|Going Home--Sister Jenna Mettra|
This has been such a good week!! We have really been trying to focus on being more diligent and it has really paid off. We have been working so hard in the RC (referral center) to get a hold of people and teach them. We have a few great investigators in Brazil and they speak English! I have been trying to contact over 20 referrals I got who live in Brazil and we are really making progress. It is so great to see what faithful people they are and how willing they are to learn more about the Church.
We have also had some very interesting phone calls!
Joseph*, an investigator in Texas doesn't believe in pre earth life, so we shared with him D&C 138 last week and he loved it! Missionaries have been trying to work with him on this topic for probably over a year now. And he had stopped meeting with them because of it. We are really making some progress with him and we've been working so hard. I found some other great things in Jesus the Christ I want to share with him.
I have been emailing a man, Brigham* about why Christians recognize Sunday as the Sabbath day. I couldn't find any scriptures about it for a couple days. This morning in personal study I found the answer in Jesus the Christ! Because Sunday is the day Christ was resurrected, which was the first day of the week. Hence, the first day of the week became recognized as the Sabbath instead of the 7th!!! 1 Cor. 16:2! ps- He thinks Sabbath should be on Saturday. He might be a 7th Day Adventist. I'm not sure. Anyways, he's great!
This morning during personal study I was like "OMG Jesus the Christ is the best thing that's ever happened to me!" It’s true! I love this book so much. After the standard works of the Church, of course.
Well this is the LAST week of this transfer already! Going into the 3rd now. Sister Au-Yeung thinks she will be going outbound. Transfer conference in the Temple Square Mission is so crazy because you just suddenly find out on Monday that you will be leaving to a whole new mission in a whole new place 2 days later!!! Chances are pretty good that I won’t go outbound this transfer. We shall see. Come what may, and love it!!
Well everything here is great! Love you and thank you all for the support!
