Blessings and Blisters
By the title you know that it has been a great week here in Poughkeepsie! I don't have much time so I will just briefly tell a story that has happened over the past 2 weeks but I will put it into one paragraph.
We had been meeting with an investigator named Celin and she was progressing really well towards her baptism date. She then unfortunately and randomly told us that she “didn't want to do this anymore… " We told her that we care for her and her family and wanted to come by and meet with and them one more time, she said that was fine. Well we went by and met her husband and we had a great lesson about how this gospel blesses families and how they are children of a loving Heavenly Father. The spirit was strong and we invited them to church. They said no because they had to many projects to do around the house. After asking, "What can we do to help?" a few times they finally agreed to allowing us to come over! We went over and helped for a couple of hours before church and then left with them saying that they would see us at church. Well church started and they weren't there.. She then texted us and said "We are leaving now but we will be late." We said "perfect, still come!" Then 30 minutes later while I was translating a talk at the pulpit, they all walked in! It distracted me and I didn't hear what the person said but I was still expected to translate the line. I opened my mouth and said what I think I might of heard and the spirit really helped me. It was a great meeting and the church members were all over them with love and greetings. Bonus, they stayed for classes! Miracles with this family!
Lots of other things are going really well, but I thought I would share that particular story because a lot of work and love went into it, and it just really makes me happy to see them progressing so as a family!
I would tell a funny story that happened last week, but this is getting long and time is getting short, so next week I’ll tell you… maybe! J
Love you all! Enjoy Lehi Round Up week.
