Haha ok, I found another computer with a longer time limit. So I still have to fly, but I'll try and give a little bit more detail. So this week we also went on exchange and blitzed an area and saw this incredible miracle! We knocked on the door of a less-active family and they answered the door and invited us in and the first thing that the lady says to us was that she had a friend that she wanted us to teach! Apparently the Sunday beforehand she'd spoken to her about some of the things that have been going on in her life and she ended up watching the restoration DVD with her as well! So that day she set up an apppintment for that night and the Elders were able to go and teach her! It was awesome especially since that area has literally had 0 investigators for over 3 weeks! It was a pretty awesome miracle! The Lord continues to show forth His hand in the work! Man, it's once again been so humbling to be out back in the field. You realize so much how you literally know how to do nothing. They talk about building an area, etc., but in the end after all you do it really is God that does the work. We've been working effectively, organizedly, etc. and yet not too much seems to be happening. But we continue to look for ways to improve and just keep expecting those miracles that we know are bound to come, haha but it's definitely been hard!
Elder Cook also left us with an Apostolic blessing that our mission would bless the lives of everyone that we care about, our families and friends now and in the future. So that's another brief rundown.
