September 8 – Wahoo

8 Sep

This week was all about seeing the miracles of Heavenly Father- of connecting with His children and helping bring them closer to Him. Haha I guess every week is that but regardless, it was pretty cool.

One returning Sister we visit (and is preparing to recieve her patriarchal blessing) also has a less active son. The son only ever comes out but to say hello and then goes back in his room. But it was really neat because this time we got to know him a bit more and then he stayed out to play a game (first with get to know you questions and then with spiritual questions). It was really neat to see that change and have him participate with us and I think he had a good time 🙂

Also, something really cool. This past week we were at a members home for a little birthday party thing. It was all good and ordinary and then we had to leave to go make it to one of our appointments. The Mom and the daughter decided to take us. I was in the back seat with the daugther. It’s actually really neat, she doesn’t know that much spanish either, mostly french and is working on her english. She prefers to talk in English. So I took it as an opportunity to get to know her. It was amazing. We started talking. About normal things at first, school, things she likes, etc. And then she just opened up. We talked about where she feels she is spiritually and what she wants in the gospel. She told me her struggles and how its hard for her. She needs us, she needs good strong influences and testimonies. She told me of the one time she really felt the spirit in her life (girls camp- how neat is that) and how that’s what she wants to feel more than anything. So we made some plans. She set her alarm for 10:30 every night. When that goes off, she is going to go say her prayers. If she was at her friend’s house she could go use the washroom and say a prayer- she just needed to do it 🙂 She is also going to start reading the scriptures too. And we are going to try and do some of that together. It was really neat. That was Friday. Then Saturday came along. We had a pretty fun day with teaching English class, finding new people and then I just got super sick haha. It was near the end of the day and the thing was that we were locked out of our house so we thought of the family and they came to the rescue! We went to their house and guys, it was awesome. She just stayed there with me and we talked more. Such a great opportunity and she is super cool. She told me that the night before the alarm went off, she didn’t do it at first and said she would do it later. She got ready for bed and climbed in. She was about to sleep when she remembered that she didn’t pray. So she got out and then prayed. Then in the morning she remembered again and prayed in the morning! So cool!!! She said it felt really good. She is a really neat and beautiful young woman. I’m so happy and exciting to keep encouraging her and help build her up 🙂 It’s amazing how Heavenly Father works and puts us in the path of people that we need to touch and help them on the path to come back to our Heavenly Father. I love that.
