The week went well, and we had some good experiences one good experience that we had this week was during a lesson. We have been trying to find someone to teach for a long time because this area is so hard with even making new investigators.
So, we decided to get the members list and work with less actives. We went to this less active's house and the person the answered the door was a 19 or 20-year-old girl that told us that the person on the members list had moved. But we talked to her and asked to leave a message. The message was actually super good, we all felt the spirit and then when we asked her how she was feeling, she explained to us that she was feeling peace and relieved of some stuff. We then asked her "what does this mean to you" and she responded, "That this message is true". It was a great message but the part that stuck out to me the most was the way that we found her, it was with the intent to help a less active... To me the Lord blesses when we help others and try to bring the lost sheep back to the fold. We found someone with the intent to reactivate another. It was the perfect way that the Lord could help us find someone that was ready to hear His message.
My companion and I had been feeling strongly about working with the less actives earlier. We knew that baptism is the focus like president has told us, but we had been feeling it.
I don’t believe that Nephi knew had to build a ship, but when he went to the Lord, the Lord instructed him, and he didn’t only instruct him how to build a ship but the way that the Lord wanted him to do it.
This week I had a strong impression to do something new in the zone. Every week we will all study together during the week as a zone, one attribute of Christ, and then during our district meeting we will invite someone to share an experience that they had with that attribute. This week to start out this new idea we chose humility. I’ve been praying every day and trying to understand humility better.
I am heartbroken that Aiko has died, and she has been a member of our family since i could remember. But it was the right thing to do...Things happen in our life that we can't control and sometimes the Lord’s will isn’t what we want. But I feel a peace as I let the Lord's will take its course.
