This week was pretty good. We had quite a few lessons this week, one was with someone who is now a new investigator. When we first contacted her over the phone she thought we were trying to hack into her phone, so we had to ease her fears by telling her that we could meet at the church to prove we were who we said we were. It was kind of funny...but we ended up meeting with her and the lesson went fairly well. She got dropped off by members of the church she is attending currently...so that was a little awkward. She had her two year old son with her and he was definitely in the terrible two's stage. Our Ward Mission leader and his wife were there and his wife tried her best to keep him occupied but he definitely has stronger lungs than we do...hahahaha, it was still a good lesson though. We taught her about Our Life on Earth and about the Book of Mormon and we found a question to her soul and left her with a few scriptures that answered her question. We have another appointment with her on Wednesday and we're pretty excited to see what she found!
We had a couple lessons with Herbert and he is on a solid date for April 9th! The only thing that would hold him back is a Word of Wisdom issue, but he's been clean for more than a week now so we know he can make it. His interview is this Thursday and we're pumped! Now, a cool miracle with him. We had an appointment to meet with him on Tuesday but when we got there we found out that he could only meet for about
10 minutes, which was not long enough to teach what we had planned to teach and with his date coming up fast we needed to teach this lesson to make sure he would be living it for two weeks. We found out he could meet that night and texted a member to see if he could come with us and the member called us and told us to come over for dinner and that he would pick up Herbert for it. So we ended up having his lesson in the members home, and got a dinner as well. It was a pretty cool blessing.
We also met with Chad and he told us that he almost stopped meeting with us because he let the devil enter his thoughts and he felt that he couldn't keep doing this. He knows the Book of Mormon and the church are true, he told us and a member he works with. He just needs to make sure he doesn't let the devil get to him. He's awesome though and we can't wait to meet with him this week.
The weather was kind of weird here. It snowed one day and melted off the next. I hope it's the last time...goodbye snow! (Please) Also, happy Easter everyone! I honestly feel blessed that this Easter was different. This time is wasn't about eggs or candy for me, I actually took time to remember my Savior and how glad I am that I did.
Yesterday gave me a good chance to reflect how I am representing Him and there are definitely things I need to work on and as I've taken the time to find out what those are I now know what the next steps are for me. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and had a chance to remember the Savior. Also, General Conference is next weekend and I would love to hear what everyone learned. It is a wonderful opportunity that we all have to receive guidance from a living Prophet. Take this opportunity and learn something new from God's representatives.
I love you all and hope you have a great week!
