Wow! This week was pretty eventful even though its summer on campus and there are waayyyyyy fewer people to talk to....its sorta dead.
Andre: IS AWESOME! We had 2 lessons with him this week! He is doing so great and just LOVES commandments sooo much! Which is awesome, because most people have a problem with them and don't want "restrictions", but its amazing because Andre sees them as a guideline on how he should live his life to be a better person!
Thinh: We also saw him twice this week! He is also doing amazing! He has said 3 prayers with us so far and its the first time he has ever prayed ever! They are so amazing and sincere! We taught him about the Restoration and the Book of Mormon! One of his comments was "I know that this information is valuable."!! Yaayy!!!!
Transfers: On Tuesday we drove to transfers to help out with our zone. We had to say goodbye to our good french friend, Elder Boutoille, and our courtyard friend, Elder Huntington, whos area was closed! And our other friend Elder Campbell finished his mission! Sad to see people go and get moved around but we gained some good missionaries too!
Gifts: On Wednesday we got a surprise from one of our amazing members! She works at Francesca's in the mall and decided to be super awesome and get us necklaces!!! She looked us up on Facebook to find out our first names and then got us an "E" and "B" necklace.
MLC: Was yesterday! It was pretty good! We had some good trainings and discussion! I learned a TON to help our investigators so hopefully we will be able to use it this week!
Something super awesome that I was reminded of this week was the power of the Holy Ghost in Conversion! I was reminded that when we teach people we can only say so much and do so much to help them! But when the Holy Ghost is in the mix, that's when the true change and conversion happens! Elder Bednar said at a training that we can "bring the truth unto the hearts of people, but only the Spirit can bring it INTO their hearts." Love it! Its so true! So for you all, remember the the Holy Ghost is such an important part of your life! Seek to have it with you all the time so it can teach you the things God wants you to know at this time!
Love you all! Have a great week!
