Week #40 - June 1st, 2015

Hey Everyone! 
HUMP DAY for the Mission!

This week was awesome! The Virginia Richmond Mission is receiving Ipads tomorrow, so Friday we had a mission Wide Training in Richmond! So we drove down with the Grovers ( a Senior couple) and spent most of our day just being richly fed and blessed by the trainings of Elder Zwick of the Seventy and Elder Hemmingway the director of Proselyting for the church!  It was the same training that Elder Clarke gave us at Temple Square when we received Ipads, but I felt so blessed to hear it twice and from two different Seventies! The training focused on the spiritual aspect of using technology and how we need to sanctify our hearts and become pure to use them without problems. So true! It was really powerful and motivated me in all aspects of missionary work, not just ipads. 

Mission Wide Conference with
Sister Johns and Sister Boheme 
We found a new investigator this week! We went to his house and he is big burly guy, I was kind of intimidated, but he is soooo nice! We taught him the restoration and he accepted baptism! After the lesson he told us it makes sense why the mormon missionaries go to peoples homes, so they can learn about this! haha Yesss thats exactly right! 

Wednesday we were walking out of a dinner appointment and a older couple in a car waved to us and motioned for us to come over! They were members who use to be mission president and Wife in finland a long time ago! She then told us her Dad was Ezra Taft Benson!!!! We were blown away, we just got to talk to a prophets daughter! She was sooo nice and just had such a strong spirit about her. She said, "He is looking down on you right now and is so proud and happy!" Perfect timing that we were able to meet her!

Saturday night we had planned to tract because lots of people were home, but I had an impression that we needed to go visit a less active in our ward. She is an elderly lady who we use to visit her but she showed no interest so we backed off
Dinner With the Haights!
There daughter is serving in
SLC Temple Square!
for a few weeks. When we got to her house she was sooo happy! She said she had been wondering why we haven't come by and missed us. She went on to tell us about some struggles her family has been going through and how unhappy some of her relatives are. As she was talking to them she realized the happiest time in  her life was when she was going to church, church people are happy. haha. That She needs that back in her life! It is so true that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only way to true happiness!!!!

Hope you all have a good week! 

Much Love, 
Sister Sughroue
