Well this week I don’t have a ton to say. It was kind of an out of routine week, but still don’t have a ton to say.
We had Zone Conference again this Friday, and District Conference Saturday and Sunday for all of Beira. It was super nice having President and Sister Kretly up here like always, but we also had one
of the Area 70 here, Elder and Sister Ellis. Basically the entire 3 days they all talked about Tithing, the importance of the Priesthood, and the base of it all. Faith. It was a super nice weekend and gave a
lot more focus to our members and us as missionaries on what we need to help our areas with.
Something I really liked that was said that we are gonna use a lot and teach a lot is Elder Ellis said, "We don’t pay Tithing with money, we pay it with Faith." He explained that if we honestly believe the promises of Heavenly Father than we will trust Him and pay with our faith. I think that’s going to help a lot of our member here. Also Sister Ellis said something that really stuck out to me and I feel
like applies to all aspects of life. "Sacrifice is not a loss, its preparation for something better." Take what you may from that.
The area and families are kind of status quo because we didn’t get a lot of time in the area this week, but they are doing well. I am super excited for this next transfer to see some of them baptized!
I am about to finish the Book of Mormon again and I was thinking about how many times I’ve read the same commandments or teachings or what have you. Mom you said that its crazy how fast the Nephites let pride get to them and become a wicked people again after just a few generations after Christ visited them, because they stopped doing the little things so it became easier to stop the big ones. That’s why the scriptures say the same things over and over again. And we hear many
of the same teachings each General Conference or at Church every week. Its because we are idiots. Heavenly Father knows how easily we forget and justify, but luckily He is patient and willing to remind us every day in the scriptures. Someday it’ll get through our thick skulls right?
Well that was my week. Good, but no much to say. Love you all. Have a good week.
