P-Day................................ I don't even know... We shopped and cleaned... And went out finding...
Tuesday we had another District Meeting. But, this time the Parkers (our Senior Couple) weren't there. Well, we talked about teaching effectively! We talked about how we need to listen, listen, listen! It is a must! And then on top of that, we have to ask inspired questions! Those two have to happen if we want to go any where! And then we discussed the importance of following the Prophet. I mean, we have a chosen man of God on the earth. He is the man that receives revelation for the entire world! He knows!!! So why wouldn't we want to follow him? And then we played a small game, where we had to share something funny or embarrassing and then do a dance move for everyone. Haha, it was pretty good. And then we went home and had Ward council. Our small branch is awesome! They are just so pumped about missionary work and helping us!!!
On Wednesday we met with "P" again. We taught the Word of Wisdom. We discussed the things that are "off limits" and why they are so. At first he didn't understand the reason why we couldn't drink coffee or tea, but after bearing strong testimony and reading the promises from the Lord, he said that he knew that these are bad and that he will give them up. He said they would be really hard to give up, but he would really try. And so we continued encouraging him and then we all left. It was awesome. Even though the week can be long, and things are not going how they should be and you get rejected time after time after time, it is amazing to count our many blessings. We are truly blessed in St. Pölten.
Donnerstag bis Freitag
Well, on one of the days we went down to Hainfeld and did some finding and stuff. Overall, we did a ton of walking! Haha, good exercise I guess!
On Saturday we had a lesson with "J", and he is only meeting with us for "academic purposes." We talked about the Book of Mormon and about the Gospel of our Lord. We promised and bore testimony of the joy and peace we can receive from it, and said, "well I sure hope so..." And then we continued on and then said a prayer. We can both see his heart being softened and prepared for the Lord. It is truly amazing to see what the Spirit can do.
Sunday we went to church and had our Fast and Testimony meeting. Man, this branch is awesome! They all have such strong testimonies of this church and the restored gospel!!! And then we talked about how a lot of things are going viral in the church. Well, more of an initiative with the stakes and areas and wards and stuff. It is so cool to see this wonderful work of the Lord move forward!!! And then we had a lesson with John. We talked about Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon and seeing God. In the end, it came down to whether or not he believed in the Book of Mormon. so we invited him to do that and he said he would!!!
