This week has been another week of miracles. There were so many times that we decided to go to a certain place and we were continuously in the right place at the exact right moment. It was amazing to see the little inspirations that we received, that in the moment didn’t seem like anything. Friday was especially like this. We had a couple of our appointments cancel, so we felt inspired to go and stop by the house of a former investigator who we had met but didn’t have any success setting an appointment. At this time, her neighbors were outside, so we decided to spend some time talking to them. We talked a lot about what we do as missionaries and why we are willing to leave everything behind to preach the word of God. It sparked their interest and they had lots of questions about the things we teach and the blessings we have to offer. We had to leave after that, but we set an appointment with them. Then, our next appointment cancelled, so we decided to visit a potential investigator, but his neighbor was outside too! We talked to her and she let us in immediately and we talked a little bit about missionary work, and how she had met with missionaries before and what they had taught her. We talked to her a little bit about our purpose as a missionary and set an appointment when we had more time.
Every other lesson we had was so amazing and it was obvious our timing and place was inspired. For some of them, it was just an idea of “we should go here,” without another thought about it until after when we were reviewing the day and realized that if it hadn’t been in that exact moment, it wouldn’t have worked out the way it did. And then we realized that we had counted numbers wrong, and had actually surpassed our goals and found 6 new investigators! It was amazing to see that the Lord will lead us to the people that He has prepared.
This week we have a temple trip! I’m so excited! I love the temple so much every time I go. I love the opportunity to be spiritually renewed, to be in the Lord’s house.
There’s not much else to report. I love you all! Stay amazing!
