What an awesome week. We had some amazing lesson with R. He is doing well. He set a goal of being baptized in March. It is so exciting for him. He is also reading in the Book of Mormon. He really likes that it is a story. He said it’s pretty easy to understand once you get started. He reads it out of the Chinese one first. Then he reads it from the English one.
Wednesday was a miracle day!!! The 13th, I could really feel Dan with us this day. I am not sure if it is his anniversary this day. But we were able to see a lady who we tracted into last week. (the lady who we shared about families) she didn't answer the door. We were about to walk away and then I heard a voice "stay a little longer and put the Plan of Salvation pamphlet through the mail slot)" So we did. As we were writing on it, she opened the door. She was really happy to see us. Later that day it was a blizzard we walked to a potential Investigators house 4 miles. I felt like we should walk. When we arrived she wasn't in. Sister Lewis said we should knock some random doors. I said sure. We were walking and I felt like we should walk down this street. We knocked on some doors. Nothing...and then we knocked on M door. She let us in and we were able to teach her the Restoration. Her kids were there and it was great. They really liked it. She told us for some reason she just remembers Joseph Smith. She doesn't know why she remembers that....But we do! :) It was a miracle that we found her. Hopefully the spirit touched her heart. It was a miracle that she let us in. That rarely happens in England!!!! :) yay!! We taught J that night with the Chinese member from Nott’s 1. We had a really good lesson with him. The Spirit was really strong. We watch the Restoration DVD, and invited him to be baptized. He accepted and picked the day. The 25th of February. Miracle, next Monday. We need to teach him everything else. But he is defiantly feeling the spirit. He knows that the Book of Mormon is true. That is what started it all. He said it helps people. Why would it be a bad book if it helps people know that Jesus is there?
Zone Conference was great. They really focused on Accountability, and Attributes of Christ. It was a very spiritual mtg. In missionary work you will have bad days and say this is really hard. But when you account to the Lord at the end of the day; it makes it all worth it. You know He is listening, that you are trying your best. And say “what more can I do". I really want to work on this and really gain those Christ-like attributes.
How amazing is that!! Things are going well here in Nottingham!! :) I love it! I know this gospel is true. We have a loving Heavenly Father, who wants us all to live with Him again. We have an Elder brother, Our Savior and Redeemer who came into the world for you and me. To give us the option to use the Atonement. He is there to help us to make us stronger. the Atonement is amazing. It not only helps the sinner but also the sinned against. When we use the Atonement we will have peace. I am so grateful for the knowledge of the Savior. This gospel is amazing and it is blessing the lives of His children.
Just to let you know this next week we might not have p-day I am not sure. Transfers are different. They are cutting it off 4 days early, so we have transfers next Saturday the 2 of March. So I don’t know if we will be having a p-day next week or not
Love you!!! :)
