|On top in Pro District|
Today for P-day we went to a mini mountain in "Pro" (a district in Lima in the Los Olivos stake). It was awesome, the first time I've done something like this in a looooonng time :D
This week we had a really cool miracle. Yesterday we left a ward activity and we wanted to go visit a reference we'd received. It was in a part of the area we don't exactly go very often, but as we were walking by a house with a lot of people coming out. Right as we were passing by them 2 of the men said hi to us, one of them saying "Hi elders". I stopped in my tracks and we went and talked to them. Turned out to be a less active family, both parents are returned missionaries and the man's father lives with them and isn't a member. He is the probably one of the most hard-hearted of people because many missionaries have taught him before and he has never committed to do anything, but during the lesson he committed to read the Book of Mormon and go to church with the family this Sunday. That was an awesome miracle that helped me recognize the need to really talk to everyone. In this case, I think the Lord provided a tender mercy to allow us to help a family return to the church as well.
I know that if we do all that we can to follow the Spirit's promptings the first time we'll receive blessings and be sure that we are doing our part as member-missionaries. I love you all!!!
