This has been a great week working in the Lord´s vineyard.
This week our zone had interviews with the president on Thursday. President Smith informed us that we would also be interviewing the missionaries about their area books, so that was fun. The interviews lasted the whole morning, and then President and Sister Smith ordered pizza for the zone. Then we all listened to President Smith speak for about an hour. As always, it was very spiritual. He talked a lot about the importance of working with families and in finding families.
President Smith was going to do our interviews after the meeting but didn't have time, so he told us that he and his wife would love to get to know and see San Juan(because they have heard a lot about San Juan haha), so today they came over to our house to have companionship study. It was so neat to learn from President Smith and his wife. The spirit was so strong. We all shared about what we learned during our personal study, that we do every morning before companionship study. After that, we had our interviews which also were very spiritual, and then they left!
One thing that my companion and I have been focusing on this week is families. President Smith taught about what the prophets have recently said, "That the Lord is hastening his work." President mentioned to us that the Lord is also hastening his work on the other side of the veil. The Church and its members are working more than ever with family search, to help their ancestors and to help unite families for the eternities, that have already passed on. If that is what the Lord is doing on the other side of the veil, then what he really wants is families to be together. So we know that the Lord is preparing families to make these covenants on this side of the veil too. Knowing that really helped my companion and I to trust in the Lord and to focus on families last week. We are now teaching 3 complete families! The Church is true and is the only church on this earth that has the authority to help make families eternal families.
