Week 16

Being a missionary is one of the greatest things, I can never ever say enough about how much of a blessing it is.

We had a zone conference on Tuesday and we talked about how to teach people and not lessons, focusing on how to ask inspired questions. It was actually something that I was trying to improve so it was awesome to have a training on that. Our mission president does an incredible job of this when he teaches us because he asks questions that get us seriously thinking. Sister Linker and I have been discussing teaching styles and how we can help other people exercise faith for themselves. 

As Sister Linker and I have been working on this we've been asking each other questions to get to know each other. We try to find ways to word questions in a way that is simple and easy to understand. We were doing this on Wednesday as we were tracting and we saw a woman sitting outside smoking. So we go up to her and Sister Linker asks a really good question to her about prayer. We have a really great conversation and we teach the restoration, give her a Book of Mormon, and set up a time to come back. It was really cool to see that when we are focused on the Lord's work then He will give us opportunities and will bless our efforts.

Her name is Sandra and she's doing really good. We have a lesson with her tomorrow at the church, we're super excited about it :)

I've learned a lot about how the spirit works and how we can come closer to our Father in Heaven. He really is mindful of all of His children, never lose hope because His plan is perfect and He's got a perfect plan for each of us if we will ​exercise faith in Him.
