Week of Miracles!!

Two HUGE miracles happened this week, along with millions of small ones. God is in the details!! I know that 110%!!!

First miracle... I had a baptism!!! We first met this lady on the 30th of July. We were at another investigators house telling her the importance of church and why she must come. Well her friend was sitting there just listening.  We did not even talk to her. Well the next day was Sunday and our investigator and her friend came to church! We were amazed and decided to have her friend get baptized the same day as our investigator; which at that point was a week and a half away! Totally possible though. So we worked with them both every day for a week and a half. Our initial investigator went out of town last Saturday, the day she was supposed to get baptized so unfortunately she was not baptized but her friend was. 2 weeks!!!!!!!!!!! That is all it took for her to have a strong testimony that this is the only true church! Amazing! The day before her baptism we asked where she was in the Book of Mormon she said 2 Nephi 28!! In two weeks she read 1st and 2nd Nephi. WOW!!!! Her baptism was beautiful!! Truly a miracle!!! I am so happy I got to be a part of that!!

Second miracle… An investigator we have been working with for a while told us she will call us when she as time, pretty much telling us to stop coming by. Well we just do not give up that easy. We had a ward member with us and we were going to teach this other lady but she was not home. So my companion said lets go to our investigator. Okay... We show up and she is home. Her boyfriend is home as well!! Which is a miracle because he is a fisherman and gone for weeks at a time. They also need to get married before they can be baptized. We asked if they had talked about it. She said no, so we helped them talk about it and they agreed!! Then the member we had with us worked at the same place as our investigator!! Our investigator does not start until next Friday. The member then testified how she can balance life and family and church. It was an amazing lesson!!! Truly a huge miracle!! The olds of that happening by the hand of man are so slim!! God is truly helping us to help them see the truth!! I love their family so much!!

This week was great!! I hope you all had a good week as well!! Lots of love!!
