Week 77


Another great week in the service of the Lord.

This week we were able to have a few very interesting lessons. We received a referral for an investigator this week and went to go contact it, but when we showed up it turned out to be the address of some baptist school or something. We knocked on the door on Thursday, found the person we were looking for, and set up an appointment for the next day. Then we showed up for our appointment and it turned into a discussion between us and 5 other baptist students. They were curious about our doctrine of the plan of salvation and had some sort of project for their school to talk with us and find out what we believe. It was a really interesting visit, and one of the things that I learned is that all of the doctrines from the other churches are based on their own interpretations of the Bible and what we teach is more than just the Bible, but the fullness of the gospel in all scripture, old and new.

We also set up a different appointment with Inma and her family. She's been having some difficulties feeling forced to get married even though she really doesn't want to, so with the advice of our mission president, we went to the temple with them to do a lesson in the gardens of the temple. We talked about marriage, families, baptism, and especially the temple ordinance of sealing. It was amazing how strong they were able to feel the Spirit there and how it testified of the possibility of eternal families.
Inma and her daughters: Lucia, Ainara, and Maider

Also on Sunday we had a stake missionary fireside in our own stake, where we got to perform a few more numbers. We played an arrangement of Silent Night on saxophone:
 But we also did a really cool number that had a SATB quartet with a piano and violin:
It all turned out amazing!

Well another week more in the mission, and loving almost every minute of it. haha
But I am so gratefull for all of the things that I have learned and am still learning here with the help of the Lord.
