This past week we had the special privilege to listen to Elder Robbins from the Presidency of the Seventies in a Mission Conference held on Tuesday. Here are some of the notes that I feel the need to share with you:
1. The missionary agenda has a picture of a compass on the front. We read Alma 37:38-42 and he had us replace the word compass with agenda. He also testified to us that the agenda is a spiritual tool made by the First Presidency to help us truly be led where the Lord needs us to be. My companion and I have put this into practice after the conference by planning more slowly and listen to what the Spirit tells us in our planning sessions and the difference is too obvious.
2. He spoke to us also about the two different ways to be obedient. Nefi was obedient, but Laman and Lemuel were also obedient. They were obedient to the Lord when they left Jerusalem, went back to get the plates, cross the sea, and in many other things but what was the difference between them and Nefi? They would always murmur while Nefi would obey without delay or complain. That is the difference between an obedient missionary and an exactly obedient missionary.
Well my time has ended, but I hope that those 2 teachings will help you this week and the decisions that need to be made.
I love and pray for you all!
