June 1, 2015- Uneventful

This week we visited with a lot of members who we haven't seen for a while. We got to meet with Sue Ellen, a recent convert. She has such a strong testimony and is such a sweet lady.
We taught Shaneka, Steven, and Shanaia the Plan of Salvation. They are so sweet! They are going to be baptized on June 27th if all goes well! =D
We met a woman named Lillian who just moved into our ward. She's had a really really hard life, and is now going through cancer treatments. We just love her dearly already, because of her faith. "I know Heavenly Father is teaching me something, I just don't know what," she said.
On Thursday we helped make barbeque plates to sell for a fundraiser for scouts. It was SO fun. We spent two hours making the plates (I ladled potatos into the trays) and delivering them with the Bishop's mom. So fun!
Saturday we helped the ward at the soup kitchen. That was really fun too! Not too many people came besides the missionaries, but it was still fun! We got to make PB&J sandwhiches and soup, and then give it out to those in need. I loved it! We had so much fun.
On Sunday we got to teach third hour and all the youth in the ward about missionary work. We made the lesson into a mini MTC. =) We had them state the missionary purpose:
"Our purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end."
Then we had them practice giving away a Book of Mormon to their friends. It was so fun. At the very end we had a young man in the ward, who just got his mission call, testify to everyone about why he decided to go on a mission. The Spirit was really strong and he got a little emotional. It was powerful for the youth to see. I loved it!
Then Shea taught us about the Plan of Salvation. She did a GREAT job. She really knows her stuff. She wants to go on a mission too! She is amazing!
I love you all!
Have a great week!
