August 11, 2014 A Turn for the better...

Things are going great right now. We have had quite the turn around from the last few weeks that I have been here. We had been struggling to know where we should go, and what we should do. Now we are having a hard time managing all the appointments we have set. It is a great problem to have.
This week we were able to pick up 3 new investigators! We picked up a couple named Sita and Craig. They were a referral from the Spanish Sister in the area. The have been reading the Book of Mormon for the last 6 years and believe it to be the word of God. They ask a lot of questions and it was hard to stay focused on our first lesson we had, last monday. In fact the first time we meet with them we really were not able to teach an entire lesson. Even though they have lots of questions, it shows that they have been prepared and are searching for the truth. We met with them again on Thursday and taught them the Restoration with President Kendrick. We invited them to be baptized but they unsure about it. We have another appointment with them tomorrow and hope to set a date then.
Also on Thursday we contacted a young Lady named Dominique. We asked her if we could stop by and share a short message about Jesus Christ. She said yes and told us to come back to her house the next day. We stop by at the time she had told us and taught the Restoration. We testified about the power the Atonement has to cleanse us all of the mistakes we make, then invited her to be baptized. She accepted and set a baptismal date for August 30. It was incredible! To find and teach someone so fast. The only downside to it is that we will have to hand her off to the YSA Sisters. It doesn't matter though. We are all on the same team. We are all on the Lords side.
Again things are going good, and can't wait to see the amazing miracles that will happen this week! I Love being a missionary!
