May 25, 2016 – Last week from the CCM
This week has been pretty much the same! We hit a routine this week and basically we just go to class and learn lots and lots and lots about Spanish and the Doctrine of Christ. This week has been a week of change in personal habits and a change in the way of teaching our investigadores. This week I have studied the Book of Mormón more and more deeply than ever before. I have felt my love for this gospel deepen as I read about the people in Alma forget about God so fast. This week I have also studied in the Book of Mormón to receive answers to my personal questions. My question this week was how can I better teach by the Spirit? And as I have completely lost myself in the Book of Mormón, answers to my life just keep coming.
This week I learned that it´s not about the lesson plan, it´s about what the individual needs in their life. Sometimes what we want to teach and have planned is different than what the individual needs to hear and needs in their life. The most important thing we can do as missionaries, is listen. That´s all. Listen to the individual, and most importantly, listen to the Holy Ghost.
Other than changing the way I read my scriptures and I teach, I can´t think of anything interesting that has happened this week! Winter finally started, and it´s so nice still. I get to go to the temple today for the last time in the CCM! And I am no longer sick!
One really sad and exciting thing!!! This is the LAST P-DAY FROM THE CCM. I can´t believe that time has flown by so fast! But this Tuesday I head out into the field, my first area, first compañera! It´s so crazy but I am so excited! I have already started to feel the distance from the CCM and I could not be more excited. I just get to hit the field running! I love being a misionera! Much love from Peru! Hermana Lawrence
