So this last week was week 5 of the transfer and the week I deemed for Sister Pickard to be the Senior companion. She hated it, and I just laughed. I made her make all the decisions and plan for the day and lead the weekly plan. She told me she never wants to be anything but Junior comp. But when we talked about it this morning and evaluated how it went, she had a greater understanding of how much I do for her and what all missionary work entails. This week I’ll take the reins again but with the understanding that we are both here to do the work as equal companions not with one doing all anymore but with us both pulling the yoke together. It was a good discussion. 🙂 Thanks Spirit!
Also this week We had a lot of Miracles, namely having investigators in Member’s homes. We had one member call us on Wednesday and tell us we were late… (she hadn’t scheduled us or anything…) but lucky thing the spirit is in charge so we had the time to just run to her house and teach a lesson bring the spirit. 🙂 It was amazing! Then we also had another lesson in a member’s home about the Plan of Salvation. It was so good!! the Members really are the ones who know what to say because they’ve had these same questions before. Both member’s were converts to the church and they have such sweet testimonies of how they came to know it was true for themselves. And they also have good testimonies of missionary work. 🙂 I loved it!
We moved out of the beans home yesterday, our short stay in Pride and Prejudice was so fun! but now we are back in our normal house with the Rands. 🙂 things are good we are working hard and doing our best to follow the spirit.
This week i’ve been doing alot of study on the Sabbath Day. Mostly because i’ve run into a few people who were like “Why do you worship on Sunday? the Sabbath day is Saturday/” So Here’s my answer.
In the Old testament the Sabbath day was worshiped on Saturday, or the 7th day (Gen. 2) That is true. And during Christ’s ministry they observed the Sabbath as well. In fact today in Jerusalem from my understanding they still do their worship on Saturday. But we learn in the Book of Acts that after the Resurrection of Jesus Christ the Apostles met on the 1st day of the week also known as “the Lords Day” to remember him. (Acts 20:7) and they blessed and broke bread and remembered all that Christ did for them. So in you’re wondering why we worship on Sunday its because that’s the day that Jesus Christ was Resurrected (John 20:1) And we like the Apostles of old choose to remember him on that day. 🙂
But Also know that it doesn’t actually matter what day you choose to Worship, it could be Saturday or Sunday, as long as you are keeping it Holy and doing your part to remember the Savior you are keeping that Commandment (Bible Dictionary: Sabbath) In the book of mormon it doesn’t really specify a day of the week that the people came together for their Sabbath day. Just that they”met together Oft to fast and to pray” (Moroni 6:5-6)
I know that as we follow the commandments we will have much happier lives and that we can receive that spiritual strength we need to get through whatever it is we are facing. 🙂 The Church is true! Remember that! And also Remember Jesus Christ! He’s the one who is the Head of it. 🙂
I love you all I hope you know that! Remember who you are! Literal Sons and Daughters of God! You are Special, you are Important!
