Man, there are loads of temples in Utah county! (4 temples: Mount Timpanogos, Provo, Provo City Center, Payson.) I think there's only 2 in England. English people think it's far to drive an hour to get somewhere haha I guess it's because they live in such a small landscape and everything is walking distance. They'd all die from driving too much if they came to America.
We didn't get to see the Women's Conference this weekend. We'll only see 2 saturday sessions and 1 sunday session of General Conference because of the time difference we can't see the other sessions.
This week went so quick! We taught a few of our church investigators the basics like faith and prayer. In district meeting, I received personal revelation from God. Elder Sorenson was saying something about how people become converted to Christ. The thing that stuck out to me from his words was 'Faith in Christ' When he said that, the name Paisley came to my mind and in our lesson with him we wanted to make sure he knew what faith was. Turned out that he didn't have a solid idea what faith was. This was the thing holding him back from progressing! And it was all because of the little miracle in District Meeting.
Then another church investigator was also not progressing even though he kept all of the commitments. We found out faith in Christ and prayer was the weak links. From this experience I learned that teaching the basics are SO important! They may be simple but they are the reason by which our church investigators come unto Christ and have that true conviction of the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Also this week, I went on an exchange with Sis Holland and Sis Smidt. It was really good! We did some street contacting and focused on finding Chinese people to teach. The Zone Leaders took the remaining Address Unknown Files we had and basically told us to find more Chinese people. So I am back to being a missionary in the Chinese Area(: In our street contacting we had a few great street contacting techniques to use like 'Do you know the meaning of Easter?' 'Can you help me take a picture?' (person holding the Book of Mormon) But the challenge was that it was Easter break....Most of the Chinese go on vacation. And we have seen less Asians in the city centre in the past few weeks. So we weren't sure if we were going to find a lot of potential church investigators that day. But after a few hours of fun street contacting we met a few interested people. We got 6 new potentials! There's a huge miracle when you are prepared to talk people. When you set out what approaches you are going to do and set the number of potentials you want to get you will achieve it. Heavenly Father is always with us and blessing us!
This week is general conference! All I can say is:
" If we teach by the Spirit and you listen by the Spirit, some one of us will touch on your circumstance, sending a personal prophetic epistle just to you.” —Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
As we are prepared spiritually to listen to general conference we will obtain the most perfect help we need, our questions will be answered and we will receive the most perfect guidance and direction.
