It's the Little Things


     This week started out kind of slow but had a pretty great ending!! We had a meeting with Tara and Sister Mancilla. Sister Mancilla just asked her friend to talk to us so we got to go to her Bagel Shop and talk with her. She read the promise in Moroni 10 and she said she got chills and wants to hear more about it! We are really excited and have been praying for her all week long. We stopped by and saw her again and she is excited about reading and learning. She has a lot of faith and has been through much in the past year but we can see how Heavenly Father has prepared her to hear His message. After that appointment we taught a lady named Liliana. She is from Columbia but has lived here for many years. She said that she has many questions and doesn't know why she wants to talk to us because she usually doesn't. Her Brother in law is a member in Florida and we are so excited. She felt the spirit and we are trying to set up a church tour this week, we know if she can come to the building and feel the spirit it will touch her heart.

     While we were knocking doors this week close to our house we ran into a man named Julio. He from Honduras and doesn't speak a lot of English but we were able to tell him about The Book of Mormon and a Prophet on the earth today. (In Spanish, memorized phrases are great! THANKS MOM!)  I bore my testimony of a few things in Spanish and we just know he felt the spirit. I can't say very much but it was amazing, we handed him over to the elders, but Sister Blaylock and I really felt the sincere desire in him to want to learn and he said he has many friends that want to learn as well. Even though we could only communicate with him a little the spirit was till able to testify to him, the spirit is amazing!

     Then the best of all, we had a lesson with Q last night. (Bui Family) We have been working with them for quite a while now and she has been very confused and they have had trouble keeping their commitments. We stopped by to check up on them last week and she said that she has been reading. So last night we had another appointment with Sister Campbell. The spirit in the lesson was so strong and Sister Campbell and Sister Blaylock and I worked so well together, we could really feel the spirit working through us to speak to Q's heart and to her specific needs. We asked her to kneel down and pray right there and ask God if this was his true church and if she should get baptized. She said a silent prayer and stood up with a sense of peace. She said she was on a cloud because of all the joy that she felt from the spirit and that Heavenly Father told her that it is true and she wants to get baptized. She said thank you so much for not giving up on me. We are so glad that we kept loving her because Heavenly Father had a plan in mind and we get to be lucky enough to be a part of it. We talked to her about covenants and the temple and how that is our ultimate goal and why we want her to have this, because of the true joy that it brings!

      I can't believe that almost another transfer has gone by. Time really is one of the most precious gifts that Heavenly Father blesses us with. I am not ready for this transfer to be done, we are just getting started!

      I forgot to tell you but I drove for the first time a week ago and I was terrified! I would rather not do it again and would not be upset if I didn't have to. Some people in Georgia are crazy with that dangerous piece of metal! 

     Well, I think that is all for this week! Have a great week, relax be safe, have lots of fun and laugh and smile often! LOVE YOU BYE!!!

Peace, prayers and blessin's 

Love Sister Weeks (Rachel)
