunch with the less active family in Columbus and they invited a non-member friend over! We shared a message with the family then taught the man a lesson! He is super cool and seemed a little interested but we have hope.
Sunday: It was good! Elder Tyler sang a great song in sacrament meeting.
Monday: HUGE mission conference. 200 missionaries in the same building!
This past week was great with getting allergy medicine that actually works and because I was able to recognize the Spirit in our lessons and through out the day. I am progressing and I want to progress faster!
Hope everyone has a great rest of their week!
