This week was awesome and crazy and busy. First off, we met the BEST new investigator this week. Her name is 최 (CYH). The elders referred her to us. They had given their seats to her and her daughter on the bus, and she was really impressed with them, so they started talking and the elders asked her for her phone number. She told us, "When they asked for my number, I just felt that I HAD to give it to them." (THANK YOU LIGHT OF CHRIST AND HOLY GHOST!) So...the rest is history. We met her, we LOVE HER, she is so kind, she glows with goodness, and although she attends another church, she considers herself a student, and she is eager to learn about what we believe. She told us that we have a glow about us and we are so happy, and she can't wait to meet us again. (WE CAN'T WAIT EITHER!) Teamwork with the elders! Woohoo! The elder's gentlemen-ness is paying off. ㅋㅋㅋ
|Sister M (MTC Companion) and I are in the same zone now!! I haven't seen her in 6 months. I LOVE her!!!|
ALSO! This week we had Zone Conference. It was SO GOOOOOD. I love the Madsens! It was such a new, fun, crazy experience. They gave us snacks and stuff during the meetings. It was crazy! And they were laughing and talking and so fun. It was great. Here are two of my favorite parts of Zone Conference:
2. President Madsen taught us how to measure success. I think that (unfortunately) I have been wrapped up in the craziness of stats, and because of that, even though I have done my best as a missionary, I have felt like a failure. BUT, because of that training, I learned that I should measure my success through my commitment as a missionary. I think that as I now stop focusing on stats, and instead just caring about my investigators, that I will be able to see a lot more miracles. I also enjoyed when President taught about learning from our mistakes, and that trying our best INCLUDES making mistakes. It is a relief to know that we aren't expected to be perfect, we just need to try our best. Christ and Heavenly Father are so kind, loving, and understanding to let us make mistakes. They want us to improve and progress, and They know that a lot of that comes from learning from mistakes.
