This week we were able to see many mighty miracles happen in this corner of the world! And all came about by the help of members.
On Sunday the Bishop asked Sister Jackson and I to visit a part member family who had just moved into the ward, the H–s, who are a Micronesian family who immigrated recently. Brother H’s girlfriend (her name starts with an S…) had been talking with missionaries before and he asked us if we would start teaching her again. We visited them on Monday, and she told us she wanted to be baptized, but she just needs paperwork to come in so she can get married to Brother H! We went back and taught on Thursday, and we brought The Restoration DVD to watch with them. When we came on thursday we met A, her 12 year old cousin who lives with them. He watched the Restoration with us and at the end, when we turned to him to ask if he had any questions, he had tears in his eyes. We asked him how he was feeling, and he said he felt warm and happy inside. We told him that was the Holy Ghost, who tells you if what you’re seeing is true. It was an amazing lesson with them, and Sister H asked if she could keep the movie to watch again and again, and to show A’s parents :)
On Saturday afternoon, we got a text from one of the young men in the ward, C, whose good friend was baptized a little over a week ago. C said “Hey sisters, I have a friend coming to church tomorrow, could you teach her about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ during second hour?” Um absolutely. We talked with her during second hour and the spirit was super strong and she thought the Restoration made complete sense. She’s coming to mutual on Tuesday, a dance on Saturday, and a missionary bonfire activity next Tuesday. She is the best :)
It is so important for members to be involved in missionary work. You have an in with people and friends we don’t have a chance with by just knocking on their door. Will you (members) invite one person to watch a Mormon message or to have dinner with the missionaries? It doesn’t matter the result of the invite, it’s a success if you invite :)
I love you all so much!
