Hey everybody! So this week was good, but long! Since it is coming to the end of the month and we have a certain amount of miles we have been running pretty low on what we have left. We had to ride bikes for a day or so, but then my tire popped. We then had to walk majority of the time and our area is huge so it takes a lot of time to be walking from one place to the other. My feet were so dead and plus it has been like upper 80's and humid the last few days. It was good though, because I felt like since we were still working hard and always staying busy the Lord was blessing us!
One of the investigators we started teaching this week is Mike. His mom used to investigate the church, but she just passed away recently and that has been really tough on him. It was pretty cool though, because we just ran into him on the street and OYM (open your mouth) him and he was super interested. So we have taught him this week a couple times and he has been loving it and you can feel the spirit so strong there. At the end of our first lesson we asked him to say the prayer and when he started to say it the spirit was just intensified and it was one of the most powerful prayers I have personally heard.
Another cool thing that happened was yesterday at around 8:00 p.m. we were just about to go walk around downtown to talk to people, because that was what we had planned. We both felt like we should go to the church though to add people on Facebook and try to teach a lesson on there. When we got to the church there was a car already there and it was member of our branch that was recently less active and has been coming consistently to church the last few weeks and she was crying in her car. We started talking to her and she has been having a really hard time and has felt like the adversary has been holding her back. We asked her if she would like us to give her a blessing and we did and it was such a powerful experience and after she said it was like God sent us there at that time for her. It was so cool to be able to be there when she needed us and to give her that blessing. She said she felt so much more peaceful and full of the spirit after.
I hope all of you are all having a great week. Talk to you next Monday!
