Semi-Long Week

Hey everybody!

Hope you all had a great week. I haven't really heard from many of you but I hope everything is going well.

This week was a bit of a longer week. We had zone meeting and interviews back to back this week. We sort of got rebuked at interviews because our work was not matching the goals we were setting. He also told us that we were taking over the role of the wards in the less-active work. Definitely felt rebuked during that time but then again everyone else did as well. It was really good to get some direction about what our purpose really is and what the purpose of the members is.

So we did a lot more tracting this week and ran in to some pretty interesting people. We met a few Ukranians that didn't really speak english very well so that was pretty fun trying to talk with them.
For some reason whenever someone is struggling to speak in english, I revert to spanish, even if they don't speak spanish. It doesn't make much sense but its pretty funny.

So some of the training that we had was about taking the time to ask inspired questions. Later on this week we tried that with an investigator that has been a little hard headed and her less-active husband. We had planned to talk about obedience but one of the first questions I asked was about the sacrament and we went from their and the lesson went pretty good. We have been taught about asking inspired questions before but after time you tend to forget some of the past trainings. I feel like it will help a lot to teach and rely on the spirit more.

Hope you all have a great week and you see tons of miracles! and please write me, I would love to hear how you all are doing!
