We've had a some sweet lessons with some recent converts.. one of the lessons was about callings and trying to magnify them, which was awesome!
I learned pretty quickly on the mission that the more I teach a principle of the gospel the more I learn for myself about the truthfulness of that principle! We connected it with her calling in the church which is not a big one.. she is just the secretary for the gospel principles class, but we tied it into that and then the spirit reminded me about callings that we have been given even before this earth was.. and she is a mother, so the spirit was able to help me tie her being a mother as a calling from god that she should treat it that way.. not saying she is a horrible mother but that we are all given responsibility here on earth and we are expected to magnify them! but it was great to be able to feel the spirit fill the room teach all of us there!
We also had stake conference this past week.. which was great as well! All the talks were fantastic and they were definitely prompted and guided by the spirit of The Lord! of course there was a talk on tithing ( like all stake conferences have ) but this one was so powerful and moving! They talked about that is never about the money, and how being a worthy temple recommend holder is always a man who is a full tithe payer.
We had tremendous talks on the youth and about forgiveness about serving and caring for one another! it just was great! Its funny though because while we went to stake conference.. which is in Meadow Ridge.. (no where near our area ) I got a couple of phone calls from some less actives.. and guess where they were? At the chapel in Fish Hoek! yeah that's right the only Sunday they wanna come to church, and we are at stake conference some where far away.. I just remember saying to myself "you gotta be kidding me" haha but its all good there are more Sundays this month and the next for them to keep on coming! haha
Hope you all have a great week!!
