We Can Be His Hands

March 21, 2016

This was one of the craziest weeks of all the mission.

One of the missionaries I trained was having problems. and she and her companion were at the mission home to try to solucion out some things. and President was praying and praying trying to think what should be done. And it just so happened that my district had interviews with president that day, so we got there and he told me the situation and he said that he couldn`t figure it out, but then it came to him. He felt that God put us all there together for a reason, so that I could talk to them. I thought O_O uh, ok. haha. But it went really well.and when my hijita said the closing prayer she cried and asked God to help her change.

Sunday we went by for the investigators and NO ONE.. y dije a mi compaƱera, no vamos a la iglesia hasta que tenemos un investigador! and I started to invite some people in the street haha. but we made our way to the church and still didn`t have an investigator and we were walking with a member at this point and he went in but we told him that we weren`t going in until we had an investigator. he said uhh good luck. It was about 8:50, We were outside about 5 minutes when a youth came out and went to the bus stop. I had seen him a couple of times at church but didn`t know him, so we asked him where he was going. He said "home". He explained to us that he woke up early to come to church but his friend wasn`t there and he was tired and was going to go sleep. We asked him why he goes to church and he said to feel good. Normally in the mission I pray that the buses will come faster, but this time it was the opposite. I was praying that we would have enough time to help him decide to stay. Finally thanks to the Spirit he decided to go back in, and I asked him How long he has been a member, he said that he wasn`t a member. WOW OUR INVESTIGATOR!!! so in the end we entered the church with an investigator.

  I felt so strongly God`s love for His children this week. if we hadn`t been waiting outside we would have never crossed paths with this jovencito (15). God loved so much that sister missionary, so He put us together so that she could recieve the help that she needed. 

Another kid named Jonathan, we were in his house teaching him for the first time and he told us that last night he prayed to God for guidance, and the next day we arrived. God loves Jonathan too, He gives His children the help that they need. It is so special to take part in this work. 

A inactive hermano came to church too. and there he told us "Thank you so much hermanas. I wanted to come back. but I needed a kick." its so rewarding.

God loves His children, and we can be His hands!
