9/21/2015 amazing week



This week was amazing. There was a lot of amazing things that I experienced. The first of the week was not the greatest however, and ill tell you why. We were supposed to have a lesson with one of our investigators on Tuesday, but she cancelled because she said she got an appendicitis in the middle of the night and she said she was also sick. Which I believed at first, so we rescheduled for the next day(Wednesday). Then she canceled again because she had to go get her medication. We asked how long that would be and she said she didn't know because she had to, "run some errands". why would she go and do some errands when she just got her appendix out the day before?? Did she lie to us? We don't know what we are going to do now.  

On Wednesday we had dinner in Pinesdale with C. family. C. was not there for the dinner. While we were having dinner, C.'s mom asked us how the lesson with C. went  a week ago. We told her the whole story of which I wrote in my letter last week. Her mom was over joyed because C. never told her mom that she made the decision to be baptized. Her mom was elated. After our coordination meeting the same night. We went back into Pinesdale for a lesson with a recent convert family. We didn't really share a lesson there, the mom talked about her conversion story (which is amazing!!). People in Pinesdale have the greatest testimonies! They are the strongest testimonies that I have ever heard in my entire life. We could have spent hours there in their home but we had to go home for the night. It was a very good day on Thursday. 

On Friday we met with C. again. We asked her if she was still interested in being baptized, and she still is. We asked her if she would share her story on how she came to the conclusion on her decision to be baptized. She said that it started with the second super powerful lesson that we had with her when I was with elder Parker. She said that when she went home, she listened to a song that came up randomly on the radio, and it was talked about the same exact thing that we talked about in the lesson as well as it perfectly described the situation that she was in at the time of her conversion. It was probably the coolest thing that I have ever heard. She said, "you always here about people and their conversion stories where the listened to a song or something like that. I always thought that it was weird, BUT IT HAPPENED TO ME!!!!" It was a good meeting with her. 

Saturday was probably one of the most spiritual lesson that I have had on my mission. We met with the A. family Sunday night with brother J. We had the plan to show them the movie, "On The Lords Errand." We proceeded to watch the move. When it was over, it was pretty silent in the home. We asked what they liked about the video and what stuck out to them. All the while when we were talking, The dad was sitting quietly. I asked him, "brother A. what's going through your mind? You seem like you are contemplating a lot, like you have a lot on your mind." He sat silently for about 20 seconds and looked at brother J.  (who is about his age and he grew up in pinesdale as well.) and said, "(name excluded), what were we thinking?!?!" After we left from the lesson, When he said that to me, I knew exactly what he was trying to say. He was basically saying 'we have been deceived our whole lives!?!?'" Brother A. new at that moment that President Monson was the true prophet on the earth! The spirit was so strong in their home. They are a super solid family. 

This week was pretty amazing! I love seeing all of these wonderful miracles. I hope that you had a good week as well.
