Week #79

Hello Everyone!
This week was a stretching one. Most of our appointments fell through. Everything fell through this week so we worked very diligently in our contact area. We put in a lot of time there, we are busy finishing up a contact area that elders had left before completion and this week we finished it. We mostly finished it. IT has gotten to the point where we are just walking in circles and we can't find the houses that are marked down. But we have found so many people who otherwise were not home. I felt very good about it. A lot of seeds get planted and I know that we are doing the Lords work. This week was drenched with celestial experiences. Most of which were in our contact area. One of them and perhaps the most influential was a couple days ago where everything fell through and we were contacting all day trying our best to get every single person. It was about 7:30 and we went to the last house on one of the last streets that we just hadn't felt like it was a good time to contact it but it was the last one so we squared up and did it. Honestly I think we felt that way because the people looked extremely uninterested in anything, especially religion. But we went and we talked with that family, Christ-loving man for 30 minutes and he had so many questions and wanted us to come back. HE was a dutch man who moved away from the Netherlands because of the ridicule they get for believing in God. We got his info and are going back. That whole day was so hard and we were tired and done because no one was home or wanted to listen. But the Lord wanted to see if we would be diligent and we found Amulek in Ammonihah, the very last house. It was an amazing experience. 

This week I get to go to Aruba to do companion exchanges so I am really excited about that!
