New Mission President

Hello Everyone!

This week was crazy! We had a million things to do! Tuesday we had to do baptismal interviews. Thursday we got to meet our new mission President and on Sunday we had interviews with him. He and his wife are really kind.

Sunday my companion and I had to teach Relief Society again. Third time’s a charm. Right? We then had a really long lesson with an old investigator and then we visited a family who the mom didn’t come to church because her tooth was hurting her. We talked about self reliance.

This week I learned that we need to always read the scriptures in their context. We had an ami who tried to prove us in the scriptures but he wasn’t reading the entire context.

Love you all,

Hello Everyone,

This week was really good we got to teach with two of our branch missionaries on Thursday and on Friday it was really cool.  Wednesday we got super lost looking for a person’s house. Like we were so far away that a lady told us we would never get there on foot. She told us we had to take a motorcycle. Missionaries can’t so we walked and well eventually we did make it! We walked around for like 2.5 hours looking for this place! In our district meeting we talked about the Sabbath Day Observance. Preach my Gospel says “When a community or nation grows careless in its Sabbath activities it’s religious life decays and ALL aspects of life are negatively affected.” I tried to think about that and I know it is true if we are not careful we could be hurting ourselves and others if we do not do our best to keep the Sabbath day holy.

Love you guys have a wonderful week,

Elder Stephens
