What a powerful week it has been for me, I dont think Ive ever realized so many of my faults, errors, and weekness then during this week. I learned many things about Unity, service and the importance of being humble and meek. I pondered a little about the difference between those to sentences and I decided that the more we study and try to apply unity and meekness and being humble the more we relize how far we really are from those principal attributes of Christ. So, needless to say Ive learned a lot this week.
Elder Bond and I this week really became more unified and one in purpose. We are trying to overcome the same struggles, trying to give more to the Lord and trying to forget about ourselfs and just focus on others. It is such a blesssing the Lord has given me throughout all of my life and mission. He has placed me around others that have those same goals that I have, that when unified with those surrounding me I have been able to achieve so much more than if I were on my own. My family is a great example of this and also every companion Ive had in the mission. He is just so perfect in where he puts and how he blesses us. We, Elder Bond and I, have the greatest blessing to also watch the example of Hermana Marler and President Marler, they are true believers of Christ and they are helping Elder bond and I overcome these weekness that we have. They are such great examples of Charity and of Meekness, of really trying to do all they can to help those around them.
This past week we were really busy, we gave Three 5 hour trainings, 3 days in a row. Two Multizones and 1 Leadership Council. We had the greatest blessing to go to an early morning temple session on Wednesday morning the day of the Leadership Council. We were pretty tired, but I dont think Ive ever learned so much in the temple. I tried my very hardest to not fall asleep and The Lord blessed me with so much strength and with lots of Treasures.
We trained on The Perspective of Our heavenly Father, we focused on how we work with his Children not just numbers. We also taught the importance of inviting others to bautism and did an example of our to do it. It was a neat expierence. The spirit is the teacher in every moment. Thats what we taught in the Multizone. In The leardership Council we taught about how our personal conversion and the things that Christ has done to change our lives is what fuels our passion to do this great work. and then we also taught about how we can teach more and walk less. About always using our time the Way the Lord needs us to so we can help others Come unto Him.
I can not wait for this wonderful general Conference we are about to particape in. I have so many questions and things that I need to learn and I cant wait. I hope that I can be humble and meek enough to listen and to be able to apply all the things The spirit tell me to apply!
Thanks for all the support and Prayers and for all the things you have taught me.
