The Music Of Gospel

           " For my soul delighteth in the song of the heart; yea, the song of the righteous is a prayer unto me, and it shall be answered with a blessing upon their heads" ( Doctrine and Covenants 25:12 ). This week has been great for us with my companion even though the weather this week is not that good but still we have the perseverance to do the Lord's work. Something that we do as companionship is that every visits that we had with our investigators, less-actives, part-member families and active members in the ward is that we sing them a song from the Green Hymn book or from the Children's Songbook. It does really help us to have the Spirit with us in teaching and helping us to testify of the truthfulness of the message that we taught with them. The music of the gospel can only be taught by gentleness, long-suffering, persuasion, kindness, and meekness as what it says in the scriptures.

My core experienced with God this week comes with working with one of our investigators who is also a referral from one of our investigators and they live in the same street together . When we first meet this man, we were able to talk with this man and his wife as well and we were able to get to know the family as well. We taught them with using the how to begin teaching and we also taught them a little bit about the Restoration and the Book of Mormon. We were able to set up an appointment with them again and we then give them the pamphlet and a copy of the Book of Mormon and we then invite them to read and pray for it.

When we visit them again the other week, the whole family is not home but the father was there and we were able to talk with him again. We were able to have a lesson with him and we told him of what's our purpose as a missionary. He then raised a concern with us that he doesn't have that kind of great faith with Jesus Christ because of the problems and challenges that they had been facing right now as a family. He also told us that he got baptised but it doesn't really matter with him. We then taught him about having faith in Jesus Christ and how opposition is a part of our life in order for us to learn from our mistakes and gain more experienced. We also brought with us a DVD about " Finding Faith in Christ" and we gave it to him and invite him to watch it with his family supposing that he has only a small tie with us. We then continued to help him to gain his faith on the Lord Jesus Christ and the Spirit was also there in our lesson testifying of the truthfulness of our message. We also share of the gift of repentance and that through Jesus Christ's Atonement that we can be saved and be fully healed. At the end of our lesson, we asked him if we can sing a song with him and he then said 'YES'. We then sing a song from the Primary Children's Songbook which is entitled " I Feel My Saviour's Love" and the song did really touch his heart that he even cry and knowing that he felt the Spirit so strongly on that time with us. We then close with a prayer that time and invited him to pray to his Father in Heaven and to come to church this Sunday.

It was a great experienced that I have that time too and something that I learned is that message that we share as missionaries can also be taught by way of singing . It does really help the investigators to feel the Spirit and to help them more edified with the Spirit. One important lesson that I've learned in my lesson is to increase my love to the people that we are teaching and to focus myself with them rather than focusing with myself.
