Hey Mom and Dad!
Well, it has been a wonderful and sad past week! Elder Bulunga and I were able to see and teach so many people which was sweet! On Friday we get the call for transfer news however, and we were informed Bulunga would be transferred! We had a really awesome companionship, but that's mission life I guess! My new Companion is Elder Palmer. He's from Utah, and is cool! Keen to get some work done with him and continue to build Juapong!
During the week we had some awesome lessons on the Restoration with some of the friends of members. The lessons were just flowing so smoothly and the spirit was so strong and we taught and testified of Joseph Smith being a prophet, about Christ and his Gospel and everything! The spirit was working so strongly in those we taught, and it was an awesome feeling when we saw some of those that we taught in Sacrament this Sunday just gone! Being that instrument in the Lords hand to help others come to know and feel of the spirit is so sweet!
We were able to extend some baptism dates too which was great. We are planning and praying and doing our best to make sure we have quite a few baptisms this August! So we have alot of work to do, but I know we are able to do it! Of course it takes hard work, but that's kind of the definition of mission work haha.
Sunday was fun too! I spoke last minute again in sacrament which was all good. We had a fun/awesome class combined in the last hour of church and it was just on the Book Of Mormon! Alot of people out here who aren't members think it's a devilish book and it's evil and all this nonsense haha! So we helped teach with President and encourage the members how they can betetr study it, know it's teaching and defend and share it!
After all it's the keystone of our Religion, and it contains the fullness of the Gospel! Being on mission I've come to see how true this book is, and the spiritual power it contains that we can have access to when we diligently and sincerely seek to study, ponder and pray about it's words. Moroni the legend, sums it up so awesomely!
Keen to see how this upcoming week goes along though! Alot of wonderful people to teach, follow up on and many others to get out and share the good news of the Gospel with!
Hope you's have a great week though! Love you! xx
