HELLO- Holy Cow, what a wonderful week!
It was SO productive in the work. There was so many miracles....this is exciting isn't it:) This week has been HUGE on receiving referrals and contacting former investigators and picking up our own PREPARED new investigators! WOOT! This IS the work of the Lord...no doubt about it:)
One day we had the most amazing finding experiences! We decided to follow the elders advice that they had just given us to try....to sit down in the middle of campus, pray to find someone prepared to teach, and work! SO we did:) As we finished saying our prayer, a member of the YSA walked over to us. We asked him who we should teach, he looked around for a few mins and then confidently pointed to a man sitting at a table under a tree. We got up to go talk to him and passed one of our new investigators on the way. As we passed, he said, "Excited for our meeting next week!!" hahaha YES!!! We talked to the man under the tree who ended up being SUPER solid and I think its safe to say that the elders advice...was right:)
We taught K_ this week and she accepted a baptismal invitation! PROGRESS! woohoo:)
Another random highlight of the week...we got a new car...so thats been fun:)
D_, a recent convert/less active randomly showed up at the church this week after institute. He said he had a bad day and prayed and God lead him to our church. He came inside, prayed for a friend, and then all the sudden had a group show up around him- helping him to feel loved. He came to church this week, paid his tithing for all the past time that he'd missed, and was glowing. SUPER sweet experience for sure!!
C_ made MASSIVE progress this week. He didn't respond to our texts all week long but still came to his appointment. We asked how his praying had gone and he was excited to tell us that he had prayed every morning and night since we had met last week. He said it made a huge difference in his week and felt more confident that God was there for him! YAY C_! Keep that fire homie:)
We also had some super amazing experirences-MIRACLES- with S_, M_, and I_...which you will just have to take my word for...because i am out of time. haha my apologies....but know that this work IS moving forward, there are people ready to be harvested, and the Lord is guiding them to us-and us to them.
Oh...and yes...our dishwasher did catch on fire this week....never a dull moment :)
I love this work with all my heart. I know this church is Christ's full, restored Gospel on the earth. I love being a missionary and I LOVE YOU! Have a happy week!! You can make a difference:)
"I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me; yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy."
Love, Sister Burgon*
