Well hello and goodbye to another week!!
This week was pretty good! Really HOT but good.
Update on the week. Tuesday I went on an Exchange with another missionary in our Zone. Elder Mungisha from Uganda. It was okay haha he was an interesting guy but you gotta love all the missionaries! He’s actually going home in 2 weeks so it’s hard being a leader missionary trying to motivate a "dying" missionary. But we got through the day just fine.
This week we also had our first Zone training which I was in charge of giving some instruction to the whole zone!!! That’s about 20 missionaries plus a senior couple that is in our zone.
Soo my instruction was on finding people to teach. This is interesting because when I first came on mission I was so scared to talk with random people about the Gospel of Jesus Christ (still am somehow haha) but now it’s not too bad. I’m able to great people in their language and make a good conversion to make people laugh and be comfortable around us then we introduce the message so I was able to instruct the Zone about how they might be able to find more people to teach!
The next thing I instructed was about the Book of Mormon, Another testament of Jesus Christ and how we as missionaries should be able to teach skillfully out of this record about our lord and savior Jesus Christ. The message we share with people is Unique! It’s different! It’s that, God still Calls Prophets and speaks to them in these latter days! HE called Joseph Smith to be his prophet in the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to know a true prophet we must see their works! (Matthew 7:15-20) We (members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints) believe that Joseph Smith translated the Record of the Book of Mormon by The power of God through prophecy and revelation. This was one of his works that show he was a true prophet of God (see Mormon.org for more).
Soo it was a great opportunity to share my testimony to the other missionaries that I know the Book of Mormon Is truly another testament of Jesus Christ! For those who love our lord and savior, who love the Bible should also embrace the message the Book of Mormon has to offer!
Just a quick uplifting message from the Book of Mormon.
“And now...I beseech of thee that thou wilt hear my words and learn of me; For I do know that whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions, and shall be lifted up at the last day."
We’ll all have trials in our life!! No one can say otherwise. But remember those who put their trust in God know that he has a special purpose for each one of us as we are his children and he is our LOVING Heavenly Father!
Let us all "look unto Him in every thought, doubt not and fear not!"
I hope everyone has a great week and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
Thanks for all your support and love y’all send each week! It keeps me moving forward! Y’all are always in my Prayers!!
Till next time, God bless y’all!
