Malo e’ lelei Kainga Lotu!
HOLY GUACAMOLE AND SUNSHINE AND ALL THINGS HAPPY. I hope that you are all having such a wonderful day! I know I am!
This week has been… interesting! First of all, on Wednesday I had to give a lesson at my district meeting on Developing Faith in Jesus Christ. I was happy to do it, but I don’t really like teaching other missionaries, because I feel like they already know the things that I say because they have more experience than me. But that’s ok, it went really well! I decided there were 4 main steps to developing Faith in Jesus Christ. #1: You have to have a belief/ hope that He is there. This can come from experiences, questioning, and even knowledge from those around you. #2: You put that belief into action. Like when you plant a seed. You know it can grow, but unless you physically plant it, and nourish it, it will never be a tree. #3: You start to gain trust. You see that your hope/belief, when put into action, produces blessings, and you start to gain a trust in Him. #4: You gain a testimony that you eventually desire to share with others. Now, the hard part is figuring out where you are in this process. I know where I want to be, but the real question is, how can I get there?
I learned a lot from teaching this lesson!
What else is new… OH! We sort of have 3 cats! They always hang around our flat! So we named them! The ginger one is George, The grayish one is Mahalo, and the black one is Gato! It’s crack up. They are so cute, and sometimes if we leave the door open, they try to come inside, but we aren’t allowed to have pets… sad:( Hahahahaha they keep our lives interesting.
Also this week, my companion and I had Lettuce and Marmite sandwiches…. Very interesting. Probably will never do that again if you know what I mean:) YUCK.
That’s about all this week! Thanks for all of your love and support! I love being a missionary! Kakite!
Spiritual thought: Isaiah 53. READ IT. The Atonement of Jesus Christ is real. He actually did that. Stop learning about the Savior as an individual, and start learning about who He is TO YOU. It will change your perspective, and increase your relationship with Him.
