We have quoted so much Kung Fu Panda this week. It is crazy! Most used quotes this week…..
“No matter what you do, that seed will grow to be a peach tree. You may wish for an apple or an orange, but you will get a peach.”
“Quit, don’t quit… Noodles, don’t noodles… You are too concerned about what was and what will be. There is a saying: yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.”
These quotes are very applicable to missionary work. We often like to change the words to apply to our situation.
“No matter what you do, that person may not want to learn the gospel. You may wish for an investigator or a baptism, but you will get a rejection.”
“Teach, don’t teach…baptize, don’t baptize…”
“Lunch, don’t lunch…noodles, don’t noodles…”
As you can see, these are very good quotes. I exhort you to apply Kung Fu Panda’s wisdom to your life. 🙂
Obviously with mottos like these, this week was very good and we had lots of fun. “It’s not missionary work, it’s missionary fun!”
We have had a lot of success this week while knocking doors. It is amazing how Heavenly Father has blessed us with a lot of ice cream. We met another family that has asked us to come back this week and we are very excited to see them again.
Something I have found that has, I think, made us more successful is praying often and specifically while doing His work and remembering to thank Him when we are blessed with anything, to say thank you as soon as we receive the blessing. I think that as we show our gratitude towards the blessings He has given us, we will be blessed with so much more.
I love ya’ll and miss you!
Talk to you next week!
