Hallo Meine Lieben!!
This last week went by crazy fast, and we had such a good week- new
investigators, friendships strengthened, less actives coming back-
such a gift of a week!
Tuesday was just awesome- it began with a first lesson with a new
investigator named Lisa, she's such a cool German. Elders last week,
who were here for the day during transfers had gotten her number for
us, and we set up an appointment! When we were there, we asked what
her expectations were, and she said she had none. So, we went with the
classic- we explained the BOM, and the role of faith in our lives.
Once we shared Moroni 10:4-5, she opened up and shard a special
experience to where she felt God had answered her prayers in the past,
just like the scripture said. :) We will meet with her again this
week. And she's totes reading in the BOM too!
Tuesday evening we met with a less active, Mona. She's around our age,
and we connected really quickly! We skyped in another sister in the
mission who served here when she was baptized, so that she'd feel more
comfortable. And it went great, Mona trusts us now, and Im so excited
to see her progress! That evening, her roommate joined in on the
discussion, and is now another new investigator for us!
We met with Ella again this week, she is the girlfriend of one of our
young adults, she is doing SO good! We taught the Word of Wisdom last
week, and she said she would try to follow it, and she did! She said
it actually became easier during the week, and that she feels so much
better now! She was so happy about it, wants to continue to live it.
Oh how I love the gospel.
We also began teaching the mother of Sandra, (who we went to the
temple with last week) and she is amazing. We had a really great
lesson on faith, despite difficulties. We shared the rockin'
"Mountains to Climb" Mormon message, and she loved it and shared how
she believes God is there, no matter what. She said she'll begin
reading in the BOM. :)
With so much going on this week, I also had lots of negative thoughts
and doubts in myself and my missionary work but I know that where
there is more righteousness, there will be more opposition! And I know
we're doing exactly what we're supposed to because the opposition
seems to be increasing as the miracles come in.
I am so grateful for this Christmas time! I hope this week is
beautiful and white for you all! :) Wishing you all a Merry Christmas
Love you all!!
