So this past week we had a BUNCH of changes in the mission! We are literally flooding the Earth with the Book of Mormon!!!!!!!! And man has it been such a blessing to me. So we have been challenged and asked to work in a different way than I have been working for a year, which is fine with me because I like change sometimes. So I have been pretty pumped about it! The goal is that we give out 5 Book of Mormons every day with scheduled appointments to return, and talking to pretty much everyone! This is something super different than the normal working through members all day that I am used to but I am still excited about it! It was a great week full of miracles!
We were also challenged to read the whole book of mormon in 12 weeks, and I love Book of Mormon challenges because I love reading the BOM fast. I always learn a ton and it is hard to put down!! But other than that, I wanted to share an experience that we had last week!
So we were working with a less active family and this particular member didn't want to give us a reference and I looked her in the eyes and said "I know you have a name in your head right now and that you need to say." And she was like..but Elder, she is super evangélica and doesn't want anything to do with our church. But for some reason I knew that something would happen. She gave us the name and direction and we went and she didn't want anything haha, but as we were leaving I heard a voice call out "Elders", and that isn't that normal here because there aren't a ton of people who know the church. Long story short, it is a less active member that just moved here a couple months ago and was looking for the church so her 9 year old daughter could be baptized...ohhhhh yeahhhh! And in her street they are all family and a bunch of them have shown interest!! So the moral of the story is you need to give references to the missionaries, you never know why a name would come to your mind!!
In my study of the Book of Mormon, something really called my attention that I wanted to share with you all. In 1 Nephi 2:6-7 :
