Actually, I have been trying very hard to focus on the spirit this week. Literally just pausing and trying to listen, like Samuel, in Sam. 3:10. and seriously it works wonders! For example... We put a 3 + year investigator on date and Elder Lui did it! Seriously it was awesome! We were so stoked! We had been praying so hard for R** to be on date and now she is committed! We have been trying to plan effectively but also generally so that we could be the tools of the Spirit, and that lesson truly was a testimony for me. We had a good lesson plan, and we stuck to it …kinda. But we went in to the lesson with the determination to listen to the spirit and say what it wants us to say. So we did! The lesson went 1,000,000 times better than we thought (obvi) seriously. It was sooo sick everything is much easier if we just listen to the Spirit and teach to needs rather than the needs of the teaching record. But now the trick is getting her to church 😬 Sorry if that didn't make any sense, but it made sense to me.
Love you all! - Elder Meier
