We saw a wonderful miracle this week! And I can't wait to tell you, so I'll just get right in! First of all, our District decided to do a fast on Tuesday for our area, so that we could find more people to teach and that those we were teaching would feel the Spirit. As the week progressed, things were going well, and we ended up seeing several people on Saturday, so that was nice. But the miracle happened on Sunday.
We were sitting in Sacrament meeting when a family who we had invited to church walked in! I had never met them before, but it was wonderful to see them! They stayed throughout all of church and we even had a lesson with them afterwards! The Spirit was so strong and both the Father and Mother of the family accepted baptismal dates! There's a few of the first miracles. But here's the biggest one.
Shawn, the father, told us during the lesson that he's been a drinker for his whole life...but that he woke up on Wednesday with absolutely no desire to drink. That was the morning after our fast. What a wonderful miracle from our Father in Heaven! I know that fasting and prayer is real. I look forward to working with this family and I am grateful for a Father in Heaven who loves each of us! I love you all and hope that your week will be full of joy and happiness!
P.S. My companion and I got some girl scout cookies this week!
