Week 31: Continue learning, teaching

 

So this is going to be a short email today because we have zone P-Day, which starts in about an hour and it’s a far bike ride. But this week was a very nice week. Elder Dat and I learned a lot about teaching skills and asking questions that are first and foremost inspired from Heaven, and then, second, spending more time really listening to what they say, instead of focusing on what to say next. It’s kind of double duty for us because we first have to understand what they’re saying to us in Vietnamese, and then go beyond that and look into the deeper meaning by relying on the Holy Ghost to know what to say next based on what they told us. Who knew that talking to a person and teaching them could get so difficult. But we’re getting better at it, and the results are pretty cool. I’ll have to end the email here, but I hope everyone has a good week! Love you all!
