This week was just incredible! Incredibly hot and incredibly wonderful
as well. We saw plenty of miracles and had a lot of fun. Hermana
Wihongi is just the best companion ever! She is so funny and such a
hard worker, I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed missionary work as much
as I have this transfer. This week was kind of crazy, we had
intercambios with the hermanas from La Laguna and the ones from Santa
Cruz. They are incredible, i had the luck to be with Hermana Warner
who is one of the hardest workers I’ve ever met and then with Hermana
Christensen, who is Hermana Wihongis mission daughter! They both
taught me so much!
One of the cool moments of the week was meeting with Christopher. He
is a 70+ year old man from Ghana and honestly the first time we met I
didn’t see much potential. But we went back this week and he kept
thanking us for showing him the true church! He explained the whole
restoration and the priesthood. It was awesome. We were so surprised.
Yesterday Christopher came to church for the first time and we are so
excited to see where his progression goes. Moral: never judge a person
on the first lesson.
Sunday was great, as a ward for member attendance we finally got up to
76% it was amazing! We were just so excited every time one of our less
actives or friends walked through the door! The best part of Sunday
was Sammy though. For years missionaries have been working with Sammy,
he is from Sweden and he finally came to church. He has one the
strongest testimonies I’ve heard and we feel blessed to know him, but
more blessed to have seen him come to church.
Other great highlights to the week, was doing the Jesus poster on the
street, with the members! Contacting with the members is so much more
effective than contacting just as missionaries. It was so powerful and
we found so many more people through the testimonies of the members.
So. Go share your testimony!
This week I finished the four gospels in the bible and I love the
final chapter of John when the Lord tells peter to not worry about
Johns destiny or calling but to simply “feed my sheep.” We read in
21 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?
22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is
that to thee? follow thou me.
And so it is in our own lives. We don’t need to worry about what
brother jones is doing in his calling or what the Lords plan for
sister so and so is. We just need to focus on fulfilling what he Lord
has planned for us and follow him. That’s my invitation for you all,
to follow the Saviour!
You are all great and I hope you have an awesome week!
