This week we started off Monday night at family home evening, we had an investigator named Julius come and he brought a friend named Ben that we are teaching now, so that was cool! We watched "On the Lord's Errand," a film about Thomas S Monson' s life. It was good :)
Tuesday we went on exchanges in La Mirada, we found a few potentials, since we cover the whole stake haha. One of the potentials was named Alec and we went back to see him Saturday and he was super open! We taught him the restoration and he accepted an invitation to be baptized. God is so good. I know that He is preparing His children everywhere! No exceptions. Every country, every city, every neighbourhood, every street, every house. All people are being prepared in one degree or another to receive the Gospel!
Wednesday, we had some lessons with some less active members, so that was nice. We are teaching about 5 less active members right now.
We actually had a really wonderful experience one evening this week where we were able to be an instrument in the Lord's hand to help comfort one of His children. We were doing some walking late one night (late meaning about 8:30pm) because we didn't have any appointments. So we were going by some potentials in the area and we felt prompted to go to a home. No one was there but as we were walking back to the car, we walked past a man whose bag of clothes had broken and he was trying to pick it all up. He didn't have room in his arms to carry all of it, we offered to help and he accepted :). We started to walk with him to the bus stop and he began to express to us some of his recent heartache and struggles. He said he was trying to get close to God but things kept getting in the way. I was given the opportunity to bear testimony of the Atonement, share a favourite scripture from Alma 7, and offer a copy of the Book of Mormon to the man. Tears fell from his eyes as he took the gift. We then got his contact info to send missionaries to see him asap. I am so grateful for the privilege I have been given to be the Lord's first responder as his full-time representative.
Saturday we did our studies and lunch in the park, in the SoCal sun :D it was 85 degrees haha
Sunday was Stake Conference and Elder Pimentel was here, so that was cool. Afterwards we did some family history work with a recent convert named Justin, and he found a name to take to the Temple! Yay!
Last night we also got a screw in our tire... yeah so the zone leaders very kindly came and changed it for us haha but I forgot to take a picture... thanks Elder Wright and Elder Shultz! We also found a new investigator named Evan later :)
Life is good. God is good. The Church is true!
Ooo! Also on exchanges, Sister Foster and I wrote a poem!
Roses are red
Violets are violet
But the Book of Mormon is blue, so you should read it.
Love you dearly!
This morning when we had to go on a little adventure while our tire was being replaced...
