This week has been amazing. I know that Heavenly Father puts us at certain places at certain times so we can meet people He has put in our paths!
On Friday we were planning to do exchanges but they were cancelled, so we were sitting in our car making calls and we saw someone Sister Loveless knew from a very brief encounter get out of his car. His name is Andrew. He came over to us and we started talking about the gospel. He asked for a copy of the Book of Mormon, and then we essentially taught him the Restoration! We taught him about Joseph Smith's First Vision, the Book of Mormon, latter-day prophets, et cetera and he said that was exactly what he thought! When I told him about modern prophets, he had this look on his face that made it seem like he had a question. I asked him what it was, and he said he felt chills--the good kind, like the ones he gets sometimes when he reads the Bible! He definitely felt the Holy Ghost confirm to him that our message is true. Andrew is a golden investigator--he even set up a lesson at his member friend's house for us that we're going to tonight! He also told us that he'd be reading the Book of Mormon all weekend. We're so excited for him!
Another miracle that we had was because of more cancelled plans. Sister Loveless and I were walking to a referral's home after some plans fell through and before we got to their door, we saw a couple sitting on the curb next to their car. We walked over to them to talk with them and then we realized that one of them was on the phone and she was sobbing. It turns out her father was just put into hospice and he wasn't doing well at all. She was trying to talk to him over the phone but either he couldn't comprehend what was going on or he couldn't speak. It was absolutely heart wrenching to hear. When we got to talk with her, we found out that she and her husband were the people that we had been looking for, but we were never able to find their address. Their names are Denise and Mario. Denise said she was really glad we ran into her and that we brought her a lot of comfort. We stopped by the next day to see what we could do for her and she shared more of her story with us. She is such a wonderful person! We also gave her a copy of the Book of Mormon and she was so excited to read it. She recognized the Holy Ghost while we were with her and knows that she feels comfort from the Spirit.
I'm sorry this is so short! I love you all! Remember everything happens for a reason! Have a wonderful week :)
