Miracles are Everywhere

April 18, 2016

New transfer! It's been an awesome week jam packed with miracles. The problem is that the better the week, the less time I have to write in my journal cuz I'm way too tired.

Tuesday morning we woke up, I worked out while elder Brink finished packing. Elder Fehoko showed up at about 9 with his gym and we got him all unpacked and headed off to work. We taught J.-crazy deep doctrine lover-and then taught N., and had elder Manarin from the Philippines come help us teach so she could understand a bit better.

Wednesday we had a great district meeting. It was a great day, we met a bunch of potentials and set up appointments. We taught K., who was so ready to be baptized! Then taught N.. She probably won't be baptized on the 23rd, she wants to read more from the Book of Mormon. It's too bad, because she had an answer but her husband kinda changed her mind about the answer not believing that she could get one so fast. When we got home we played pool with Philipe. Elder Fehoko won, he is a pro haha. 

Thursday was busy, after elder Fehoko's language study we had lunch with a ward mission leader, then had a zone introductory meeting. There are 4 missionaries in the zone from Arizona. rad. We taught Brooke and D. (C. was sick) about obedience, the Sabbath day, prayer, and scripture study as commandments. They love the gospel! On our way to dinner, we were bookin it cause we were late and we rode past a lady, and decided to turn around and talk to her anyways. Her name is E., and she hardly knows anything about the gospel. We set up an appointment for 1:00 on Friday. 

Friday was awesome. After weekly planning we went and had lunch with the Blocks and correlated, and I used their computer to make Kaiden's baptism programs. Then at 12:30 E. called and said she was at the church ready to learn. Sick! So we booked it over there and taught her. She's now accepted the date of the 14th to get baptized. Then we
rushed to A. and taught her, she's still doing awesome and said she'd come to church. After that we rushed back to the Block's house and finished the baptism programs, then rushed to K.'s last lesson as a nonmember. We taught a few other people and at the end of the night were headed across a busy road to go home. We crossed in a big break of traffic, and looked left and saw a dude walkin down the sidewalk and kinda stumbling a bit... Then he falls into the road... Then tries to get up and falls further into the road. The cars are getting closer and there's no way they'd see this dude wearing all black lying face down on the pavement, so elder Fehoko and I book it over there and yank him out of the road literally only a few seconds before he would've gotten hit. He was soooo drunk. So we got the cops over there and they were kind enough to take him home. Haha. Just a testimony builder that the Lord can put us In the right place at the right time.

Saturday morning we woke up at 5:20 and went to the temple to watch S. do baptisms for the Dead for the first time. It's so cool to see those that you bring to the truth continue to progress! Also, K. got baptized! It was a great day.

Sunday he was confirmed a member by his uncle and we got to participate. E. was embarrassed because she doesn't own any church clothes so she didn't come to church but tomorrow the relief society president is takin her shopping. So awesome. We taught her about the word of wisdom cuz we felt that would be her biggest struggle, and she agreed to live it and said she knew it'd be the right thing to do.

Miracles are everywhere, just gotta find em.
