BOOK OF MORMON QUILT
There is a lady who has been taught for like 6 months now by the Elders, and they referred her to us in hopes that a fresh set of missionaries would help. She believes the church is true, and the whole Ward already knows her, but she had such a good baptism experience previously that she didn't want to do it again. We studied LOTS for her and came across D&C 22. We stuck strictly to scriptures and by the end of the lesson she just looked as us and knew exactly what she needed to do. We didn't even have to invite her. All she said was "OK I'll pray about a date." Bummer thing is she won't actually pick a date or let us set one. But it was a huge step forward! The scriptures brought so much power and clarity.
There is another investigator we have been teaching, and we both had the feeling that we maybe should drop her. But at the end of the lesson she told us her daughter had stolen her Book of Mormon and had it under her pillow. She had been reading and praying every single night and has felt a big difference in her life since doing so. She approached her mom and said, "we need to go to the Mormon church."Her daughter is too nervous to meet with us right now, but such a huge testimony again, of the power of scriptures!
We taught the Book of Mormon class this week on studying scriptures and the relief society lesson was on scripture study. One of the women commented that her husband loved and knew the scriptures so well and because of that their children grew up with a firm knowledge of them too. She said despite her children's rebellious nature, their foundation of the scriptures has made it incredibly difficult for them to leave the church. #scripturepower
This week we handed the two brother investigators over to the elders. It will be a better teaching situation. But one of them is planning on being baptized this month! Yay!
We are stressed, but oh so #blessed. :)
Have a good week!
