March 11, 2013

You described a youth activity, it sounds like the MTC and companion study. Every day we practice teach something. We practice the restoration, or a baptismal invite or what we will be teaching that day. The way you practice is the way you end up teaching. It is the same with any sport. We practice the skills over and over again so that under pressure we may remember and act well. 

Here is a miracle that happened this week. 
On Saturday night, one of our investigators, P, said she was too busy to come to church. We explained that if she were to put the Lord first, she would be blessed in all other aspects of her life, even temporally. She had mentioned previously that her phone charger was missing, so my inspired companion Sister Kraemer said, "In two minutes if we can find your phone charger, will you come to church with us tomorrow?" She nodded. I prayed so hard as I crawled on my hands and knees looking under, around and through everything. We found it! P  started getting her church clothes ready for the next day. As we had promised, if she put the Lord first, even with this small commitment to come to church, she would be blessed temporally; the Lord was bound and she was blessed. That scripture in D&C 82:10 is true. "I the Lord am bound when you do what I say, but when ye do not what I say, ye have no promise."

One of our investigators basically dropped us this week. She said she is happy with the church in which she is. She hasn't even come to our church yet! She's never been able to come. She was going to come yesterday but dropped us right before church. We decided we needed to go over there and talk to her about this decision. This is eternal salvation! It was really hard and very emotional. It was ripping my heart out. She knows the Book of Mormon is true and it is her husband that is holding her back. He is very close-minded. ahh! We will not stop trying though.

This week we found 2 new investigators. We had an AWESOME first lesson with them last night. J and her roommate M. They are both Christian. After we explained the Book of Mormon to them, M asked, "Why haven't I ever heard about this before?!" haha. Well, it is time.
