It was such a great week. I am not sure where to begin!
I am loving Idaho and especially the Twin Falls 10th ward. This ward is filled with great people that I have come to love a lot.
Elder Payne and I really relied on the Lord a lot this week and it made a very big difference in the work. Our days and hours were filled with people to see and promptings on where to go!
Met this guy, John, who is a less-active that is struggling but amidst tears he told us he wants to come back and be better. He has many friends in this ward and that will be a big help to him!
So as we were leaving an investigators house I noticed in the rear view mirror a lady trying to flag us down. We got out and talked to them. They just moved in and don't have many possessions. She told us that her mom has been reading the BofM and she would like to as well. We introduced her to the Book of Mormon and taught a little about Jesus Christ. Very prepared people and we are teaching her, her mom and her son now.
An amazing experience this week happened as Elder Payne and I were driving down the road. We saw someone pulled over off to the side so we got out to help. We met a young man and found out his car was fine but he was struggling with what to do with his life. He even had thoughts of not living any more. We took him to the church and took him into the chapel. Had a very powerful spiritual experience that I will not forget easily! We all felt the Savior's love there and this young man offered a very powerful prayer before we left. He later told us that moments before we pulled over off the road, he had been praying to God for a sign of what to do with his life. I was so touched that God had sent us to this young man's aid.
God really is aware of us. He loves us more than we know. He answers our prayers, sometimes through other people in our lives. It is up to all of us to be worthy of the companionship of the Holy Ghost. So that if and when we are prompted, we may recognize the prompting and follow it so that we may bless someone else's life!
