This week has been great!! It has been like summer....in Utah but with humidity. They say it will get a lot hotter...and I´m already dying....so I´m a little worried! Ha. We have contacted a TON this week! This means that we are always outside...so it feels all the HOTTER. But all is good and I´ll adjust soon...I hope!
I would like to share a couple ways I have seen the Lord hand in my life this week.
We had ward council on Saturday. It was a great council, but we were anxious to leave because we had a less active we wanted to visit before church the next morning. The meeting went long, and we were in a hurry to get to her house for a short visit when we found out that she wasn't home. UGH! We had 20 more minutes before we needed to return to the pension and so we decided to visit someone we had contacted before, but had a hard time finding them home. When we got to their house they were there and we talked with the mom of the house for the full 20 minutes! She told us how they didn´t go to church because she was catholic and her husband was something else and so it was easier not to go. Then she told us how she didn´t like the prayers of Catholics because she thought prayer should be more of a conversation with God. (in head head I´m thinking...OH YA? Well we have exactly what you need! Can we share a message with your family?!) We have an appointment to return this week and I´m excited to see what happens! I know that the Lord aligned all of these things to happen so that we could talk to her that night!
This week we had a lesson with a new investigator and she accepted a baptism date! There was such a strong spirit in the room!
We had been contacting all day and we were getting a bit frustrated. We stopped and talked about how we can find the people the Lord has prepared for us and then decided to pray. We paused for a moment then both started walking. In the midst of all these businesses we saw a house. We decided to clap (we don´t knock here in Argentina). We met a young woman and had a lesson with her. It went really well and she prayed at the end!
The Lord truly has a plan for us and he is constantly guiding our lives. Just when we need it the most, he places small gifts along the way. I´m so grateful for this opportunity to serve him!
Love you all! Thanks for all the love, support and letters!
See you soon,
