serve others

Monday- We did our emails and went to the mall to browse around a little bit! Then we went to the chapel and started to learn the Haka for Christmas conference! After that we got to go and follow up on some potentials with no luck and then tried to see some less actives but no one was there!

Tuesday- We had a full on day of finding! We started off with tracting in the morning and we found a few potentials! then we went and had lunch at the flat. After that we went and followed up on some potentials and also went and saw two less actives! After that we went and had splits at the chapel with the ward mission leader and Bro. Ramirez! It was good because we went and visited some active members and they were home haha!

Wednesday- We had Zone conference the whole day with President and Sister Back! It was super good and I felt pretty uplifted and inspired afterwards which is always great! After Zone conference we just did some GQing at the train station before we went and had dinner.

Thursday- We did service in the morning for the Latu family! We painted another bedroom in their house which was good for the world wide day of service #LIGHTtheWORLD! Hahaha after service we had MCM with our ward mission leader. Then we went and visited Vera and Bobby, a less active couple and they were awesome! We had a really good discussion with them about the plan of salvation and why bad things happen to good people! They also had the cutest little puppy too so I enjoyed playing around with it haha!

Friday- We did our weekly planning in the morning and then we stayed home the whole day because my companion was sick! So while he slept I got to do heaps of extra studies and I learned so much! I have learned to love studying and reading on my mission which is a huge blessing because I hated it before the mission haha! It was a nice day to be able to just have heaps of time to read and learn more.

Saturday- We took the bus around all day and did finding haha! Some members saw us walking and gave us money for lunch so that was nice! We tracted for ages in the heat and we had no potentials haha but we did meet a lot of Hindus! After tracting we went to the Ormsby's house for dinner and they were so awesome! They have the cutest kids and it was just a great time there! This ward has so many great families! After that we did some GQing at the station and then walked home in the ghetto hahaha we were lucky no one stabbed us ;) we did get yelled at by people driving by though haha haters gonna hate!!

Sunday- I woke up sick this morning haha so I took a power nap before ward council! After we had ward council and then church we went and visited some members with the Elders Quorum president! Then we went to have dinner at the Pikula's house and we had a nice baked ham! It was the perfect way to end our fast!

I love in the Book of Mormon how we are able to gain a better and deeper understanding of the Atonement! We read in Alma 7:11-12 that the Atonement covers more than just sin but it covers EVERYTHING!!!

Alma 7,

11.And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind; and this that the wordmight be fulfilled which saith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people.
 12 .And he will take upon him deaththat he may loose the bands of death which bind his people; and he willtake upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he mayknow according to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities
I can testify that the power of the Atonement and Christ's grace is real and it can change us and transform us into true followers of Christ and we can become like him through it! Love you all have a good week and remember to serve others this month!
