Three in a Row...

Hi Family,

A good story:
This last transfer was my hardest by far , but this last Saturday made up for it completely.  We were following up with a potential and it ended up falling through and not working out, so we were about to leave and I got the impression that we needed to stay and tract the opposite side of the street.  The first door we knock on we find a great young man whose girlfriend is taking the missionary lessons and he was interested himself and was wanting to get a hold of the Book of Mormon. We taught him a little bit and setup a return appointment.  The next door we knock on is a young women who has met with missionaries before, but is worried about church because she believed her last church to be true, but didn't feel that it was, and she didn't want to go through one of those experiences again.  We shared with her our testimonies and gave her a pamphlet of the testimony of Joseph Smith and told her to read it and we would check up with her again.  The next door we knock on is another young woman who was very energetic and taught her a short lesson and she accepted to go to church this coming Sunday.

After we walked away from all of that we were just blown away!  I have never had a more successful hour and a half in my mission up to this point.  It is amazing how the Lord works through ignorant young men such as us to proclaim His Gospel, and what's more amazing is the He makes it work.

love to all,
