Feb. 2-Temple Trip


This past week has been incredible! Mj, thelma, and thato all passed their baptismal interview this past week and will be baptised this sunday!

We were able to get a new investigator family of sisters from a member this week. They have been to church before and love it! One of the first things one of the daughters said is that she needs to be baptised and join the church! They are super prepared!

We had a temple trip on Friday which was so amazing! I absolutely love the temple and am so grateful for the opportunity we had to go there! I am so grateful for the revelation that we are able to receive while there.

We also had a soccer tournament with a few of the wards and we had a missionary team. Needless to say the missionaries lost... haha. It was a great opportunity to get a lot of non members to a fun activity though!

I went on exchanges this past week with Elder Worton. He is such a sick guy and we will be rooming together later on when he gets back but while we were sleeping we woke up to a few people running around on our roof and then flashing their lights in the windows trying to see what we had inside! It was pretty scary, but everything is good now!

In Mosiah 7:33 it talks about being delivered from Bondage. We can look at bondages as trials, challenges, addictions, or any small thing holding us back or restraining us. In there he gives us exactly what we need to do to be delivered and I love a few of the words that are used. The main ones I like was "He will" and "According to His own will and pleasure". The "He Will" helps us to recognize that we are nothing in these situations.. there is no way to overcome them except if we trust the Lord comletely and allow HIM to deliver us. The Second suggest that patience is key, we need to be willing to be on the Lord's timetable!

I love you all so much!
