This past week I have seen so many miracles in such a small amount of time, I can hardly believe it., we were so amazed to see the members in our ward actually fill up our agenda with dates and visits! It's hard sometimes to get the people in our ward to help out during the week because the majority of them work in Texas and have very little time to spare, but that all changed this week. We were settin´appointments left and right, it was so awesome! This week we had a change in bishopric, and the ward was very excited to start working again because they haven't had a bishop for the past 3 months.
On Monday we had a family home evening with our new Bishop, Bishop Coral. Every time we visit a member family who has kids, we teach them the missionary lessons, as if they were new investigators. This is especially fun when the kids have been members all of their life, and they haven't ever heard a real missionary lesson. At the end of the lesson, we got a few references from the bishop's wife and we were on our way to another home evening. We had the next home evening with our stake president, and he invited his wife's mom who isn't a member of the church. It's great to have family home evenings with the ward members, but it's even better when they invite friends and investigators!
Tuesday we had another trip down to Janos, Chihuahua. This time, it was all smooth sailing. When we got back from Janos, we met with a brother in our ward, Hermano Yañez, and he helped us visit 3 less active families. Something I have learned from working with less active families is to treat them just as you would an active family. Invite them to activities and have them help out. This helps them really feel like their needed again, and they will be happy to help (most of the time anyway).
This last week I truly felt the love of my Saviour, and I saw His hand as I met and taught my investigators and I know I am in His debt. As King Benjamin taught to his people in Mosiah, we are always indebted to Him. "..he doth require that ye should do as he hath commanded you; for which if ye do, he doth immediately bless you; and therefore he hath paid you. And ye are still indebted unto him, and are, and will be, forever and ever"
Sister King made us dinner the other night.
