So it has rained so much this week! I can’t believe it! The pond behind our apartment has risen up like 2 feet.
This week was good, all weeks are good, so that’s good :)
But Tuesday I had the opportunity to go with Elder Derbidge in Greencastle on exchanges. It was fun, but really different from what I’m used to, lots of people willing to talk, but not a lot willing to listen to a message. But we had a good day. Then after we had a miracle with Patricia Meza, we were able to teach her with the Molina’s and talk about how this is what she needs in her life and what will ultimately bless her the most.
We had an awesome miracle this week. So we were tracting in the rain, which is no fun, and we hadn’t had any success. Then we knock on a door and this plump little Hispanic man opens the door goes, "Are you Mormons?" and we go "yes" then he says "COME RIGHT IN!" It was kinda strange. So come to find out his son is living in another city with a member family, and he has been taught and wants to be baptized; just doesn’t have the support of his parents. The dad Francisco said he’d seen the sons BOM, so I asked if he wanted to know the background of the BOM. So we go into the restoration and he didn’t like it. It was kinda contentious and wasn’t good. SO then elder blood pulls out the Plan of Salvation pamphlet and starts talking about the atonement. He asked Francisco to read a part from the pamphlet, and as he was doing so, he started to cry. The spirit filled the room and it was so incredible!
After zone meeting on Friday we were trying to be more friendly and open to the people we come in contact with. We had some cool experiences where people who off the bat tell us, "I’m not interested," ended up talking to us for like 10 to 15 minutes. So being personable helps a lot!
And the best part is, WENDY IS GONNA GET BAPTIZED ON SATURDAY!!!!!!!!!!!! Im so excited. A year after I found her the first time with Elder Wolverton, I am here when she is getting baptized!
We also had a miracle yesterday morning. We sent out a scripture with an invitation to come to church to a lot of contacts in our phone. And an investigator that Elder Blood and Schoeneman had found and lost contact with, texted us and said she wanted a ride to church. She came to the YSA and it was great! She said she had been in a dark place and when she saw our text, she knew she had to go to church.
Then in the YSA there is a man named Johnzee from Liberia who is getting baptized on Saturday as well. He asked me to baptize him! I have no idea why he asked me, because he can never remember my name. But when someone asks him who is going to baptize him, he looks around, and if he sees me he goes, "Are you the one that is going to baptize me?" Its super funny. But he is such a solid convert.
The Church is true, and the work is being hastened!
