So this week we had one of the best Zone Training Meetings I have ever had on my mission! It was all about the power of the spirit and on faith. I really learned so much about really on the Holy Ghost when teaching and how to teach by the needs of the people we are teaching. One thing our mission president had challenged us to do was to ask ourselves what would the Lord what me to say before we speak. All i can say is wow that has changed my teaching so much in just a few days. I love learning about how to follow the spirit, one thing that really stuck our to me was when President Roger said when teaching you not only have to trust yourself in knowing what to say but you have to trust the Lord and the Spirit with a full purpose of heart to be able to bring souls unto Christ. In Preach My Gospel chapter 4 it says, " You will succeed in your work (or as i put it Life) as you learn to receive and follow personal revelation." That is so true because as we receive personal revelation we can do Gods will and be able to fulfill all that Heavenly Father has in store for us as we are disciples of Jesus Christ. One of my favorite scriptures about favorite is also very similar to James 1:5 it is 2 Nephi" yea, I know that God will gice liberally to him that asketh. Yea, my God will give me, if I ask not amiss; therefore I will lift up my voice unto thee; yea, I will cry unto thee, my God, the rock of my righteousness. Behold, my voice shall forever ascend up unto thee, my rock and my everlasting God. Amen" I love this because though our personal revelation and though following the spirit we can be able to receive our answers to prayer ans we call upon God.
Any ways our investigators are doing great with this nasty cold weather it has been hard to see them but we are still in daily contact with them and that is the important part. The work is great! there really is nothing better then being able to serve the Lord with all your heart might mind and strength! Their are so many people here ready and prepared to here the message of the restored gospel. It is just sad because there really isn't enough time in our day to see and find them all.
I know that this Gospel is true and that as we pray and ask Heavenly Father with a full purpose of heart we will be know for ourselves the truthfulness of the Gospel!
