Busy Schedules December 7, 2015

Wow was this week jammed packed with meetings. So Monday we had p-day and played a lot of basketball. Monday night we had family home evening with a recent convert. Tuesday we actually had time to work. We were able to meet with one of our investigators and teach her about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. On Tuesday we had to meet with one of the high councilman from the stake. We talked with him about our monthly actual as a stake with missionary work. We discussed how we can get all the wards on board. Then Wednesday we had Mission Leadership Council with all the zone leaders and Sister Training Leaders. That was a great meeting. We talked a lot about making sure we resolve people's lame excuses for not coming to church. After MLC we had to plan for our zone training meeting on Friday. We also had to re meet with the high councilman to finish the meeting from the night before. We also met with our district leaders to tell them about MLC and how we can help the districts in the zone. Thursday we had weekly planning and meeting with two of our investigators. Friday we had Zone training meeting. It went really well. Hopefully it inspired our missionaries to push harder and #GIVEAGIFT to the savior. Friday night we went and helped at the Christmas Creche which is a event held by the church for the community. They have over like 200 nativity sets and choirs form around the area come and perform at different hours of the day. It is so cool. We helped with that. Saturday we attended another baptism that someone in our zone had. We also were able to tract and find more new investigators. Sunday we attended our ward and the YSA ward because we cover that area as well. While at the YSA ward someone brought a friend so of course right after church we set him aside and taught him the restoration and set him with a baptismal date. I loved having a really busy week though because it goes by quick and feels super successful. 

ALMA 17:9-10

9 And it came to pass that they journeyed many days in the wilderness, and they fasted much and prayed much that the Lord would grant unto them a portion of his Spirit to go with them, and abide with them, that they might be an instrument in the hands of God to bring, if it were possible, their brethren, the Lamanites, to the knowledge of the truth, to the knowledge of the baseness of the traditions of their fathers, which were not correct.

 10 And it came to pass that the Lord did visit them with his Spirit, and said unto them: Be comforted. And they were comforted.

This is my new favorite scripture. It helps me ask myself. Am i offering up much prayer and fasting? Am i being an instrument in the hands of God? If so its a promise that i will have the spirit and i will be able to be comforted. How much comfort that brings to me. Hopefully we all are doing all that we can on our part to place ourselves in a path in which we are able to align our will with the fathers. 

Here is a great video about the savior. Please watch it and share it on social media. 

​First picture is a picture of our zone at ZTM. the one in the front. His name is Elder Tasi. He is from New Zealand. He is so cool. The second picture was taken at the local community college. I thought it was cool how the signs light up at night. 

Hope you all have a great week. 

-Elder Loertscher
