Fast Sunday

Once again this week was the bees knees, the cats pajamas. . . . We had a week of miracles. Ever since Elder H and I have started the :miracle wall" we have been able to see miracles happen ever day. It pumps us up for the next day and helps us realize that everyday something amazing happened.

So Dan H, the guy who was baptized last week, came to a lesson this week with us. He is so golden. He is just able to follow the Spirit and is able to connect with people. And it's way cool because he is a new convert. The man who we taught that day dropped us but it was just way good for Dan because the experience was able to build his testimony even more. We are going to be using him like once or twice a week.

Also this week we taught a man named Adam. He is way good. He has been wondering about his life and where he is going. So we shared the plan of salvation. He agreed with everything. It was amazing.

Also Kim and Dany are doing great. We could only teach them for like 20 minutes this week and we did the lesson on the restoration. It was crazy awesome how the Lord blesses us so we can teach what we need to teach. We all felt the Spirit when Elder H shared the first vision and Kim said that it all feels right. How awesome is that.

We are just working really hard and trying to find new investigators so we can continue to teach people. Which leads me to the best fast Sunday ever. So we get to church and none of our investigators show up, which is a big bummer because we had like 5 people who said they would be able to come. Then after sacrament meeting one of the bishopric pulls us in the hall way and says that there is a lady and her son in the hall who know who we are. We were like "what?" We had not been teaching a lady and a son. We walk over to where they are at and turns out that it is a boy we had been trying to get to do boy scouts. We find out that the mom had talked to the missionaries in Nephi Utah and went to church out there but then moved. So when she found out that her son was talking to us she wanted to come back. How crazy sick is that. A miracle that walked off the street. So we have started teaching them and are going back on Tuesday. But the best part of yesterday was when we went to this family . . they have a friend named Lily who had gone to church dances, youth conference, church, trek and then stopped coming for awhile. When I found out about Lily a couple weeks ago it hit me personally. So we were able to have Lily come to this specific family's for dinner. and afterwards I was able to share some personal stories with them and about my friends, and to make a long story short we are able to now teach Lily, She is even going to BYU next year. How awesome is that. It's going to be a way good experience because I can see how the Lord has prepared me to help with Lily.

Man, I love this missionary stuff haha. It's a blast and every day is a new adventure and I never know what is going to happen but I love it. The people here are amazing, The ward is amazing. Mission life is amazing.
Love Elder Woestman
