This has been the best week yet! The highlight was going to the Kyiv Temple and seeing how many other people were there on a random Thursday night! There may not be tons of members in Ukraine, but they seem to be pretty strong.
Today I want to share a quick message about the power of member missionary work. I am so thankful for members who help the missionaries. We taught an investigator The Plan of Salvation this week and had a friend from church there with us. Our investigator was able to see how the gospel applied to a normal person in Ukraine and how it wasn't just some stuff about God from two American kids. We taught a good lesson, but our friend from church was a huge help in explaining other parts of the message and bearing testimony about how it was important to them and their life.
Until this lesson, I was not aware of the significant influence members could have. I invite all members to volunteer their services to the missionaries and ask how they can help. Missionary work is not exclusive to those with name tags. Go out and help this work move forward.
