Week 47: Careful what you pray for...‏

Dearest everyone,

Happy Monday!  Hope you`re all doing well and loving living the gospel!

I`m a little short on time, so here goes:

-I had a thought this week... Be careful what you pray for.  We prayed ALL WEEK LONG to find Miguel, our most positive investigator, and he seemed to have dropped off the face of the planet.  Then on Saturday, we finally found him for an appointment in the early afternoon and taught the Word of Wisdom (and he doesn`t have any issues with it because his kidneys have been bothering him lately and he can`t drink coffee, woohoo!).  After that lesson, we proceeded to run into him about four more times during the day.  God was just making up for all those fervent prayers... be careful what you pray for.

If you pray for patience, you will contact three devout Jehovah`s Witness couples in your search for families to teach, and they will contend with you about the Plan of Salvation.

If you pray for service opportunities, you will spend two hours hand-washing two giant barrels full of dirty clothes for a recent convert who had an emergency appendectomy.

If you are hungry and pray for Heavenly Father to provide some food, you will be gifted 19 mangos in one day.  Therefore, be careful what you pray for.

Hahaha, it`s been a good week.  Very trying, but that`s what makes us stronger!  It`s still hot.  Several of our investigators who had attendances at church have decided they don`t want to be baptized.  We`re dropping a bunch of people and searching for lots of new investigators.  But we also saw tender mercies of the Lord!  Most of them have to do with food, haha...

1) Hna. Melixza made us dinner!  The third time we`ve had dinner as a companionship, that is to say, in the last ten weeks.

2) Hno. Mario made us tuna sandwiches and gave us red soda at 8:30 on Sunday night when we were famished and exhausted.  And he came to church in a white shirt and tie and received the Aaronic priesthood!

3) Hno. Oscar has been great about accompanying us in our hopes to find Miguel at home.  He came with us four times this week and wasn`t even mad when we didn`t find him and had to return home in vain.

Anyway, time to finish.  I know that Heavenly Father knows and loves each of us.  I have felt His love in this week!  I hope you have too!

I hope these are the right pictures... Tan lines and mangos!
