Weekly Mission Report – Mar 7th

Hey Everyone,

This week has flown by.  I hope ya’ll have had good one as well.  We have done a lot of service this week.  With the masters coming up people have been getting their houses ready to rent.  People pay big bucks to rent houses here during the tournament.  We helped one of the families in the ward get their house ready by moving furniture, building furniture, and cleaning up a bit.  It’s a pretty intense process.  We got some awesome Mexican food after though.  That was super good!

We also had another lesson with the less active girl that we have been trying to help.  She is 24 years old and really wants to find the right church.  We have been talking to her about conversion and the role the Holy Ghost plays in that.  It was a great lesson for her.  She asked tons of great questions and you could see stuff clicking in her mind.  It was really cool.  My companion and I both talked about the spirit and how we have seen it affect us. Then we helped her understand how it can help her in her life and she definitely was feeling the spirit.

Later in the week we met with our friends who have a strong belief in Election.  Usually our discussions are really good and we all ask lots of question and share a bunch of things. This past week though it got a little intense.  Never to yelling or bashing but I think both sides were getting a little frustrated with each other.  Both sides said things that made the other sides very frustrated.  It was all good though.  We have all learned so much from these discussions.  I have learned more about the Bible during these discussions we have had with them, then I have at any other time.

The following day we met with a guy who used to believe in the same stuff as this couple does.  He has recently joined the church and so we always tell him about our visits.  He helps us a lot by telling us where they are coming from but also how they misinterpret the Bible.  He is our secret weapon and he loves it to.  We always have great lessons with him.

Anyway, overall it has been a good week. I am super sore because we played soccer on Saturday for several hours.  I was barley able to walk yesterday.  I had to pick my legs up to get into bed.  It was so embarrassing.  I don’t know why I was so sore.  It has been awhile since I have been that sore.  Hopefully ya’ll are all doing well.  Have a great week!

Elder Goodsell
