The Super Bowl
The way I would describe the cereal I didn’t have on Sunday Morning because it was Fast Sunday. What a day and week to be alive though! Miracles are happening all around us! Of all the times that we could be here, we have all the essentials, the Gospel, electricity, running water, etc. I certainly stand all amazed at the love our Heavenly Father has for us! My first question, is everyone now conscious from their super food coma? Were the commercials super? Or were you super knocked out? Did the Super Sandwich come out? Was there a super supper? It sufficeth me to say that it was a super day and week for us, and it appears so for y’all as well! Let met run through the Super Ups and Downs!
The biggest miracle that we had this week was divinely orchestrated by the Lord. It was on Wednesday night, our team up called in sick with the flu. We scrambled to gather a team up because we were going to see our top investigator, and we needed someone that could help him come to church. We felt inspire to call our Elders Quorum President. As a presidency they meet every Wednesday and go out on visits. One of his counselors was able to go out with us, who is a Recent Convert of about a year. He was the perfect team up. He lived in south Chicago, grew up in a gang, and totally flipped his life around with the Gospel, and now he is preparing to go and be sealed in the temple. He was in tears sharing his story with Will, and then boldly and powerfully proclaimed, “That Book will change your life, its true!” Will was certainly touched and is ready to come to church this week. God will always give the increase! Will is still moving towards his baptismal date!
We had an awesome training out in Dallas (not Texas), with the Powder Springs Zone and Cartersville Zone. I got some intel on the happenings in Kennesaw Mountain that made me so happy. Diane is moving towards baptism, as is David here in the next week. It seems like things are going well! It was really good to see many familiar faces too! The training was great, and President Harding is one very inspired man! This is certainly a gospel of grand expectations! I wouldn’t have it any other way! High expectations are the only way to go in this life!
We are pleased to say that our coats are still rain proof!
We were able to meet with an incredible lady named Rosie. I don’t remember if I mentioned her in last week’s email, but she has lost her husband recently and moved two weeks ago to escape it. She was totally led here to meet us. She actually explained how the desire of her heart is to be free of guilt and shame from the decisions of her past. She set her own baptismal date even. She even recounted Moroni’s promise to us, and firmly committed to find out if the Book of Mormon is true. God works in mysterious ways! Many are prepared and stand in need of what we have!
Well that is a wrap! Thanks for the email and the joy that I felt hearing about y’alls week! Keep up the good work! Fight the good fight! Finish the course! Love you all so very much! Please let me know what I can do to best help! Have a blessed up week!
