Let me just start off by saying how miraculous this week was! We were so packed with lessons and things that the week just flew by! Two of our investigators, are really progressing! This week they: Came to the family history center, met with us for a few lessons, came to the Relief Society Conference, and came to church! And...they loved it all! So you could say that we're pretty excited for them!
This week we also taught a few other families that are showing a lot of potential. One of them is a part-member family and the father who is a member hasn't been to church for 48 years...haha so that was a little bit of a shock when we first found out! But his wife and daughter are both interested in learning, so we just started teaching them all from the beginning. A miracle from that family is that their nurse was also interested in learning about the gospel, so we set up an appointment with her and her husband. We were about 30 miles from Washington, where we live, when we met them, but the nurse told us that she also lived in Washington. Haha and we later found out that she lived literally right next to our house!
Now I'll talk a little bit about conferences. First of all, we had our Branch Conference yesterday and there were several inspiring messages shared. Also, we had food afterwards which is always a nice bonus! Secondly, this upcoming weekend is General Conference. It will be broadcast on television and also online at lds.org. The Lord Himself will be giving us counsel and guidance through His servants. I exhort each of you to attend several sessions with questions and an open heart. I know that as you do, you will receive revelation concerning your life and how you can better it through our Savior. This is the Lord's church and He speaks in our day.
I love you all and hope your weeks are marvelous!
P.S. This week we were walking around, talking to people and this cat ran up to us and just started following us! I decided that his name was Fido and he followed us for several blocks. We realized that he was probably hungry and so we stopped by a less-active lady's house who loves cats and she brought some cat food right out for him! She was happy to add him to her collection of cats!
