get on my level of spirituality everyone haha. im so high up on the spirit right now ladies and gentlemen. last night i was able to attend a fireside given by our mission president, President Fenn, at the Joliet stake center. it was entitled the miracle of the restoration. i was expecting it to be a huge event since it was a multi-stake thing. here were four zones of missionaries who were inviting people for the past month. we have been announcing it in sacrament meeting for the last month or so. there wasn't a big turnout, only about 80 people, half of them missionaries. but that doesn't matter because it was such a good experience. President Fenn talked about pretty much the whole first lesson that you would teach an investigator, but with a lot more depth. he talked a lot about the book of mormon and about the prophet joseph smith. our president puts so much emphasis on these because without them we are just like any other christian faith. he explained, quite extensively, how we are not just another christian faith. we are Christ's church on the earth. the only true church. it was such a testimony builder for me. at one point during the end he was talking about standing as a witness of Christ and of the restoration of the gospel. he asked all the full time missionaries to stand up. and we all did. that was probably my favorite part. i felt the spirit so strong telling me that i really am a disciple of Jesus Christ out here on my mission.
good news!! i taught two lessons this week!! one i taught on exchanges with elder bailey, we taught someone over Skype which was awesome because it is cool to see how this modern day technology is progressing the work of salvation along. we had two investigators come to church yesterday!!! it was so cool. we are meeting with one of them tomorrow night. so things have been going well this past week. love you all, hope you have a good week!
