Also yesterday Nicole and Dom came to church. I, once again, was playing with Dom during sacrament meeting but not as much as last time. This time he would cheat on me so I pointed it out to him and it just was funny. Nicole feels like she is getting more from the lessons we are teaching her this time. Hopefully they will continue to build their faith unto baptism.
This week I also had the wonderful opportunity to walk everywhere on exchanges. It was so much fun. We were with the other elders in our ward and I was stuck walking. I haven't walked that much in a long time. The next day I totally could feel it. So blessed to have a car. Anyways, we were able to teach this member referral named Sandy. She is an active church goer at another church but we taught the Restoration and she said it made sense. No confusion or nothing. It was awesome.
The scriptures that I am trying to apply in my life:
41 No power or influence can or ought to be maintained by virtue of the priesthood, only by persuasion, by long-suffering, by gentleness and meekness, and by love unfeigned;
42 By kindness, and pure knowledge, which shall greatly enlarge the soul without hypocrisy, and without guile—
43 Reproving betimes with sharpness, when moved upon by the Holy Ghost; and then showing forth afterwards an increase of love toward him whom thou hast reproved, lest he esteem thee to be his enemy;
