Well I was thinking for a moment, "Wow, I'm not sure what to write about because I don't remember doing a whole lot this week or what happened. I realized that it was because I got sick this week and had to stay in the house for a couple days and then we had conference. Our Mission President makes us watch conference because he says that he does not want the following scene to happen, because it has in the past.
(bad missionary) Hello we are here to talk to you about how God has come down to earth with his son and called a prophet. and how God has newly blessed us with prophets and apostles.
(investigador) you are telling me that there is a prophet in our days?
(b m) Yes
(i) And he is in your church?
(b m) Yes that is what we know to be true and what we teach
(i) Wow that is amazing! What is the last thing that your prophet said to you?
(b m) Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
(i) Oh, so the man you say is a prophet must not be that important if you don't take the time to listen to him
That would be a little embarassing. So we have to know what the prophets says especially since that is one of the greatest differences between us and other churches is that we have prophets.
But yah. I was pretty sick for a few days so I did not do a whole lot. I am not sure what it was maybe the water, or the misquitos, or a bad fish that someone gave me . . . but its all good because I feel fine now.
We are working with this girl named Shirly (who is a recent convert) to baptize her mother. So things are going really well with that. She is attending church and reading the Book of Mormon and she attended conference with us. So things are looking really good. Her baptismal date is October 25th. We have a famliy home evening with her and another family of recent converts tonight! I am not sure what we are going to teach yet but whatever it is its going to be super spiritual and powerful. A spirtual roundhouse kick to the face the will leave you and your mother weeping . . . that is the goal! (parental comment - interesting metaphor, and graphic)
I have been studying the life of Alma the younger and what kind of missionary he was. My goal is to become a missionary like him. He was a powerhouse. I made a list of his missionary attributes and where they can be found in the scriptures . . . but alas . . . I forgot the list. So maybe next week I will send it, idk.
By the way James. I saw your youtube videos of your comics that you drew I thought they were pretty funny. But you should take a 2 year break from drawing comics and attend to the other more important things that you have to do. You should fulfill your duty to the Lord.
Matt 6:33 'Look first for the kingdom of God and all other things will be added to you'. If you go on a mission first and then focus on the other things the Lord will bless you with more éxito then if you had never gone on a mission and had stayed at home doing whatever it is that you do.
