So I had one of them days this week that went alongside of the exchange with Stake President Miller and Elder Fred Parker III, we went on an exchange with none other than our beloved MISSION PRESIDENT President Andersen. Even with the additional pressure, we passed the test fairly easily. With him we visited an investigator family (whom we built the ramp for the disabled son for), a part member family, as well as a less active part member family. The visits went really well and i felt proud to show off our work to him. Challenge achieved: Exchange with Mission PresidentIn the District Meeting, i gave a training. I emphasized the point in the "Power of Everyday Missionaries" book by Clayton Christensen, which was also emphasized by Christ himself: FEED MY LAMBS and SHEEP. Clayton inquired of the question which should be on every missionary/members mind: WHO DIDN'T COME TO CHURCH TODAY? Based on that question is where change can occur.
PHOTO is of a foundation to a house that got completely obliterated by a tornado about 3-5 years ago. The Motters live less than 1/2 mile from this. Hope a tornado doesn't come any closer, this is close enough for me.
Till next time
