Weekly Update - Nov 17, 2014

Hey everybody, 
This has been a pretty packed week. We had a mission conference tuesday and Elder Lawrence of the 2nd Quorum of the Seventy and his wife came and spoke to us. It was a very amazing meeting. With the meeting they also stricken our music rules. Now we can only listen to mormon tabernacle choir. I think this new rule would be pretty good so that we as a mission can become more consecrated missionaries. Thats all i want to be is to become a more consecrated missionary. 

Also lately in order to continue to gain member trust we have been sharing 2 scriptures with them and pledging that we will be obedient missionaries. The first scripture is in John 4:35-38. 

35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on thefields; for they are white already to harvest.
 36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth mayrejoice together.
 37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.
 38 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.

This talks about the different roles that missionaries and members have. The members are called to Sow and the missionaries are called to reap. The next scripture talks about what we need to be doing as missionaries to be prepared for when members give us referalls and when we find people on our own. This scripture is in D&C 58:6.

Behold, verily I say unto you, for this cause I have sent you—that you might be obedient, and that your hearts might be prepared to bear testimony of the things which are to come;

We as missionaries need to be obedient to the mission rules and to the commandments so that we are prepared to testify to those that have been prepared. So that is what we are commiting to members is that we will be obedient and be prepared to share this gospel with those we come in contact with. 

Also this week we were able to watch the temple dedication for the Phoenix, AZ temple. It was such an awesome experience. This is the 2nd temple that I have seen dedicated since I have been on my mission. 

Well things are going good here. Hope all is well with yall!
