The Right Place at the Right Time!!!!!



Read D&C 18:15-16.  I would definitely say you had a missionary opportunity right in front of you!  That's awesome!  There are quite a few people that we talk to that are like that and most of the time; they're set on what happened and in their ways.  The only thing I would say is to share your testimony.  No one can tell you that's not true because it's yours and that's a great way for the Spirit to come into the conversation!  Invite her family over just for a casual dinner or BBQ or something, where they can come into a Christ centered home and feel the Spirit there and hopefully, feel the difference and enjoy your company and hospitality at the house!  Or...invite her to the next ward activity or let her know about the youth programs or primary for her kids.  Ask the missionaries what you can do.  They have been called to that area and know how to work with the people.  Those are just my suggestions, but don't let it go by because how often do people get to have missionary opportunities, especially in Idaho?  Especially in Sugar City and Rexburg?  That is super cool, though!  If you invite them over to the house, Dad could help.  He's been on a mission and he probably has experiences that can relate with them!

Well, this week has been better.  We did quite a bit of service again, which is always fun, but we're still looking for people to teach.  Saturday night we went to Wal-Mart and contacted people in the parking lot.  Right as we got out of the car, this guy yells across the parking lot and says, "Are you guys elders?!"  We told him we were and he told us to come over and he wanted to talk to us.  So, we went over and introduced ourselves to him and he said he was a member and was baptized when he was little, but hasn't been to the LDS church for a long time and just moved into a new place.  He said he wants us to come over and basically give his home a blessing and so we asked a little about him and he has 3 kids and his wife isn't a member!  We'll probably go over this week and get to know them and hopefully, see if we can teach the family!  We'll see how it goes!  The right place at the right time!!!  Wahoo!!!  This week, we helped a member pick up a couch from a trailer park across the street and he tried to find the trailer by memory and so we got out to the house that we were getting the couch from and there was a guy that got out of the car and he looked a little worried with 5 guys walking up to him.  We told him we were there to pick up the couch, but it ended up not being the house.  We started talking to the guy and he was a convert about 3 or 4 years ago and is less active and we just ran into him.  It was pretty cool!!!!  That was the cool stuff from this week!  We are just trying to build the area and the teaching pool!  Hopefully, we'll see some more miracles!  Hopefully, all goes well for you guys!  Keep up the good work!

Love Ya!
