Week 59, September 19, 2016


Companion:Elder Christian

Date:  September 19, 2016

This week went by pretty fast because we had Zone Conferences so we went all around Wisconsin, It was fun to be able to see all the missionaries again and get to know them better. We had great training's given to us one by our mission presidents was on the Atonement and oh man he expounded my knowledge sooo much I loved it I will talk about it later for my spiritual thought. We also had good lessons with Kealey she is doing good but also isn't haha it is really weird she has felt like she has gotten an answer that the church is true but, then she also felt like she got an answer of no the Book of Mormon isn't true. She is smart enough to know that those two answers to work together so she is really confused right now so we are working with her on that. Honestly though our lessons with her always amazing but they never go how planned which is good because the spirits takes them the way they need to go. We really need to find new people though to teach so we will be working on that a lot! We also have transfers coming up next week so sadly elder christian will be leaving me he is going home to texas in 10 days! We had this cool experience the other day with this lady while tracting. So we walk up her drive and this dog just comes bookin towards us and so ya heart dropped really quick but he didn't do anything and then this lady comes out and is like Elders! Super confused she was so happy to see us I thought it was like a member we didn't know but nope she was just a super nice lady who knows what we do she was awesome she is very catholic but open to learning more so let you know more about her! She just made our day so much better need more people like her in the world. Well ya now I will go on about what I learned from the Atonement training we got.

“Oneness is not only a matter of geography, but of identity. The issue is not just where we live, but what we become. To live with God does not assure us we will be like him. All who live in the celestial kingdom dwell with God, but only those who are exalted become as he is. The objective of the Atonement is not just to cleanse us, but to so transform our lives and our way of thinking and acting that we become like God.” (Tad R. Callister, Infinite Atonement, 26.) This quote is so amazing and so much to ponder in. He is saying geography (living in the celestial kingdom) isn't as important as your identity becoming like God. It is so cool to think that this is all possible because of the one act of the Atonement it truly shows you how infinite the Atonement is. I love you all hope you have a great week!
