El espirtu nos guia
We had an amazing week her in conroe. the work is really progressing and i love it. i don't want to spend too much time writing you today because the Barrera family is taking to us to Texas Road House and i haven't been there for 11 months! im so stoked.
so this past week i had my first MLC meeting. (missionary leadership conference) It is were the Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders are trained by President and his assistants and then we take what we learn and have to train the rest of the missionaries in the zones. it is very very long and spiritually over whelming ha. then i had the opportunity to teach 20 other missionaries what i learned, in spanish. ha so i was super stressed this week. but it was very edifying!
so this week were were looking for some less actives and referrals in this little town called Cut n' Shoot. basically it is like a KKK compound. very scary. in this town, if the trees on somebodys property are painted purple, it means you cant go past them, and if you do they have every right to shoot you. yepp. i have pictures attached.
the miracle this week was for sure yesterday. we had three set citas(appointments) in the morning before church with some investigators. we got a member to come out with us for all of them. we went to the first cita and she said she was busy and didn't let us in. so we went to our back up and they weren't home, then we went to our next set cita and they were there but didn't answer the door. then we went to our next back up and they also didnt let us in. and this happened to like 6 houses. i was discouraged and didn't know what was going on. we had a member with us and weren't having any success. we decided to go to one more potential. somebody that my comp found while i was on exchanges. we went to their apartment complexes and turns out they gave us a phony address because the # of apartment didn't exist. i was done ha. but the member we were with says, i feel like i have a friend that lives in these apartments but I'm not sure. this friend was really close with her, she actually lived with her for a year and had listened to missionaries before. but then she moved out into her own place and never gave the member the address. when we were driving out of the complex she saw her friends car parked in front of one of the buildings in the complex. i had the feeling that we could knock on all the doors in that building to find her but i didn't say anything. my companion and the member also had the same feeling but nobody said anything. when we were literally driving out of the complex, the member looked back at the buildings and she saw her friend sitting on her balcony. we ended up going back and teaching her and her boyfriend she lives with. my companion that morning had found a video by holland about the sacrament that we shared. turns out that the member we were with had watched that same video in the morning when she woke up. so much spirittttt. that hermana bore her testimony in sacrament meeting about how she knew why none of the the other citas worked out because the Lord knew where we needed to be. super cute.
Let the holy spirit guide!
