So, just getting right on to business - My new companion is the Hermana Calderón from Argentina! She is AMAZING. She has hit the ground running (sprinting, I might say), and we are ready for a few cambios of miracles.
|This is going to be such a good few transfers :)|
Highlights from this week:
Bueno, #1, picking up my new companion :)
#2, we took our convert Margot to the temple! Her husband who is not a member and her son who is less active both accompanied us. Her husband and son stayed outside with us and had a lesson while Margot was inside participating in the ordinances. The Spirit was so strong :) We have seen real progress in them since that day!
#3, Interviews with President! President asked me to remind him how many people I had trained - when I told him I had been consecutively training since June, he couldn't believe it! With the whole mission President train, he didn't know that I had already been training before he got here. He just reminded me how much Heavenly Father trusts me. Sometimes I need that reminder. Heavenly Father loves and trusts all of His missionaries SO so much. I can feel it!
#4, On Sunday, President came to visit our Ward Council! (talk about pressure....... I thought the Bishop was going to pee his pants for the first half of the meeting). But, it went amazingly. President McGinn told me afterward that our Ward Council was a model Council. He asked me how we got the members to work so well with us. I told him that we just worked hard, were obedient, and invited them to be a part of the work. Once they started doing visits with us, seeing the investigators that we found and helped progress.... they started taking their own initiative. It was a process, and still is, but now we have CONVERTED leaders. That is what this gospel is all about.
We are pretty stoked for the World-Wide Missionary Meeting that will be happening on Wednesday. Your missionaries at home should be, too!
The doctrine is true!
