Hello my wonderful family and friends!!!
First of all - it was so crazy busy, I get tired just thinking about it. Haha but being busy is awesome because no time to be tired and just time to be happy (that was partially facetious, because I definitely am tired, but s'all goods, s'all goods).
We are changing the way we do some things in the immigration process for our missionaries which creates a lot of work and confusion for Elder Johnson and I but I am happy to say I think we came out on top!
We were also busy with Zone Conference and preparation for it. It was fantastic as always to get to meet together and learn from President Rowley and all the other wonderful missionaries. Lots of great things to learn and realizing I still have so far to go and not enough time to do it all! Just will have to work harder :)
Our week ended just GREAT! We ended up having 9 simpatisans come to church, which is more than I've ever had come in a week before. It was so great to be able to share in the Spirit with so man wonderful people that I love! I think they all really enjoyed it! Elder Jensen (our office mission couple Elder whom I dearly love) gave a great talk which one of the brothers translated for him. The Spirit was so strong. He spoke of God and Christ and Propehts, especially about Thomas S Monson. We also got to watch President Monson's funeral, so that was special.
Just having a great time and loving life! Just trying to become better and more like Jesus Christ.
One cool experience we had. We had some things fall through on Saturday so we started going somewhere with a kind of shaky idea of what we were doing. As we were headed there we realized that we were close to an inactive member's house and we felt we should go there instead, so we did. and the next day he and his non-member wife came to church. Definitely the Spirit guiding us to what we needed to do! Just cool for me :)
I love this work! I feel so great as I can sincerely say to people "I'm not here to add numbers to my church or get money or for my glory, but I am here because I know God loves you and I want to help you return to Him." This is not my work - this is His work. He loves His children. I love that knowledge. I love how it changes the way I live and look at others around me.
I love you all. I hope you have an amazing week. Maju terus!
