Aloha All :)
allow me to break it down for you...
not because y'all need "breaking down" but just cuz I guess that's what I'm supposed to do in these weekly emails..
this week was s. smith's birthday!!!
...we ate way too much cake...
for her bday we got a...
s. wachter came and stayed with us for 3 days
she is getting ready to put her papers in
and that was fun :)
s. smith and I pull behind a Colorado license plate
at a stoplight..
here's our conversation:
*sees PIONEER sticker*
S: "Do you think they're... one of us?"
J: "MORMONS!!.. let's follow them!!"
and we did.
funniest part was our windows were down,
and the lady next to us got a kick out of our conversation :)
and the Colorado-PIONEER lady was
Okay so this week was awesome.
and what I learned is that it's vital for us to be receptive to spiritual promptings.
I had multiple experiences where the spirit told me to go somewhere or to visit someone,
and each time I followed that prompting,
something came out of it!!
I got a feeling to go see Gwen,
a former investigator whom is never accepting of us
but we went anyway
and she was home!
and she was a little hesitant at first,
but the spirit whispered what we should say
and she totally opened up to us, prayed with us, and set up a return apt!!
Smith got a feeling to go see Esther,
a potential investigator and really sweet Filipino lady whom is NEVER HOME.
but I felt good about it too,
so we went.
and she wasn't home.
BUT we met Adam walking by their house.
Adam was baptized at 18, he is now 29 and is inactive.
we gave him a Book Of Mormon and invited him to church
AND HE CAME.
The Lord works in mysterious ways <3
We must be worthy of the spirit so that God can use us in His work.
And we must be receptive to being led by Him.
Just think of how many lives you can bless if you put yourself in a position where God, the greatest and perfect being, can lead you to those you can help.
Have a fantastic week everyone! Mahalo for alles :)
HBD to Jana Bennett and anyone else with bdays :) and
