was really good! It was all about faith and the importance of having
the spirit as you teach!!
Friday, after weekly planning we were sitting in our apartment
eating lunch and someone knocked on our door. We answered and there
was a man standing there, he told us he was moving in today and he
thought he was supposed to be moving into our apartment. We figured
out that he was actually moving into building 1, not 12, and gave him
directions to the correct building. He was in a hurry, and he quickly
left. After we left we just sat there and we thought, he's like
exactly the type of person we're looking for, who is just moving in
and probably looking for a church. So we called the Pilgrim Mill
Elders (who also live in our apartment complex) and asked them if
they'd like to go offer to help this man move in. Like 30 minutes
later, when we were getting ready to leave the same man knocked on our
door again, and he tells us he needs those guys we sent earlier
desperately. He told us that he had lost their number but he had
opened up the moving truck and it had been loaded wrong, but needed to
get the tv out right then for the cable guy. So we gave him their
number again and they were able to help him! I don't know what
happened after that, if he will accept the gospel or not. It
definitely was not a coincidence that he knocked on our door, as a
result of him getting lost, that his apartment number was similar to
ours, that we were actually home when he knocked, and that the truck
had been loaded wrong so that the elders could go help him move in!
Saturday night we were tracting before the women's conference and we
met this really awesome lady! She talked to us for a bit, and it turns
out she used to date a Mormon boy and high school and she is really
interested in reading the Book of Mormon! Then she told us she doesn't
actually live there, but she was dog sitting for a friend! So we got
her information and sent it to the missionaries that are in her area!
What's cool is that later we found out that a couple weeks ago the
Elders had already tracted that street (people told us that they had
just come by) but if we hadn't been there that specific night we
wouldn't have met Lindsey who was ready to hear more!
The women's conference was so good! I especially loved President
Uchtdorf's talk about having the faith to keep knocking....literally
while we are tracting, but also how we need to keep knocking and keep
looking for answers to our prayers, because they will come! A quote
that I especially loved was: "God “rewards those who earnestly seek
him” [Hebrews 11:6], but that reward is not usually behind the first
door. So we need to keep knocking. Sisters, don’t give up. Seek God
with all your heart. Exercise faith. Walk in righteousness."
someone gave us a cake!
We didn't have any food for dinner one day so we decided to go to
steak n' shake, the shakes were so good!
Although I guess it wasn'tvery good for you because
afterwords we went tracting for 2 hours and
the street we picked had super steep driveways
and neither of us felt very good.
