You know sometimes you say you have 1,000 things to do? Well, I got to experience that this week, but it is always good to be busy in the work of the Lord! :) First, we sent Elder Hepworth home Monday, so Elder White tagged up with us for the week. He is so chill and we love the heck out of him. He is a great missionary. :) We had to split the days between our area and his so that when he gets his companion, they will have some appointments to go to! Tons of fun, and I am so excited to have him stay this transfer.
I guess I should have led with this, but turns out my companion is not being tranferred and this will be his last area! I was so relieved to find out he was staying because our area is pretty big and we haven't had a ton of time in it because of all the zone business we do. Also, there were new stakes made a couple months back and they rearranged the stake boundaries. Also this transfer, the mission aligned their zone boundaries with the stake boundaries and made some new zones. The zone we are over was the UST zone, but now is the Kwamo zone. We lost 4 missionaries, and are still one of the biggest zones, but we are blessed for sure, just means a few less missionaries to be over which means more time in our own area! :)
We had the chance to meet this girl Rebecca who lives in our member's house this week. She has been coming to church the past 2 weeks and she is really sweet! :) She accepted a Baptismal date for the 27th, so we are working towards that! :)
ALSO, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY FAVORITE LITTLE SIS, BRITTAN. You are awesome and I love you and miss you and hope your day was friggin' wonderful! :)
With Elder White, we were able to meet this lady, Sister Mary. She had been assigned to read in the Book of Mormon, Jacob 3:1 and Moroni 10:4 talking about prayer and how we receive our answers. So I will attach those scriptures to ponder about how we can receive answers to our prayers, especially the Book of Mormon.
1 But behold, I, Jacob, would speak unto you that are pure in heart. Look unto God with firmness of mind, and pray unto him with exceeding faith, and he will console you in your afflictions, and he will plead your cause, and send down justice upon those who seek your destruction. (Jacob 3:1)
4 And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost. (Moroni 10:4)
If we pray to our Father with faith in Christ, a firmness of mind or real intent on following our answer, and have a pure and sincere heart, He will answer our prayers and help us to know the truth of the Restored Gospel, and as these scriptures do come from the Book of Mormon, there is no better time than now to pray to know the truth, or to have those prayers re-answered by our Heavenly Father to strengthen our testimonies.
Love you all,
