August 25, 2014

Our week did not start as a week of miracles, this week started super rough for us, especially after the week we had just had. You know the struggle, appointments falling through, nobody listening. Just the same old struggles. So going into Sunday we were going in knowing we needed to hit it hard if we wanted the week to end good. So we went with our faith and that's about it. When we got to church we were hoping our usual investigating family would be there. The dad is usually out of town working and had been gone for 4 weeks. But he had gotten home the day before so he came to church. So i knew we needed to go teach them something. So we set up a time after church to talk to them. We met at a members home, and i felt impressed to have a testimony meeting. So to start we sang "im trying to be like Jesus" then we went around in a circle and shared how we had seen the church and teaching of Christ change our lives. It was super cool and we all felt the spirit. The Dad shared his testimony as well. So then we started talking about Baptism. And how we were not trying to get them to be baptized so we could just add members to the church, but really so they could come closer to Christ. I then shared Mosiah 18: 9-10 which the most powerful question is "what is stopping you from being baptized in the name of the Lord?" He could not come up with anything, and i told him its because the time has arrived to be baptized. so we put them on date for the 6th of September. Same day the other missionary's of our branch are having a baptism as well. So it will just be a big party! Im super excited for them.

So two nights ago i made Elder Farr prayerfully choose where to track. He was hesitant but i told him he could do it. So he choose a place and we went the next day. Several appointment had to fall through to get there but we did. When we got there I prayed to know where should we start, I felt we needed to start in this random corner. So we knocked the first door... No answer. So we were getting ready to go to the next one when Elder Farr just started walking into the woods on this little trail. I asked him if we had to and he said yes. So we did, And ran into this Hispanic family. they were not interested at and frankly kinda rude. But as we were about to leave i felt i needed to ask for a referral. So i did, the father quickly answered and said that everyone needs a message of Christ. I still felt we needed an answer. So i asked if he knew anyone who spoke Spanish. The wife was about to say something when the husband quickly answered again. Still no answer, but i knew who ever she was about to say is where we needed to go. So i asked again, she answered and directed us across the street. So we went, It was a family from mexico, they let us in and we shared the first lesson. But differently, we testified allot and spoke more boldly. In the end we asked them to be baptized when the came to know these things are true. They said yes! We are going back this Tuesday to teach the second lesson with them. Its crazy to see how when we let him the Lord guides us to those who will receive us.  

Other than that is was a pretty uneventful week, other than our car won for being the cleanest in the zone at zone conference so very proud about that :)
