The Question of the Day....
May 31, 2017
Hey hey hey,
Currently sitting in Manhattan in Ben Pelo's apartment. We just ate some wings for lunch. ''Tis a good day.
We went to the top of the Empire State Building today and it was rad! I really love NYC. Will be a sad day when I have to leave this place.):
Cool story time:we started talking to this woman on the street and she was nice but not so interested. We asked "Who do you know that has recently lost a loved one?" She said that she had and that it had been really hard for her daughter and husband to find peace since the passing of her grandfather. We gave her a Book of Mormon and marked Alma 40 and testified from our hearts. She opened it up and literally read the whole chapter right then and there on the street. We sat in silence for about 5 minutes and just let her read. After she said she felt peace while reading it and she wanted to continue. It was amazing and we will be teaching her and her family next week.
What is amazing is that on the way down to Manhattan this same thing happened! We prayed before leaving the apartment to have someone in our path that would have an open heart for the gospel and then we started talking to this guy on the train and he was awesome! We asked him "do you ever wonder what the purpose of your life is?" And he said "yes! Every day!" So we introduced the Book of Mormon and showed him Alma 42 to read later. He grabbed the book and said "I am going to read it right now!" And he started reading. He read the whole thing and after just said "wow this verse really spoke to me.. and I love what it says here.." and it was just so cool to be able to testify about the purpose of life and see him light up.
Also this week I got hit on by 50ish year old women like 3 different times. So that's fun. Jaja
I love you all! Can't believe that tomorrow is the first day of June...
Joshua got baptized in my last area and now he lives in my new area!! Woot Woot!
