Saving Souls and Volleyballs

On Tuesdays, we go and play volleyball for a stake relief society
activity. This past week, I made a lot of saves while playing, and the
stake relief president made the comment that I not only save souls,
but I could save the ball too haha

Anyways, this week was good. It started off well Monday night when we
contacted a member referral. She let us right in, and we were able to
teach the Restoration. She even said that she wanted to read the Book
of Mormon. She was like, "if you believe it's true, I'll read it."

We also had a discussion with someone who used to be RLDS. We had an
in depth discussion about the doctrine of the Plan of Salvation. Never
have I had to use so many scriptures from the Bible (and the Book of
Mormon) about the individual points from the Plan of Salvation. She
wasn't really interested, she mostly just wanted to ask questions.

On Wednesday, we were able to go to the Visitors' Center with the
women of the Sunny Mesa ward who are 60+ because they were having an
activity and we tagged along. Sometimes, it's just funny to hear some
of their conversations and things they say (like trying to figure out
whose cane is whose 😂).

Thursday, we were able to learn really what is holding Heather back
from baptism. So we are working on that now. Friday was a typical
FridaySaturday, we did service where we cleaned dishes for 2 hours.
Never have I seen so many dirty dishes. Have you ever seen moldy Kraft
mac n cheese? Because I now have. Don't want to again though. We were
also able to meet with our investigator Emily again finally. It went
pretty well.

Sunday, there was a homecoming talk. It was a really great talk, and
it was so perfect for Heather. We really hoped she was listening and
took it to heart.

A scripture that was shared on Sunday was Jacob 2:8—"And it supposeth
me that they have come up hither to hear the pleasing word of God,
yea, the word which healeth the wounded soul." I want to add my
testimony that the word of God and faith really do heal a wounded
soul. Whatever challenges we have, the word of God helps us.

Love y'all! Have a fantastic week!
