Yes I’m leaving Queenstown!!! I’m happy but sad because I am seriously going to miss some of the recent converts and families here!!!! I told them all i would come back and then laughed after. I hope I can some day.
Investigator lessons, ummm, its like 15 a week and then maybe another 15 with RC, LA, and members so i would say around 30ish lessons a week.
Yes, I gave my testimony in xosha in church yesterday. OH man let me tell you it was.... ok i really had to study hard to get down words but the ward loved it. i had to speak slow cause it just takes me forever to process and think what im going to say but its not that hard to speak it. i don’t really have a hard time with the clicks anymore. Everyone came up to me and was proud of me for trying haha.
I was thinking this week actually of mowing our lawn back home and missed it. i was thinking and hoping to be able to when i get home next year haha, think i could in October? Leave it really long for like 3 weeks and ill come and mow it for the last time!
Sad i have to say goodbye to Elder Lane tomorrow. i don’t think i will get to serve around him but i will see him at least one more time i know that! I forgot to say where I’m going... my new comp is Elder Greengrass from England. He has been out for about 15 months and I’m going to East London 2nd ward, which is also a good area so I’m excited!
I’m really excited for conference. I was reading a talk in the liahona (Do you know what that is? It’s just like the ensign but for all age groups lol) but it was talking about conference and how we should go prepared with a question and/or a Christlike attribute we can work on. So i got a few questions! One being, how or where in my life do i need to repent, kinda just looking for something that is rebuking me haha but hey whom the Lord loveth he chaseneth!
I had a pretty cool Spiritual Experience this week. Went on exchanges with Elder Tshwane (Elder Lanes Trainer) and he is such a great missionary. Anyways, we were going into the lesson to a lady and Elder Tshwane was telling me her situation... Roman Catholic, been investigating church for a while and really enjoys it, loves the book of mormon, always takes notes on the liahona. Yo she’s awesome! i just wondered why she hadn’t been baptized yet. Anyways when you are on exchanges you feel like you can be a little bit more blunt than normal cause your only really seeing them for one time so i was just straight up with her. I asked why she wasn’t baptized and all these things and then we decided to kneel down right there and have her pray and ask if Joseph Smith was a true prophet. Man i have never heard such a sincere pray in my life! During the prayer, I’m praying myself have her discern the Spirit! The Spirit was definitely present!. I don’t know what it is but the hardest thing to do is to help investigators recognize the Spirit! because you can’t just tell them oh this is the Spirit you have to let them decide for themselves! but she sadly said she didn’t know. I don’t know what will happen with her but i was happy for that experience!
