This week was a pretty good one! Things have been pretty crazy here, we were all over the place, we made it through both transfers and MLC which was a miracle… Lets just say we got less sleep than normal haha. We were also able to have some really cool teaching experiences as well. On Saturday we had Gary over to the Mission Home to watch a session of conference with us. It was awesome. Gary said it was a "revelatory experience". He shared what he had learned with us and said "it makes sense why there was a need for a restoration because of all the confusion that was on the earth during the 1400-1800. It was awesome!!
|Mission Leadership Conference September|
On Sunday we got a few Less-Active members to go and visit from President White. The second one we went and saw was great. Sister Lemrabot, we knocked on her door and she looked a little confused as to why we were there but she let us right in. We talked with her for a while and she told us the reason she hadn’t been coming was because she had been offended and didn’t want to see that person any more. We kept talking and asked about the experiences she had in receiving a testimony of the Book of Mormon as well as when she got baptized. The spirit was there and we talked about Sacrament and miracles and then Elder Vest asked her if she would come back to church on Sunday and she said "Ya, I was told before that I needed to stay there. I will be there" I couldn’t help but smile and laugh because it was the easiest someone has ever just accepted that they needed to come to church!
Conference was awesome. Its cool to see as I actually learn how much the gospel means, it means more to hear them speak. Instead of being forced to watch it I actually want to watch it haha. Kinda funny. We went to the mission home and watched a session with President and Gary there. He really enjoyed it. It was awesome for him to come!! The others sessions we were at the branch building. Have I told you before that we meet in an old dentist office? We only have like 30-50 members. Its way different than in Madison.
Elder Vest is an awesome missionary, he will be fun to learn from the next few weeks. He is from South Jordan area. He is super good at talking to people and teaching in groups and things like that. He is really motivational so President wanted everyone to be able to learn from him his last 6 weeks. This week we are traveling to Shreveport and Monroe to go to Zone meetings.
Love you all!!Elder Larsen
