Secondly, Heavenly Father loves me! He has sent me to the most incredible area! This week was crazy full of miracles.
On Tuesday we went to contact a potential who turned out to be completely not interested. As we were walking back to our car we saw a lady getting groceries out of her car. We asked if we could help and when she said she was okay, we asked if we could share a message about Jesus Christ. That's when she dropped the bomb on us that she was already a member! Turns out that her family was baptized in Florida years ago, and when they moved here, they didn't know where a church was! Her husband recently passed away and she said they had never been sealed. We told her that we could help her get there and she said she would love to try. Hooray for temples! :) Speaking of temples, our investigator Francess got to go to the DC temple with the Young Women's group. She couldn't do baptisms but she got to go to the visitors center and learn more about it. She said it was such a cool experience. Her and her mom are so excited to be baptized! I might be more excited. The Lord has so many blessings in store for them! Francess said that she thinks she wants to be a missionary someday! :D
Wednesday we had an awesome experience with our new investigator Jay. We've had three appointments with him fall through because we couldn't find a woman to come with us. Well, we finally scheduled it on a day that a recent convert named Sherreese could come with. It turned out to be a miracle because Sherreese used to be baptist, just like Jay! She was able to testify to him that the Book of Mormon had all the answers to his questions, because they were the same questions she had had! It was such an inspired lesson.
We got a media referral on Thursday from a woman named Quitta, requesting a bible. We called her as soon as we got it and she told us we could bring it to her right then. When we got to her apartment she was so excited to see us and met us at the door! She invited us in and we were able to give her a bible and introduce her to the Book of Mormon. She was so excited to read it. We asked if we could come share more with her and she agreed, saying that she would invite her husband to listen too! The Lord is so good!
On Friday we had a Zone Conference and met our new Mission President and his family! President Randall, Sister Randall, and their three kids! They are great and I am so excited to work with them! Especially for the temple open house that is getting closer and closer!
This week has really strengthened my testimony of being accountable to the Lord and being where you tell him you're going to be. The times we followed our schedule with exactness were the days that we found the most prepared people that are so ready for the gospel. Alma 36:36 "Counsel with the Lord in ALL thy doings, and he shall direct thee for good..." I know that is true.
I love you all and hope you have a safe and happy Independence Day. :) God bless America!
