We have been so busy this week! It is such a blessing to have people who are ready to receive the gospel. We have been doing our best to improve our communication with the ward and stake leaders. We have seen great miracles from putting forth extra effort to help the work move forward.
The coolest thing that happened this week was a random invitation to attend a Stake Priesthood meeting at 7 am on Sunday morning. My companion and I talked it over and decided it would be a good idea to meet all of the priesthood leaders because my companion was new in the area.
When we went, the Stake President shared an awesome story. To give it context, we had visited him on a Saturday night the weekend before. He said that the evening we went by, he was not feeling well at all. He had a huge day planned for the next day (Sunday) with many of meetings and councils.
When we knocked on the door, he said over the pulpit that he was glad to see us but he wasn’t happy to see us. After talking with him, we left a prayer and went for a ride in his vintage car. Remember, during this visit he was not feeling well at all. Right when we got up to go for a ride in the car, he shared in the meeting that his pain had gone away during the visit. We had no idea about this during the visit and it was humbling to know we had been instruments in God’s hand to help him with his challenges.
He shared about the importance of being worthy to have the Holy Ghost with us individually and how being in peoples’ homes is how we can help bring the Holy Ghost into their lives. He is a great man and loves missionary work.
Have an awesome week!
