Wow, I seriously cannot believe it is p-day already. Time is flying so fast!
During the week we have been praying a lot about our investigators. Some of them just aren't making a lot of progress so we left the ball in their court and have been using our time elsewhere for now. We were a little nervous at first because we didn't want to drop our main investigators. However, Elder Dube and President Rasmussen have talked a lot about using the Lord's time wisely and if someone isn't progressing consider using the Lord's time elsewhere. So that is what we did. We had the faith that the Lord would place other people in our path and that is exactly what he did this week. We were knocking on doors and we found a new investigator named Khoa from Vietnam. He has some really sincere questions and listens to what we have to say. There is a little bit of a language barrier but we pray he will be able to understand.
I went on exchanges in White River this week with Sister Nebeker. She is so sweet and White River is having a lot of success. During the exchange we had a lesson with one of their investigators also from Vietnam. He has a stronger accent than Khoa so after that lesson I feel like Khoa's language barrier isn't as bad as I thought. We also got a referral from some other missionaries. So we called the referral - a man named Dan. During the call he told us that he wants to come to church and that he needs Jesus in his life. We asked what his religious background is and he said he was Buddhist. We taught a brief Restoration lesson over the phone and he was so excited to hear that the Gospel has been restored. He said he would be at church and that he wants to learn more. Wow! What a miracle - phone calls like that don't happen often.
This week I have learned more about the importance of goal setting and planning. I had no idea how much planning went into missionary work before my mission, but it is great! It is amazing to see that when you plan the way Preach My Gospel teaches how much the Lord places people in our path. Miracles are happening!
Hope you have a great week. I love you all!
P.S. Cafe Rio tastes just as good in Washington!
