So this week was pretty good. We actually had a great week finding new investigators that I feel are really going to progress, so I hope all goes well! Here are a few of their stories..
The first was a reference from a member of the other ward. He told us that he knew a woman who had her family (not all.) die in an accident about 4 months ago. So we were able to stop by and share with her more about the Plan of Salvation, and the lesson went really well. She started to cry, and the spirit there was strong. (Hermana I)
Another- Was a lady that I had talked with with my other comp, and we finally stopped by and she let us in! What was cool there is that she told us that never before in her life had she let anyone into her house (like missionaries..) but when we had talked with her she felt something different, and wanted to know more. It was great becuase she said. 'i really don't know why i said that you could come back..' but- it's because we brought the restored gospel into her life. :)
Then some more is a family that we met on saturday. We found them because we got a little lost in one of the neighborhoods and had to ask for direction... BUT it turns out that other misionaries had talked with them and had given them a pamphlet about 'The Family', and during this time they had been having a few family problems, and said that they had been waiting for us to show up for an appointment, but the other missionaries never went... I'm pretty sure they got lost too. Haha, but then we were able to find them, and they are pretty receptive, and a very great family of 5. :)
One last story... we went to visit a less-active family this past week, who are really great. The family has a testimony in the church, but hardly go to church. So when we visited them of course we invited them to church, and the mom said 'Si Dios Quiere..' Which means- 'if it's God's Will.' it is a phrase that most of the people use here, which means that they won't be coming... BUT she and her family showed up to church!! :) And she started talking to be about how they really didn't have money in the past week, and so they didn't think that they could go to church, but then friday or saturday they receieved a paycheck, and were able to buy all the things for the house, and were able to go to church. :) So that was awesome, and it really shows that God works miracles. haha the mom was kind of laughing because she reminded me that she had said 'si Dios quiere' and it turns out that He did want her at church.
Today in my study I found this scripture that I really liked.. and thought I would share. :)
38 That ye contend no more against the Holy Ghost, but that ye receive it, and take upon you the name of Christ; that ye humble yourselves even to the dust, and worship God, in whatsoever place ye may be in, in spirit and in truth; and that ye live in thanksgiving daily, for the many mercies and blessings which he doth bestow upon you.
Love and miss you all, and have a great week!! :)
