Wow this last week was full of pure miracles here in the mission. I want to share one of them. This last week I was sick on Tuesday so we stayed in the house. Then on Wednesday I was still sick but we decided we needed to go out and work anyways. So we were out in the street and we hadn't really planned out where we were going or anything. So we were out walking in the street and it was gettting close to the end of the day and we felt that we should just hurry and quickly visit the house of a member.
Now, before we passed by this member, two evangelists had stopped by her house to give her dad who is sick and about to die, a blessing. But they were women so they definitely wouldn't have whatsoever authority they needed to do so. But the sister went upstairs and told her dad (who is not a member) that the two women down stairs were going to give him a blessing to help him with his sickness. But he said "No, becuase there are two pastors down stairs who are going to give me a blessing." She looked at him funny and said "What two pastors?" Just then the doorbell rang.
So now, here we are on the outside of the the house, we ring the doorbell and the sister answers and says, "ELDERS? Come in, sit down, I will be right back." So we sit down and decide to share a message with the family and everything. Then the sister comes back into the room and says "Elders, I need to tell you something." Then she told us everything that had just happened before we rang the doorbell. And that we were the two pastors her father was talking about and asked us to give her father a blessing.
WOW! Blew my mind away!!! I just sat there that night and thought "How glad am I that we decided to go out and work anyways. Because, as sick as I was there was somebody else who really needed our help!" It was so, so cool!
Anyways, sorry its a short email and all. But the work is going wonderful, wonderful here! The people are progressing and we are working hard to help them make covenants with The Lord! What a blessing it is to be a part of this great work!
