No more conferences, other than zone trainging onee a month, but this week our STL is coming to our district meeting to give a training. it should be pretty great. # NotTheOnlySisters :)
This week has been really good. we've been able to see success, despite the challenges we faced, with Sister Polakoff being sick all week.
on Monday, we were able to visit with a part member family that hasn't had the missionaries over in a year. the wife was going to get baptized, but for some reason stopped meeting with the sisters. we were able to meet with them and it was super awesome! we are hoping to be able to go back soon and watch Meet the Mormons with them, and start teaching them the lessons again, to help her progress to the temple (St. George is her favorite, and "where she is going to go").
Tuesday we had the mission tour meeting, and I learned a lot. Elder Snow was great. we are really working to implement the principles of involving the ward in the work. After the meeting we went on exchanges, and I was able to help Sister Short to focus on what matters most in missionary work, and how to study better. I was grateful to be a good example to her, even if I sometimes have a hard time with my own studies.
on Thursday, we had a SUPER productive day. we had dinner with a bunch of members, because there were several birthday's in one week, and one of them invited a non-member. we offered to watch Meet the Mormons with her, and we are going to meet with her this week. later that night, we were trying to meet with a family, and felt impressed to go across the street to a former investigator and her family. she came with a member to our movie night last week. they invited us in, and since they speak Spanish, we offered to come another day and watch the movie again with them in Spanish. they also offered to feed us on the 16th! it was a great visit.
Because Sister Polakoff has been sick, and is struggling to get better, we didn't teach very many people this week, but the lessons we did have were very effective, and I know that the trials we are facing are trying to stop us from seeing miracles. something big is just around the corner! :D
christmas.mormon.org has a great countdown to Christmas! I'm so EXCITED!!!!!! :D
