This week was a really great fun week! We did three splits this week and we already start this week with one tonight! I can’t really remember what my bed looks like anymore. This week’s event of the preparation of the Book of Mormon musical was a speech by a professor bushman. He was the editor of the joseph Smith papers. Two of our investigators came and it was a really great speech called “The Perplexing Book of Mormon”. It was more on the history side of it, but I even learned many things about the Book of Mormon that I didn’t know before.
This week in District meeting I gave a training on how to better find people to teach. I love being able to give trainings because I always learn way more then I could ever teach anyone about the subject. Something really cool about this Young single adult branch is how awesome they are at working with their friends to share the gospel. This week we taught a girl who has been coming with a member to our sports night we have every Wednesday. It was a really great lesson and really cool to see the friend bare testimony to her of why he knows this Church is true.
On Friday we were asked to teach the missionary prep class for institute. Our focus was supposed to just be on the restoration when Joseph Smith restored the gospel. We taught out of the scriptures and explained in detail the story and then after wards we were suppose to teach them how they would teach it to their investigators. We decided to ask Sister Alvarez my companion in Laval to come and have her and her companion do a roll play to show the students how to do it. Well they decided to be more effective with their time and bring one of their investigators. The role-play was amazing because it was not even a role play two missionaries were teaching the gospel to an investigator. At the end of the lesson when the spirit was so strong they committed her to baptism on December 13. You should of seen all the mouths of the students they couldn’t believe they were watching what they were watching. We also had a girl there that had just gotten off her mission the day before and she bore a great testimony of missionary work. It was such a great class and we felt so lucky to of been able to testify as the spirit taught!
This weekend was our Stake Conference. We had many meetings on Saturday mainly focusing on missionary work. It is so great how wards will now becoming together to really help the missionaries fulfill the Lord’s work. Meetings are so different in French because it makes you have to pay attention so well so you don’t miss anything. Our stake conference on Sunday was really neat for me! Sister Houde my first companion and her new husband both gave talks on just being married in the temple! It was so great to hear her testimony on that and what the coolest thing was I could understand everything she said compared to a year ago when we were together, I couldn’t understand a thing ha-ha
After the conference I was a really busy day. The son of the parents I was teaching in Laval for months received the Melchezidek priesthood. He has been a member for 6 months and he has progressed so much it’s amazing as well as his parents. It was so cool to have them there to see their son receive that. Then we had to go to a singing practice because all the missionaries in the Montréal stake are required to go to the flash mob practices. There will be a flash mob down town Montréal to help promote our religion in a good way with a bunch of members in the area. After all of that I went on splits with a sister in an area I have heard about since I came on the mission and I figured out why. It is a super cool area! We taught so many awesome Haitians we would just go from door to door teaching all of there recent converts all in the same building! We also had a super cool street contact. We stopped this man on the street and asked him if he was religious. He told us he was and we were able to set up an appointment with him and his whole family and then when we asked him if he had any friends that were interested he gave us a ton! It was so cool to see someone so willing to let us come to teach the gospel!!
I love this work so much and I love the spirit so much. You just can’t describe the feeling of the spirit being so strong with in you! Always strive to have the spirit with you i promise it makes you happier and can help you with any problems! Have a great week!
