This has been a pretty good week. Things have really been progressing
and improving in our area. We are starting to teach a new investigator
this week named Rick. He is so awesome. He has such a strong belief in
God. He knows how to act on the spirit and he tries to align his will
with Gods will. When he lived down in Phoenix he would sing to the
Homeless people and would give them hamburgers. He seems really
Also this week Elder Heaton my trainee invited his first person to be
baptized. He invited Isaac Brown and he said YES! He now has a date
for November 7th. He was suppose to come to church on Sunday, but he
didnt show up. :(
We have done so much service this week as well. It seemed like
everyday we had service. We did everything from building a add on to a
house to shoveling dirt to building a wall. It was pretty awesome, but
I am pretty exhausted from all of it. We have a lot of service this
week as well.
We had Zone Training Meeting on Thursday. It was such a good one. The
whole thing was about how we can become a PMG missionary and not a EAC
(Easter Austraillian Current) which is from the movie Finding Nemo.
Not being a EAC missionary means not just going with the flow,
standing up for what is right and not being picky on which commandment
(mission rule) we follow. It was pretty good. I am definitely striving
to be better.
We did some service for someone not of our faith this week as well. We
put a exercise bike together for him because he was not physically
capable of doing it. This gave us a opportunity to just get to know
him more. One thing the mission is pushing is something called the
"Ammon Plan". The Ammon plan is a service plan where members find us
service opportunity with people not of our faith. Just like Ammon did
in Alma 17, when he showed up and didn't want to teach but wanted to
serve. We do that to. We don't have any underlining purpose of
teaching them although we would love that. We just want to serve. We
let the member know that we wont talk about religion with them, though
if they ask any questions then they are free game. Haha. Just like how
Ammon waited for Lamoni to ask him more. We know that if they just see
us and see the light in us they will want to know more. As we live our
religion that is when they want to know more. This is a pretty
effective way to do missionary work.
