Haha SO MANY Referrals this week! Elder Morse and I have been trying to work with members in getting referrals....but more then anything it has been our recent converts and investigators who are getting anyone and everyone to come in and learn with them. It has been SO COOL!
Our most prime time recent convert is just going ham with sharing the gospel. He has such a burning testimony about this work, and about the truth of this church, and wants to share it with everyone. Through that, he has invited several families to come and see, and then those families with only having been taught once, go out and invite everyone and their dog to come and learn.....WHAAAAT!!? Yeye yeye :)
Haha Mahamasina is SO Cool! So many families to focus on and to just love....What better place can one be in than here....Besides with family and with your sons and daughters....BUT SERIOUSLY! SO DOPE!
On Sunday we had ward conference, and President Efano came to preside. During that time the 1st counselor gave a wonderful talk about being self reliant spiritually and physically and that according to handbook 1 and 2 of the church every person is responsible for his or her own self reliance. Such an incredible talk!....And it helped a lot when he was talking slow because I was translating for Elder and Sister Wooley....Haha Translating! Whoap!
Seriously....I can't think of a better place I could be....Who cares about going to a beach province or being in province...When you have some of the most incredible families on the planet...in your area...and you have the opportunity to participate in God literally shaping them and molding them into the person they are Ment?.... meant?... to be. I am so grateful for the relationships I have obtained here on the mission. Ony and Ando in Manandona, and President Mampionona and Sr Emma in Antsirabe and all the ridiculously cool people in Mahamasina.....My soul is literally just full with gratitude for all the blessings and change that has occurred during my period of stay here. I have seen people change from the bums of the earth.....To a far better type of bum, and then to an almost normal person....kind of....haha...and then into someone completely and utterly different than who they ever thought they could be. WHOAP!! Missions rock!
Well, the work is going going going and I do love it here. It's been a real blessing, and a true time of healing and peace for my soul through the last year and a half war of apostasy. I know that God put me here for a reason, and I see that for myself and then also for the members that are here. What more proof does one need to have to know that God is in this work. Tsy haiko!
Well I love you all. Hope you are doing well, and I am praying for ianareo aby, so Talk to you soon!
Love Elder Lehr
