Missionary work is the truth! I am so grateful for this awesome weekend. The day before this post I had the opportunity to confirm my sister Shawnee a member of the Church of Jesus Christ, and I had the honor of ordaining my Godson to the office of a deacon in the Aaronic priesthood. So many spiritual impressions have come in and out of my heart this weekend. I just got done meeting with a woman in my apartment with the elders and had a great time talking with her with the elders.
Pride Goeth Before the Fall
I’m thinking about tomorrow where we have planned discussions with a friend from my wife’s job and a woman from our building. And I’m tempted to pat myself on the back and I don’t because that would be prideful. But a part of me wonders why more people don’t do what I and my wife did. So I wanted to share my experience doing missionary work.
Be Open for Missionary Opportunities to serve!
One of my friends from this apartment complex needed help. I asked the Lord who next should I talk to because my sister Shawnee and Ryan were getting baptized. So I simply went to the Lord and asked who needed to be taught next. One Sunday we began driving to church and that still small voice told me that my neighbor needed the gospel. I looked at her as she sat at a bus stop and I felt that impression as clear as day.
Step out from fear and Just Do It!
Fast forward to the next week when I saw her I simply invited her to come and enjoy my friend Shawnee’s confirmation service and she accepted. Now this dear sister is taking missionary lessons now. God is so amazing! Simply ask God or what you need, and listen when he tells you what he needs you to do, and then simply do it!
