We Invite!

Last week I mentioned having a lesson in sign language. This week we had a lesson in Persian. The difference being that I can kind of get the gist of what someone's saying in sign language, but I'm hopelessly lost when it comes to Persian. That's what happens when you bring a member to a lesson who actually speaks the language that your investigator speaks (it's pretty much never English). 

One of the big highlights from this past week was definitely Mission Leadership Council! It was probably the most spiritual and most powerful one I've attended. Our conversation was focused on what really matters: who we are and why we're here. We are children of God called by Jesus Christ to teach repentance and baptize converts. We also planned for the upcoming zone training meeting(s) and tried to figure out what the schedule would be like the next two months with our change in mission presidents and transfers and everything. It was pretty intense! The big surprise though was when President suggested that we have a zone training meeting in early June - and we should have it before transfers! That was Thursday. We're having our meeting tomorrow. So much for preparation! I'm really excited though. Instead of deciding on and assigning trainings like usual, President Patrick said we could take everything we had talked about in MLC and divide it up however we wanted to. I'll probably write about it next week. It's going to be reeeaaaaally good. :)

Hey, another cool thing happening this week is that one of the twelve apostles is coming. No big deal. We're not freaking out or anything. It's only ELDER RENLUND after all!! We're telling EVERYONE about it! 

"Hey, do you believe in Christ?"
"Yes, of course!"
"Remember how he established His church 2000 years ago and called Apostles to preach the gospel and everything?"
"Well guess what! Christ's church is on the Earth again today! He has called twelve apostles to direct His church and one of them is coming to Montreal this Saturday. Would you like to come hear him?"
"Well....I'm busy on Saturday..."


Well. I'll be there! I'll tell you all about it next Monday! Until then, I wish you all the best!
