They might not have a building for awhile but that is such a small thing them.. they just love the gospel and are grateful for whatever The Lord will bless them with at the time.
This week has definitely been better than last week! We are learning the area pretty fast thanks to the tender mercies of The Lord! As for my companion, he is doing well I think we have a better relationship now because of the situation we are in and because we already know each others strength and weaknesses. So its been nice! We actually have all of Zwide.. (I didn't even know there was a number system to Zwide hahaha but yeah we probably have all of Zwide) then.. but our areas super huge so i wouldnt doubt we have it all. but im loving it here in P.E its great to be back in the eastern cape :)
but this week we had a busy weekend! we first had zone conference on Friday. which was amazing we were able to watch the worldwide missionary broadcast and was able to talk about it throughout the day. it was very spiritually uplifting and the most amazing thing that i was able to learn was that as every speaker went up they started with "fellow servants" it was sweet to here the apostles say these words it showed there humility and dedication to serving the lord. we are all servants of the lord and should continue to call upon the good Shepard for all our needs cause he is always there for us! and then saturday and sunday was stake conference! that was great as well. i always feel that the talks are inspired! they bring so much power and force to my heart that i can only imagine how the people of the stake are feeling as they speak. its amazing!
but this week while we were looking for someone to teach we thought of a former investigator that we remembered on a list that we had and decided to go and try to meet with him.. when we found his house and looked for him we found out he wasnt home at the moment but there was a lady who was working for the family to take care of the father and watching over him. as we explained that we were missionaries she got excited and wanted us to pray for her.. so we decided to share something as well. we introduced the book of Mormon to her and testified of its divinity and power to feel closer to god. as we closed the lesson i felt impressed to ask her what she was feeling.. she explained that she didint understand what was growing in her heart but she said it felt right to her! as she said this i felt the spirit soften hers and mine and i was able to testify that that was the holy ghost she was feeling and she could continue to feel that way as she read the book of Mormon! this experience has caused me to reflect on the great gift that has been given to me and every member who has entered into a covenant with our father in heaven and has received the holy ghost! sometimes as members of the church we forget about the holy ghost and the critical role it plays in our lives. growing up in the church i know ive felt the holy ghost in my life many times but like this lady i couldn't identify it, but i knew it felt right! may we always remember how the spirit feels and guilds us in every choice that we make! may we always recognize the great beauty and peace that it brings to our souls as we live and learn the gospel!
love you mom! hope you have a great week!
