Find Opportunities Around Us
But we must continue with our p-day.
We have had some pretty great lessons this week.
Great things that happened this week:
So R______ and V_____ are two investigators we are teaching and during last week's lessons the D______ invited them to come to the FHE they usually have. And yes, you guessed it.... They show up to FHE at the D______!!!
We had exchanges I went to the other sister's area with Sister I____. We had quite an interesting day :) We went to a sister's home who is less active. We listened to her concerns and tried to explain certain things she was struggling with. And the Lord filled our mouths with the things to say. She asked us to come back. She is pretty great. May seem a little intimidating but once you get to know her she is so great. I learned to listen. You show your love for someone when they listen.
One other lesson we had this week that stood out. Was with a recent convert. V_____. He is making some life decisions right now, like deciding whether or not he should serve a mission. H has a wonderful conversion story. He has a strong testimony of prayer and that God hears us. We shared our testimonies with him of how much our testimonies have changed our lives. And the scripture we read with him in Alma 42:30-31, really got to him. He is going on a mission!!!!
On Thursday we had parked our car a little ways away from a referral to walk some. We walked by a sister's home whom we had previously offered service to. We heard her calling after us so we dropped by. We shared a message with her of service. And thanked her for the drink of water and watermelon she offered us. She started crying and told us to stop by anytime because she always needs to hear an uplifting message.
We should always find opportunities around us to serve. Even though it may appear as though they may not want or need help, you never know how much one kind act will touch one's heart.
Watch this new Mormon message it is great.
Every week we seem to be growing closer and closer together as a companionship
The Lord prepares those who are ready, little by little.
I love you all. Know that you are loved from on High.
Keep doing what you do and thank you for who you are.
