So this week Sister Black and i were called to be Sister Training Leaders, which means we are in charge of doing trainings and taking care of our zone with the Zone leaders I am so excited and honored to be in a leadership position for our zone!
This past week we met with President and he told us he wants us to change the PVC a little so we are working on putting all new videos on the app that are more in line with the Preach My Gospel handbook lessons I think it will be a great change for the PVC but it will also be a ton of work!
So we sent in the final order for our new Sabbath Day display so we should be getting that some time this week! Yay!
So our super solid investigator, Maureen, went to Florida this week so we didnt get to meet with her but we sent her the restoration video to watch and she loved it! Also i told her about my postcard collection and she totally sent me some postcards!!!
Sowas busy day! We had a bunch of events so we went on splits so we could go to them all! I went with Sister Holt to a baptism in Brockton it was so good! It was a baptism for a woman who married a return missionary they just looked so happy together! Also we asked the elders there to put the display cases in a classroom so they were out of the way and of course they picked the one classroom that the locks had just been changed and no one had the key to! Lets just say it was a good thing someone there knew how to pick a lock....
Next we headed off to WESTERLY RI! Back to my greenie area for the open house of their new building! Oh my it was soo good to be back it felt like i never left! The building looks amazing its crazy to think that sister williams and i were there cleaning out all the cobwebs and scraping the dust off the windows and now it looks like a real church building! I also got to see most of the members and investigators i worked with! Oh also Cate Christensen's cousins were there! apparently her cousin was the first sister missionary in Westerly pretty neat so of course i took a pic with them!
So we went to our neighbor's house this week they are the ones who invited us to their "home group"which is basically just their church's version of FHE, they sing and pray together and we go sometimes its pretty fun so we asked if we could show one of our videos to them about some one who found God, they really liked the video but didnt want us to show it to the group because they think we will take away their members... they asked more about what we believe and we got into a big discussion about the differences in belief, and it turned into a little bit of a bible bash, i left feeling pretty upset and frustrated that they tried to discredit the core of our believes (BOM, Joseph Smith, Godhead) a few days later on our exchanges sister Holt asked me if i went home today what would i take away from my mission, I realized one of the most important things i have learned is that when it really comes down to it we need to have a conversion to our Savior Jesus Christ, this church is amazing and i do believe it is Christ's church restored to the earth but as Joseph Smith said
“The fundamental principles of our religion are the testimony of the Apostles and Prophets, concerning Jesus Christ, that He died, was buried, and rose again the third day, and ascended into heaven; and all other things which pertain to our religion are only appendages to it."
