Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also has become my salvation.

October 28, 2013

i know i was a pretty good xbox player :) we had a crazy busy week! it was awesome though. we had a nice hour and a half drive to a lesson in blue ridge ( im in keenesaw by the way) and we had a kid throw up right after they got done with there baptism inter views. it was all over the floor it was awesome. we now have 4 stuffed moneys buckled in our back seat. we taught a bunch of lessons and knocked alot of doors. we also had some miracles. i will tell the one about the old lady first. so we were knocking doors in this neighborhood trying to find some Hispanic homes. we found one and after we talked to her we asked if there were any more. she said no. usually we would leave and go to a different area, but we just kept going. we knocked on one door, no answer. knocked on another, no answer. then right before we turned around we saw some lady out aide and decided to go talk to her. we went up to her. we noticed the trash can in front of the gate and asked if she needed help. she did, she said she had left her keys at work and had used the trash can to climb over the gate to go get her spare key, but she needed a flash light which was in her car but she could not get back over the fence. so we helped her with that and then helped her over the fence. once she got back over she told us not 2 minuets before she had prayed to god asking him to send someone to help her. she then agreed to listen to our message. we taught her the restoration and right in the middle she pinched our arms. we asked her why? she said " i watched touched by a angle last night and was checking if you two were angles" she took a book of Mormon and said we could come back this week. the second miracles was on Friday we gave this member a blessing that he could find a job, the next day he called us saying one of the places he had interviewed at called him and told him he got the job. these experiences taught me that what i am doing is right, that god really does use us to help his children. though at times it sucks when people wont do what you ask or tell you you are teaching the devils gospel or just close the door. all those thing make the little blessings that we get SO much more worth it. this week was worth it just because of those two things right there. I love this work, it is the hardest thing i have EVER done but i would not trade it for anything. Because what is more important than this work? Nothing that's what. Also Elder Dallin H. Oaks came and spoke to us this week. i shook his hand and his talk was AWESOME!. 
Love Elder Lamb.
P.S. the crowning event of the week was though, we went to show this family we are baptizing on Saturday the baptism font. when we opened the door there was a foot of yellow/ green water and it stinked SO bad. we did not know what to say so my companion said it was just cleaning solution. it was really the pluming from the bathrooms backed up into the font. it was disgusting!
