On Monday we started doing the Harrison Reading Program with someone. It's this cool program that teaches people to read using the Book of Mormon. We tracted for a little bit and the first door we knocked on we found a miracle! We did our little thing "Hi, we're missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, have you heard of it before?" The guy that answered the door said that he had, and that he was a member! He told us that his name was ---, there aren't any ---’s on the branch directory, which means that his records are somewhere else! He invited us in and introduced his wife, ---, we asked her if she was a member and she said "Not yet." I was so excited to hear that response!
Tuesday we had an appointment in another town, so we decided to tract there a little bit, we were just about to go home we knocked on one more door before we got to the car and they let us in! After that we were finally able to contact one of our potential investigators, ---, who we have been trying to contact for a month! We taught her a short lesson and set up an appointment to come back the next day when we could teach her and her husband together!
Wednesday we had our return appointment with --- and ---, we had our Branch Mission Leader and his wife come to the lesson, they said the perfect things, like members always do! After we said the prayer we were sitting there chatting for a couple more minutes and --- said "Would you like a lemon bar?" We were floored! It was so perfect and so funny to us for some reason! We think she's going to be a Relief Society President one day ;)
We also had our return appointment with --- and her husband J. We taught them the Plan of Salvation (http://www.mormon.org/beliefs/plan-of-salvation). Normally when we get to the Three Kingdoms of Glory people ask if we don't believe in Hell, but J confirmed that Heavenly Father only dwells in the first kingdom then said "Well, that makes sense because I've never thought of hell as fire and brimstone, but as being without God." We were blown away!!!
On Thursday we were able to contact some investigators that moved from Bartlesville to Pawhuska, we were so excited because we had been trying to contact them all of last transfer!
On Sunday I got to call home!! That was so good, but super weird at the same time! We also saw some investigators we haven't seen in about a month! Needless to say this week was really good.
It is so cool to see how Heavenly Father blesses us when we are doing his will, it is also cool to see when he answers prayers. I know that we wouldn't have been able to contact most of those people if we hadn't have been praying for it.
I hope you all have a good week! Look out for answered prayers, you'll be surprised what you find!
