I can't even begin to explain this week. The sweat, the tears, thestruggles, the prayers, the Spirit, the miracles, the truth. We saw somany miracles this week. In total, we taught 25 lessons, got 3 peopleon date for baptism, 1 person at church, and did 8 hours of Service.It was incredible!!!! We have been blessed so much by God, and it isbecause of Him that we have seen the miracles!There was one night were we felt to go see a couple- Tom and Joanne.We knocked on their door and they let us right in! Their living roomwas full of Buddhas, and it was kinda weird. They were the firstpeople I met who were Buddhist. We had a really good conversationabout religion in general, and the spirit was very present there. Wetaught them of the Plan of Salvation. They both had many questionsabout our church, and it was very apparent that we were supposed to bethere. We left with good feelings, and even set up a lesson for today,but it fell through, but it's all good!Aredelia is progressing so much!! She said that she listens to theBook of Mormon during work, and as such, she read up to 1 Nephi 7!! Sevenchapters in a week! That is incredible! She loves it, and finds thatshe is understanding the gospel so much more than before. She ispraying about baptism, and is very close to accepting a date. Ourlesson consisted of us read 1 Nephi 8 with her. She was very excitedto commence on the path to get to the tree and partake of the fruit.She is pretty incredible!was our miracle day. and ! After district meetingwe rushed out and headed over to Art's home. We taught him and hisex-wife Lori. He too was right at 1 Nephi 8, so we read it with himand explained it more fully. "Art, what do you think the rod of ironrepresents?" "It is the word of God. Which leads to the tree, toChrist, so that I can partake of the love of God. Incredible. I amjust understanding everything you are teaching me. " And he is justglowing. "Art, will you prepare to be baptized by someone holding thepriesthood authority of God." "Yes, yes I will. I'm not opposed to it,if I need to be baptized again by the proper authority, I will do it.I guess that is what God needs me to do." And then Lori piped in. "Iwant to get baptized too!" Wow! So both accepted to be baptized!!! Wewere so excited!And later at night we met with Sheila, and I think both of us wereexpecting her to have not read from the Book of Mormon and still beskeptical about it. But to our surprise she read 7 chapters In twodays!!! And she loves it!! She knows it's true! And she accepted to bebaptized as well!!!! Incredible! Miracles upon miracles!And it doesn't end there. I can't even describe the spirit, the power,the love....this gospel is true. This week Art has just exploded inhis progression. And to me, it is sacred. He is just glowing. He cameto churchand didn't want to leave. "I have finally foundpeople who believe the same things I do. I have found the truth." Evenas I write this, tears are filling my eyes. He has searched for 47years to find the truth, and it is here.For those of you who are struggling in your testimony or who arewondering if God is there, I want to bear my testimony. As arepresentative of Christ, I know that God lives. Jesus is the Christ,the very Son of God. He lives and with our Father, wish only to bringyou happiness. This church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-daySaints, is the only church upon the earth that has the priesthoodauthority of God. This is our Salvation. This is our foundation. Asyou study and pray and seek, God will let you know by the power of theHoly Ghost that it is true. Because He loves you. God has never let usalone, has never abandoned us. He lives. So ask. Seek. Live. And thetruth will grow within you till you finally reach the tree and fall toyour knees and partake of that glorious white fruit.
