Sister Moser and I are officially halfway through training....WHERE DID THE TIME GO??
anyway, this week was MAGICAL and GLORIOUS because the gospel rocks. And the atonement is REAL.
We taught Kathy the Plan of Salvation on Tuesday night, and we set her baptismal date for June 13th!!! The lesson before, she told us she didn't want to set a date until she came to church, but Sister Moser and I just felt like we needed to invite her for a specific date anyways, so we did. Sister Moser extended the invitation and Kathy immediately just whips out her calendar and looks at it and says, "well it looks like that day will work." and she just writes it down! then Sister Moser, says, "so....will you prepare yourself to be baptized on that date?" and Kathy says, "well yes, I have to!" Her faith is so strong and she's so solid. We taught her the word of wisdom yesterday and she's good to go. :) We had a mix up about church on sunday, so she didn't end up coming, so her date will now be the 20th, but man we're so excited for her. Literally, Heavenly Father just dropped her in our laps. #blessings
George dropped us. He called us before he headed back up to shift work and told us that he has been fasting and praying and reading his bible, and that he just doesn't feel like he should join our church. so after a few tears were shed, Sister Moser and i got some extremely overpriced ice cream from a nearby convenient store.... sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do.
We also moved a massive load of rocks from a less active member's truck into their backyard in our pros clothes, it was an adventure.
All of a sudden, it's +30 and the sun is out and it's GLORIOUS! and sweaty if you're in a walking area...... Friday, we were trying to contact less-active/part member families, and basically everyone was uninterested. After helping an old man walk his dog (who was also uninterested), we decided to try one more that was a few blocks away. I thought my legs and my entire body was going to just give out from all the walking and the heat, and we knocked on the door, and we just hear, "come in!" so we go in and they were the nicest people ever and we had a good message with them and they gave us water. #miracleseverywhere
We had a conference with the entire mission last week to learn about our work in the DIGITAL AGE!!! We started our training on the ipads. Elder Brent H. Nielson from the first quorum of the 70 came, along with Brother Kelly Mills who is over the international MTC's. We'll be getting ipads this next transfer!
There was a lesson in relief society a few weeks ago about the Book of Mormon. The sister who taught it told us that, "every book of mormon placed converts someone." Even if the person who receives it doesn't read it, that book is now out in the world and someone somewhere sometime will find it and it will bring them to the truth. Sister Moser and I decided to give away at least 2 copies of the Book of Mormon a day each, and even though we're not perfect at it yet, the miracles we have seen are SO REAL! The Book of Mormon is true. I know it. And if you want your life to change for the better, start with the Book of Mormon.
Heavenly Father loves us so much. And our Savior, Jesus Christ, is a living testament of that love.
i love this gospel so much!!!
Onward, ever onward.Sister Jones
