We watched the worldwide missionary broadcast. It was really good and I learned a lot. Elder Bednar spoke on how Faith, repentance and baptism are all linked together. Faith unto Repentance unto Baptism. They also revealed the new 4 key indicators, shortened from the 9: Baptism and confirmation, Investigators who attended sacrament meeting, Investigators with a baptismal date and new investigators. These should help us stay more focused on our purpose to teach repentance and baptize converts as Elder Dallin H. Oaks said. While watching it I realized how far I still have to develop to become the type of missionary I want to be, then Elder Bednar said, "you just have to be as good as you can be and the spirit will make up the difference." That made me feel a lot better.
I weighed myself at a health clinic, I took my shoes off and with just my proselytizing clothes I weighed 165! Loco! I weighed 150 before I entered the MTC haha
Last night we had a lesson with Romeo and taught the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I was a little lost in the lesson and wasn't really understanding was they were saying so I only taught a little bit. At the end of the lesson I was asked to give the closing prayer, I had this burning desire to testify to him, so before I said the prayer I told him that I had one more thing to say. I testified that The Book of Mormon is true and promised him that if he prayed to God and asked him that it was true that he would also receive an answer that it was true. As I did this I felt the spirit so strongly and I know that he felt it too. After the Lesson we walked past the Repsol gas station and saw João from the Code 68 story. We went to talk to him, I had a hard time understanding his accent but, he pointed to my Book of Mormon and he said: "that is a good book I like that book" It is a good book because it is true I feel the spirit so strongly every time I testify of it, I know that it is true.
