Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also has become my salvation.

Sept 8, 2014

this week was a week of boldness and power for me and my companion. It all started this last Tuesday when I was on exchange. we went to one of our members house who served here several years ago. We went over there with just the intent to eat dinner , but we ended up leaving with more than just full belly's. 

this members name is maluin ramirez. He served here as a missionary several years ago and was very successful. So when we were eating dinner with him we asked him if he could share with us some of the things that helped him out in his mission because maybe they would help us. He started by sharing several scriptures in the book of Mormon and the bible. I do not remember all the scriptures because i had nothing to write them down with but they were very good scriptures. But any way he went on to tell us how in this work we need to be bold in all that we do. We need to bear testimony about everything we know to be true as we preach it, we need to deliver these things with out hesitation and with out fear. Because this is salvation we are trying to present to these people, we are trying to invite them to come unto Christ. we can not take these things lightly. We above all other things must teach with the spirit so that the hearts of the people can be touched and they can come unto Christ through baptism. He taught us how we need to be inviting every person after they have felt the spirit to be baptized. and if they reject to be baptized or to change to just end the contact or lesson or what ever we are doing and just leave. Because they are not ready to except the gospel. I thought it seemed harsh but he brought up the point that God has prepared people to listen and we should not be wasting time on those that don't want to do anything. we also learned that we need to pray for our area in every single prayer we say and invite the members to do it as well. because as he said if we have all these prayers that are trying to bless the work, how could God not answer them?

So this week me and my companion tried these things in our contacting and lesson teaching. I have never been such an effective teacher as i was this week. we truly taught with power and with boldness and we really taught with the spirit to help these people to understand Christ and that we are true representatives of him. we invited 5 people to be baptized this week and in almost every contact we did we brought up that we are here to help them come unto Christ through baptism. It has been a very awesome experience and ii really like knocking doors now because i feel like we are really doing what we are suppose to and telling these truths about Jesus and that his church has been restored.
