This week was great. At the beginning of the week, we found a family and the dad P grew up in the ward close to ours with the bishop over our congregation. We were referred to this family too because they just moved into our area. P's girlfriend is not a member and has worked with the missionaries in the past. So we invited them out to church this week and they came! They had a really great time and bonded with the family they were sitting next to, the Braggs. Their baby literally jumped into Brother Bragg's arms! We are excited to meet with them again and plan to help them get married and then help his girlfriend join the church as well.
I read a quote this week that really stuck out to me and I saw a miracle that goes along with it. "God does notice us, He watches over us. But it is usually through another person that he meets our needs." -Spencer W. Kimball
This past week Elder Goldstrohm and I asked God for what you would call a "golden referral." Well, for some reason we both wrote down to knock State St. After a while of knocking and having no success, a door opened and the man said to us, "You're right on time!" We were shocked, but didn't know exactly what he meant. After talking for awhile, we found out that G had been to the Mormon church before and knew the good that the church does and is looking for change in his life. He accepted our invitation to be baptized and is now working toward preparing for the 30th of this month! We couldn't believe it! God had not only answered our prayers but more importantly, he had answered G's prayers, through us.
Well love you all and hope that you have a great week!
