This week was miracle week! Out of no where an investigator in Tolhuin got married and the next day was baptized! Then by surprise President Rogers called and told the sisters that one of their investigators could get baptized! She had a rough travel towards baptism and had to leave behind her homosexual lifestyle, but she said that she felt so good after. You could see the light in her eyes and the love that she was filled with. It was beautiful.
Well friends, 3 more months. Time to sprint ;)
This week I received the absolute confirmation that God hears and answers our prayers.
Monday night we were walking home, everything had failed that day, no one was home. We decide to use up what little time was left to talk to at least two more people. The last door we knocked on opened and, to our great surprise, let us in. We grew even more surprised as the woman who owned the house explained that she didn't believe in God. Okay... We began to teach, and she offered to read. When she asked questions, she accepted our answers. She did everything that someone who doesn't believe in God doesn't do. Why?
The second visit her sister was present and explained to us the depth of this woman's unbelief. Her sister explained that often she would yell out and accuse God of not helping her, of not filling her home with food or sending someone to do so. One night after a long day she yelled, "Where are you?" Then we knocked on the door. We testified of that we have a Father in Heaven that loves us, and that He sent His Son to save us. We testified that The Son of God suffered for our sins, died, and resurrected! I know my Savior lives, and I know God hears my prayers.
We prayed to see penguins... and we saw PENGUINS!!
