Wow, it has been an awesome week. This last Tuesday we taught a lady from Russia, who spoke spanish. She is fluent in 3 lanuages. AMAZING. it was so hard to understand her spanish and almost harder to understand her english.
We helped her move out of her house. (this comprised of picking pictures of furniture off a table and putting them in a box.)
We then had a short lesson on prayer. This was all in spanish. We made an appointment for ten minutes later and left to go and prepare for alittle bit.
We then came back and got to know her alittle better.
We teach people not lessons. That is almost the most important thing we have learned in the MTC.
By getting to know her and asking how church was she told us about her wine drinking and smoking problem. We discussed with her and taught her that her body is a temple. She is now working on stopping this bad habit. We moved right into the Plan of Salvation lesson. The lesson did not run as smoothly but the spirit was so stong.
We always have the investigators read the scriptures and answer a question after. After the second scripture she could not read anymore, she wanted us to read the rest of the scriptures we had prepared. As we looked into this Sisters eyes we noticed that she had been touched by the spirit. We bore testimony about the Atonement of Jesus Christ and how he made it possible for us to live with our Families Forever. I told her about Grandpa and how I knew that I am going to see him again.
We invited her to pray about it and she said she would. She is also getting baptized and receiving the Holy Ghost on the 25th of Decemeber. :) I love TRC's and the blessing it is to have people come in and act as investigators. It is so real we don't even notice the are actors sometimes.
Anyway, hope you are enjoying the holiday season.
ps I really don't get that many letters. Even if you send me six good nights every night, that would be funny and cool.
Please do that.
Elder Chadwick says he eats a salad everyday. He says he wants to be in good shape for the missionfield.
P.S. I loved the package btw. It is great. The popcorn is good. the whole zone says thanks. Half of my district left for Peru yesterday. now we only have six in our district. It is good but I miss them. I think it snowed because they left, or God wanted all the foreign Elders to experience snow for the first time. ha ha. It is so funny to watch them pick it up andplay with it.
