Weekly Update - 8/25/2014

Hey Everyone, 

This last week has been pretty amazing with finding opportunities. One of my goals this week was to open my mouth more. So we did and we were able to give really open of the doors to the gospel for a lot of different people. For example we were at the senior center here in Eagar and I struck up a conversation with an older gentleman. We started talking about religion and somehow we started talking about how in the Marriott hotels all have a Book of Mormon in them. I used this as an opportunity to offer him one and explain a little bit more about what the Book of Mormon was. We got to talking about the Priesthood and a little bit more about what he believes in. The spirit was definitely a driving force in helping me to know what to say and how to share our beliefs in a loving manner. This experience has definitely strengthened my testimony of following the spirit and acting on promptings. He is not from Eagar, but hopefully a seed was planted. 

Another amazing experience happened on Sunday when a member introduced me to a family not of our faith that he brought to hear him speak. I got to talk to this new family a little bit more. I felt impressed to ask if he has ever been to an LDS service before. He went on for a couple minutes on how he loves LDS services and how he has met with missionaries before. He mentioned about how the missionaries bring such a light and happiness to him when met with him. He mentioned how he had a Book of Mormon and use to read, but had lost his. So I offered him another one. He gladly accepted. We invited him back to church again next week and he said he would definitely think about it.

Things are definately picking up again here. 

Could yall pray for a couple investigators of ours.
