May 20, 2013

This week was so awesome!  So we had a member referral that we had taught my first Sunday here in the ward.  Then last Sunday we marked to go visit him with the member who referred him.  This investigator is an 18yr old boy named Kaik, that didn't like his own church. He had been asking his LDS member friend a bunch of questions since our first visit that first Sunday.  So we went back this week and we get there and Kaik had a friend there who's called Patrick.  We taught about the Plan of Salvation... the whole thing and the whole time they were just asking questions and wanting to know more and then when we finally got to the end there was this huge feeling of peace and calm in the room; it was so strong that Patrick said, "wow as soon as you guys came into the room I felt peace."  We then invited Kaik to be baptized on the 1st of June and he accepted.  After that Patrick said “well I was already baptized...but it wasn't with my heart." Elder Rais asked "well will you be baptized again?" He also accepted it was awesome; we went back later in the week and Kaik bore his testimony of how he had always been looking for the truth and when he read the Book of Mormon and prayed he just knew, it was a great miracle this week.
   We also scheduled Carol this week to be baptized on the 1st. Oh Carol is also a referral from a member from another ward who was driving down the road, saw us, stopped and then called us over and the took us to her house. Her boyfriend is getting ready to marry her and she wants to learn more. Basically another miracle that happened.

The whole Zone had an awesome week; so we did something called a BLITZ.  Basically it was a competition to see which companionship could do the most contacts in one day. The prize being that the winner doesn't have to pay for the Zone shirt. Keep in mind that last month AS A ZONE there were 550 contacts made.  This Blitz day alone there were 418 contacts... all IN ONE DAY and this week there were 679 contacts!!!  I was so shocked at how much all the elders worked! The other miracle of the zone was that in the months of March and April the zone baptized 7 people... this week alone the zone baptized 10 people!  I'm just so happy to see the hand of God working here to bring his work forth; it's truly a blessing to be a part of it.  

I love you all and I'm grateful for your prayers!!!
