The Blessing Came

That was a super legit week! There were tender mercies all over and Elder Lewis and I firmly believe that Lord saw where our desires were and the changes made and also that we humble ourselves enough to accept his Council and because of that we saw miracles! One of them happened this past weekend. So, we had a couple appointments planned and all was going well, we even had a member coming to one of them. Well when it came time to waiting for the bus, we were well behind Schedule. The Bus didn't come for a very long time and that made us almost 40 minutes late for the appointment we had scheduled. We made it to the place that we were meeting and neither the investigator or the member was there. About 10 minutes later here comes the member with another member. The huge blessing about this was the fact that we were able to do splits so that we could teach two lessons with a member present! It was super sweet! Then Sunday rolls around. Sunday afternoon, we called a contact that we had a couple weeks ago and asked him if there was a possibility that we could see him and he said sure why not. We get to the lesson with him and he is just completely ready for baptism. He explained that he wanted to change his life and that he wanted more that would help him progress towards God! We were blessed to have been able to set a baptismal date with him! It is pretty cool to see how desire can really change a lot, especially attitude with diligence and obedience! :) these are just some of the stories of the week, there are many more!

Also, we had an appointment this past week and we ended up being taught by the missionaries of another religion, it was super interesting. But we will never be seeing that contact again :) This past week, I learned a lot about teaching skills and the importance of listening to the spirit. We were doing a shadow with the sisters (just this thing where we go see how the sisters are doing) and in one of the lessons we were teaching the spirit really inspired me to teach or to talk about NĂ©phi. It was not only inspiring for the investigator but I felt very inspired as well! It was super sweet! The goal of this upcoming week is this: Alma 34:26-27, 39. Sanctification!

I love you all so much and thank you for your words of encouragement! I'm so thankful for all of you and I hope you have a great week filled with awesome studies in the Book of Mormon! :) Love Elder Peterson!
