Week 7 June 3
Tudo Bem?! Well this week was a whole lot busier than last week! We had a lot of meetings, which was great! I learn so much when we get together with our district and zone. So as for the title...we had a district meeting and were talking about the Book of Mormon and testimony. It came up that when we bear our testimony and invite people to keep commitments we need to "be as bold as a bear." I have definitely been working on being more bold. It’s hard but I'm getting better at it :)
We had a crazy experience this week that really strengthened my testimony of Heavenly Father takes care of His missionaries. We have a man in one of our area books who is a Do Not Contact. He is an anti-Mormon protester and has a whole basement full of anti stuff. But he loves getting to talk to missionaries and even requests them on mormon.org. So after district meeting one of our zone leaders came up to us and warned us about that guy, he said the last sisters who met him ended up calling the zone leaders crying and he didn't want that to happen to us. Then we were tracting a few days later and an older woman answered the door and told us she's not interested but her son-in-law, Steve, loves talking about religion, and that he lives next door but wasn't home. Sister Funk recognized the name and we skipped the next house. Then the next guy we talked to wasn't interested either but then he warned us to not go next door either. So, wow. The way I see this is Heavenly Father definitely did not want us to talk to this man if he gave us 3 warnings. I am so thankful for those warnings and for the testimony I now have of being protected on my mission.
So it has been a good week! We do a lot of service which is great. A lot of people don't let us do service, we think it’s because we are sister missionaries...but we Love doing service! Serving others makes me so happy :) We also taught a lesson this week with a member present and it went so well! The member even bore her testimony about the experience on Sunday and it made us feel so good about how the lesson went and a lot better about our teaching.
I hope everyone is doing well! I challenge everyone this week to get out there and open your mouth and share the gospel! You will never regret talking to someone about the gospel :) If nothing else you are planting a seed in their mind and heart :) Have a great week and keep on smiling!
