We have a bunch of old referrals given to us this week that have yet to be contacted. We had one in particular that was an adventure to find. We had to drive in and out of the state to get to this particular road this woman lived on. Few! after a long drive we were able to drop off the King James Bible she wanted.
We had a wonderful District meeting this week. Its the first one this transfer so it is a new bunch of missionaries. Our District Leader got up and said "you are ether going to love me or hate me for this but I want you to make a five min training on how to be a concentrated missionary, Go!" We were all not very happy. But we did it and all of us shared the training's. It was so good! I felt spiritually feed and was really happy we didnt just do get to know you games that day. Im excited to work with this District this transfer.
On of the insights shared that day was this
"None of us should be like the fisherman who thinks he has been fishing all day when in reality he has spent most of his time getting to and from the water, eating lunch, and fussing over his equipment. Fishing success is related to how long you have your line in the water, not how long you are away from the apartment. Some fisherman are away from home fore twelve hours and have their line in the water for ten hours. Other fisherman are away from home for twelve hours and have their lines in the water for only two hours. This last type may wonder why they do not have the same success as others.
"The same principle applies to missionaries whom the Master called'fishers of men' a missionary's line should drop into the fishing water the moment he or she leaves the apartment"
-Dallin H. Oaks
This week we also went tracking in an area that the sisters before us didnt touch because they felt like it was a little scary. We both thought we could go on a bright sunny day and be brave and find lost souls. When we were walking up to the first trailer Sister Chistopherson got a very clear prompting that said " I already told Sister Clark and Sister Herrara not to go here, do I have to tell you too?" So we both qickly got out of there. It shows that we are watched over by a caring Father.
Well I was asked to sing at Scarement meeting next week. we will see how htat goes.
We will be going to the Aztec Ruin today YAY!!
