May 4, 2015

This week was awesome, as always :)

We taught Anderson and Giselle about the Word of Wisdom and the Law of
Chastity... which they BOTH have problems with BOTH of these
commandments.. ahha and it kinda freaking Giselle out so FOR NOW she
won't be baptized Saturday but in the future, for sure :)

So this week. Saturday was rough. every. single. one of our
appointments fell through. So it was about 6:00 and we had nothing to
do. So we pulled out the list of less actives and started trying to
contact the ones in our neighborhood but my goodness Saturday night is
the time for everyone to be ``taking a shower`` so needless to say, we
just took a good walk around the neighborhood for 3 hours.

BUT.... D&C 121:7 ``My (daughter), peace be unto thy soul; thine
adversity and thine afflictions shall be but a small moment;``

SO, Sunday after church a herd of young women came up and said they
wanted to visit another young woman in the ward that hasn't been
coming to church so they asked what day we could go, so I opened up my
little planner to see and WE HAD ALREADY PLANNED TO GO THERE ON
SUNDAY!! haha so I said ``oh! today!!`` so at 5 us and our little herd
of young women walked forever to her house and it was the most
spiritual lesson ever! we talked about the talk ``stay in the boat``
and then had a mini testimony meeting.

THEN we went to visit with Anderson and Giselle but Giselle wasn't
home. so we talked to Anderson about all of his questions and
everything and he was saying how much he wants to change and how much
he loves going to church and hearing our messages but then he started
talking about how every time he goes to pray he can't because he's
scared to talk to God and that even with us, sometimes he´s scared to
ask us questions

I remembered the story about my great grandpas baptism, the day of his
baptism he was too scared to enter the water and wasn't baptized, then
the missionaries were transferred and new ones came to his area and
remarked his baptism, but again he was too scared to enter the water,
so one of the elders walked up to him and commanded Satan to leave and
after that my great grandpa entered the water no problem.

so I shared the story with him and the scripture 2 timothy 1:7 ``For
God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love,
and of a sound mind.`` and we talked about how during church and our
messages he´s felt peace and love and that the feeling of fear to pray
and to ask questions are from the devil because the devil is trying to
stop him from making this change in his life. IT WAS THE BEST LESSON

Ah. I love being a missionary.

Thanks for all of your love and support!!
