You Never Know!
On Friday, we were looking for new investigators from the previous contacts we had done while contacting more people. We left a privada when I saw a lady carrying her 6 month old daughter. I had the thought to contact her like we always do with every single person, because we're supposed to talk with everyone. So I did, and it turns out she was interested and said we could come back in a few hours. So we ate lunch, and went back to visit her and started talking about God, to understand her religious background a bit. We shared all of lesson 1, the Restoration which she understood very well and was in agreement. We asked if she would pray and ask God if this is true, and she said, “No, I already know it is!” So we put an appointment for next week, and committed to come to church next Sunday!
We also had our zone conference and interviews with President this week which went very well. During the conference I just felt so motivated to baptize. President spoke about Joseph Smith and the Restoration, and told us about 20 times distinctly that He knows without a single doubt that this is true, that this is the church of Jesus Christ. I add my testimony that I know this church is true, and that it is led by Prophets and Apostles who receive direct revelation from Jesus Christ!
We just had a miracle happen. We were returning to the area when our investigator Madec called us, explaining that she is ready to be baptized this Saturday because her Mom is coming to see her! Together with her, we are expecting Alex, and possibly Manuel to be baptized the same day! Its a big testimony to me that after lots of work and patience, the miracles come. We are expecting 3 miracle baptisms this weekend!
