There is so much to takl about this week, but zero time to talk about it! In short here is my week!
Many appointment cancelled this week. We did everything we could to find more people! We have several potentials to see this week, and that we taught last week!
Angie and Otja are Progressing alright. Have hit some snags, but we have a strong feeling they could make their dates! We taught them about the Plan of Salvation this past week. Still have some questions on it. they also need to be taught about the Restoration this week. We will be teaching them on tuesday about it! Hopefully they get the picture that we are painting!
One Person that is very important here in all of Namibia is sister Sara Leigh. She is very high up in the SWAPO political party. She is incharge of all the youth here in Namibia. She has been very busy these past several weeks. But she made time for us! She kind of gave me the cold shoulder the first time I met her, but the second time, I cracked some jokes and she began to open up! 🙂 Some times you got to do what you got to do to have people lighten up to you! Glad she likes me! 🙂 We taught her the 10 commandments, mainly since we haven’t seen here at church in something like forever! She also asked about tithing! I am so glad the Boy Scouts paid off! I was prepared with one of the envelopes of tithing. She came once before, and was so lost. She thought we don’t pay tithing, helped her to see how it should be truly done! 🙂
Lastly, We had a wonderful; Fireside with the Members on Saturday! It was kind of sad to see more investigators, than members though. there were a few we wanted there that didn’t show up. Oh well for them. We taught the Branch the importance of Missionary work! In the words of Elder Bednar, “Missionaries are full time teachers, and members are full time Finders!” We helped them to see many different things. The main topics were these: 1. Having Desire, Keeping commandments, and praying for opportunities
- Being equally yoked in this great work!
- Understanding what to share! The Plan of Salvation!
- Inviting everyone to Come and See!
The message I hope hit home with some members! We have already received several referrals! We have made appointments with them and want to see them come to the knowledge of truth! Hopefully more great things will come of this!
Have a great week! Love you all!
