Finding the Flock

Dear Family and Friends,

___________________________. Yes everyone, speechless! That is what I have to describe how this week has been! We have seen so many miracles, it is amazing! This week we found 8 new people to teach and of those people there are 3 families. I'm so grateful to have been led by the spirit to find these people. Some of them are really neat experiences that I'll share a couple with you.

The weather has been pretty nice lately and we decided to do some walking. So we're walking down the street knocking on doors when a car pulls up next to us and rolls down the window. It was a young woman named Michelle. She said she saw us walking and told herself if they are still walking when I turn around I'm going to stop and ask if they need a ride. We told her who we were and asked if she had a belief in Christ. (Mind you she is pulled over on the side of the road with the hazard lights on) She told us how she had gone through a dark time but she was able to find God through it. We invited her to meet with us and we got her contact info and set a time to meet. Before we parted ways she asked if we needed a ride again and said,"Here take a Power Aid at least, its hot and you need to stay hydrated. I love helping people."  I'm so grateful Michelle followed the prompting from the spirit to stop and talk with us. I know sometimes Heavenly Father brings them to us instead of us to them.

Another neat experience we had was when we were tracting. So we do a lot of knocking on doors and we were in a trailer park walking around trying to meet people. Well, we came to a corner and I looked at this trailer on the corner and felt drawn to it. We knocked and were invited right in! That was the first time I've ever been invited right in to someone's home. We met Kandea and a couple of her children. We are now teaching her and her husband Daniel.

We also were able to receive a referral from Kandea to her neighbor and we went over to try them and they were super open. Their names are Beneto and Cyara. He is originally from Brazil and was a professional soccer player. They are excited to come to church and to teach their children about God.

I know I'm in the right place at the right time. I am meeting so many people whether it be investigators, members, companions, or other missionaries that I know I needed to know and I'm so grateful for the beautiful Plan of Happiness we have and knowing that everyone who comes into our lives is there for a specific reason. How fun it must be for Heavenly Father to be the author of all our stories. I love him and he has been truly kind to me.

I want you all to know how ridiculously happy I am. I've never been happier in my entire life and I know I can have this happiness forever because it flows from eternal and infinite beings, my Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ.
