This week has been great. To start it off, Monday we had a last minute baptism of a "Child of Record" Which means that his parents are 8 and that he needed to be baptized. It was a beautiful service. A few members in our ward and my comp wanted to sing a hymn in english so we sang "I Need Thee Every Hour" and even though no one understood, the Spirit did the talking. It was great!
Then Wednesday we had a lesson with an inv called Noemi. She is super positive and has a baptism date. Well this lesson we were teaching about the Book of Mormon and her dad decided to "talk" with us too. Well her dad is also a pastor of his own church and basically his "talk" turned into 30 min attack on us and our church. So that was fun.... I had so many scriptures to prove him wrong, but I just sat there quietly and honestly a little heart broken that someone would say so many terrible things about the church. But we didnt fight back, and when we finally finished, we just thanked him for the comments and returned to the lesson with Noemi. The good news is that the lesson with her went well!
On Friday we had a Multi Zone Conference and it was AMAZING!! I really learned a lot about how to better my teaching and contactings. One thing that is hard here is that everyone seems to agree with our message, which basically means is that they dont understand. Becasue when we teach about the Book of Mormon, they easily accept it was the word of God becasue it wtalks about him.... Which even though it sounds like a blessing, its actually really hard becasue they dont understand really what it is. So we learnedd how we can help people recognize that our message is different from what their church believes. It was so great! ANd we also got to see a little bit of the movie "Meet the Mormons!" It was amazing!!!!
Today for pday we got to have out fun pday and we played volleyball and barbaqued as a zone. it was so fun!
Love you guys and have a great week!
