Well it has been another great week...despite the fact that it’s getting really, really cold and snowing a lot....
Happily, we had many opportunities to do service and a lot of teaching!
We had the opportunity to serve at the animal shelter and at this awesome food shelter. Another church organizes food to give to those in need. And it’s really cool because they let the missionaries come and help! We also were able to help an older lady groom her horse and scoop the poop! Yup!
This week was great because we met new people to teach. We have found both new investigators and people who have not attended church in a while to teach. We started teaching an older man who is less active and he is so ready and wanting to come back to church! The entire lesson the spirit was so strong and he was crying and emotional the whole time.
The German couple we are teaching is doing really good. We had a great lesson about baptism. They are not quite ready, because they want to learn more English first. They are really awesome people! We are also teaching this woman named Debbie. She has started reading the Book of Mormon and her countenance has completely changed! it’s amazing to see! We taught her Word of Wisdom and it was a powerful lesson and she committed to it!
Sunday night was a crazy night! Lots of miracles happened....We found two new investigators and the husband is a Dallas Cowboy fan!! So that led him to letting us in!! Score! That night we had some very spiritual lessons. We could really see the Lords hand in this work. The people we saw and the messages that were shared were just what these people needed at this specific time!
It’s amazing to see the Lord's hand in people's lives every day and to be able to see the change in people! Like president Benson said "I have tasted the joy of missionary work. There is no work in all the world that can bring an individual greater JOY and HAPPINESS" How true that is!
