Tea bag lesson


Hey family so to answer your question the tea bag lesson you light it from the top.

So this week was pretty good, it went by pretty fast, we had an awesome lesson with a former investigator and committed her to come to church, it was a good lesson, her name is Kim and she has two children one is 9 and the other is 14, so we taught her the 3rd lesson and she came to church yesterday, and elder Jensen was giving a talk in sacrament meeting since this is his last week in the mission field, but when he was baring his testimony, she started to get teary eyed, so that was a good experience, hopefully we can meet up with her during this week, and talk to her about what she felt.
We also where invited to go to a Pentecostal church yesterday, some investigators invited us to go,so we did, and that was probably the biggest wast of time in my life, it was just two hours of people standing up and singing along to christian rock songs, and the preacher going off on something and yelling at the top of his lungs, and saying "amen,praise Jesus, and Hallelujah." in mid sentence, so it felt like another way to take the lords name in vain, and nobody spoke in tongues,and the pastor was kinda disappointed cause he said that "you have to prime the spirit before you come to church so you don't robe people of the experience, I think when me and Elder Jensen walked in the Holy Ghost confounded the spirit of the devil,so that's probably why no one spoke in tongues, that's what we want to think at least, but every one was really friendly so that was good, I'm just probably never going back to it. So that was the high light of my week.

Oh and we got transfer calls yesterday and my new companion will be Elder Tarrazas( don't ask me how to pronounce it, cause I'm still trying to figure it out) and they opened a new area , St Clair it is about 30 minuets away, so that will be my new district, and I'm still district leader, I don"t know what God wants me to learn from this.
So I read a pretty cool talk this morning, its called. "Balancing Truth and Tolerance" by Elder Dallin H Oaks and it was pretty good, I think you guys would like it.
Well I hope you are all having a great week and I hope that Dad will soon find a job
Love Elder Dixon
