We took two members on joint teach this week for a total of 3 lessons. One of them was with our investigator N from Brazil. We´ve been teaching him for a few months now, and he is so in-tune with the spirit. We taught him about the Word of Wisdom this week, and it was the best response I´ve had while teaching this. He is so willing to give it a try, and believes in the blessings you can receive from stopping to smoke. Such a blessing to have a joint teach with us who was able to listen to the spirit and testify of the blessings of obeying this commandment.
We've been doing a lot of traveling on the bus this week so we decided to make a competition out of it and sit on different spots on the bus and see who can find the coolest friend. Loser has to buy the other person these strawberry gummy candies that we are both obsessed with. It´s a pretty good idea unless not very many people get on the bus, and then we are just awkwardly sitting apart and if it´s a long bus ride we just fall asleep! Yesterday I was sitting at the front of the bus and Zuster Twiggs fell asleep at the back, and as I was checking out of the bus I just tapped her leg without saying a word and we both just got off. People probably think we are crazy and are super confused. We like this game though. I´ll keep you updated on the cool people we meet on the bus :)
It has been really cool to teach with Zuster Twiggs because we've been out on our missions about the same time, and our comp unity is indescribable. We both mentioned afterwards how cool it is that we can follow the promptings of the Holy Ghost during our lessons and also be on the same page as each other.
Sorry so much this week. So many thoughts and feelings from the Holy Ghost that have been even too much for me to comprehend and write it all down. I have been so aware of the Holy Ghost this week though, and it´s been really special to see how it is impacting your life too Mom and Dad- as you learn everything you need to be temple workers :)
We talked about the Holy Ghost in Gospel Principles class on Sunday, and it was mind blowing to be in church. Everything that was said was perfect for me and for our investigators that were there, and I just was beaming with happiness the whole day. I was super thankful for the quotes you guys sent me on how the Holy Ghost affects our lives and changes our character, and I was thinking a lot about that.
Here´s a good lil quote about the Holy Ghost-
"It inspires virtue, kindness, goodness, tenderness, gentleness, and charity. It develops beauty of person, form and features. It tends to health, vigor, animation, and social feeling. It invigorates all the faculties of the physical and intellectual man. It strengthens and gives tone to the nerves. In short, it is, as it were, marrow to the bone, joy to the heart, light to the eyes, music to the ears, and life to the whole being." -Elder L. Tom Perry
Here's a picture that I took of the sunrise one morning
when I was really good and ran up and down the hallway for exercise. hah.
There was a super sweet man in sacrament meeting that came up to me and told me
"Je hebt een lieve gezicht"
which basically means you have a sweet face. haha.
Also... dinner appointments every night.
People love us.
I love you all! Thank you for your wonderful examples. Don´t forget how much our Father in Heaven loves you. Have the best week!
We are going to play Settlers of Catan and eat homemade pastries now :)
