Elder Adamson's Letter 5/18/2015
This has been a really busy week and here´s what I´ve been up to.
We´ve been meeting a lot with S and P this week. They are golden investigators. We are really just trying to help them get past a couple concerns they have and they should be baptized soon. They are both progressing very well and they have been very involved with the branch this week. S has made good friends with a German RM who just moved in and we are very happy about that. That´s been a great support for S.
This week on Thursday we had to hop on another late bus to go to Sevilla for a zone meeting and we got there at about 12:00 and took a taxi to the zone leaders house. We had a good zone meeting and we talked a lot about repentance, and why it is so important for our investigators. We had interviews this week and President made an interesting comment about how we as agents with the freedom to chose can make no more important decision than to repent. Repentance is a decision that we all must make at some point.
Saturday was very very busy. In the morning we organized a little soccer game and Sebastian came and had a great time. At mediodía, we went to the Redds´house and had lunch with the missionaries from Badajoz because Hermana Plummer, Elder González and Elder Thomson are all going home this transfer. We had some delicious Iberian ham and funeral potatoes. After that we ran home to change our clothes and headed over to the park for a branch activity. We all had a great time there, and we ended up having a big old water fight at the end. President Deere was there with us and was talking and visiting with all the members. After that, we went over to the church for our interviews. They were great as always. My next one will be my exit interview when we have zone conference in Sevilla.
On Sunday, we had our Branch Conference and we got to hear from President Deere and his councilor, President Jiménez. They gave some great talks about continuing revelation and how there is security in following our living prophets. It was an awesome meeting and I learned a lot from the talks that they gave.
This morning I was studying in 2 Nephi 26 and I found a really interesting scripture. It´s verse 27.
" 27 Hath he commanded any that they should not partake of his salvation? Behold I say unto you, Nay; but he hath given it free for all men;and he hath commanded his people that they should persuade all men to repentance."
As members of the church and a part of the Lord's people we are commanded to persuade ALL MEN to repent. That is part of being witnesses of God in all things. We must encourage our family and friends to come unto Christ and repent. There are no exceptions to that rule. Christ wants all to partake of His salvation. That verse made me think a lot.
Well that´s about it for this week. Next week I´ll know who my last companion will be so I´ll let you know about the changes and everything. Have a great week!
