Hello once again my family and friends!
This week was awesome! Seriously it was so good. 🙂 I don’t have as much time to email today, but let me tell you a little bit about what happened.
Tuesday was probably one of the best days. We had a couple of really good lessons in the afternoon, but the best part is while we were out personal contacting. We saw a lady out shoveling some ice off of her driveway, so we stopped to see if we could help. She saw us and said “You’re missionaries!” We were really happy that she knew who we were. Turns out that she has some really close LDS friends. She has been to the Sacred Grove before with her daughter. She has had the missionaries over before and read the Book of Mormon with them and everything. I don’t know exactly what happened, but we are planning on going back to teach her more. She might be more ready now than she was then.
Wednesday we had Zone Conference with President and Sister Porter. It also snowed on that day. The worst snow that it has been the whole time! It normally takes only 20 minutes or so to get to the stake center, but this time it took us over and hour because the roads were so bad! Ugh! The weather is finally warming up now and the snow is melting pretty quickly. It was really pretty after it snowed though because the snow was heavy and wet so it stuck to everything. It made Fort Wayne look like a winter wonderland. 🙂
We had a lesson with an investigator this week that went so well! Her husband is less active. She really likes going to church though and wants to raise the kids with some religion. She was struggling to know what to do to get her husband on board, since he doesn’t really have a faith in God anymore. BY the end of the lesson, the spirit was so strong and we said a prayer with her. We all felt prompted that she needed to actually talk to her husband herself and not have anyone else talk to him about it. She was so happy because she said that she had prayed that morning to know what to do about her husband, and there we were teaching her, praying with her, and helping her receive her answer. IT feels so good when you know that you have helped answer other peoples’ prayers. 🙂
Yesterday we went and visited a husband and wife named Matt and Ann. They aren’t really investigators but they love us so much! They have told their kids about us and even the people that they work with. They gave us a referral to go and talk to their daughter, so we went later last night to contact her. She was very friendly with us, but was busy at the time and couldn’t talk, so we set up a return appointment. WE are going over tonight to teach her the Restoration. WE are hoping to teach her husband as well, and her 10 year old son. IT should be really good!
Well, that is the big updates for the week. I hope you enjoy the email. 🙂 I love you all and hope you have a great week. 🙂
