I'm not gonna lie, this week has been a tough one. Despite that, my testimony of the Gospel and Heavenly Father's hand in my life have grown so much. He has an eternal perspective and is a meticulous planner. When the going gets rough, miracles happen.
We had most of our appointments cancel on us this week. Including B and S. Because of certain circumstances we weren't able to teach B all week and were worried that we wouldn't get to teach him again for a few weeks. We prayed our hearts out for him and surprise! We get to teach him tonight. I'm excited to see him continue to progress! Our hearts broke a little when S texted us and told us that she had talked to her pastor. She wouldn't be meeting with us to learn about our "Mormon book."
However, when one door closes another one opens. We went tracting and were able meet V! She met with the missionaries years ago but had some concerns and never got baptized. She said she wanted to try taking the discussions again and invited us back to teach her! We also met L. This hilarious 73 year-old lady who the missionaries had lost contact with a couple months ago. She let us know that she feels this church is true and wants to be baptized, but has two surgeries coming up that will have to delay it. We are praying that everything goes smoothly and that we will be able to set a date soon. Yay for new investigators!
Also! Brother H is awesome! He is set to get the Aaronic priesthood soon! We are going to start helping him with family history so that he has names he can take to the temple for baptisms! We are so excited for him!
Tracting, as always, has been a delight. This week we shared a video about Christ with a man and he went bonkers. He yelled at us and everyone else on the street, saying that we were messengers of Satan and yada yada yada.
It has been freezing here in Bethlehem. We've had a few of what they call "snow squalls". From what I've experienced thus far, it's just snow blowing around in ten different windy directions. It's great! I'm blaming the squalls for the sore throat and stuffy nose that I have now. It makes our constant singing difficult, but you know how it goes. "Onward, ever onward!"
I love you all! Thank you for your prayers! Keep smiling!
