Dear Fam and Friends!
It was a turn around week for sure! We experienced many miracles in our work. Very very busy week for us!
We had met her at Salvation Army, doing service a couple weeks ago. She called us Monday and wanted to meet with us. We taught her 3 times last week, and by Sunday at church her countenance had changed so much. When we met her we saw despair and sorrow, but now she is full of hope and light. The Spirit changes people in a very powerful way. I have developed such a love for her and her little 4 year old girl, Olivia, who is so funny and outgoing! Janice is set to be baptized on the 20th, however she might be moving before then to another missionaries area.
This guy Rene, called the Mission and wanted to be baptized. When meeting with him we find out that he has been investigating 5+ years and is finally ready. He is set for the 20th as well. He got up yesterday and bore his testimony! It was great.
(****Another investigator, Samuel from Congo, also got up and bore a powerful testimony yesterday!)
Josh and Corie have investigated in the past, but while we were there we just got to know them and their lives. By the end they had tons of questions that they wanted answered, and they said they are ready to be 100% honest with the missionaries. We went back and taught them and answered a majority of them, and they loved it. The Spirit was very evident in this! It had softened their hearts and allowed them to be open, and we were able to have the words to say and the questions to ask them.
With everything we are staying very busy! Robert/Kinsey are back in town so we are picking up that again!
I have such a love for this work, and seeing people change through the Spirit of God and how much joy and light that is brought into their lives because of it! This is the only way to true and lasting happiness!
