Another week


This week went really good.  The volcano is smoking a ton, the rain stopped and the sun came out, and several of the people we are teaching are progressing well.

We have several investigators now, more than I've ever had in my mission, that have a sincere interest in the gospel and are coming to church.  The branch is doing a great job at fellow shipping them and the branch is growing, which is a definite answer to prayer.  This last Sunday several investigators came and many members who have been less active have begun to return.

Cool experience this week.  We did exchanges with the other companionship here in my sector.  My companion and I were working our way towards the house but we still had about half an our of work. It's always a bit difficult to contact that late at night. We walked past a house with the lights on and then, after passing it, we both felt like we needed to turn around and knock on the door.  Fortunately, my comp needed to use the restroom haha, so we knocked and asked if he could use their restroom. They let us in and I talked with the woman inside.  My comp came out and we conversed a little bit with her and before leaving the house we showed the video Because He Lives.  After the video, she was quiet and then thanked us for coming over.  She said a good friend had just died and she had been feeling sad.  The video helped her feel better and she asked us to come back and teach her more. Heavenly Father knows His children and definitely uses His servants according to His will.

Have a great week!
