We can all be FREED
How is the month of February!! The month of love!!???
This week has been so great. My back and neck still hurt but I am thankful that Sister F and I were able to go to Physical Therapy. We were both given a few stretches to do that will help! I have been so full of joy this week as we have been able to work.
To start this week was GREAT AND FULL OF JOY!!
To share a quick miracle or two, Sister Franks and I were making calls one day while we were in our house and we talked to a man named Henry on the phone. We had called him a few times, he told us he wanted to learn more and so we setup an appointment for him to meet us at the church building. When he meet us at the church building he said that he remembered talking with and visiting with missionaries when he was a small kid. He said they even went to the Visitors Center. When we asked him the last time he talked with missionaries he said it was when he was 10 and he is now almost 30. Well we meet with Henry and invited him to come to church and on Sunday he came. He also brought his girlfriend who also has talked with missionaries before about 5 years ago. The Lord helped us to find Henry I know it!
We have been praying specifically for 20 conversations all day and to ask people to be baptized and we are doing that. The other night we needed 4 more conversations so we said a prayer as we left our investigators house and we decided to walk in the opposite direction of our car. When we followed that inspiration we found 4 new people to teach. Two couples! One of them recently lost her mother and just moved into the trailer park we were visiting. She said that she loved hearing messages about Christ and invited us back for this week. She said that she needs to find peace.
We went to the Visitors Center with Lupe again this week to focus on the Atonement. We walked around and saw the Witnesses of Christ and Lupe could feel the spirit so strong. She said it is really helping her to keep her desire to stay clean from all of the things she used to use. She has been clean for a week! She also started AA classes this week with a member of our ward so that she can get help and support. We are so excited to see where Lupe goes. We know that she can continue to work towards baptism once her body is ready to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. When we were at the Visitors Center we watched a Mormon Message called We Can ALL BE FREED. WATCH THIS VIDEO.
We also had one of our less active members at church this weekend. She told us she wants to start coming back and go to the temple for the first time. She shared her testimony and so did her daughter Samantha. They both have such strong testimonies and we are so excited to continue to work with their family and help them prepare to go to the temple.
We also had a lesson about Faith with one of my favorite families! We planted seeds and the little kids have been watering them and they are growing!! It is so cute because each time we go to see them we stop and see what they look like and how they are doing. Their family is growing so strong as well.
Also, I got a new companion this week she is from Texas! Her name is Sister O. She is the other Hispanic in all my future pictures. :)
Love Hermana Weller
