Last week was nothing more then a bunch of trainings, madness, and occasionally, teaching lessons. We taught the mission leaders conference, and also taught the district leaders in their own conference. We are focusing on the area book, which is a giant folder containing the teaching information about all the investigators in the area. Some people don't update it, and that is a big issue if they don't. Well, we found out that a lot of missionaries are not. Patay. lots of work to do helping the missionaries increase their work and stride. We'll figure it out.... Eventually 😂
So this week, We visited brother J. He's a new investigator, and wants to be baptized. he says it's because he came to play basketball at the church, and he felt peace in his heart. We taught him the word of wisdom, and he said that he isn't following it, but he will starting right now. complete goosebumps. he's our most progressing investigator. We also visited sister J, who is married to an active member. We extended a baptismal date of December 23, and she burst into tears. She said that her daughter, also a member, has been trying for a long time to get her baptized, and she always recommends that her mom gets baptized December 23! We never knew that, we barely know the family. But Heavenly Father knows her, and extended that information to us through the spirit. That can't be explained any other way. we are aiming for a White Christmas.
Being happy is pretty easy. President Argana asked me into his office, and then had a quick interview with me. He counseled me on comparing myself to others, which I do. I won't say the exact things he said, but I do know that, once again, that information was not from him. It was from the Lord, who told President Argana so he could help me. it was a very special week.
This week, we travel all over the place for interviews, and spend the weekend in Sogod, in the southern part of the mission. Wish me luck there. I haven't yet received the turkey recipe, is it possible to send that next week so that president Argana can buy the things we need? thank you so much
