As far as this week goes, it's been pretty awesome! Elder Jackman and I have been teaching more in unity and teaching to the person's needs better, so it's been more fun!This week, there was also a wedding that we got to go to, Vanesia and Julian, Vanesia is a less-active member that started coming to church with her Catholic fiance for the last month, and it was pretty cool to be there! We were introduced to a bunch of people who don't believe the same things we believe, but they weren't very interested. But at least a lot of people now know who we are and that we are nice!
We had a meeting as a zone/stake yesterday with Elder Torres, an Area General Authority. The reason being is that this stake has been chosen by Elder Torres to be a pilot stake- we're trying something new in this stake to help some less-active priesthood holders to become more active. If it works, it'll go to the rest of the stakes in the area- and it'll be awesome! I'll keep you posted as to what happens and how it goes!
Nothing much else has happened this week, but there is General Conference this week! Also, the Easter Initiative from the Church starts on Friday! It's a great video, and you all better share it to your social media profiles!! And you best be watching General conference! Next week, you all better let me know where you shared the video (instagram, Twitter, Facebook, email, text, snapchat, carrier pigeon [however you do that], whatever it is!) , and what you are going to change in your life to follow the words of the prophets more in your life! (because, you know, that is the reason that they wouldn't have the sacrament for a two-week period, to become better from what you learned) I'll follow up next week! (and I'll keep names of the people who don't let me know, and you'll be excluded from the weekly email. ;)
Keep being you, no matter what anybody else says, and keep practicing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in your life, because that's what was restored through the prophet Joseph Smith and what is still revealed through the prophets today!!
Te whanaunga mo ake tonu!
