This week was good! We taught one of our investigators, Nohel, about the importance of church. He believes that he only needs to go to church three times a year to have a strong relationship with God. We shared with him Mosiah 13:16-19, which says….
16. Remember the Sabbath Day, to keep it holy.
17. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work;
18. But the seventh day, the sabbath of the Lord thy God, thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates;
19. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is; wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
He better understood the commandment to give Sunday to the Lord. Sadly, he didn’t show up to church on Sunday. The Stake President and our Ward Mission Leader went by a few weeks ago and invited him to church and he also didn’t show. 😦
We also started teaching a 12 year old girl named Charley. Her mom is a member and she is super involved in the youth activities at church.
Oh yea, and it is official, I am staying in Jurupa with Sister Thomas the last 6 weeks of my mission. It is crazy how time flies! Although I still feel like I’ll be a missionary forever! 🙂
This week is get to start “my plan” which is a program to help missionaries transition back to normal life. Whoohoo 😉
Hope you all have an awesome week!
Love, Sister Meza
