Priesthood Power (Aug. 10.2015)

First of all, I would like to let everyone know that my convert Oscar is going to have his interview to recieve the Melchezidek Priesthood this sunday, and in the following week be ordained and sustained at Stake Conference. I'm very proud and really excited for it. He's super strong in the Church and is a benefit to the ward. It's amazing to see what good can come from accepting the gospel. Right now, he's finished the Book of Mormon and is reading Doctrine and Covenants, while reading the Book of Mormon through again another time. I'm so happy for his progress, and I'll make sure to send updates when he actually gets the priesthood. 

We also got to help the sister missionaries move into their new house with President Wilson. He's really, really cool, and pretty funny. Of course, the Elders did all the heavy lifting, and he made a lot of jokes about how the sisters were being "overworked" and stuff. It was really funny when he gave me the "oooh riiiiight" ;) eyes to me after the sisters explained to him the "important" difference between their closet for clothes, and their closet for books. They didn't understand when he said closet, because he was actually referring to their "library". He's way chill, and we all (including him and his wife) got to go to the activity in jeans and a t-shirt, which was a nice change of pace. He carries with him a great spirit, and we carried a bunch of heavy stuff up like 3 stories with him. This week, we're probably going to help the other sisters move in to their new house, which is on the 5th floor. So that'll be fun. 

We've been working a lot with less active members to search for converts, and two of the less actives we brought are going this week to get advanced to the office of Teacher. So that's really great to see some progress with them as well. 

Other than that, just a standard week. We had a lot of meetings and stuff so missionary work took a bit of a hit this week, but we're doing good. It's a wonderful experience reading the Book of Mormon so many times in the mission as well. Getting to really feel and prayerfully delve deep into every chapter and every page is unlike anything else I've ever experienced. I know that Heavenly Father has blessed us with this most wonderful testament of his son Jesus Christ. I love the Book of Mormon.
