Hey Mom and Dad!
So this week has been great. No baptisms, they all were cooridnated to the 19th of sep to combine with the sister missionaires candidates in the ward. But the people we have been teaching have been so solid, keeping committments and making the necessary changes in their lives ay! Im seeing them apply Christ and his Atonement into their lives and it brings joy to see them change! Seeing them grow in Faith and act unto Repentance, its wonderful to see!
Weve met some awesome new investigators too who the members have introduces us too. The members really help the work so much. Its great to hear what the people say about members in the ward who have been an example to them and made them interested in the Gospel. The ward mission plan is really emphasised in Nungua ward.
Speaking of Church though i blessed sacrament on Sunday too! Felt like i was a priest again...lol! But the Young Men in our ward are super cool, and are really good dudes. Weve been working alot with the auxillary leaders in visiting less actives and seeing referrals. The ward has really opened up with us over the last week!
Ive really been trying to improve in my teaching though, and its been improving alot. I think teaching skills are a thing that you learn to gain throughout your whole mission. But you can feel the spirit so strongly in the lessons when were teaching, its just awesome!
Weve got our ward movie activity though this Friday. Should be fun! Will be watching Meet the Mormons. Hopefully the members bring some friends. Weve been working with the bishopric and ward mission leader in preparing and organising the event, Weve just been looking for places to print posters and flyers, and it took ages for bishop to approve the budget lol. But i think it will be a good activity.
We started teaching this one guy the other week and when we had taught him about the Plan of Salvation and Eternal Families, he was really shocked and happy. Its really a blessing for us to have these restored truths on the earth today. It really shows how Perfect Heavenly Fathers Plan is. I know it is! The guy, his name is Federick was telling us how he never had heard this doctrine before, and hes said that he just knew the church was true. Im looking forward to teaching him this upcoming week though.
But Elder hatch has been really teaching me alot of the last weeks. Been making me take the lead on the lessons, which has been a real learning experience. Ive been recognising the spirit when teaching alot mroe and helping those we teach recognise it too. Ive really been trying to take in as much as i can just to prepare in case i get told im training when Hatch go's home! So im pretty excited.
But our week has been great. We were able to see alot of people this past week, and see some members too. Were becoming well aquainted with the members of the ward now and its just making the work so much more smooth for us and those coming unto Christ. Its cool too see and hear from our investigators that they loved church or that they really enjoyed what was taught and they tell you about it.
Love and miss you guys though! Get Keanu to shoot me some emails lol! I think i sent him one last week. Its cool to hear from that skux guy with his fresh hair cut lol! Anyways hope you guys have a good week. Love and Miss you heaps!
P.S. Happy Fathers Day for Yesterday though Dad! Sorry I forgot about it. They don't have it here lol. I'll send you a voodoo doll in the mail from the Juju locals haha!
