It has been a good week. We saw a lot of success. Tuesday I had an exchange with the Rockledge Elders, Elder Booth came down to Melbourne with me, it was my first exchange where I was in charge of what we do cause it's my area. So we started to try and meet less-actives and had some success. We had a really good lesson with Brother and Sister K. Who had us over for dinner. We taught a lesson based on the #becausehelives video. And talked about having faith in our savior. She told us a story about how she was baptized at like 30, went inactive for like 35 years and had her records removed. And then started to go to church again. She was baptized again by the same missionary that baptized her 35 years ago and when she came up out of the water he said this one better stick haha. It was a very successful exchange.
Wednesday we went around trying to see some more less actives. And one of the active members in or ward told us to go to this restaurant where the owner is a less active, and he would love to pay for our meal so me and my companion went in there and ate and talked to him but he didn't pay for our food haha. Then we just tried to see some more less actives. For dinner one of our members took me and my companion to Olive Garden, the members here are just so awesome.
Thursday we had district meeting, and after that we went to our area beach side and tried to find more people to find and teach. We didn't see much happen on Thursday but Friday was a really good day. Friday is our weekly planning and we were calling some of our potential investigators. There was this one that we called and she told us to come over as soon as possible so we went and talked to her. She is this really nice lady that Is searching for something In her life and she is very open to learn more about the gospel. We taught her the restoration and had a pretty good lesson. After that we were already in our area so we decided to go and see this other investigator Mrs R. we met her like 3 weeks ago and have been trying to have a lesson with her. We dropped by and had a lesson with MRS. R and her husband and son. We got to know them and taught the restoration and had an awesome lesson we got the father to say the prayer at the end it was way cool.
The B's family, We finally were able to have another lesson with this family. After 2 weeks of them canceling on us we just dropped in and taught them the importance of the Book of Mormon in our life and the restoration. We read the introduction to the Book of Mormon with the whole family and sister B said she has never read that so she was happy and we are just seeing them progress each and every lesson that we have with them. They are such a cool family and are just fun to be around.
Saturday I went on an exchange with Elder Hansen. I went to Viera and had a really good time. When we got up we went over to this members house and helped him remodel his kitchen. So we got to demolish a lot of stuff it was pretty fun. It was nice to do some service and other work besides just missionary work haha. Then we had another member that took us to Chili's and as always the members are really great.
After that we went and saw Brother N. , he is the guy I met when I went to Viera the first time we had just a short lesson about our favorite scripture. And we just shared some scriptures one of my favorites is, 2 Nephi 32: 2-3 2. Do ye not remember that I said unto you that after ye had received the Holy Ghost ye could speak with the tongue of angels? And now, how could ye speak with the tongue of angels save it were by the Holy Ghost? 3. Angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore, they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do. I really like this scripture as a missionary because If we study hard and learn we will be able speak the words of Christ. I really enjoyed this week and learning more and more everyday.
