July 25, 2011 E-Mail

Another great week has gone by. The sad part is that I can't seem to remember much of what happened. It seemed like I was just barely here e-mailing yesterday. The highlight of our week is our awesome investigator that we have Alma. She is doing very well. We went and visited her with the bishop the other day and we taught her the word of wisdom. It was a very bold lesson and the bishop did most of the teaching. She was afraid she wasn't going to get the money to be able to put gas in her car to come to church on Sunday. So the bishop very lovingly told her if she didn't buy cigarettes she would be able to put gas in her car. Then we left and he gave us ten dollars and told us to go back on Saturday and give it to her if she hadn't come up with gas money. Anyways we went back and she told us she still hadn't gotten the money but she would be there on Sunday. So we didn't give her the money that bishop had given us. We wanted it to be like a test. Well sure enough she showed up to sacrament meeting yesterday. It was so awesome!!! She was crying during the meeting and everything. Then after she told us that she was studying from the word of wisdom pamphlet we gave her and she opened up the book of mormon and it wasn't to the right place but she started to read and it just hit her and she knew it was true. She was so happy. We are going back to see her tonight.

Last night we also had a great experience with a church tour. Mom you asked about it and the way it works is we start out in the foyer showing them a picture of Christ and explaining that are church is founded on His doctrine. Then after we take them into the chapel and explain about the meeting and the sacrament then we ask them where they would like to sit on Sunday then commit them to come to church. Then the last stop is the baptismal font room. We explain how Christ was baptized and the importance of being baptized. Then we invite them to be baptized. Some recent converts invited one of there employees and her family on a tour last night. It was really powerful because in the chapel we invite the members to bear there testimony about the sacrament. So the member was bearing her testimony and got very emotional. So then the non-member girl also felt the spirit so strong and was getting very emotional. The family doesn't live in our area, but hopefully they will come to church. They are having some family issues and the best cure for that is the gospel of Jesus Christ.
That's about all I can remember from this week. Starting tomorrow we are going to begin our 80 hour tracting week. We just really need to find new investigators and that's our plan to do it. Hopefully we will see some miracles. I know that this church is true. I'm so grateful for the guidance it has given me in my life and the guidance it can give to anyone if they accept it. I love you all!!! Have a great week!
