HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!! I am not sure if I gave a S/O to Cassidy before.. so HAPPY BIRTHDAY CASSIDY!!!
This week has been so full of miracles! There is just no way I could have time to write all of them though, So I will just get a few..
This week was a real struggle to find. We talked with everyone and the people were just not very receptive. So at the holy half of the night, last 30 minutes of the day, we stopped and said a prayer to be able to find more people to teach. We go and 2-2-5 and no one is answering their doors. We start walking down the sidewalk and we run into this guy Jeremy. He was just coming from church and was very open to learning more. As we were talking to him another guy walks by us and we stop him and start talking to him too. He knew another investigator we were teaching. So we taught a summary of the restoration and were able to plan a time to see them both again! It was so awesome! At times Sister Hansen would have to focus on one of them and I would have to focus on the other one. It was again another miracle to see our prayer answered immediately as we then went on our way doing all we could to make it happen! God really provides! He answers prayers, and He is so much more involved in the work then we realize. It truly is His work!
Also we have been working with a lady named Tica Bonilla. We got special permission to teach her from President Porter. She isn't in our ward boundaries, but she asked for sisters to teach her so they sent us. SHE IS GETTING BAPTIZED THIS WEEK!!!!!! We are so excited for her!! Last Thursday is when we got her on date for . When I extended her date she quickly got in her kitchen and started fiddling with things in the cupboard. She pulls out a glass jar that had brown powder on the bottom. on an earlier visit she told us that she was just going to finish her jar of coffee and then be done completely. So she asked me if she needed to be done with it right now. I said yes. She immediately began dumping the remaining powder in the trashcan!! Wow! It was moving! The spirit in the room at that moment was so strong! She is so determined to live the commandments. We have also been working with her on quitting smoking. She has moved to an e-cig and when we saw her she told us that she completely took out the nicotine in her e-cig. Its just watermelon flavored water. It is just the habit of bringing something up to her mouth constantly that she is working on quitting. She is so amazing! It has truly been a privilege being able to teach her the past couple of weeks to work towards this date!
Dante is another investigator we have been working with. He came to church Yesterday and is working towards the baptism date of the 25th this month! He is the Bauers grandson. He has significantly changed within the past couple of weeks working with him too! Brother Bauer made a comment on that.
So many miracles! I honestly cannot even begin to guess on how many we have seen this week!! There are so many more, sorry I don't have time to write them all!
