So recently in a leadership meeting we decided to change a bit of the focus of the mission to pray more often, including in a first contact. THis includes a goal with in the first contact that we teach a very short lesson of the restoration and in the end of everything finish with a prayer. Even if they are not interested. In the meeting we were a bit shocked (but we as leaders came up with it) and President was like "are we in agreement? is this what we want to do?" there were a few that were a bit sceptical because it was a big change and very difficult in many areas to accomplish this and in the end someone shared 2 Nephi 32:8 which says: "the evil spirit teacheth not a man topray, but teacheth him that he must not pray."
We all laughed and president said ok well do it then. At first it was wierd to ask a person if we could pray with them 5 minutes after meeting them but it really brings something different into the lessons and contacts. The power of prayer is amazing!
Other story of the week is that yesterday one of my companions and i got called in to primary to be the sharing time lesson as the missionaries. It was amazing to recognize the wards love for us and also share our thoughts with them about our missions. I could really feel my saviours love for them and everyone in the moment. The youth of these days are so amazing and are a real light to the world. Im so glad i have been entrusted with the duty and responsibility to help save souls. It makes me want to shout to the world what there is and I just want everyone to listen! THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST HAS BEEN RESTORED AND HE GUIDES IT! I am so blessed to be his representative and disciple.
I love you all!
