Well it was another awesome week! At the beginning I was a little nervous how the first week would be because it would give me a good idea of how the transfer was going to go, but I had nothing to worry about . My new comp and I were able to have a super successful week!
On wednesday all of our appt. fell through.. Every single last one, so we decided our only goal for the day was to find an elect. We hit house after house and had a few that seemed curious but were busy and other's that wanted nothing to do with us. Anyway after a long day of passing house after house I was about ready to call it a day but we decided on going to one more house.. (Im sure you guys can imagine how this story is going to go) But this guy answers and says we can come back tomorow night. Perfect we will return. The next day was much like the previous.. not a whole lot of luck.. but as we returned to that house as our last appt. and he wasnt there.. but his sister, Tainá, with about 22 years greeted us and invited us in. She seemed super interested and something about her seemed a little diferente. We taught her the Restauration and she began to cry.. she told us she had prayed yesterday for an oppurtunity to return to church and have more peace and she expressed during our lesson she felt this overwhelming peace. She accepted to be baptized march 8!! She was the elect we were looking for! We returned the next day and we asked how her day was and if she prayed to know it was true.. she told us all day it was a super stressful day but she had this continual peace with her. She knew it was her answer and we taught her how the Holy Ghost is our constant companion after baptism and brings this peace and feelings. She is super excited to be baptized and receive the Holy Ghost!
We found and started working with many others that seem very interested and excited! I am excited to see where this week takes us and the progression of Tainá and our other investigators.
I miss and love you all so much and hope you have another great week!
Also, Mitch.. Good luck with College papers! You got this for sure!
Thanks for the support and love,
