October 13, 2014 HAIL
Another rainy rainy rainy week! One day it started hailing a TON it looked like snow all over the ground, because it was covered in hail! Afterwards, it started POURING and the water filled the streets and the houses! we were going to ward correlacion and the street to cross to the chapel was filled up to our knees!!!! So we took a long way around until we found a street only up to our ankles haha. SO much fun!
To clear up some confusion last week, my favorite talk was Gavarret not Godoy. Sorry I got confused too many names to remember!
Had a super sweet lesson with the family that had their house burned a couple years ago, remember that awesome story? Well this week we were teaching their little boys and one of them, Jonaton, is blind. And he feels and follows the Spirit so easily. He is so amazing. As we were talking about prophets and answering all their questions, Jonaton asked if prophets wrote the Book of Mormon. We told him yes, and that he could ask God that very question in prayer and know for himself if the Book of Mormon is true. And he told us that he already receieved his answer. When the Elders were teaching them years ago, they told him that he could ask God. So right then, he excused himself fom the lesson to go to the bathroom to ask God if the Book of Mormon was true. And he felt in his heart that it was. Oh my heart melted listening to his story. I love this family so much and am so grateful for the chance to get to know them!
Later, we were teaching with yet another bombdot com member and talking to one of our investigators of the importance of prayer. The member shared her testimony of how prayer helps her, a very protective mom, feel confident in lettingher girls go to school. And the investigator said Thats so me!!!! Thats totally what I need tooo! And then she asked the member if she was a missionary too. The member laughed and said kind of...I just dont have a plaque to show it.
In what ways are you a missionary? In our baptism, we take the name of Christ upon us. And although you might not have a name tag to show it, you can show it in your life, your love, your example. Remember who you are and who you represent.
I know the Lord lives and guides us today. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. And I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet to help us in our way to the kingdom of God.
I hope you all have a great week!
Also, Heidi told Heather that she and her companion tried to go shopping, but all the shops were closed due to a holiday so they went to McDonalds where Heidi proceeded to share with her the plot line for the first two Harry Potter books!
