Not too much happened this week. Hahahaha! It was just kind of like a flat line.
We had some cool stuff happen though! We had 2 investigators in church!!! WOOO!!! Orobia and Ramòn. They are so cool. Orobia is kind of older and is the sweetest thing ever! I love her. We called her yesterday morning and said we would walk with her and then we got to her house and she wasn't home. So we called her and she was all, oh I am in the church. What? Orobia. Hahaha we said we would walk with you! Oh goodness. It was crazy. Then Ramòn is about 50.... I think. On Friday he said he would come but didn't want to wear a tie because he doesn't like them. But, he showed up to church super early and wore a tie! And a full on suit! It was so sweet. They both instantly made friends in the branch and loved church. It was so cool.
We have been struggling a bit in our branch here. We have a LOT of inactives. A lot. We only have about 18 or 20 people each week in church. Then yesteday, we had 29! 29 PEOPLE! That is so cool. For about 12 weeks now, in all of my prayers, I have prayed for the members who are inactive to start coming to church again. For 12 weeks, this has been a huge worry for me. Then yesterday, my prayer was answered. It just goes to show that we need to be patient when we pray and ask for things. Because the Lord has perfect timing and we don't. It was so cool to see these members in the branch. I loved meeting them and also just seeing all the chairs filled. I know it is not about numbers in the branch, but about these members keeping their covenants and being happy. It was nice to see that prayers really are anwered. It was a testimony to me that if we pray with real intent and have patience, our prayers will be answered
I testify that Heavenly Father really does hear our prayers and will answer them. No matter who we are. He will answer and he listens. He WANTS to answer our prayers. We just have to do our part, and that is to act. Pray and act, then He will do his part.
I hope you all have a great week! Remember, pray is the way! There is no other way :)
