What a week...Actually it was just like all the other ones haha
Last week of transfer!! Again im sure ill stay in this area because my Companion goes home next month soo We've been soo tired this week, but still working.
Update: We've been teaching this man, Bro Rockson. He has a great family that we've also been teaching. So we've been working with him for about 2 months now. On and off lessons. But he says hes really looking to change his life style. Hes has a problem with Alcohol, so this week in our lessons we taught the Word of Wisdom to him and have been helping him stop drinking. ITS SOO HARD!! i have no idea how to help him stop drinking except to teach him the importance of the commandment and the blessing that come along with it! I was amazed after the lesson and after testifying of the truthfulness of the word of wisdom and the blessing we promised him that he said he knows he needs to give up drinking and we should give him a few weeks and he'd give it up.
Soo the fights not done, we still have a long way to go in helping him progress towards baptism.
It was awesome tho, He came to church on sunday and his family also..Well they actually showed up after church ended, but they still made it over to see bishop which we were happy about!
We're still trying to help Divya to get baptized. He problem is shes living with a guy and they arent legally married yet so either they need to split up and he need to move out or they get married.. Problem is she doesnt want to get married, but she enjoys his company. soo we've been helping her know how she can pray and seek the guidance of our Heavenly Father in what she should do.
I was able to share my testimony this week in Fast and Testimony meeting and i chose to use a scripture from The Book of Mormon, Ether 12:27
And if men come unto me I will show unto them theirweakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humblethemselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weakthings become strong unto them.
We all have weaknesses, They come in different shapes and sizes. But why are they given to us..Because our purpose in life is to progress. So we are given weaknesses that we can grow. Both Physically and spiritually. And for us to overcome our weaknesses we must have 3 things line into place. WE must Come unto him! we have a strong desire to change or correct our weakness. 2. We must be humble and willing to do the will or the Lord. 3. We use the Atonement of Jesus Christ in helping us over come that weakness. okay 4 things..We have faith in him!! having faith that we can over come that weakness with the help of our Father in Heaven.
Strive each day of 2017 to progress. dont go backwards. Something that has helped me is "take it one day at a time" When you start looking forward in the future to much you'll get over excited and have a hard time focusing on the needs of NOW..
Hope everyone has a great week!!
