This week has been a good one...for the most part. We have been gathering a few new investigators and we put some one on date the other day! We have really have been making it clear lately with those we are teaching that baptism is a goal and we as missionaries are there to help them get there and understand why it is essential for eternal progression.
Training has been fun, it's a lot more work on my part, but I like taking initiative and it seems my way of doing things is working out...haha. My comp is cool and the ward loooves him. We aren't exactly alike, but we make it happen, I love the kid!
A lot of this week I've been pretty sick, with the flu or something...we got through the week though so it all good! The other day we were Tracting and ran into an interesting person. He really wants us to tell people and focus on the fact God is almighty and we must fear him. It was pretty funny, he was like grabbing my face and rubbing it like a little kid and kept telling me I missed a spot on the stache...;) hahaha burciaga was laughing way hard, I was pretty weirded out. He kept pointing at mount hood and saying out God created that and how almighty he is. Sometimes he would yell, sometimes he would whisper. It was an interesting experience to have a drunk old biker dude with a beard grab my face, but I noticed he had the light of Christ. I saw it in his eyes. He passion and love he had for Christ was exponential, and it hit me hard. When he brought up we need to fear God, I was thinking. I agree but maybe not in the same way he thought. As missionaries sometimes we run across some pretty funky people, and are purpose is to bring ALL unto Christ. During my studies I came across this and I think it's pretty cool. It relates to missionaries and non missionaries:
"9 Only rebel not ye against the Lord, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the Lord is with us: fear them not."
Sometimes we are scared of a reaction, or timid to talk to people. The Lord has prepared certain people that are in need of hearing the message we have to share. My challenge to you all is to look past the "cover of the book" or outer appearance, and to not fear the people, and submit yourselves to the will of the Lord. The last days are here, anyways, it's the least we can do for what our savior has done for us. Just look at the moon the other night....that was pretty cool how red it was. I love you guys. Keep hitting me up with the fun stuff you do at home.
