AREA: Lone Mountain
COMPANION: Elder How
This week has been great! The biggest thing that has happened was
Zone Conference. What we were taught was that we have been teaching
wrong for so long. We were taught to always focus your lesson on the
gospel of Jesus Christ. (Faith in Jesus Christ, Repentance, Baptism,
Receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and Endure to the End). Really
good lesson to learn because it totally changes the way we teach.
We taught the Edwards family twice last week and they were awesome
lessons. Monday we taught follow the Prophet and keep the Ten
Commandments. Taught the kids (the hand signs to remember them. Went
really well as well with the lesson Friday. This was the day of Zone
Conference so the new teaching style was fresh in our mind. So we
taught tithing and fasting/fast offering and went very well. We really
made sure we were focusing on their progress instead of just teaching
them a lesson.
We also have the sister wives neighborhood in our area and one of the
sons wants to take the lessons possibly named Robert Brown. He is 18
I believe and we've talked to him a few times and trying to figure out
if we can teach him or not from President. We will see what he says.
Overall great week, my companion is awesome and I'm learning a lot
from him. My district leader is cool too, I went on exchanges with him
Saturday and it was 48 degrees and rainy the whole time, lot of fun!
No car so we were walking all day.
Love you guys and miss you!
