This week was a good one! I'm starting to get used to the area and we've been staying busy! This week we met several less-active members and got to know them. It's been wonderful to teach and love these people and feel the Spirit of the Lord as we do so. This gospel will truly bless all those who heed its message.
On Friday we had Zone Meeting! It went really well! I'm in the Goldsboro Zone now, so it was nice to meet all the different missionaries. This is the first Zone meeting in 2015 that hasn't been in the Kinston East Zone! We talked about helping investigators and members keep commitments and I was truly edified.
This week I thought a lot about Spiritual things and temporal things. In Matthew 26:41, the Savior says, "Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." What a true statement! There is great power in strengthening our spiritual stamina and relying more fully upon the Lord than upon the arm of the flesh. As we do the simple things like scripture study and prayer, our Spirits will be filled and we will receive strength to live our lives as the Lord would have us. He is so merciful and loving and He is waiting with open arms to help us in every aspect of our lives.
I love you all! Have a scripture-filled week!
