Week 52

January 30, 2017

"“The Lord works from the inside out. The world works from the outside
in. The world would take people out of the slums. Christ takes the
slums out of people, and then they take themselves out of the slums.
The world would mold men by changing their environment. Christ changes
men, who then change their environment. The world would shape human
behavior, but Christ can change human nature." -Ezra Taft Benson

Hey yall!
This was a good week. We have been working hard here in St Johns River
and I am feeling pretty happy! The members here are amazing. We have
dinner every night and we have been super busy with going through our
area book and contacting all of the investigators we haven't met yet

This week we had my first Zone Meeting and it was a little stressful
since it was kind of intense. We had to figure out catering for all
the missionaries for lunch and also setting up the equipment for the
missionary broadcast after the meeting and everything so it was a
little hectic, also we found out that the assistants to the president
have been sending out texts and stuff but always sent it to the
Bartram Trails phone which nobody has right now, so we were completely
out of the loop on what we were supposed to be doing. Luckily the Zone
Leaders let us know. They are really great and include us in
everything. We have been trying to use technology more and set up
skype lessons with people so we practiced by having a skype meeting
with the Zone Leaders. It was so weird! This technology thing is going
to take some adjustment... hahaha I feel like an old person.

But in Zone Meeting we trained on the Gospel of Jesus Christ and how
we can apply that to our teaching and finding. It was really great to
focus on that this week and work on applying the basics. I love my
Savior Jesus Christ. He taught so simply and powerfully. He is the
perfect example!

But the worldwide missionary broadcast was so wonderful. We have some
major changes! But it is exciting to have changes that will further
the work.

I love Sister Tullis, we have way too much fun together! She is a
hoot! I am laughing 24/7 with her as my companion. We decided we are
probably going to be companions for a long time since we whitewashed
in together. 

Ignore that I look weird in this picture and just focus on the hedgehog heehee

 Well, have a great week! Love yall!
Sister Caton
