Wednesday was MLC in Crestview Florida and that was super awesome as usual. President and the others that taught did a great job and we felt very instructed and uplifted by the end. The best part of MLC was being able to chill with my boy Elder Browning! We even got to sit next to each other which never happens when you want it to!
We were road trippin hard on the way there and back... we took a van from tally to Crestview and picked up some companionships about halfway so there were about 10 of us missionaries packed in a van just having a good ol time singing songs and telling great stories.. it was so much fun! The rest of the week was nothing really too much out of the ordinary other than our sick 4th of July party over at the Knudsen's! We ate dinner and just chilled with them for a little and had the best time! We also had lunch at the institute with the campus district and all the senior couples and that was a blast! We had a steller week and had a lot of fun!
This week the big lesson that i learned and wanna pass along was something that President Smith said in MLC. He was teaching us about praying and helping our investigators to pray and he told us this about the position in which we should pray, "On your feet or on your knees but never in your seat." I thought that was super interesting especially when i thought about it.... if you were in front of a king you would kneel and speak respectfully to him... you wouldn't sit back and talk to him like a homie. Yes He is our friend and He loves us but our language and even our position shows an amount of respect for our Father in Heaven. We should always try our best to be the most respectful to God... after all he is the one that gives us EVERYTHING. So this week i wanna invite everyone to focus on saying kneeling morning and night prayers. Also if you have a hard time staying focused while you pray, go into a separate room and speak out loud... its weird at first but it helps you stay focused and you feel very satisfied with your prayers when you're done! Have a great week!
