Literally I had like 6 moments this week when we were teaching and I thought "bah, I really want to talk about such and such scripture or thing, I hope I can before the subject changes" and then 5 SECONDS LATER, SISTER VERA SAID THAT EXACT THING THAT I WAS THINKING AND HOPING I COULD SAY. SO we were basically on our A-game this week in being able to both of us follow the Spirit in our lessons.
THIS WEEK WAS SO FUN!!!!!
Ok so on Tuesday, we gave the training on our zone meeting and it was awesome! I love teaching!! We talk about Love and Knowledge, and how these two these are SO ESSENCIAL in missionary work!! WE, has missionaries and people, have to get to know the savior, through our own conversion and repentence and development of our Faith. And THEN, we love the Savior and love all the knowledge we've aquired! And THEN, WE GOTTA HELP OTHER PEOPLE KNOW AND LOVE THE SAVIOR SO THEY CAN BE BAPTIZED AND GET THE KEY TO HEAVEN'S DOOR!
And then our zone leaders talk about the Title of Liberty and gave us all our own little White flag, title of liberty with the baptism symbol on it and it was adorable and i was like "aww so cute the elders sometimes like to do crafts and make cute things for the missionaries too"
We also had our first week of EXCHANGES with the other sisters, which was SUPER fun and also such a learning experience for the both of us!! Also my prayers were answered because I didnt get lost by myself in this área where i dont know where anything is :-) #blessin´s
Also, because we had two companionships working in the same área, and I was working closer to our apartment, me and the sister I was with also got home before Sister Vera and the sister she was with, so OBVIOUSLY we hid in the dark and scared them MWHAHHA I love scaring people
Ok so this week we were teaching these two girls about how importante it is to read the scriptures, and sister Vera gave them each a little slip of paper, and told them they had to write a final message to their Family, as if they were lost in the desert and knew they wouldnt survive, so they wrote little things like "love you guys, stay Strong" and whatever, and then then Sister Vera took them, and said that she was the mailman and that I was their families, waiting for these letters. And then, instead of delivering me the letters, SHE RIPPED UP THE PAPERS. And i was like "SISTER VERA WHAT THE HECK?????" And she was like "yeah you feel pretty bad because you'll never know what they wanted you to know, huh?" and then she said "PRETTY ,MUCH WE DO THAT TO OUR OWN FAMILY WHEN WE DONT READ THE SCRIPTURES" #BOMBA and it was super awesome hehe I love Sister Vera. and then she showed us that she ripped up another paper and pretended it was their letters and then gave me their letters and proved to the world shes not a horrible person :-)
SO, IN CONCLUSION, EVERYONE, DONT BE A JERK TO YOUR ANCESTORS AND READ THE SCRIPTURES
Ok also I wanted to share this talk with y'all, "That I might draw all men unto me" by Daler G. Renlund from this past April, so we can all remember that the closer we are to our heavenly father, the less we will feel entitled to his blessings and the more we will feel grateful for his grace :)
