Elder Haynie Came

Pamilya ko,

So this week was crazy. We had four extra companionships sleep over at our apartment on Thursday, making us 12 sisters in all. Sister Allegretti (one of the sisters in my district in the MTC) actually got to our area early and we got to work for a bit in a three-some. It was great. It was like she instantly improved. When we left the MTC we had no idea what we didn't know. Hahaha Then the next day we attended mission tour training by Elder Haynie of the Seventy and Area Presidency. It was great!

He talked about Elder Oaks' talk to missionaries in January and made a special comment that we needed to teach repentance. Yesterday, that is exactly what Sister Anunciado and I did. We taught a pretty hard lesson about repentance to someone who is in a.....captivity sort of situation. Not going to give the details, but let's just say it's really hard for them to repent. But I KNOW it will set them free.

He encouraged us to connect investigators and recent converts to the temple. We have been teaching a lot of Temple and Family History Work lessons to recent converts lately. I know that family history work will not only turn their hearts their ancestors, kundi sa Dyos man.

He started out by telling a story called A Five Dollar Job. Maybe you could look it up. Promise it is worth a read. I want to be a five dollar missionary.

Wish I could write more.

Hope you're all doing well!
Sister Marriott
