February 2, 2015

This week was a good one, It started off really strong on Tuesday when we were going around knocking doors and talking with people. We went to a neighborhood of one of our members because we knew there was allot of Hispanic people that lived there. Now that i look back at it we actually had a really good day knocking. We were able to share a decent amount with all of the people we meet knocking. The wierd part i think is about 80% were teenage kids. And it is really weird for me to teach people that are still living with parents. Because most the parents just shut down everything. We also meet a JW guy that was nice and we talked with him for a few minuets. After being in that area for a while we went and decided to go check and see if this less active still lived on the street were this other member does. So we went and the person did not live there any more so we decided to just keep knocking the second door we knocked he told us some Hispanic people lived in this house on the corner. so we went to knock it. But as we got close i just could not see any signs that it was Hispanic or anything. So i asked my comp if we should knock it or some other door. But we decided to just knock it. So we did and this lady answered the door. we told her we were sharing a message of Christ. She told us she was busy because her husband was sick. I for some reason asked her if we could help in anyway or do anything for them. She then asked us if we could come pray for him. We ended up teaching briefly the restoration and ended up giving him a blessing. He had been hit in the eye with a line drive hit from a softball. His face was super messed up. But we ended up going back last night and shared the Book of Mormon with him and he is excited. 

Then on Saturday we had prayed where we should go knock doors and we felt we should go to two places. The first was Chelsea ln and the other was a apartment complex. So we could not find the complex on the GPS for some reason so we ended up just going to the other place. We knocked and only had to really awkward Spanish contacts, some guy that does not believe in God and one really cool Hispanic lady. But she is not interested. So we were like " what the heck" so we felt and then later that day we got a referral from the English sisters and guess where it was from, yep that same place we were. so that was cool. Then later we decided to try to go visit these less active/ recent converts. And guess what! as we pulled into the complex it was the same one we had been looking for earlier! Its crazy how the lord can lead us if we will just follow the impressions we have. 

I love being a missionary and being able to see so many little miracles. Some times they can be hard to see when allot of other stuff is going on but if we will just focus on what we have we will never lack anything. 

Its really cool to see how what you do and missionary work has in common. I was thinking about that the other day and I think it teaches me I need to be better at getting referrals from people and keeping track of them.
