Week 94: Trying to be like Alma and Amulek

So General Conference was...freaking sweet! My favorite messages were given in the Saturday sessions and Priesthood Sessions about Fatherhood and Marriage:) There were some great talks that were also given about missionaries and people who are preparing to serve. I have been thinking about some things I need to change when I come home and what will take priority in my life. I know that I cannot be doing a lot of the things I did before my mission, I just need to put the more importance to the things Heavenly Father wants me to do.

Anyway as the title says, "Trying to be like Alma and Amulek". If you read in the chapters in Alma where he is introduced to Amulek you see that they had one of the most successful exchanges we have record of. This week and also next week my companion and I have decided to not go on splits any more so we can have more effective appointments because the spirit will be stronger when we testify together. We actually almost achieved all of our goal that we set and our appointments were so much more powerful. Even though the weather is hotter than sin we are still outside and cycling to and fro to get to the appointments we have set. For some reason this week we have been talking to people more outside than we ever have before. We have been teaching and talking to so many youth that come to play futbol in the morning and also we have been blessed to share this gospel with the deaf. We met two brothers the other day that could not hear but could understand English and could write it. It was so cool just try and communicate with them with the little knowledge I had with sign language.

So the appointment of the week goes to one family that is experiencing some really tough legal problems that they are not even responsible for. The children are fine but the parents could be in some huge trouble. I went with our Branch Mission Leader Ramesh and we planned on sharing about prophets but...the spirit guided us in a different direction. I started to share one of my favorite stories about Faith and Patience and the 3 children responded "We just broke our fast 20 minutes ago and that was the same scripture that we read together before you came"(Ramesh and I had a small bro fist-bump). They ended up telling me what that lesson meant and I shared some personal stories of how my family and I have been blessed when we have Faith in our Heavenly Father and Patience with him. Such a spirit driven lesson, I don't know if it could have been better than that honestly.

I want to give a shout out to my dude Riki(Get those Red Robin points loaded up:)) 

Here is the greatest primary troll face!
