|Hello Elder Bundy!|
A huge miracle happened this week which resulted in 2 of our new people to teach.
After a member meal with the Mederis Family (member in our church) , we said a closing prayer. During the prayer i felt prompted to tell the Mederis family about how God answered my prayers whenever i would ask him to place someone in my path. So i told them how God always puts people that i can share the gospel with when ever i pray for that exact thing. You will never guess what happened next....
As we were walking back to our car from their home, there was a couple standing right beside our car and one of them told us that we were dressed real nice and that started our conversation. We talked for 10 minutes and we set a return appointment for the upcoming sunday to do dinner and a lesson with her and her 19 year old Son Jonathon. This Lady, Lisa P***** is not a member of our church and she invited us over for a dinner! NO ONE DOES THAT! Anyways, Sunday came around and we went to the dinner and she made a wonderful home-cooked meal and than told us that she is still searching for purpose in life ever since she had a near death experience. she attends the Manchester Christian Church every week but she still feels like she wants to know her Personal purpose in this life. We taught her about the restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and she committed to reading and praying about the book of mormon to know if what we told her is true. Jonathon also agreed to finding out and is willing to put forth the effort to find out.
This week we also did service for a man who is practicing Bhuddist but doesnt believe in all of its teachings. He is a believer of Jesus's teachings but doesnt believe that He rose from the dead because there is no proof that he did such a thing. But we got to talk to this man about human personality traits and characteristics that make us the way we are. Even though this man is not a true believer of Jesus, he still emulates Jesus and His teachings better than i do at times! He is awesome!
We have been getting fed VERY WELL this past week. We have been very blessed to have dinner at someones house every night this past week and every night this upcoming week as well.
This week on Wednesday, our mission will be getting the second phase of our ipads which is planning on them and updating our area books on them.
I am so happy to be on my mission right now. Every night i lay in my bed, grateful for every hard moment ive had and every bit of frustration that ive had, because it has opened my eyes to my potential as a human being and as a child of God.
