This was the letter i thought i sent last week.. turns out it got stuck as a draft!
Soooo this week we had leadership council. I was able to talk about lessons.. but what Ive realized is that a lot of the missionaries don't really know how to teach that well according to the peoples needs.. All of them teach and explain very well but when it comes to really helping these people we have all decided that we can do better..
I have been thinking a lot about how I could help them in this area and I realized its by really listening to the people and helping and teaching them according to their need. Also, to find the need we have to ask questions.. I talked about the power of testifying and how important it is for us as missionaries to not only testify but to explain the process of how we have come to have our testimonies.. the people here don't know our background and the majority think we were born with a testimony and everyone has a process.. no matter the circumstance.. I talked a lot about how can we as missionaries teach in a way so that these people feel that they need the gospel in their lives... to feel that they need to get baptized.. and I thought about it and we have to help them gain an eternal perspective.. if they can gain that eternal perspective they will have that click in their brains and realize that they NEED the gospel in their lives...that they NEED the atonement in their lives!
I am so grateful for that click! I am so grateful for an eternal perspective that influences all my choices!
I still LOVE the mission!!! I still want to be a better missionary and disciple!
Was able to sneak to Madryn for a day but we had zero time to visit my families :( but we are going to go back soon and some came and saw me at the church!!
