Hello hello everyone!!
This week was pretty rad, it flew by though. Crazy.
This week we had a mission tour! Elder Funk came to the Hyderabad zone and we had an AWESOME conference about how to better teach repentance and baptize converts. I seriously learned so much and am excited to apply what we learned in our daily proselyting efforts. What was super cool was that he shared with us a story about Josh that illustrated the importance of planning! It was super rad, I was beaming as he was sharing it (he made sure to mention "Elder Tuscano").
One really cool experience we had this week was teaching a semi-active YSA age young man, his name is Saul. Saul's family has recently been struggling with a number of things, chief among these, however, was the tragic loss of his older brother who was also the source of income for their family. His brother left behind a wife and four children. When we heard of this we were absolutely just devastated. So we went to their home. Only Saul and his father were home, but we shared with them 1 Corinthians 15:55-58 and testified with all our hearts that because of the Savior, death has lost it's sting. We also shared some of the last verses in Romans 8 to illustrate that not he, his family, nor any being that ever has lived or will live can be separated from God's love. I testify of that to all of you as well. Saul broke down in tears. He was so moved by those scriptures. It was a really powerful experience I won't soon forget.
I love this work. I love these people. With nothing wavering, I am proud to say that I am an assistant to this great and marvelous work. The love of God is real. The grace of our Lord is available for us today, tomorrow, and forever.
Have a great week everyone, love ya!
P.S. Shout out to the one and only Haley Lindsey (soon to be Hermana Lindsey) that just got her call to the Argentina Comodoria Rivadavia mission!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
