This week we spent most of our time in the church which was no fun. We have been entering in all of our records into our new area book app on our iPads.I took forever but it will be nice when it's all done. So as for more progress... there wasn't much time for proselyting. But this week will be good! :)
The First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve are putting a huge emphasis on the Sabbath Day and yesterday our ward councils started discussing the training and how our Sacrament meetings can be more sacred. Us missionaries were forewarned that this was coming and we have been taught about the doctrine in our zone conferences. In teaching our investigators and less actives we have put a huge emphasis on keeping the Sabbath Day holy and the importance of the sacrament. Last week we had planned to teach a less active about the Sabbath, we had been bugging him for weeks to come back to church and before we even started our lesson he said he would come! We were so excited when he kept his commitment and we saw him at church. The past few months have been really neat for me as I've covered multiple wards all we do all day is attend sacrament meetings. I'm grateful for the opportunity to partake of the sacrament and remember the Savior during our meetings. I love seeing and sitting by our investigators and less actives too :)
I know that what we do on the Sabbath Day is a sign to our Heavenly Father of how much we love Him. It's a day to rest from our labors and pay our devotions to God (D&C 59:9-10). It's not a day for recreation. We've been given 7 days during the week and we have one day to give to Him. I know that as we partake of the Sacrament and keep this commandment we are spiritually renewed for the week.
I hope everyone has a fun and safe!
