So this week was seriously miracle packed. We decided to drop one of our 'gators, sadly, but we know it's for the best. Since that decision, SO much good happened. We found new 'gators who are super awesome and we're so excited about them! And we've actually been getting quite a few referrals which is rare! yay members! This ward is so great, I love them.
We completely ran out of miles for our car so we had a fun time tracting/visiting former investigators in the pouring rain. I love the rain, so all was well. But, we called up an AMAZING recent convert and she came with us to visit some Less Active members. What a success! One of them we stopped by (husband is a member, wife is not) and they pulled up as we knocked on their door. She stayed in the car (not so happy to see us) and he came out to meet us. Quickly invited him to the pioneer Day activityand left. To be continued...
Then we got to finally see another AWESOME part member couple :) the less active husband basically taught his wife the whole restoration with us there and his testimony is so strong. I have high hopes about them!
Last thing, last night we called up our Spanish Returning Members, the Barretos, to ask if they could come with us to a lesson before going to their house. Lesson fell through so we popped by a former investigator, Alberone. He speaks mainly Portugese but Spanish pretty well and a bit of English. We got to meet with him and he said he needs God in his life. He said that when we knocked he didn't hear it because the TV was on, but something told him he needed to check the front door. He looked out the window and saw "four angels". He had been praying before and then we showed up. We testified of God's love for him and that we were sent to him. This is just a testimony to me that because we're working hard and striving to follow the Spirit, Heavenly Father really will work through us.
Funny quote from that night:
"Yo dego, hambre! nooo hombre!" (I said hungry, not man!) Spanish gone wrong
Things are great! God is good and Florida is amazing. I love this place and these people. Thank you everyone for the support and emails and prayers and love. It means the world to me. Never forget how much God loves each of you. <3
