This week has been really great! We've kind of been turning over a new leaf in our area. We had a lot of investigators that were really great but not really moving forward... so we got to find this week! It was great :) we found 3 new investigators, Melvin, Pancho, and Salvador.
Last Monday we went bowling with the district. It was a lot of fun! Then afterwards we went and played baseball and soccer baseball with the rest of the zone.
We got to do some family history work with Mattie on Wednesday. We started getting some names ready for her to take to the temple. Next week she should be getting her recommend and then we can plan a trip to LA!
We also met with Bill and Mark a couple times this week. We went over the baptismal interview questions with them, they are progressing well to get ready for their baptism on the 25th! They both really changed a lot and its been wonderful to see that change take place.
This week we also had the opportunity to meet with some member families in our ward. One of the families was the Christensens. Brother Christensen is my dad's second cousin! Who knew? Well actually I guess it is to be expected since he is from Southern Alberta! Haha
We shared the new Restoration video with them and then discussed what blessings have come into their lives as a result of this event. There was no shortage of answers, that's for sure! We then talked about how some people don't know about this and therefore do not enjoy those same blessings. We encouraged them to pray about someone they can share this message with so they can receive those same blessings in their lives.
Also, a miracle that happened this week, someone we have been teaching has been working on quitting smoking and they did!!! We are so excited for them, God really is so good. They said that what made the difference was what they were praying for. They stopped praying to make something happen and instead prayed for understanding and acceptance. It was such a miracle and we are so excited to see this person progress!
We had 4 investigators at church this week! Bill and Mark came, as well as brother Toliseli and Maria. The theme for sacrament meeting and Relief Society was missionary work, so that was nice!
After church, we got to meet with Melvin, one of our new investigators, and go to family home evening with the Toliseli's first, then with Mattie at the Bon family's home.
I sure am grateful for every single moment I have been given to serve the Lord. I love Him, and I love the plan and Gospel He has created and provided for us so we can feel joy, happiness, and love!
The Church is true!
