This week was full of miracles! was by far my favorite day of
the week! But you have to hear the build up to why!
it is usually one of our busiest days of the week with teaching!
We did service for an old lady who isn't as active in church, she
started telling us that her lawn mower wasn't working so we got up and
helped her out. We got her lawn mower going and she was super
excited!!! she took off and started to mow her lawn and was smiling
and laughing the entire time! She told us how she was praying she
could get help from someone and we showed up! Miracles!!
S. Vos drove on the wrong sided of the road when we were on our way
home. It was late at night and we were both tired. There was a median
and we turned a road too soon! There was no car until last minute and
all of a sudden the car in front of us was wailing on there horn and
just stopped in the middle of the road, we couldn't get around her and
so we sat there and stared at each other. It was awkward, then she
started driving off so there was room for us to drive then she started
pointing to the other side of the Road and said " your suppose to
drive over there!" Thank you captain obvious, it was an accident!"
Gods Baby, background on her, she is a former investigator and when I
first brought her up, my companion said no to talking to her and said
that she was crazy, for the next few days after, I kept thinking about
her and just knew there was something I had to do for her, so we
texted her and asked her how she was doing, she was so happy to hear
from us and the relationship started from there. We were able to teach
her and eventually invited her to come to church, she immediately said
no because she had to babysit then I told her that she can bring the
grandkids with you, she was still saying no, but then that night she
texted us and said "God won't get you off my mind, I want to come to
church!" We both yelled and couldn't believe it!! God's baby was
coming to church!
We are trying to teach a Burmese family this week, it has been really
hard!!! They love us coming over though, they feel the spirit and I
guess that is what matters! We are hoping to have people come out with
us that speak Burmese or close to Burmese!
was Zone conference and we had the opportunity feeding the
homeless! During the meeting we learned about how strength comes in
numbers and about how the sabbath is a delight! It was such a
spiritual day! We learned that our great grandparents used to consider
the "holy sabbath" then our Grandparents considered it "the
sabbath" our parents considered it "" and now our generation
calls it the weekend! It is crazy to see how sabbath was part of our
spiritual and the actual creation and how society has decided to view
it today! We also learned how the most important word in the English
dictionary is "Remember" because If we remembered Christ always,
there would be no sin! We leaned that Sacrament meeting is one hour,
the savior asked his apostles to wait one hour, can we wait upon the
lord during that one hour, linked into that, sacrament is one
hour...can we wait one hour. It was a powerful connection!
That night we had a zone service we got to feed the homeless at YMCA
it was so enjoyable and lots of fun!! The joy that came to everyone's
face was really special!
!!!!! Today was the best day ever! So remember the old lady that
I talked about earlier? Well she came to church and brought us
something she made for us! Apple dumplings! Another miracle, her LA
daughter came too and said she will be coming more often now! On our
way to church we Picked up gods baby (pearl) and she sang to us and
spoke in church!!! Introduced herself in RS by singing to them that
she was Gods baby!! I died laughing! We also had a referral who
requested a bible and who we never met come, a former investigator and
they both loved it!!
Church was really funny! As we were sitting in Sacrament Meeting, we
had a youth talking about obedience and how it will bless our life. It
was a really good talk! After she was done, gods baby shouted and
started to clap, it startled everyone and everyone stared at her and
us. It was hilarious and I am sure she felt embarrassed but she ended
up smiling and laughing about it all!
That night as we were going to our lessons my Bike tire popped on me
while riding! It was scary but, I didn't crash and help was on the way
for us, bike week ended really soon!
It was a really great week! I am excited for the miracles that will be
happening soon! Matthews is starting to tear it up!!
Quote of the week: Prayer is a privilege and the soul’s sincere
desire. We can move beyond routine and “checklist” prayers and engage
in meaningful prayer as we appropriately ask in faith and act, as we
patiently persevere through the trial of our faith, and as we humbly
acknowledge and accept “not my will, but Thine, be done." Elder David
Ponderizer: 3 Nephi 13 :7-8
Love y'all! Have a blessed week!!
She didn't say who this is, but Lonnie and I are guessing this is "God's baby."
