18 Jan 2015

Another great week! On Monday we played with a soccer ball where you have to hit all the chairs that everyone is guarding. I won the last game. It was an uneventful day. 

We taught a special needs guy this week. His name is Ryan. He is less active so all we really had to do was tell him to start coming to church. Then that night we taught a girl who is a recent convert who has gone less active. Elder Wells and I had to split because we were double booked. So I taught that lesson with my WML. It was a good lesson. We taught about the Atonement of Jesus Christ and how it can help her through her trials no matter how big or small. 

On Friday we had district meeting. We learned about how to begin teaching. Then the Zone Leaders have a training on the things we need to do to receive all the blessings we can. That night we taught the Ruis family. She has been getting help from the bishop and the bishop told us to go by and teach her. We were a little cautious when we got there because we weren't sure if she was meeting with us because of welfare or interest. It is Sister Ruis and her two sons living there. The church they have been going to has been telling lies about the LDS church. As we taught, we resolved concerns we didn't even know they had. It was a really good lesson and the spirit was strong.  After the lesson was over our ward mission leader was explaining the Godhead to the mom. When he mentioned the Holy Ghost she said, "Is that what is here right now?" It was so awesome and she told us that the could feel the Spirit of God with us. We put the mom and her 10 year old son on date for February 20th. 

After that we had a lesson with some of our other on date investigators and a miracle happened. We were teaching the plan of salvation, word of wisdom and law of chastity. When we were teaching the Law of Chastity, Elder Wells went to grab a pamphlet from his bag and then realized we were out of chastity pamphlets. We had run out the week before. We went through his bag last week and we both saw that he didn't have a Chastity pamphlet. But Elder Wells grabbed a pamphlet out of his bag and it said "the law of chastity" on it. So we had a pamphlet appear out of nowhere. So we have 5 people on date for February.
