|Me and Elder Jonesssss ahhaha|
I can't believe that I have already hit my halfway mark in the MTC. Pretty soon we are going to be the District leaving. Our companionship has been given the opportunity to be the Zone Leaders of our Branch. It is always a humbling experience to be in leadership positions in the church. Being a Zone Leader doesn't put us above anyone else, we just have a few more responsibilities to make sure that the Zone is doing well. I am so grateful for this opportunity that I have to serve our Zone and provide love and care for them.
Spanish is really coming along. Our branch set a goal to speak no english all Friday and we did it. Such a blessing from the Lord. We had some amazing lessons on how to teach people. People say that the spirit is the teacher, that is 100% true, but you have to allow the spirit to teach. You also need to find the needs of the investigator and the only way to do this is to ask inspired questions and allow there to be silence. Silence is when the spirit tells you what to say but more importantly testifies to the investigator of the truthfulness of the things being taught. I love love LOVE the missionary work. It isn't easy at all, but that's what makes me love it so much. I love that I get to wake up each day and have a hard day, it makes me stronger as a person and a missionary. I try each day to be a REAL missionary. I would invite each of you to get down on your knees and offer up a prayer to the Lord and just thank him for everything that you have. The Lord wants to hear from you, He wants to know how you are doing. Prayer is a way we can speak with Him. I love you all and pray for you each and every day. Have a wonderful week!!
P.S. thank you so much to my sister Meghan for the Valentines day package!! It was SWEET!!!!! Thank you to all those who send Dear Elders and E-mails.
