So in the MTC we had a mission president come talk to us. He told us one thing that he does with his missionaries in his mission. Whenever an appointment fails contact the first person you see or the houses around the investigators house. He said that Heavenly Father has a reason for everything. He also said, "Since I have told them this, I have been calling each zone leader and asking if they have been having "LITTLE MIRACLES". This is what he calls it when they have success from doing what he asked.... and each week the missionaries would report to him their little miracles.
My companion and I had a LITTLE MIRACLE this week. We ended up not bringing anyone to church, all of our investigators flaked, but instead of feeling down we did what this mission president suggested. We saw an ally that we have never tracted before. As we were tracting we didn't really have success but then we got to the last house and a woman let us in. Her name is Dionesia and she is awesome. We sang and prayed and immediatly started talking about baptism. She said, "If I'm 100 percent sure about this church I will be baptized." My companion left not thinking that she was going to progress but we went back the other day and before we could say anything to her she told us she wants to get baptized. =) We have a date set for this 28 de febrero! She is dominate and is gaining a strong testimony of the church. I know the Lord is preparing people to be baptized into His kingdom. Our job as missionaries (and when I say missionaries I mean both fulltime missionaries and members) is to seek and find these lost brothers of ours. I have no doubt in my mind that there are people ready to recieve this beautiful gospel and we as members need to rid ourselves of selfishness and share this wonderful gospel with others. We need to open our mouths and share it because I know there are more people like Dionesia out there.
Dad, I know you always wanna know how the weather is so I'll let you know right now it is beautiful and sunny and its been like this for a while. I'm glad you guys have been having sun, too.=) Well I'd better get going. Oh yeah, the mission President has been trying to call you guys to get grandpa's number to talk about the oil vials. President Romney really wants to talk to grandpa so make sure you guys pick up ok? I love you all and I hope you all have a great week.
