Seeing miracles and blessing all over . . . .
This week a lot of really great things happened! First of all, our investigator Belkis told us that she was talking to a friend about us and the gospel! :) She said that her friend is going through a lot of problems and told her that we could help. Wow! The day after she told us that we went to the house of this friend (named Gimena). They ended up letting us in and we had a great lesson with her and her spouse. She told us that she has investigated basically every other church and is still looking for right one to join. :) We are here to help! She also was going to go with us to church but ended up leaving town the day before because of family troubles. We are planing on meeting a lot with her when she gets back!
Okay....confession. My companion and I didn't go to church this week. BUT there is an explanation. We went to the house of the investigator family, Mendez, before church to go with them. However, within minutes of our arrival, one of their daughters started to have convulsions (spelling?). This was the first time that something like this has happened with her so the family was really scared and nervous. The mom was saying prayers and so were we. After a few minutes the daughter was a little better but her parents ended up taking her to the hospital.
Hermana Eustaquio and I stayed with the rest of their family because they were all crying and uneasy. We ended up making them breakfast and watching the movie about Joseph Smith. It turned out to be a great opportunity to help one of the other daughters to strengthen her testimony about Joseph Smith. When the parents returned they told us the doctors said that everything is normal and are not sure what happened. They have to go back another day to do more tests. Later on in the evening we returned with some members to give her a blessing of health. It was a scary experience for the family but I know God had a purpose with it and we feel like they are more open to our message and invitations now.
We are seeing miracles and blessings all over! I know God has a perfect plan for every single one of us. If we trust in Him and give Him our will, He will make us something better and more incredible then what we could ever do on our own. I love my Heavenly Father so much! I know that He sent His son Jesus Christ to show us what we need to do to have real happiness in this life and and live with Him again in the life to come. :)
Love you all!
