We're teaching two new people this week. One is G., she is a preachers daughter and is super open. We had a great discussion about the Book of Mormon! She told her husband as we were leaving "Honey, they told me all about the Book of Mormon and gave us a copy! I'll tell you about it later, and read some to you!" So we are super hopeful for them! Pray that they have good enough health to come to church in the future.
We also met a woman named J. who was a referral from a Sister down in high point stake. She let us in when we knocked, and we got to answer questions about the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith. After we overcame some of her initial concerns and questions, she was super super friendly and talked to us for an hour straight. :) We are going back this Thursday, so pray that she will feel the Spirit as she reads the Book of Mormon.
On Sunday our Sunday school class was on "God is not a respecter of persons." I loved the lesson, and even more so because of how well it summed up our week. A couple of our investigators from last week told us to give them some time, so we were trying to find a couple more people to teach. We were blessed to meet 2 different ladies, each in their 70's, that are super nice and interested in learning! The class reminded me of these great women who are looking for truth.. It showed me that God can love and prepare everyone for the gospel, regardless of their age. We talk to everyone, because in truth, anyone could be ready to receive what we have to share. We are excited for this next week to continue to meet with them, and to look for even more people who want to learn more!
Sunday at dinner, a 4 year old hugged me, professed her love for me, and her desire to marry me. Looks like little L.W. has some competition ;) I love this ward :)
Anyways, sure love you! Duces till next week!
