This week was a crazy one. We were so blessed to be able to go to the Nauvoo Temple and Carthage. It really Built our testimonies and got us more pumped to do missionary work. We found out later that Carthage was not apart of the approved locations for missionaries soo.......now we know. haha I felt really blessed to see the City of Joseph, Nauvoo the Beautiful. The Whole Place has a spirit to it that cant me compared to. It just took my Breath away.
We had an outstanding week. One of the best that this area has seen in a long time. It was Great to be able to see some miracles. The biggest one that stands out to me was Saturday. We had an appointment with a new investigator and had planned a recent convert to come out with us and we get there and no one was home, So we asked our recent convert If he would like a Lesson, he was kind of excited because he hasn't a lesson in a while. So we taught him about missions and about struggles that missionaries have on missions and what he should expect and how he should prepare for a mission. He really appreciated it, He is going to be leaving to Philadelphia mission in February and he is so pumped to GO. He asked us what we had next on the schedule and we told him he
had tracting next so we invited him to come tracting with us. He told us he has never been tracting before and really wanted to Go. So we tracted around where are appointment earlier. We actually found some pretty sweet potential investigators! One of them had already been to temple square and she was in Love with the Christus statue! He bore powerful testimony of how much the Gospel and blessed his Life and that It could bless hers too. We got done with Tracting and went back
to the apartments that our first appointment was at and our
investigator was home we were able to come in and talk to him about the Plan of Salvation and he just got it all, it was really cool because we were going to watch this video about the plan of salvation when his up stairs neighbor, who is the girlfriend of another
investigator came in and watch the whole video. It was so Cool the
Spirit was so strong. After that lesson we where on our way home to
Have dinner and Elder Scrogham had an impression that we needed to try
to contact a referral a member gave us that we were never able to
catch. Lo and behold, she was home. Were able to teach here on her
door step and asked here what she wanted to in life. she said 2
things, one how could she get a relationship with God and 2 why did
God take her Husband. It was great that Elder Scrogham and I were able
to teach her, because lately Just knowing God is real is something,
Elder Scrogham and I have been teaching that a lot. She was very
comforted from the things we were able to share with her.
I know Heavenly father works with our life so closely so we can do His
will. I Love doing the Father work his will. I makes me feel so much
better than anything Else I could do.
