Baptismal Date

                      My core experienced with God this week comes with working with our investigators Candice and Lekisha and also with our member present who is Bro. Bill. Last Sunday, we did visit Candice and Lekisha with our ward mission leader and then set up an appointment with them for Tuesday for a lesson with the whole family. We planned on teaching them about the Plan of Salvation as it is the best lesson that would create a great impact to their life knowing that Candice loosed her best friend and that Lekisha missed her grandma so much. We also told Bro. Bill that time about our lesson so that he would know what to do during our lesson and we also asked him to share his own personal testimony about the plan of Salvation.

                                The day came and we were able to have Bro. Bill as our member present and be able to work with him for 4 hours during that day. We went visiting our investigators and less-actives while waiting for the time to meet up with Candice and Lekisha. The time came and we then went to Candice and Lekisha's house, seeing that there is no car in the house. We thought that there is no one in the house but still we walk towards the home and knocked on the door. We had been praying for them that day with Bro. Bill that Spirit would be there with us and that we may extend a baptismal invitation with them being guided by the Spirit. We knocked on the door and we were so happy that they were just inside the house and that their car are being fixed at this moment that's why they don't have the car. We then get to know them well and introduced Bro. Bill as our member present. We then went inside the house and then started our lesson with using the 'How to Begin Teaching' and then introduced the lesson which is the Plan of Salvation. They did really asked heaps of questions to us and we were able to answer it all. Our lesson did really went great with them having our member present and also having the Spirit with us that time when teaching.

The Spirit is the most important single element in this work. With the Spirit magnifying our call, you can do miracles for the Lord in the mission field. Without the Spirit, you will never succeed regardless of your talent and ability ( President Ezra Taft Benson). At the middle part of our lesson, we invited them to come to church and the mom said 'yes' and she even invited her kids to come to church with her this Sunday. The kids also said 'yes' and I could see that they were sincere that time having the Spirit in our lesson. And at the very end of our lesson, we extend the baptismal invitation with Candice and Lekisha and with the help of the Spirit they both said 'YES' . We then set a baptismal date with them and when I look at them, they were really happy and with a smile on their faces. Knowing for myself that they want to follow the example of Jesus Christ by being baptized by someone who is holding the Priesthood authority of God.

                               This week has been great for me and my companion even the weather this week wasn't good but still the work is still on. We had been finding heaps of miracles and success in our area with the help of our ward mission leader and the ward council. My companion and I had been working hard everyday and because of that the Lord had blessed us with miracles of doing missionary work. My best practice as Teaching as Jesus taught is by teaching with the Spirit. We know that the Spirit is the most important element in everything that we do and without the Spirit we cannot teach. I also learned that we can touch people lives by sharing short, simple and powerful statements with them. Something that I will  intend to do better so that the mission will be in good shape for the new mission president is being a freely obedient missionary. Being freely obedient is not hard to do as long as you serve with all your heart, might, mind and strength for the work of the Lord.
