Week 81 - Exchanges, Exchanges...

I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to serve with Elder Porter and Elder Broadbent!! I have learned a lot from them and continue to love serve the Lord more and more everyday!! They are great examples to me and help me strive to be the best I can be!

So this week has been a lot of shifting, packing suitcases, and teaching the gospel which all and all is just what every missionary wants!! :)

On Monday we had P-day. 

Tuesday- Elder Porter and Elder Broadbent had to prepare for Zone training Meeting so I went on exchanges with Elder Bowman and Elder Devenport in the 2nd North area. They are two very great disciples of Jesus Christ!!

Wednesday- We had Zone Training Meeting! We were trained by our Sister Training Leaders, Zone Leaders, and the Assistants to the President. I learned so many things I can improve on as a missionary, which I love! After Zone training meeting we went on exchanges with the Assistants. Elder Porter, Elder Cleverly, and I worked in the 4th ward area for the day! It was SO much fun!!! We had a couple great lessons, and even though one of them I had to teach by myself because the investigator only spoke Spanish, it was amazing!

Thursday- Elder Porter and Elder Broadbent went on exchanges with the North Elders, so I went on exchanges with the 2nd South Elders ( Elder Price and Elder Kircher)! Once again I learned so much from serving with them and was able to give them some advice to best help some of the people the are teaching. We also had the opportunity to find a child of our Heavenly Father who is very prepared and we taught him the restoration while sitting on the carpeted floor in his apartment.

Friday- We had weekly planning and had a wonderful dinner with the L Family, and then we had Noche de Hogar or family home evening for all of the Hispanic members in the 4th ward, which we do every Friday.

Saturday- The highlight was definitely finding D. He is a 20 year old guy who said when he opened the door started to shake a little bit because the whole week he had been praying to God for a sign because he had felt lost. We taught him the Restoration and I was able to relate some principle of the Restoration to wrestling, since he is a wrestler too!!! 

Sunday- We had got 6 inches of snow over night so church was canceled so we cleaned up our area books and went through our phone contacts.

I am once again so grateful for the prayers that are offered for all of the missionaries serving, because as one of them, I can feel the strength! I truly know this church is the true church, with a living prophet and apostles. As a servant of our Savior Jesus Christ I testify he loves us and wants us to put of the natural man and become like him. In doing so we can feel a sense of peace as we make our way closer back to our Heavenly Father's presence!!
