Today was our last day of Preach My Gospel training. We interviewed a less active (mock) member and then we had 20 minutes to prepare a lesson meeting their needs. It was hard to prepare that fast. Some of the senior missionaries are leaving tomorrow. We will miss seeing them and our instructors. We had fantastic instructors. They were Brother Barney (just married in August 2011), Brother Albertson (married just a little while with a 2 month old baby) and Brother Sillitoes (young and waiting for his girlfriend to return from a mission). It was a great week but a lot of work.
Here are some thoughts for this week. A new parable I give you "Thou shall be flexible so you don't get bent out of shape."
The young elders and sisters are encourage to "Lengthen your stride" the Senior Missionaries are encouraged to "Lengthen your shuffle."
We also learned a great way to teach the Law of Chastity. It goes with the song Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes.
Head - Think only clean thoughts.
Shoulder and Knees - Anything in between is off limits.
Toes - Stand in holy places
Eyes - Don't look at pornography
Ears - Listen to uplifting music
Mouth - Speak only uplifting words.
Nose - The prophet KNOWS what is best.
We had the opportunity to attend the Provo Temple this evening. When we came out the sunset was beautiful. It is great to see God's handiwork all around us.
Testimony is to know and feel
Conversion is to do and become
