Games, McDonalds and Missionary Work

Friends and family!
This week! has been so long! But so good too!
We had a world wide devotional for missionaries on Wednesday that was awesome! It was so cool to know that everyone was receiving the exact same message from the church leaders and Apostles! Something David A. Bednar talked about a lot was how we use the Spirit. He talked about how we as missionaries, have the responsibility to bring the message unto people's hearts, but that they only way it will go into people's hearts is through the Holy Ghost.  He talked about how it is our job to help them recognize the Holy Ghost and to create an environment and atmosphere where He can bring the gospel into their hearts! It was so good! Afterwards we had a zone conference where we talked a lot about planning more effectively and how to better do our paperwork and that was also really good!
Yet another training we had was yesterday for all the YSA and language missionaries, since we do things a little differently! We talked about the do's and don't's of YSA activities and such and it was really informative. So a lot of meetings this week, I suppose, but it's still been super busy! We've taught a lot, and we're seeing a lot of progress!

One night, we were craving McDonalds after a lesson so we went to get fries and pies and their blueberry maple pie thing is so good! I think that that's a "Good Thing to Share," (shared in last weeks post) which is a great video by the way!  If I haven't told you to watch it yet, you should. That's something we've been watching a lot since this month we are focused on missionary work and specifically, invitations! Remember to invite people to act.... and no isn't the end of the world if it's just a "No!"

There was a basketball tournament over the weekend, so that was fun! We had someone we're working with bring three friends! It was awesome even if we still lost!  It's only cuz we're a tiny ward! :P  

The YSA played board games and card games for FHE last night and some of them looked so fun! I'll have to invest in a few!

Well, I'm not too sure what else to mention for this week! We're planning a mini mission for the ward in two weeks, so that's something to look forward to... and we have a baptism that same night so lots of good things! I can't wait!
Ditzy moment of the week.... Yesterday I slipped on my sock and tripped over my humidifier!  Needless to say, I had a sore funny bone, hip and water all over the floor... go me!  But you laugh at silly things and move on.  That's all you can do!
Love you all and keep working hard! Seriously, watch some of the Bible videos... talk about powerful!

Love always,
Sister Baker
