It has also been over sick months since I have been with the squad back in the 605, #WynstoneCrewOrDie
Well to be completely honest this week was basic haha. We had almost every appointment fall through and all three people with baptismal dates were super busy this week. But it is all good becasue you just gotta throw a smile on your face and know that the Lord has a different plan for you!!
So This week I was on splits with Äldste Johnson. He is a bro dawg and totally reminds me of my soul mate Elder Morrell in Holland! #S/ONumberTwoForMorrell We were in Lund and again had another member dinner. This time the bro was wearing pants and didn't give us scorching TV dinners ;) The member had a friend over and we taught her after the dinner. That lesson was probably one of the greatest lessons were I could feel the spirit the strongest. Johnson and I were just 100% on the same page and it just went beautifully. That was a great learning experience for me and I see Äldste Johnson as the missionary I am trying to be. #topnotch
When I got back to Malmö the next day, I found out that Brinky was able to get a baptismal date for our investigator Bill on the 21st of Feb!! #touchdown
Random event of the week:
So Brinkers and I were swinging by this guys house this week, ok? Yeah and so we get into this apartment complex and his apartment is on the top floor, so naturally we take the elevator to the top. We knock on his door and he isn't home so naturally we decided to just knock the whole building before we leave. After we finish knocking (no one wanted to talk :( ) we go out the door, it was not the same door we came in but whatever, right? Wrong. So we go outside and the door closes behind us and we get locked into this little court yard thing.. there is literally no way out except back into that door we came out of buuuut we don't have a key... There are like some 8 feet brick walls keeping us in so naturally Äldste Hemmingsen says "Hold the Gospel" (I always walk around holding a Mormons Bok) and then I climbed over the fence #middleschooltrackbaby
Well on that note, we had a super good church on Sunday, Brinkypie and I decided to fast because of the weird week we had. We get to church and randomly my boy Innocent shows up and then after church one of our investigators is like "can we meet right now?" He told us that he needs to try and focus on church more and said that he knows he needs to be baptized #touchdown
Fasting brings miracles!!!!!!
So I have had a few thoughts on faith this week. In Hebrews 11 it says
1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
What is evidence of faith?? I feel that the action of someone showing their faith becomes the evidence. That desire to show the Lord you want to follow him is the evidence He needs and the evidence you need of the faith.
39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith,
I like this scripture too but I like it better in Swedish. Instead of saying "good report" it says "vittnesbördet" which translates to testimony. Through our faith we can build our testimony!
Well I hope guys have a fantastic week!!! I love you alll soooo much!!! The Church is True fellas!!!
