We have been working really hard and teaching lots of people, less actives, members and investigators. We have been finding some really cool people to teach.
We made a family mission plan outline for our members. We want our members to make a plan for how they are going to do missionary work each month, and then to set specific goals and evaluate their efforts at the end of every month. We know that as members reach out and invite their friends to learn about the gospel, God is going to bless them with specific people in their lives who are ready for the gospel.
A common theme this week for our less actives and investigators has been lack of confidence. Many of them are struggling with feeling that they are of worth, and feeling that they can't succeed in anything. We are trying to help them to recognize their many talents and to see that in God's eyes they are a child of God, and they are a princess.
We have also been reading the Book of Mormon in English with many of our members and investigators to help them learn english. The Book of Mormon is a powerful resource to help someone learn a language. And I love those lessons, because they focus so hard on a few verses, they always receive revelation while we are reading with them. It is the best!
We have been working on learning to snap our fingers spanish style. They make their fingers loose and kinda just wave their arm around. Sometimes I feel so dumb when we are practicing, but when we make a sound, it is really exciting.
And , we finally had investigators come to church. It was so exciting. We had 4 investigators at church, and 5 less actives, and 1 potential investigator. The joy that comes when you see poeple you love come unto Christ is so good! :D :D :D
