So, as always, the Lord blesses you after you remain faithful during times of adversity. This week has been a real blessing compared to the last couple weeks we have had. We were able to really see some amazing miracles.
We had tracted into this one couple and the wife was very interested. We have been teaching her pretty frequently. Although she didn’t make it to church, it was great to find someone new that we could begin teaching. She has just soaked up everything we say to her and so hopefully we will be able to help her progress.
But the biggest miracle of the week happened a couple days later. We were out walking around the town talking to people and as we were almost back to our trailer to get a bite to eat this car pulled over and a lady in her 20s and this guy with her start talking to us from their car (miracle in itself that they were young!!!) and she said that she was a member and was wanting to go back to church and was wondering where to find it. And then after we talked a little more she said that her boyfriend wanted to join the church and so we set up an appointment with them. It was just amazing as we walked away and starting talking about what had just happened - we were truly in the right place at the right time. If we would have walked somewhere else or taken longer anywhere else during the day and hadn’t been right there as they drove by we may have never have met them. It’s just amazing how the Lord knows everything and He knows exactly how He needs things to be done. That is why it is so important we listen to the promptings and be obedient. We met with them the other day and he is being baptized March 14th! It’s just crazy how the Lord can bless us.
It is coming to the end of our transfer and it is just crazy how fast truly flies. Doing the Lord’s work just makes everything go faster. I remember that a month used to seem like a long time, but man it sure seems to fly by very quickly now and the people here tell me to wait until I am their age and I am sure they are right! I am not sure whether I will be here another transfer or if they will close the area down yet or if I stay. But either way it will be good. I love the people here so much. It’s just hard because now we are already saying goodbye to a lot of people that we really like. It’s weird being in a ward where they leave you and not the other way around.
We have lots of meetings this upcoming week and will be driving up to Vegas on Thursday so we will be very busy! I hope you all have a great week!
