This week was full of interesting experiences. It started on Sunday when i was wondering what i should be doing to be better at teaching and our bishops counselor Brother Webb said << Your too Quiet. There's a spirit when you speak, so speak up! you have such depth and you have something to offer. >> And I thought <<#answer Madison. You have something top offer!!!! So BE BOLD!!>> then i got the opportunity to speak in church (how they do this is EVERYONE prepares a little talk and then they announce who will speak from the pulpit at the beginning of the meeting. I kinda saw it coming. ) So i talked about Faith. Faith is an Action word and Requires us to Try our faith before we can experience miracles. we have to hope. I Love the story in the Book Of Mormon about the Brother Of Jared because not only did he have faith enough to see Gesu Crist ( Jesus Christ) but also faith to set sail with his family away from his home and not really know where he was going. He Trusted and Had Faith in The Lord to guide him to a promise land (or a better place)
WE also got to hear Sunday from the President of the Quorum of the 70 (whose name escapes me) the message i got from him was that I am ALWAYS a representative of Christ and the Church. So Everyone I meet - Including my companions, members of the church, and strangers - should feel His Love through me. and you don't really Need anything to testify of a loving Saviour, just Faith, Hope, and a smile!
Another cool thing was we were preparing to teach Radu the other day and we weren't sure what to teach so we did some personal studying and came together and the things we were guided to search and find - especaly the scriptures- were just what he needed.
Scripture of the week is in Alma Capitolo 34
