September 23, 2013

As for the mission it was as great week!  We had 2 baptisms on Sunday right after church and we had a great turn out of members.  There weren't enough chairs in the relief society room! there were a bunch of youth that showed up to support Freddy who is 15 and so many people came and gave them both a hug and welcomed them.  It was such a great experience!  We had ward conference as well and the stake president gave a talk on the holy ghost.  It was a great talk helping us to remember how great that gift truly is.  Then during the 2nd hour they had a ward counsel meeting with the stake pres. The bishop invited my comp and I in for that.  It was a great meeting, also talking about the holy ghost and receiving and following revelation.   Our ward is really striving to become member missionaries.  The bishop has taken action and had a fireside with the ward counsel on missionary work.  He had us come and teach them how to role play and invite people to meet with the missionaries and to come to church.   We taught them how to talk about the gospel with their friends and helped them understand that as members you don't need to answer their questions and even if you can you shouldn't because that is not your calling.   You should always try to include the missionaries in every opportunity to answer peoples questions about the church.   Always follow the spirit as for what to say and to help them have a desire to learn.   What a blessing to have direct guidance from our Father in Heaven on everyday matters and most of all the opportunity to invite others unto Christ.
Love Elder Jach-Goates
