Sunday, the last login to our missionary portal on the internet gave us this reminder this morning.
You report to the MTC in Provo, UT. to begin your mission in day.
South Africa Johannesburg Mission
Monday, June 2nd arrived at the MTC at Provo.
Saturday, June 7th. We've had an amazing and busy week. The training and the orientation to missionary work was from the "Preach My Gospel" manual. This really brought us back to the realization that although this is our mission, it is the Lord's work and He accomplishes it through us and by the Spirit of the Holy Ghost who helps others gain a witness of the truthfulness and importance of his Gospel.
So, long-story short, we have learned over many years about the scriptures and the doctrine and the principles, now we are set on a path to learn how to properly discover how they are to be presented to different people in different circumstances in an inspired way that will bless their lives just as the Spirit directs not according to a scripted dialogue that gets in the way of them feeling the love of God and the Savior for them as individuals.
A happy, happy week. We love each other and are so happy to be companions here together for this time.
