bread with nutella gives you super-powers, but i highly doubt it.
That was the advice from my good friend Elder tauillilli this morning.
I called him to tell him how i was doing, and see how he was, when i
sorta complained about my comp, area, and situation. I explained that
i am working as hard as i can, but people arent doing their half of
the part, and i cant see the results.
He then asked for the magical recipe to get the super power to be able
to convice people to accept the gospel.
Power to preach, not to force.
He made a big impression on my this morning.
It doesnt matter what the results are, The Lord just wants the effort.
My ward is dying on me.... and so i have been super frustratin and it
isnt easy putting people back into order. But i came up with a plan
this week, small revelation. We are going to put a map up in the
church and have the members put a sticker on their house. Then we are
going to put an arc around the map. The book of mormon is the keystone
to our religion right? The arc is going to be of the mission work, and
the members are the keystone. We need to get the members involved
becuase they are so casual and comfortable with life.
SHOWING ON SUNDAY, PARTICIPATING OF THE SACRAMENT, AND THEN
DISAPPEARING UNTIL THE FOLLOWING SUNDAY IS NOT KEEPING THE
COMMANDMENTS. YOU MUST FULFILL.
Please everyone look and King Benjamin as an example. Mosiah 2 : 14-17.
He was the king and the profet, BUT he didnt point fingers and make
those below his authority do everything.
Lots of fingers have been pointing at us, the missionaries.
You should never point fingers unless it is pointing back at yourself.
I have learned so much, i am super stressed, but i am also happy:)
Pray for my ward, and us as companions.
Love Elder Nathan Russell Walton
