Sister P was confirmed on Sunday. It was a beautiful end to a week filled with small personal miracles. AND her husband, Brother K, has expressed some interest in the Church! We will begin teaching him this week, or maybe next? I am so happy. The ward is fellowshipping them so well. It makes my heart swell with joy and gratitude to think about her.
One thing that our mission is focusing on it having 'conversations' not just contacts. And this week, while looking up things the Bible Dictionary, I came across the word conversation. It means "behavior, way of life, or conduct." WOW! being an example of the believers, as Joshua says, in CONVERSATION has a whole new meaning. It's not just about TALKING to people, it is about becoming someone. Who we are and how we live is our 'conversation' to the world.
this week I had the blessing of being in the just the right place at the right time. nothing huge...we didn't meet any new investigators or anything like that, but just little acts of service and feeling RIGHT about where we were. first we took a picture of us in our 한복s to the guy who sold them to us. and his wife was there! we had a nice little conversation ^^ she is a member of another church. we talked to a few other people, then helped a woman coming home from a trip to China. Her bags were so heavy! she happened to live just behind the church, the street we were taking to go home! another good conversation and being able to just help somebody out.
our ward is getting the spirit of missionary work in them...certain members. I can feel it! and it is awesome. They are reading this book called "Wonderful Ward Missionaries" in English (i think) and it is so great. We took one of our investigators, Lena, to a RS activity and she was SO included. and the three of us are going to dinner at a Sister's house on Tuesday night! (Note from Sister Bassett’s mom…I think the book they are reading is The Power of Everyday Missionaries by Clayton Christensen…a GREAT book for us all to read!)
I love you all. This week I have had SO many answers to prayers. Heaven can come VERY close to our earth...as close as we will let it. I KNOW our Father in Heaven lives and loves us. Jesus Christ is our Savior. We WILL find answers as we read the Book of Mormon.
have a wonderful week! especially you sisters coming home from the cruise!
xoxo, Sister Bassett
