What a week. I have to start out by saying that I haven't seen what the sun looks like in a week. That really starts to put a hang on your days. Who knew your body needs the sun?! You all are probably thinking it's 24 hours of darkness...no. It's just foggy as can be and incredibly cloudy! :)
Hmmm. Well! We had a zone training this past week. The mission finally saw the Missionary Broadcast and some sisters gave a training on how to use Social Media in missionary work. No, that doesn't mean we have Facebook access. I got excited too but....it's how we teach the YSA to use Facebook as a tool to bring others to come unto Christ! Still good! :) I hope everyone got everything out of it.
Apparently there is a strain of the Flu that came out of Australia that's been all over Denmark. That's the flu that I had. A ton of missionaries have that right now! It's kinda a shame. It's funny to see one bite the dust though. It's sad too because it last like 8 days!
We've been working a lot with young adults and college students. We've been continuing to knock on college dorms and stuff and that's still been going well. We've given out quite the amount of copies of the Book of Mormon. We've racked up a lot of referrals from them as well. It's actually an effective way to find! No new investigators found this week, so that's a shame. We're hoping to revisit with some of the previously found potentials to see if we can spark some new investigators. I see a lot of potential with it. It just takes one, then all their friends come with them!
This scripture in 2 Nephi 32, says a lot. It's, "Angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore, they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do." This is the testimony and witness of Nephi. Angels speak by way of the Holy Ghost. We feel that Holy Ghost by reading the scriptures, going to church, etc. The simple answers we all give. But, if we're doing these things, seeking after direction, the Holy Spirit will be able to give us the direction we need. Angels do exist and will speak to us by way of the Holy Spirit!
I got some pics from MLC, the baptism last week and zone training that I'll attach.
Have a good week!!! I love you!
