J'espère que vous avez passé une bonne semaine:) I feel like i say this every week but I can't believe how fast time goes, it's already the last week week of the transfer when it feels like it started maybe a week ago! We as a mission have a goal of finding 1620 new amis before Elder and Sister Johnson (area seventies) come and tour our mission in Nov. So we have been trying to work as hard as we can, and talk to everyone possible!
We have seen some really cool miracles this week. So two weeks ago we got a text from an ancien ami (old investigator) we told us that he had met with the missionaries a little before and has been reading a lot in the scriptures and wanted to see us again. We had a rdv with him and he is literally so cool, his name is Kevin and he was taught by the missionnaires before through email and Mormon.org. He has already read through the Livre de Mormon and a lot of D&C and Jesus the Christ! He was going to study to become a catholic priest but then started researching our church more. So now at this point he knows a lot about our church and he has read and prayed a lot trying to find an answer if our church is true. He said that if he receives an answer this church is true he would of course join our church. The rdv was really great and the spirit was really strong. We testified to Kevin about how sometimes to receive our answers we have to act, and trust in Heavenly Father. We invited Kevin to act and live like a Mormon would live and keep praying to receive a réponse. Well that's exactly what he did he came to church on Sunday and loved it (our members friended him so well) and he is happy and wants to see us again soon!
Speaking of faith, we were talking about it this week in district meeting and there was a thought I really liked, it went with this scripture in Ether 12:
11 Wherefore, by faith was the law of Moses given. But in the gift of his Son hath God prepared a more excellent way; and it is by faith that it hath been fulfilled.
12 For if there be no faith among the children of men God can do no miracle among them; wherefore, he showed not himself until after their faith.
I love in the first verse where it says God has prepared a more excellent way, because faith is often trusting in Heavenly Father and trusting his way is better than ours. Faith is often having to ACT or keep walking even when life gets difficult. Faith is acting and working as if God's promises have come to pass, even if they haven't yet, but you continue forward anyway because you have hope that they will.
That's what's been happening for me these past few weeks, our work totally slowed down but we tried to work our hardest anyway and trust that Heavenly Father had better things planned and I am now seeing those miracles come after we showed our faith.
Another miracle on Sunday, this young girl named Marie came to church all by her self and as we started talking with her she told us that she had been living in Las Vegas for the past year and she had been staying with a host family who is Mormon. She went to church with them every week and loved it, but she only met the missionaries once. Well she loved church and wants to learn more, and she is coming with us to a members house tonight for FHE! She is so sweet and I am so excited and happy for her.
I really do know and believe with my whole heart that God, our Heavenly Father, is a God of miracles and if we put our faith in him all of his promises will be fulfilled.
I love you all so much, have a wonderful wonderful week!
Je vous aime
