I think this week can only be summed up by a scripture in alma 26.
"And this is the blessing which hath been bestowed upon us, that we have been made instruments in the hands of God to bring about this great work"
this week we have had several experiences where all we could say was wow.. God is doing a great work here.. we have been seeing miracle after miracle and they just keep coming! one of the biggest things that happened this week, is on tuesday we were walking looking for a future investigator that we had and we knocked a house looking for them and on the other side of the street, there was a group of like 6 people from the ages of 30 to 50 and they yelled out to us asking for a bible, and at first we honestly thought it was just a joke, then they yelled again and we went, explained the book of mormon, had a lesson with all six of them on wednesday, then another one on sunday and several of them are very seriously interested!!
then another experience that we had, we were visting a family that is less active and as we got there we found that they weren`t home, so we decided to knock the house of the neighors and we found a less active who we didn`t know, and she told us that she had decided to return to church and to quite smoking so she picked up her phone to look for a place where she could get help to quite smoking, and then we knocked. God sent her the missionaries as an answer.
I wish i had more time to write all of the miracles that we have seen in our area, but i can`t, all i can say is that the great blessing that is beeing bestowed upon us is that this week we have been made instruments in the hands of God and we have seen part of His great work. This has been one of the greatest weeks of my mission and we are praying that it can keep going like this, because there are a lot of things we have to do here and im so excited for the progress of these peaple that we are teaching.
I love you all and hope you have a great week.
