we have been working hard here and our first week here we door knocked into a TON of people who wanted to meet with us! it was incredible. one of them was a girl who was on the phone. she didnt seem too interested and was obviously busy, but we asked if we could come back the next day. she said we could. long story short (more miracles involved) but we ended up going over there after we didnt think she was there for our meeting. we taught her and she loved it! her name is maria and she is like 22 years old. she had twins about a year ago and one of them passed away :( she moved up here from GA to be with her parents who live here. she felt the restoration was true and was excited to read the Book of Mormon. that was a Saturday that we taught her. she texted us later that night and said she had moved her appointments she had on sunday so she could attend all 3 hours of church! and so she did :) our first sunday in a brand new area, Heavenly Father led us to someone who was prepared to attend Church.
We have since taught Maria 4 more times and she has loved it all. she wasnt too sure about baptism, but is getting more and more sure every day. she came to church yesterday as well and is doing awesome! we have been very blessed here. there are more miracles to report, but i have not time!
all reports show that the Draher's should be going through the temple to receive the endowment and be sealed on may 16th, my last day as a missionary (before i go to east lansing and prepare to return home). i should be able to go with them. what a miracle. to be able to see them sealed my last day as a missionary...
The Church is true. Jesus is the Christ. Joseph Smith is His prophet. Just remember that faith and belief is a choice. when a man works by faith, he works by mental exertion more than by physical force. therefore, the thought process itself holds the key to exercising faith. put your trust in God and His Son. All will be well. we have no cause to doubt for They will not let us down. Our number one goal should be to seek the Spirit. Pray for it and live for it.
