The gospel plan is simple. It is perfect. It is infinite in its’ reach. Despite its’ simplicity, one can spend a lifetime learning and living it better and better. As full-time missionaries, our mission is very focused: Preach repentance and baptize converts. Even though our purpose and focus can be summarized in five words, we have been taught and learned many lessons on how to be as good as we can be at preaching repentance and baptizing converts.
Obedience brings blessings, exact obedience brings miracles.
We cannot teach without the Spirit and without unity.
We can boldly challenge 10 people a day to baptism, using the BOM.
We want to move from a “wishy-hopey” faith to a “knowy” faith.
Teach investigators using the BOM and inspired questions; let them feel the Spirit and receive their own personal revelation.
The best finding is done while teaching; so, teach as much as you can.
Part member families are a rich source of new investigators and baptisms. Most families in the Church in Jamaica are part member families.
Read the Missionary Handbook every day.
Read PMG every day; it is inspired. Apply what you read.
Strive to be passionate about your calling. Go for that A+, and find ways to get “extra credit” every day.
Your Area Book is like the “Brass Plates” for your area. Treasure it. Maintain it. Use it!
Sing hymns in your studies, in your teaching, and in your finding. It will invite the Spirit.
We have seen many miracles in our work this week! Elder Fua and I continue to work hard everyday. I have gained with the strongest conviction that the Book of Mormon is true and it is the most correct of any book on Earth. My challenge is for all of you to Reflect on the blessing that the book of mormon has given you and then ask yourself the questions from President Nelson, What would I not have without the book of mormon, what would my life be like without the book of mormon?
There was a really funny fight that happened this last week at church... A couple of the children began to fight each other in the bathroom, so me and another missionary had to stop it. I was laughing so hard afterwards. But we made sure they knew where they were and why!
