Friends and Family!
We actually had an amazing miracle this last week! We went to knock on this door and asked the guy if we could share a message about Jesus Christ and he let us right in! That's a miracle in and of itself, but we proceeded to talk and ask about his religious background and he said he grew up in a church. But right now that isn't working well for him and he'd fallen away from it and is currently in spiritual turmoil. He asked about what it would be like if he came to our church so we said "the church is like 2 minutes down the road, we could give you a tour right now if you want" and he said "I'll meet you there in 10 minutes" so we gave him a tour of the church on the spot! Never happened to me on my entire mission! Never heard of it ever happening like that in this entire mission! It was amazing! We talked about baptism as we got to the font and he said he wants to investigate more before committing to that, but he likes the idea of a fresh new start and all that. Unfortunately, he didn't come to church yesterday and we stopped by to chat with him. He's going to read more and pray and get back to us. The spirit was so strong in the tour and I feel absolutely confident he will read from the Book of Mormon and get back to us soon! He had such good questions during the tour and is truly searching for the truth!
Other than that, it's been much of the same knocking on doors and trying to share our message. We have a few people who are willing to have us back, so things are starting to pick up, but not all that fast. Hopefully lots of the people who allowed us to come back will start to progress in the coming weeks!
In light of our miracle, this week's challenge is to tour an LDS church building if you aren't a member. If you're a member but haven't been in a while, attend this Sunday. If you're a member and actively attend church each week, invite someone on a tour who isn't a member! If you don't know how to go about organizing a church tour or if you'd like to go on one, check out LDS.org and go to the Meetinghouse locator and call the bishop. He'll connect you with the missionaries and they'd love to show you around! :)
Love you all and have an awesome church filled week!
