The library internet is under the works so we went to the senior couples home to email.
This has been a long week, but the Lord is for sure blessing us. Well so here is the news-- I'm staying in Milford Haven with Elder Dutton so I'll be here for another 6 weeks the next transfer day is 31st of October--Halloween transfer!
It has been good here. We are working hard and more importantly trying to work a lot smarter. We are trying to be more productive and plan better and be more organised and it is paying off. It's all about on Friday weekly planning set up all your teaches, dinners, everything then over the next couple of days confirm and get people to come teaching with you, then Sunday confirm the fellowshippers, then your week is set. It's perfect! so that's what we are going to do this transfer and we are going to see success.
So here is the update of what has been happening.....
Last week we had a zone meeting and training in Swansea so that was good.
We have been doing loads of finding trying to find people to teach.
We have been able to do a couple of service projects for some members
more finding and
I have learnt on my mission that no matter how much you go out and work if the desire to go out and work and the right attitude isn't there then to be honest your just wasting your time and the Lord's time. So I have prayed everyday to have a better desire, a better attitude, to be happy, be filled with love, and have faith. i feel those are the most important qualities we can develop.
On monday we stopped by this potential with a member and we pulled up to the house and I realised I had wrote down the wrong address. and so we were like oh well let's knock it, so we did, and this lady and her sister let us in and we had a lesson and we are going to go back tomorrow and they want to come to church! The Lord is blessing us for sure!
Then we spent all day in Pembroke Dock an area about 1 hour away on bike so we bike out there and spend all day and get 5 potentials and a couple of those are families!!! Miracles are happening.
In district meeting we talked about families and how the gospel can bless them and how most of our drive to be on a mission is because of our families and how the gospel has blessed us. So we are striving to find a family to teach. So our goal is by the end of Sunday to find a family! We want it soooo bad!
Things are good here. I love this area, I love the people, I'm trying my best to love my companion, and I want to see success-- but something we always have to look at is why do we want success, is it for recognition or because we want to bring children of God back.
I love my mission, even though it can be hard, I have learnt some of the most valuable life lessons ever!!! I will appreciate my mission forever and everything that it has taught me.
