We had an experience while eating in a burger place, a guy sat beside us and asked about Mormon Doctrines. So, we thought he was interested and we talked and shared about how families can be together forever. But it turned out he just wanted to disprove what we shared.
He told us "If you can show me a scripture verse in the bible where God allow the families to be eternal, I will join your church!"
We shared the scripture verse where Jesus Christ gave the Priesthood power to Peter to bind families on Earth and in Heaven (Matthew 16:19)
And then he was shocked and was silent and just stop talking.
I have learned that even if we are given a lot of evidences, answers, or even taught the right doctrine-- we are the one who choose liberty and eternal life, through the great Mediator of all men, or to choose captivity and death, according to the captivity and power of the devil.
Even if someone can affect our decisions, it is us who will make it. Even if someone hinder you from keeping or following a commandment, it is our choice. And our choices makes our destiny.
Then, we just had our Zone Conference. We got to hear talks and workshops from our leaders. Sister Maughan talked about how to help our investigators to overcome addictions. President Maughan talked about teaching the people their needs and not just to teach the lesson itself. The Assistants to the President talked about adjusting our lessons to the needs of our investigators.
As you can see they are all about improving our teaching skills to make us better missionaries and be a Preach My Gospel missionaries.
We had fun and of course, full of Spirit and motivation to work in our area and help the people there
I don't have any nice conclusion in my post, at the same time I'm running out of time haha.
So I'll just end it with Extras...
