This past week has been really good. We were able to attend a lot meetings and it was great to have the privilege to be able to listen to Elder Arden, the Area President as well as President Beck, the general Young Men’s president.
Most of the meeting was a question and answer time. One piece of advice that President Beck gave to us was to keep a really good journal. He suggested that we put one lesson we’ve learned each day as well as the happiest moment of the day. He talked about how the lessons he wrote down in his journal helped him get his kids excited to serve and also gave him great perspective on how he grew throughout his mission.
One of the highlights of the week was that one of our investigators, Leo and his wife April, came to church! Leo works for a private resort and usually is on the side of the road trying to get customers. On our way to church we saw him outside and figured that they weren't coming, but then they showed up just in time for sacrament meeting!
One of the funny parts this week happened while we were teaching a new investigator how to use the Book of Mormon cross references. I opened up to a random page and showed him a verse... unfortunately I realized that the verse I had him read was 1 Nephi chapter 4:18 where it says.. “therefore I did obey the voice of the Spirit, and took Laban by the hair of the head, and I smote off his head with his own sword." Not the best first verse for an investigator to read. I just said we would explain that story next time...
I hope everyone has a good week!
