This week was kind of weird, in that Sister Angelie has been sick for a few days so we spent quite a few days at home. We did go to Sister ________ house twice, so that's what I'll share about.
On Wednesday we taught Sister _________ about the Holy Ghost. We did the simple explanation about how he is the third member of the Godhead and he is a comforter and he will be our friend. So we asked her if she wanted to have the Holy Ghost with her, and I love her honest answers, she said "Nggak, Takut" (No, that's scary) hahahaha! For her the word "Roh" or Ghost meant something bad. She pictured a creepy ghost following her around everywhere she went hahahaha. So we explained that Spirits aren't always bad, but if God sends them to help us they are good. So we asked her again, "So who is the Holy Ghost" and she said "Roh yang baik" (A good spirit) that was good enough for me! She makes me laugh so much! She is the most honest person ever and it is just so much fun to teach her.
Then on Saturday we went and explained the whole Plan of Salvation. We had explained up to our life on earth but we never had finished it. So we talked about the difference between resurrection and reincarnation, and something actually stuck with her this time, I think. We talked about how she could live with her family forever. When we asked if she believed she would see her family again, she said "Nggak Tentu" (It's not certain.) We were able to testify to her that it IS CERTAIN! We asked her if she wanted to meet with her parents again, and she didn't really answer. I don't think she's even thought about if she wants to or not because she didn't even believe it was completely possible. That is so very sad to me. But I think we opened up a thought process in her mind that wasn't there before.
She also comes to church without us even having to remind her. She was there up in the chapel area by herself talking with the members. She was answering out loud the rhetorical questions in Relief Society too. She has progressed so much and I am so glad I get to be in this area for a long time so I can see her progress :)
Other than that I have had quite a few Liahona reading Marathons and Solitare games too. That's what happens when a companion is sick.
I hope you have a great week and Happy Fathers day to you all!
Love, Sister Davis
