This was a week of miracles. I won't lie, I had been a little down for the longest time about how the work was progressing in this area. But with the new splits we are doing and the changes they have made to the mission we have had a ton of miracles. We are trying to make our area a model area for the zone. So this week we did a ton to work with members and get people to church.
Since Monday I started doing everything to get people to church this Sunday. I wrote down numbers, asked for addresses so we could stop by and pick them up. I even called an Hermano and got him to help us with a mini bus to drive a bunch of people to church. Sunday rolled around and we went in the bus and were able to get 5 investigators in the bus. Then at church we watched 6 more investigators show up! It was so awesome to see so many of these people we love and teach come to feel of the spirit at church. This week 3 of those 11 are preparing to be baptized this Sunday (Rebekah and Daniel Gonzalez, and Carlos Eduardo) And next week we have 4 possibly 5 people that are preparing for baptism the 31st of this month! We have worked hard to show our faith and now the Lord is helping us to bring forth fruits.
I had splits one day this week with a missionary in our area and we had an experience that was super awesome and spiritually uplifting. We went to go visit a convert but she was busy. So then I had nothing more than a feeling to go contact a certain street in our area. We knocked and at the 2nd door we knocked we found members! Wahoo. but that wasn't quite the miracle, the Hermana explained to us that she had been waiting for us to visit her for so long because a few weeks ago had an accident and fractured her hip, making it hard for her to walk. She then told us that due to this her husband had taken her to church the last 2 weeks in a taxi because he knew how much she loved the church. She told us to visit him because he is not a member. He expressed to us his desires to change and be a better person and we were able to help him understand that that is exactly what we teach and that he can do it. He went to church again and we are planning his baptism for January or early February! There are miracles if you let the spirit guide!
Well I love you all and hope that you have a wonderful week! Let the spirit guide you all and I am certain you will see miracles just as I have!
