"If you're not a full-time missionary with a missionary badge pinned on your coat, now is the time to print one on your heart---painted, as Paul said "not with ink, but with the spirit of the living God"-Elder Neil L. Anderson
I know that missionary work is so important because we have a great responsibility to help others come closer to Christ their Savior.
"THE SPAGHETTI STORY"
This week me and my companion were teaching a young native couple, they are amazing. The young woman text us a couple of nights before we met them telling us that she was reading the Book of Mormon and came across a scripture that talked about having spiritual gifts and how we can use them to bless others, she then asked " what are my spiritual gifts and how i can i help others?" i know that she is slowly being converted by the Holy Ghost its amazing to know that she is reading on her own and she comes to Church. The same with the young man he has a strong belief that this is true and just like Elder holland stated this last conference its alright to just believe because soon it will develop into faith...As we are teaching them all i could think of was spaghetti and i wondered why i kept thinking that they needed spaghetti??.. The lesson proceeded to end and when we were about to leave i offered to ask them if it was okay if we brought them some sauce and noodles so they could make dinner,as soon as i said this my companion sister jeppson sai" NO WAY! i was thinking the same thing through out the lesson" little did we know that they had nothing to eat, i know that the holy ghost sometimes prompts us to things we feel weird or incapable of doing but one thing i do know is that some how i had noodles and sauce at our home. I know that we were able to help them in some way. Its amzing how the spirit works through the both of us we were both thinking of this and i know it was the spirit. These young people don't have a lot and they don't have a lot of furniture or anything but what they do have is faith and they are both developing a testimony of the Book of Mormon. The young girl told us that one day she would love to serve the Lord like we are and i know that it can happen. they are both in there late 20's and we met them once again being lead by the holy ghost we felt like we needed to go to the park and there they were sitting on a bench. I know that this is true and that the gospel of Jesus Christ can transform people into something better.
Its a blessing being able to see all of the people we teach come closer to heavenly father!
I know that im living modern witness in word and deed of the divinity of this great and marvelous latter day work HOW GREAT IS MY CALLING!!
