Happy Father's Day DAD! I love you so much and I am so grateful to have the best dad in the world. It's official, you're the best!
This week we were introduced to a new program in our mission. It's called a "personal mission plan". Each set of missionaries is introducing and going to use it with their members in their ward. So adding up the all the members in our mission and calculating the active ones, that is 10,400 members that are going to be working on this plan. It is really cool, a 4 step plan.
1. Brainstorm. make a list of everyone you know
2. select. prayerfully select 2-3 names
3. Act and invite. what you will do to help your friends know Jesus Christ better
4. Repeat. repeat the process with the same or different friends.
I am so excited for the miracles that we will see from the members as they reach out!
We are still working with J* and V*! We had a super cool lesson with them about the Book of Mormon. I love being able to testify of the truthfulness of the Book and how it can bless people's lives in so many ways! That family is going through some hard challenges right now with their dad and V* told us she probably isn't as interested anymore... That's okay though, because when J* get's baptized, she will no doubt feel the spirit. We took J* to the Mesa Temple visitors center last night and watched Joseph smith-the prophet of the Restoration. It was super cool! She brought a friend, L* who knew nothing about the church. Afterwards we talked about temples and they both expressed how they want to go in so badly! They said on the way home that being there felt like being Home and being in Heaven. It's amazing the special spirit there that makes us all long to be there and long to be closer to God.
We went on Exchanges this week, the new sister training leader in phoenix, Hermana L*, came to my area. it was fun and very helpful. I learned a lot about truly loving my investigators and members and companion. And being willing to sacrifice my selfish desires in order to show that Love.
We are working with this super cool Lady named S*! She is a hard working a faith filled mother of 6 kids. She has a ton of faith and really just wants to follow Jesus Christ. I am excited for her and pray that she will have a desire to progress in the gospel!
also something crazy- we came home for dinner one day and there were police everywhere in our apartment complex and 2 helicopters circling it! It was crazy! But don't worry, we are safe :) I love this work, I love Phoenix, I love the Savior. Have a wonderful week!
