Hello everyone! 😀
I hope all is well with all of you! things are going well for me! Transfer Doctrine came last Tuesday and Sister Kurt is now dead and gone home to the fiery California and I have a new companion. 🙂 Sister Pickard! She just arrived from the MTC so I get to train again! Woot 🙂 And this time I actually know what i’m doing so its much less scary and much more fun! 🙂 She is my second daughter and I don’t remember if I said this already but Sister Barasnky is currently training making me a Grandma with a new child… lol Missionary Genealogy.
But this week went well! We had some new investigators and finally had one of them come to church! 😀 Yay! Its been a while since that’s happened so i’m just so grateful for Roy.
Some fun things we did this week was, we went to the Catholic book store and have a very good conversation with the owner there, and when Jimmy Johns came in to give free samples to the owners instead of taking it himself he offered them to my companion and I. That was a good experience 🙂 I like him.
More on my new companion,
Sister Pickard is from Boise Idaho (About time I had a companion from Idaho!) and she is a music major from Idaho State. She has a vocal range of 5 octaves! (WOW!!) and just barely turned 19 last month. She is very excited about missionary work and we enjoy singing all the time everyday together hahaha 🙂
A miracle this week is that Morra, The non member who was in pageant that I talked to, got baptized this last week! 😀 I was invited but alas the elders here in Macomb also had a baptism and they needed me to play piano. So I did that instead. But still it was exciting and I enjoyed hearing about it. 😀 the church is very true guys, I hope you know that.
So this week I was doing a study on Authority, and From my study and from my understanding of other churches, there are only 2 churches that have any sort of claim they have direct authority from Jesus Christ. That being the Catholic Church and the LDS Church. Catholics believe that the priesthood was never lost. And the LDS Church believes that it was restored to Jospeh Smith. All the other Christian churches are break offs from the Catholic church because people felt they weren’t teaching the correct doctrine. And if you look closely at the teachings of Jesus Christ you can see for yourself the doctrine that is very present in our church. The first thing that comes to mind is the organization of the Church with the 12 apostles and the quorum of the 70. I don’t know of any other church that has that. But its exactly how Christ established it. 🙂
It was a good study!
Anyway! Its been a good week! I love you all and you’re always in my prayers! 😀 Keep studying your scriptures and going to church! 🙂 its the small and little things that bring about miracles in our lives! 🙂
