November 18, 2013

This week was up and down, but the negatives were nothing due to the awesomeness of the spiritual side! Tuesday we were heading home from an appointment up in Georges Plain, it’s about a 45 minute bike ride there, and Elder England blew out his tire. All the shops were closed so I tried to tow him and hold the bike! Drag him, all sorts of things. Elder England tried to wave down a flat bed semi and we just got chatted! So we came to the conclusion which is the first thing we should have done. Said a prayer to find out if we were suppose to find someone by walking or just need to be humbled by walking or something else and if nothing else please provide a ride for us according to our faith. The very next car after the prayer and probably the only Chevy truck in Sav picked us up! No charge and very kind! Very awesome experience to start the week off!! Wednesday was zone meeting. The taxi down was very awkward and I felt like throwing up, but the meeting was fantastic! Learned about working effectively with the branch mission leader... too bad we don’t have one currently, but soon to come!! It is essential for this work to move forward in Sav!! Thursday Elder England has been struggling to be focused on the work so he asked for a Priesthood blessing. It was an awesome experience for both of us. I don’t remember a thing I said, but words just kept coming and coming and spirit was soo very strong. Fantastic way to start the day and a bonus- we were able to use that experience to enhance the spirit at a lesson as he shared his experience! That just set the tone for the day and when I blew out the tube and tire on my bike it was just like so easy to shrug it off and say okay. God needs us to find someone else, maybe down town! And we did! Potential Priesthood! That’s what the focus is on in the branch right now anyways so very awesome!! Friday had a trade off with Elder Wignal so I could interview his candidate for baptism. She’s solid! Wish we could find some solid Priesthood like her!! Steve is back from Canada, but will soon go back in like 3 weeks!! I’ve also been working on a goal with my speech. Every time I even slip up saying freak or crap I read James chapter 3. I think it has been helping, if nothing else it really makes me sit back and think of all the dumb things I do without even realizing  I’m doing them! Time to change!!! Saturday was transfer calls. Elder Hayes is leaving to Kingston, Elder Wignal is recieving Elder Hunt. We are getting two more missionaries in Negril and we are ready to baptize Westmoreland!! And we gotta have the faith too! This is the last transfer before we apply for a Stake so we gotta build it up the best we can!! Sunday was fantastic! Got up at 4:30 a.m. to fill the font for the baptism starting at 8:30, cleaned the church and set up for all meetings! 3 baptisms in the district. Annyia and Serena were baptized out of our area! But just to show how much the Lord is moving his work forward, this is the first time we have broken the record for the mission for baptisms in one week. The old record was 10 in a week. New is 20 for the mission, 11 coming from our zone!! Very cool indeed!! This week was fantastic! Hope yours was as well!!! Keep choosing the right! The church is true and the greatest thing that will influence your life to make it the best it can be, if we apply the atonement and church teachings!!! Much love,
Elder Wilkerson
