To start off,we had Zone Activity. haha definitely did Hunger Games... where one companionship had to find another copmanionship. We did it in a legit forest. SO COOL. Anyways so we were driving back and we got back into our area right at 6 and we were hungry. We wanted to get food but we decided not to because we needed to get to our appointments. That night, we got to see some investigators that we havent seen in a while!! We saw Yvette and she is still preparing for and thinking of baptism!! Then we saw Francis who apparently was going to get baptized before. She is really busy though and we finally found her at home. Then she gave us pizza. BLESSINGS for being obedient!! :)
OKay I dont have much time so I am going to focus on the other amazing miracles we had this week. So for weeks and weeks we have been trying to get ahold of this less active family. WEEKS. They would never open the door and they dont come to church. Nothing. Everytime we went over though we would leave a nice note. Then we started heart attacking people. Then onewe were trying to contact them and happened to be there right as the Hermana was getting home. We set up an appointment for !! came and we had a member come out with us. We drove to their house, with doubts that they would even be there. We wait a few minutes. And a few more minutes. AND THEN THEY OPENED THE DOOR AND LET US IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! whattt??? Such a miracle. We shared a scripture about the Atonement and then talked about reading the scriptures as a family. She said that it made her excited or gave her animos para hacerlo!! Yay!! man we were stoked. We told the WML about it and he was stoked too!! So awesome. Then we went and had a lesson with Xavier and Heidi. I dont know if i have talked about them. oh yes i have! they were the referral. So we taught them the Plan of Salvation and it was the most amazing lesson. One of the most spiritual. At the end, Xavier said, "Thank you guys so much for coming over! Really there is a different feeling when you guys are here. Almost heavenly. It feels really nice!" AHHHH!!!! i couldnt stop smiling the entire lesson!! And then he offered to send the closing prayer!! He told us he was athiest the first time we talked to him and then he wanted to pray. SO AWESOME. He also accepted a date for the !!! please pray for him!!! bad news is they werent able to go to church and we got a call from Xaviers mom telling us they didnt want to participate. Well his wife mostly. But we arent losing faith!!!! He can still be baptized!! It was just so awesome though.
Basically it was just an amazing week and I dont think words can describe how I feel about it. I just love this work so much. Its hot here. And its a lot of work. But I love every single second of it. I thought for a second today about going home and it made me cry. This is my home. I love this so much and I wouldnt trade all the bad and good times for anything!! :) Thank you for all your prayers and love and support! Love you all!
Con amor, Hermana Dorian
