This week was so great! Well, almost every week is great, but this one was especially good.
We met with an old investigator Pablo, who was almost baptized a few years ago. After trying to meet with them for months, we finally taught him and his daughter the restoration yesterday, and the spirit was so strong. He commited to reading the Book of Mormon and we're so excited for them.
My companion received a prompting one day to stop by a member who we've been trying to meet with for a few weeks as she has some less active kids. It turns out our visit was just what she needed. She was having a really hard time with some things, and she said that God has sent us exactly when she needed it. Also, it turns out that only one of her kids is less active, and the other two aren't members, so we have a family home evening planned to meet them!
Another night we watched the testaments with Marcella, a lovely member that is coming to church more often with us now. She's had some hard things happen in her life, and we really just love being there for her. We love her so much! And the spirit was so strong during the video, and she told us that we have a tendency to 'punch' her with the spirit haha.
We also got to teach a youth sunday school class about the plan of salvation. We drew it out on the white board and asked them for answers before we explained the different steps and read scriptures. They surprised me, and knew most of the answers. Never doubt the good youth of the church! They're way awesome.
We also made a few different people cry due to following the spirit and sharing perfect scriptures for people needing a much needed spiritual boost. It was such a rewarding week of work. I just felt so good and that I really am fulfilling my purpose as a missionary, inviting ALL people to come unto Christ. Which is also the purpose of all of us as members! Invite someone to come unto Christ today, it will do them good, and will do good to you in return.
Heavenly Father lives and loves us, and his love is manifest through his son Jesus Christ! I love the gospel! It's true!
I love llamas!
