We had an AMAZING ward activity this past week. We called it CCM para
Los miembros (MTC for members). One of each companionship was assigned
a topic to teach about for 12 minutes: inviting, fellowshipping,
Facebook, and how to begin teaching. At the beginning the members
received their "mission call" and we split them up based on their
assignment. First we started with an introduction from Bishop Dickson
and then watched the talk "The First and Greatest Commandment" by
Jeffery R. Holland. It was so amazing. The Spirit in that room was
incredible. I'll never forget that feeling. It was like the ward
members were learning this for the first time. After the talk ended,
Bishop looked and me and just said "Wow."
Then we split into our workshops. It was so much fun teaching the ward
members! We talked about how the only indicator of success as a member
missionary is that you invite! Abinadi didn't have any baptisms, but
he invited everyone, even the wicked king and priests! The members
were so engaged and super excited to learn more! Then at the end
President Morgan came and talked about the Doctrine of Christ and how
the real reason we do missionary work is love. It was so amazing.
Later the Bishop told us that it was the best activity the ward has
had in 20 years. I loved it!
Transfers are next Wednesday and seeing as I'll officially be finished
with training then, I could definitely be transferred, but I really
hope not! I still feel like I have no idea what I'm doing... WHOOPS.
Member missionary tip of the week:
USE MORMON WORDS
"How was your weekend?"
"It was great! I went to Relief Society and learned so much about how
to help my family!"
"Oh, what is Relief Society"
BAM. They asked you. SO TELL THEM
I love you all, have a great week and share the gospel with them!
