This week was a week full of reactivation, running away, and powerful investigators. We have been seeing a lot of less actives this week. Our ward has mostly less actives in it so we have been gearing a lot of our energy in reactivation. We ask them always if they are reading the Book of Mormon and 98% of the time it is no. Which saddens me because that is the heart of my testimony. So we have been reading the Book of Mormon with them and explaining different things about it to them. It seems to help them remember why they were baptized in the first place. Helps them have a desire to come back to church to worship the Savior. The Book of Mormon is so vital. We need to read it every day or Satan will slowly creep in and have us forget our testimony. Of course we do not want Satan to win!
Our teaching pool keeps going up and down. I notice our teaching pool is usually good when we have members giving us referrals and working with us. When we as members are not being missionaries and helping the full time missionaries we are not fulfilling our purpose. The best way to share the gospel is serving. Having charity(pure love of Christ) helps us to see that everyone deserves to be happy and loved by learning and accepting the truth. So always remember you have a tag on your heart. Share the gospel with everyone. Even those that we think are too far gone because with Jesus Christ you are never too far gone.
Alright, let's end on a good note. haha Ngoni is progressing so well. He asks funny funny questions but you can tell he really just wants to know the truth. When we visited him this week Sister Maumbe (a member) was telling us that Ngoni has changed or he is different around us. He usually is quiet and keeps to himself but around us he is talkative and positive. I love how the gospel lets us be our true self. It helps us to be confident and know we are children of God.
A quote I loved during personal study:
"As we strive to become like God, He can make of us more than we could ever make of ourselves." ~Elder Grow
I love being a missionary serving the Lord in Zimbabwe. The people are so kind and ready for the gospel. I love that the Lord is always there for us. When we are down don't be afraid to cry for help from the Lord. I promise He will help you because He has helped me so many times. Alma 37:37.
I love you and hope you have a great week!!!!
