This week we had a special Stake Conference because member of the Seventy was coming to visit. It was a neat conference, especially for those we are teaching about the church, that decided to come this week. It was cool to get to see so many familiar faces from both the Fountain and Sand Creek wards that i served in before, seeing as this is their stake. I enjoyed the opportunity of reuniting with old friends and people that i got to know so well, near the beginning of my mission. Many f these people truly helped me to become the missionary I am today.
One of the people that came to church with us today is Jimmy. Jimmy is awesome. He is supposed to be baptized this coming saturday. He is very excited and has a strong desire to be a part of the true Church of Jesus Christ on the earth today. I am so grateful for the opportunity to now know him and help him in coming to the church. His desire is strong, and he enjoys sharing the opportunity with others.
The rest of this week we saw some awesome success, 6 new people interested in learning about the church, that we have begun teaching. Its truly been miracles from the Lord in our area. All 6 are couples, so 3 couples that all have a desire to have the best for their families, each at different points. One is trying to start a family and wants to do it right. One has one but its a little broken currently and they are trying to make the best of a sticky situation. Finally a couple that has now sent all their children off from the home, trying to find the truth.
A pretty funny moment this week was on our way to help a young man with his eagle project yesterday and we discovered that the location was a trail right off of Drury Lane. My companion was quick to remember the song “do you know the muffin man” which informs us that the Muffin Man lives on Drury Lane. So, naturally we tracted the street, asking if anyone was the muffin man. Unfortunately, no one was. Just kidding, we didnt knock doors and ask, but we did however go out of our way to buy muffins and take pictures with the street sign. (see google drive)
The weeks go on, miracles never cease. The Lord truly is a god of miracles, although He is also an 11th hour God and gives us many opportunities to strengthen our faith and patience in Him. So grateful for all that I constantly learn. Love you guys dearly.
ps Happy Birthday shoutout to the BEST MOM THERE EVER WAS.
