Hey family!!

So this past week has been really great for me. Yesterday my companion and i gave talks in sacrament meeting about missionary work. He talked on the blessings and i talked on the consequences of not doing it. I was actually really kind of scared haha but it went great.

Probably five minutes before i was supposed to talk, i got the thought to read a scripture out of Matthew that talks about how christ came to divide households and how those who value friends or family more worthy than Christ are not worthy of him. After that i shared a quote from PMG by George Albert Smith that says if we do no tdo missionary work then we shall not inherit the Celestial kingdom. Kind of an eye opener for me haha. But it was crazy. I had written a talk with notes and every thing on what i wanted to say, but i just went with the thought or impression i received before i started and it turned out fantastic. Later at a members house My companion and i were told that our talk were very good and then they started questioning us and asking us what we said. Having not written anything down i couldnt really remember what i said, but we were able to answer her questions about missionary work which again was awesome.

I know that as you do missionary work you will be blessed and that Heavenly father is very happy when you do it as well.

I hope you all have a good week! … (personal notes to family)

Love you all!

Elder Payne
