It's been a crazy week! I'm leaving on Wednesday! Time flies.
We have been teaching REAL investigators and it has been such a great experience! I absolutely love them. They have taught us so much! Sister Faucette and I can really feel Heavenly Father's love for them. We really learned how to rely on the Spirit during our lessons! The biggest thing we need to work on is the time we take. One of our investigators, Barbara, has so many fun stories to share and we only have 20 minutes with her! I miss her already.
We prepared another lesson for someone one of our teachers taught while serving their mission. He is a less-active member and we felt that we should center our lesson around the importance of tithing. When we had our lesson plan ready to go, we read the Tithing & Fast Offerings pamphlet and we nailed it!
We had the wonderful opportunity to watch Elder Bednar's MTC devotional titled Character of Christ on Sunday. It was absolutely phenomenal. It was all about remembering to be more Christlike and everyone learned that there was something they needed to work on! It was a very humbling experience. Elder Bednar seems to love missionary work! The majority of the videos we have watched were given by him. I strongly encourage everyone to watch his talks and devotionals, if possible.
One of the elders in our district decided he was going to keep a Taco Bell burrito as a souvenir. The MTC catered a lot during our first week and one day we had Taco Bell for lunch. He had worked at Taco Bell in high school and loved it more than anything else. I don't think I have ever seen someone so devoted to making burritos. This elder kept that burrito in his bag for DAYS until it was rock hard and we were all trying to get him to throw it away. The running joke was that it was his police baton. He kept trying to convince us that he was keeping it for a snack on a rainy day. He didn't get rid of it until our teacher noticed it and realized he had been keeping it for almost a week. We've had so much fun at the MTC!
Happy Independence Day! I love you all :)
