1 Nephi 3:7

"And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto my father: I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them."

Great Week - January 10, 2016 - Week 63

This week was full of great new investigators and awesome experiences. 
Elder Ramos and I took this week to go and try and tract somewhere we thought we wouldn't have any success. (the upper class people in the city) It turned out to be an absolute success. We found a couple of new investigators that are super smart and are very interested in the message of the restoration. 

This week was crazy busy for Elder Ramos and I. We started of by giving a Zone Training on Wednesday that turned out awesome. Then on Friday Elder Ramos, the AP's and I gave a training to the Stake President and the High Councilor over missionary work in our stake over how to work together more effectively members and missionaries. We are trying to reverse the roles of members and missionaries in missionary work here on Panay Island. Up until now the idea is that the members work with the missionaries. And that the missionaries are trying to hasten the members. But that is actually backwards. Every single ward is suppose to have a ward mission plan. As missionaries we are suppose to be able to go in to a ward or area and say "alright what can we do to help you, your goals are our goals." The missionaries in a sense are actually suppose to work with the members. So that is a little of what we talked about with the Stake President and High Councilor. 

Then on Saturday we went to the stake high council meeting where the High Councilor gave the same training that we gave to him to all the bishops and ward mission leaders. Because of course if we gave the training it might come across like we are trying to take over. So we just have to remember our place and only help where we are asked. 

But over all this week was a success. 

This morning we hiked to the top of a mountain with our district and at the top was a huge statue of Jesus. I will attach some pictures.
