Letter date 03/02/2015
So this week has been an amazing week in the Vineyard Ward. Sister Wheelwright and I have added 3 new promising investigators!!!! :)
The first one was a former that we found in the area book that the Elders have taught her in the past. We went over there on Thursday and we taught her the Restoration and she said that she would pray and come to find out for herself if Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and if the Book of Mormon is true!!! Also she said that if she comes to know this gospel is true than she will be baptized in April!!! :) It is super exciting and we can't wait!
The second one we found while out riding our bikes one day. Sister Wheelwright wanted to stop and talk to her so we did. The first thing that She told us is that she has already been saved. We started asking her about her religion and what she believes and how she was already saved and it turns out that she is very active in her first Baptist church. She is super nice and so we continued to talk to her. We talked about Joseph Smith and we asked her if she wanted to know for herself it all of what we were saying is true and she said yes!!!! So we gave her a book of Mormon and a Plan of Salvation Pamphlet and she said that she would read them and to come back next Friday! So we are excited to be meeting with her this week!
The last one is also a former from the Elders and it turns out that he was going to get baptized last year but he didn't because his wife wouldn't leave her church. He knows the church is true and he knows that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. His wife now is looking for a church now and he said that she would love talking to Sisters because the Elders made her uncomfortable. Ya!!!!!! :) This is why they put Sisters in this area :)
So that is the exciting news for this week and I hope you all have a great week. I know that is gospel is true and that the Lord has a timing and a purpose for everything in our lives. We are where we are for reasons that may only be known to him. So trust his guidance and just let him lead you to where he wants you to go! I love you all and please keep all our new investigators in your prayers!!!!
