it started out with zone preperation day! we ended up bowling and having a really good time! for most of the missionaries it was the first time they had gone bowling so we had quite a laugh as missionaries overstepped the line and went sliding down the lane, or threw the ball like a baseball, or like a basketball. it was great! here is a picture.
|my first game I bowled a 126 and the|
second like 108 for most of the zone it was their first time bowling!
We had alot of missionaries over running and
slipping down the lanes haha.
We had a great miracle this week! We have been working with a less active family for a very long time, consistently for the last 7 months! There are the two parents and then 8 children under the age of 9. They are the most well behaved children! its amazing! but they were very busy with work and so they were never able to come to church. This last week I turned around during sacrament meeting to see their many beautiful faces sitting in church! I was so happy! The father has started making some changes in his life and hopefully will be able to baptise his two sons that are old enough to be baptized! It is cool to see how the gospel blesses families. It encourages every member in the family to improve no matter how big or small! and then to see them all together during the sacrament and see it all come together, it was just amazing! I know that the spirit worked with them alot during the last 7 months and I was so grateful to be able to see their progression!
last week I told you about Fred, his wife is in America and he was planning on getting baptized in a few weeks and then moving to America to live with his wife. but he decieded to wait until he moves so that his wife can be there when he makes a sacred covenant with Heavenly Father! Its only right for them to be together during on that special day! We will still be teaching him until he goes! so grateful!
We have another investigator that we have been working with, her name is dorothy, she is about 80 years old her daughter, granddaughter, and great granddaughter, were all baptized in the last few years! and her heart was softened to learning the gospel! She is the most amazing investigator, she has a strong belief in God and wants to continue learning about him and so every pamphlet we give her she studies so intently, she reads every scripture and looks up every unkown word until it all makes sense. Its really awesome to see. She was explaining to us what studying feels like and she said that whenever she reads the plan of salvation pamphlet she feels like something is urging her to contunue learning. last week she read it and the book of mormon until 1:00 in the morning. im so blessed to be able to see the gospel change lives.
I love you all
Love Elder Wiser
