We got to watch Meet the Mormons and it was amazing I loved it. If you didn't get a chance to see it I would highly encourage it.
We had two appointments fall through which was upsetting but we ended up tracking and finding a new investigator. Its funny how the Lord works.
We had a trade off lesson with another set of Elders. Their investigator was wanting to go to the singles ward so we picked her up and are starting to teach her.
We had weekly planning and institute
We had district meeting and an appointment that day and the rest of the day we spent tracking.
We went invited one of the priests from a neighboring ward who wanted to go out with us to a couple of lessons. We went to one house looking for this families son and come to find out he is actually on a mission. He comes home. We talked with his family for a little bit.
We had fast and testimony meeting. Our new investigator came and she said she really liked it.
This week was a very difficult week and there were some quotes that I would like to share with you.
"Allow my individual will to be swallowed up in the will of the father. Strong faith in the savior is submissively accepting his will and timing in our lives even if the outcome it not what we hoped for or wanted. During difficult experiences character is built, hearts are purified, and souls are enlarged as individuals gain experiences and spiritual tutoring" - David A Bednar
"no one cares how much you know until they know how much you care"
"oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive"
"families that pray together stay together"
The best thing we can do is stand up for what we believe in even if the world thinks other wise. Don't let the people around you change who you are and what you want. Trust that Heavenly Father will watch over you. Put your full effort into him and his gospel and he will bless you. The blessings might not come when you think but remember that Heavenly Father blesses us in his time frame.
I hope you all have a great week.
