Jan 30, 2017

I have witnessed God's hand this week for sure. I came to the conclusion that I have no idea what to do and that I am weak on my own. So we really started to rely on God and got ourselves out of the way. And it has been amazing! 

We have seen many small miracles with our prayers being answered like finding a projector or someone opening a locked door. But also with the work of salvation. This week He has changed the heart of one our most progressing investigators. He has been speaking to him and leading him to what he needs. He accepted to be baptized next month. Heavenly Father has also led us to many people who are ready to hear the gospel! We had the prompting to head to the church one night and found a family playing basketball! We taught them the restoration the next day.

1 Nephi 9:6 But the Lord knoweth all things from the beginning; wherefore, he prepareth a way to accomplish all his works among the children of men; for behold, he hath all power unto the fulfilling of all his words. And thus it is. Amen

Wednesday was a pretty historic day for missionaries! It was another worldwide missionary training broadcast. It was the Missionary Executive Council. Elders Oaks, Bednar, and Anderson. Elder Nielson from the 70. Bishop Waddell from the presiding Bishopric, Bonnie Oscarson and Steve Allen. It was a cool setting. They sat around their table and discussed things from last year's broadcast. Then they made some policy changes! They changed the missionary daily schedule. It's so we can exercise our agency better and focus on our purpose which is to Teach Repentance and Baptize Converts. They saw a lot of missionaries were stressed. So the morning Schedule is pretty cool. We used to have set times to exercise get ready personal study and companion study. from 6:30-10. But now from 6:30-10, we have our choice when to exercise plan personal study and get ready! We can adapt it to our schedule. Some other things changed and it was cool.
