The first random door we knocked on, the guy let us in and agreed to have us back to teach him about the Book of Mormon! A few minutes later we ended up asking a part-member teenage girl if she would be interested in learning more about the Church. She said that this is something she has been thinking about lately and talking to her family about. She agreed to have us back to teach her and gave us her contact information.
Later, in the night we went to do Power Hour and contacted a less-active who is having a baby soon and agreed to have us back over as well. After Power Hour, we went to an appointment which wasn't home. Having to come up with effective things to do on the spot by myself when things fall through is also another point of extreme stress for me. But for whatever reason we ended up at the home of a prospective elder a few blocks away. He had a feeling we were coming and we invited him to come out with us for the rest of the night. As we were walking to a member's home, we passed by a house a less-active, part-member family and decided to stop by. The wife, who is not a member of our Church answered the door but had a sinus infection- so we offered her a blessing and she accepted! We were able to give her a wonderful blessing and explain about the Priesthood! She agreed to have us back as well.
After that experience, the prospective Elder commented on how he wanted to get worthy so he could give his first blessing. We had a great experience with him talking all about it for the rest of the night. We talked to people on the street and met 3 new potential investigators! This prospective Elder even chimed in with his testimony and wanted to try a couple approaches. It was so cool!
That is just one example of that happening. There were two more days of this! Although we didn't have incredible numbers to report at the end of the week, I feel that we had more success and had more of the Spirit during those three days alone than in entire weeks combined in which we may have reported more impressive statistics. I loved it!
The two baptisms on Saturday were AMAZING! It was a profound spiritual experience! Things worked out just how they needed to, and that is the best!
Thank you all for the e-mails, support, encouragement, and love! It is much needed!
