Like you can probably see by my subject, this week we had tons of miracles. The crazy thing though is that all the miracles linked together.
I am trying my best to follow the Spirit and go where the Lord wants me to go instead of my own desires. I have set the personal goal to offer a prayer when I don´t know what to do or where to go if our plans fall through. Wow, did it work.
One morning, we left to go visit some people and look for some new investigators. I was doing my best to talk to everyone I could in the street. On the way home to eat lunch, I saw an older women sitting down outside her house, and we went over to talk to her. Her name is Maria and she told us that just the past month her house had burned down and she had lost her child. We had arrived just in time. We taught her about how life has a purpose and God has a plan and desires for every single one of us. It made me feel so good to know that she needed those words in that moment. We set a cita to go back to visit her, and we started teaching about the gospel restored. DURING THE LESSON, her friend (Yisenia) came and sat down with us and we shared with her too! She told us that she was a single mom and that her child had serious physical and mental problems and that sometimes in life she didn´t know what do to or why it had happened to her. When we went to her house to share more, we found her with her mom, and her mom´s friend Beatriz and Luz. Beatriz told us that she had been to a church tour forever ago and that she wanted to know more, but the missionaries had never gone to her house. We are now teaching them too.
Just through following the spiritual impression to talk to ONE PERSON, we were lead to more and more people who wanted to hear the gospel. Imagine if I hadn´t listened and we had kept walking. It is important to obey the first time. The first time we feel like we need to do something, DO IT. I testify that God leads us in the right direction if we just follow the impressions he sends us.
I love you all so much. Stay safe and be kind! Elder Scott
