Things have been going great here in Rialto. This week was a little faster than last week, but a little slower than normal. We picked up 5 new investigators, but were unable to have any lessons with existing investigators. We do a great job at planning and confirming lessons....but it seems like its becoming a habit for them to cancel on us. Oh well!
We had a lesson with a new investigator named Daisy. She is the COOLEST person ever! I am so excited to work with her. She seems like she sincerely wants to know what to do with her life. She has such great potential!!!!!
We also got to have a lesson with the AWESOME familia Arcos! Love them too! We challenged them to start reading the Book of Mormon as a family! I love talking about the Book of Mormon. There are so many great promises that prophets and apostles have given us! I also love the idea that not only is Authority one thing that sets us apart from all other churches....the Holy Ghost is something else. No matter what we as missionaries can say, the Holy Ghost is the ultimate teacher, and will testify that the this church is the only true church. What i have studied about the Holy Ghost has truly changed my vision of what a testimony is. We have been taught that the Holy Ghost provides us with such a firm confirmation of truth that we CANNOT be separated from the knowledge that we gain from him. I think it is interesting however that when we refer to "knowing" something we ALWAYS indirectly or directly relate it with "feeling".....so I love the idea that our testimonies come (little by little first off....) but also they also follow the same pattern of faith it takes to gain a testimony. We may not know exactly why we know....but we just know!!!!! Sorry if that was confusing.....
I love this gospel! Missionary Work isn't easy...but it is simple....live the Gospel of Jesus Christ (that covers everything.....loving others, being an example, etc.)
Have a great week everyone!!!!!!!!!!
