This week we "washed" our area! We learned on Tuesday about working with God's elects. The people that He has prepared for this moment. We can't continue visiting people who aren't ready, or who don't want anything but our friendship. So we left most of our investigators to be followed up by members and went to work! I learned this lesson through an "egg fight". The uncooked eggs were the ones who aren't ready, and they always explode in your face!
So on Friday our Zone came to Morrinhos! There was one companionship for every neighborhood. We now have 8 people that will be baptized on the 25th. Look what can happen when we cut the fluff?
I have learned a lot about cutting the fluff as my family has grown and changed this past year. I have watched (especially my mom) leave behind things that she thought were important for those things that will give her ETERNAL SUCCESS. She cut through the fluff of work, business, hobbies, for the ETERNAL SUCCESS of her family. As I watch each member of my family gain a testimony I know the power of "cutting the fluff".
My invitation for every single one of you is to look at your lives and identify the fluff. Cut to the eternal truths: FAMILY. PRAYER. CHRIST. This is where your happiness lies and that is where it will remain.
I love you all and can't wait to hear your experiences to CUT THE FLUFF.
This week I was able to be the key speaker in a fireside for the stake. I bore my testimony of how powerful it is to share your testimony online! We are all excited to share our testimonies online, and I hope all of you will be able to share a testimony about CUTTING THE FLUFF online! Use the hashtag: #cutthefluff
