Family,This week has been the biggest pouring of blessings and miracles I have ever seen. Every day with Sister Goddard is so diligent! She pushes me so hard, its great. I feel like she is training me! We knock doors every day now, even at night sometimes, just so we can talk to more people. You have to here in Alamo since it is all residential and really quiet. This has led to many many potentials and new investigators!! We also tracked almost every former investigator we could, no matter what, even if the address was wrong. This led to 10 NEW INVESTIGATORS IN ONE WEEK. We reset a baptismal date and even found families. We also tried less actives that no one seems to know about, all in one night the Lord allowed us to see them and get many return appointments.
We went back to visit an old referral from a member when Sister Olsen and I were together. She originally wanted to give us back our BOM. But we said we just wanted to come visit because she had been so nice to feed us and our member. She is a sweet Norwegian lady that recently lost her husband. We just had a very normal conversation. Then she was really intrigued by my companion's re-activation story, we explained a little about word of wisdom (one of her questions), and our simple testimonies of the Book of Mormon. We just casually said we needed to go, and on her own all the sudden she said "well maybe I will hold on to this a little longer and read some more." Wow! She said we could come back. Another heart softened!
On top of this, we are getting swamped at church! We have almost 6-7 families setting up dinners with nonmember and less active friends and we got to speak to the young men about serving missions (which many are struggling with that decision) and we have a request to come help with seminary one morning and also take the Laurel aged young women out from a different ward that has elders. Last week we helped with Primary and Relief Society. Things are really starting to catch fire here and it is so exciting! We are working really hard to show the ward we are serious and trying to find on our own, and many are so surprised to hear about the miracles happening here.
