Object Lessons

This week was pretty sweet.  The less active/part member family we're working with has an eight year old son who is preparing for baptism.  They asked us to teach some simple principles in order to fully prepare him for next month.  Elder Flake and I have had some fun preparing lessons.  We taught prayer using sandwiches, which was pretty fun.  The bread (Heavenly Father - Jesus Christ) is always the same, but the middle (Express gratitude, ask questions, ask for help, etc.) can change according to what you feel.  We also taught the Restoration using plastic cups.  The kids really understood the concept of the church "breaking down" and then getting "rebuilt".  

We also got to teach our investigator Mary again! She had read up to Alma 22 since we last taught her a lesson (we've done some service since then) which is heaps awesome! She felt the Plan of Salvation just made sense and really enjoyed it.  It was such a good lesson.  

We had a super great Sabbath day yesterday with a lot of families coming to church.  With the Sisters in the ward now too, we've been able to work with a lot of less active families and a whole bunch came to church yesterday.  

Looking forward to another exciting week, especially with Zone Conference this week! 

Love you heaps,
Elder Muh 

- 2 Timothy 3:15
"And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus."
President Harold B. Lee once said that greatest of the Lord's work you will ever do is within the walls of your own home.  I am so grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who blessed me with a family that was strong in the Gospel.  Since I've been out, I've realized how privileged I was to attend church every Sunday, learn about the basic principles of the Gospel, and be able to attend church activities.  Many youth these days don't want to go near religion, and that is why it's so crucial that we start now, because the home is the place where it will all happen.
