|On the way to Zone Conference!|
So....This week we noticed the overly obsessed gamers of Pokemon Go. My companion and I decided to say to them, "Hey, are you playing Pokemon Go? Have you found what you are looking for?" And when they say no, we answer, "Don't step another foot, because we can help you find what you are looking for: the gospel of Jesus Christ." Yeah, it hasn't worked yet. But we will keep trying! I know it will eventually get someone!
This week has been a great week! We were able to meet with a family, thanks to our WONDERFUL Stake President. We got to teach (or rather the Spirit taught) them about the Restoration. They had wonderful questions and the Spirit was so strong with every answer we had to every question. And they were so open-hearted and opened-minded to accept and listen to our message. We gave them a Book of Mormon to read and told them all the blessings that are in store for them. They were REALLY excited, and the Spirit was so strong! They accepted the invitation to read and pray about the Book of Mormon, and now they will be meeting with us again VERY soon! :) God has such a wonderful plan for all of us. We may or may not know it or like it at the time.
So another cool story: There was a man named William who we were trying to find. We had taught him and committed him to baptism and everything. GO SPIRIT! Anyway, we went to his house and he was gone. He had moved out. Just one day later! Anyway, we decided to go look for him in this one park where lots of homeless people live. We were there and then all of a sudden an ambulance came to pick up someone who was really sick in the car parked by us. We went over with our ward mission leader, who was our member present, and asked if we could do anything. They asked us to follow them, and so Sister Rugg and I biked to the hospital with our ward mission leader behind us. We got to the hospital and the woman who was sick was able to receive a Priesthood blessing. It was so neat. GOD HAS A PLAN FOR ALL OF US. Again, it isn't always what we think, but when we follow the Holy Ghost and do what God wants us to do, we will be guided to do what is right.
So I heard that this week back home is GIRLS CAMP! HUZZAH! I loved Girls Camp. I heard the theme this year is "I've decided . . ." and I thought I would give mine as well. Being a missionary is honestly hard. BUT SO REWARDING. I was thinking and praying about it and "I've decided to love myself as God loves me, because once we love ourselves, we can LOVE GOD AND OTHERS SO MUCH MORE." I hope everyone tries this; Decide what you have decided and make goals that we can slowly and surely get to.
I hope you have a wonderful week! You are all in my prayers. I know that I am doing God's work and am SOOOO HAPPY to be here in Modesto, California. Oh! Transfers came and I am staying with Sister Rugg. We have a lot to do! :)
