Near the end of the week, we realized that we had a weekly goal to have 3 new investigators, and that we didn't have any yet. We prioritized following up on solid potential investigators with the little time we had the rest of the week. Yesterday, we had a true miracle! One of our potential investigators, Jake, whom we had texted a few days before, apologized for not responding because he didn't have credit on his phone, and he asked what time we wanted to meet up! We were so happy!
That evening, we had an awesome second lesson with him, teaching The Plan of Salvation, and he even accepted a baptismal date for December 9th!! He is only 18 but he is so solid. He and his little brother live on their own right now, and it seems like he has had some hard times lately, so he is really giving the gospel a chance and keeping commitments! He is so cool!
That was the biggest miracle of the week that helped me realize that Heavenly Father is going to help us reach our goals (or help us get closer than we would on our own anyway) when we are working smart and doing all we can to meet them. He always pulls through with the miracles. Besides that, we also were able to do some finding in Jindabyne for the first time this week. It is almost 2 hours away and Sister Tan took us. It was really good! We got quite a few potential investigators, the people there are really open to learning, which is great!
Well, out of time, but hope everyone has a great week this week! You can make it a great one by reading the Book of Mormon every day. That is a promise! (even if it's just for 5 minutes)
Love you all!
