Another week here is South Jordan!
Sister Swain's dad sent us some poi and Kalua Pig! It was sooo 'ono! He has a friend that works for the airlines and lives in Draper so she dropped it off at a member's home. We were definitely happy Hawaiians!
We taught seminary at one of the local charter schools in our area. We took about 10 minutes in each period to discuss missionary work. Look up Matt 28:18-20 . What does the Lord command of us? And what is His promise?
We had a baptism on Saturday! It was awesome. His entire deacon's quorum was there and they have played a very influential role in his conversion. He grandfather baptized and confirmed him. The short talks given at the baptism were great. The Spirit was so strong; A true blessing for this young man and his family.
In my studies this morning, I read a talk by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland. He's awesome. He mentions that sometimes missionaries struggle. I know that they struggle because of rejection. Rejection in this sense that investigators have received a witness of the truthfulness of the gospel, but aren't willing to change. They feel comfortable and think, "I'm a good person, that's good enough." But we read in the scriptures, we have to do more. We can't just be "good people," the Lord has commanded us that we need to have faith in Him, repent, be baptized, receive the Holy Ghost and endure do the end. 2 Nephi 31. Because of Him, we've all been given salvation, but eternal life is dependent on us. My question to you is, how much do you love the Savior? I think about this every day. When I wake up, throughout the day, what am I doing to show that I love the Savior? Let us all remember the great love the Savior and our Father has for us. Let us all be more dedicated to showing love, kindness, patience and obedience.
Love you all. have a great week!
