This week has been packed with fun and spiritual experiences! We as a zone went to a service project called the Clean Extreme. Sister Gallegos sent you a picture of Sister Pielstick and I painting the Lake Elsinore Library. I was able to be in a library for about 6 hours which was amazing and not only that but I was allowed to paint.
Then we had Multi-zones! The focus of the meeting was how we can teach simply. Here are three things that stood out to me:
- When you invite to do C.P.R ask it by simply "will you"(Church, Prayer, and Reading)
- You have to teach with the Book of Mormon to change the hearts of men (object lesson was to take a ball and hold it with one hand. Each of your fingers in your hand represents a tool we study to teach.Thumb: BofM, pointer: Bible, middle: Preach My Gospel, ring: 12 week, and pinky: Missionary library like Jesus the Christ and True to the Faith. If you use everything but the Book of Mormon you cannot teach with power to change the hearts of men.)
- Then rely on the Spirit to direct you on what to say
So as a celebration of our 7th month mark together, we got Slurpees from 7- Eleven! We hit 7 and 11 to go! We're creative!
This week I have learned that God sometimes changes our perspective so that we can learn in a different way. Since I was studying about charity, God allowed me to see and feel His love for those I serve. I think that was another reason why we were able to find 6 new investigators! Most of them we found out walking and was able to come back to share the video.
