The blessings flow...

This week was incredible! It was such a fast week, which is both good and bad. We had a lot of meetings this week. Tuesday was such a spiritual, stressful day. That morning we had zone conference. We were giving a training on working with members. The sister training leader for our area lead us in perfectly with her trading she gave on helping people keep commitments. It helped us with ours because we were trying to help the missionaries in their efforts to get referrals from the members. Commitments are such a huge part of that because if people sent challenged to do something, they usually don't do it. I was able to learn allot that zone conference. Then after we had to head up to the top of our area so we could go teach bill. We had to go alone because our team up could not come. But we went and read 3 Nephi 11 with him. He liked it and enjoys the things that are taught, we just have to get him to take a leap of faith. Than after that lesson we had to head back down to where we had zone conference so we could go to a stake mission leadership training done by the stake presidency. We thought we were going to have to present something so we had planned a presentation, but we got lucky and we dint have to.

The rest of the week went great as well. On Thursday we went around meeting less actives and following up with people. We taught our investigator named Regina for the second time. She also commuted to be baptized on the 15th of August! She is so excited to be baptized. She loves the Book of Mormon SO much. She reads like 6 chapters each day, she said she knows that it is true and that Joseph Smith is a prophet. The members have also just been awesome with her. They have just taken her under their wing and just helping her along. This has been such a miracle. It is a testimony that if you do all you can to bring to pass good, though it may take longer than you hoped for. You can know for sure that the blessings will come eventually. 

Friday we had our mission leadership council. It was super good! That has been the blessing of being a ZL. Being able to go to those meetings and learning from the mission president and the people he invites to come and teach us. This time he invited the former mission president of the California Santa Rosa mission. He and his wife were there to help teach us about the iPads. They were the first mission in the world to revive them. They told us about the success and failure they had as a mission. President Alba gave a training about leadership and how our tiny influence can change everything about this mission. It made me think allot about life and how our tiny influence can change others lives completely. Either for good or evil.

I can't even try to explain all the miracles and blessings the lord pours out on us every week. But I can testify that this is the Lords work and he controls it. I'm grateful I still have time to be a part of it full time.

Con Mucho Amor
