Well this week was pretty exciting, at least the first half. The
second half was a little slower, but it was still good. On Monday
evening we had a great lesson with a new investigator named Brenda. We
showed her the He is the Gift video and she loved it! She said
afterward when we asked her what she thought about the video she said
that she had never felt like that before! She obviously grew up with
some extent of knowing about Jesus and God, but has never been very
religious and so she really felt the Spirit strongly with the video.
It was really really neat to see the change at came over her from what
you could tell she was kinda like to what she all of a sudden wanted
to do and become.
Then later in the week we met a good lady named Lacy who's apparently
a former investigator, but as soon as we knocked her door she opened
up and invited us in to have some tostadas, which I haven't had in
forever it feels like and it was really nice to have some real Mexican
food again! And we shared the He is the Gift video with her and left
her with a Book of Mormon and while we haven't had another lesson with
her we stopped by and she'd read the introduction, which is what we
left her! We also went by and saw another family we're teaching and
while the dad was out we talked to the son and he'd been reading the
pamphlet and a little in the Book of Mormon as well! So we're
definitely seeing miracles here! Basically my evaluation on the area
for Spanish work is that there is definitely work to do and potential
to be had. What I don't know is whether or not it's enough potential
compared to other areas to keep it open. That's a decision that will
have to be made by President Alba. But I hope that I get the
opportunity to continue working the area and trying to get it going
and see miracles here. But if not I know it's the Lord's will and I'll
go where I'm needed!
I love y'all and hope y'all have a great week!
