This week these same investigators came to our church and we gave them a tour. We were SO EXCITED...and had SUCH HIGH EXPECTATIONS! But it ended up being a pretty stressful situation...we planned to have one member at the church so that we could introduce them to each other and build friendships. But it turned out that there were more people at the church...including a brother who tends to scare investigators. :( He talked to them for twenty minutes about how they need to get baptized and start coming to church and marry LDS people and he just went ON AND ON! It was sooooo stressful and awkward for us. We know he had good intentions, but we are afraid that his pep talk did a lot more damage than good. So that was too bad. They left the church feeling pretty awkward. My companion and I were quite devastated, but we prayed and then decided we better just have a good attitude and keep going forward like nothing was awkward, because we were doing our best! Anyway, we met them again last night, and it was okay, so I hope that they won't be scared off!
I have been seeing so many miracles lately that I just can't believe it!! Last night I got a text from the office elders in Daejeon. This is what the text said:
안녕하세요 베켓자매님 박진경자매님 좋은밤입니다~ 오늘 저랑 멀리장로가 전도하다가 기적에 가까운 일이 있었는데요, 미국에서 베켓자매님의 사촌의 집에서 홈스테이를 했었던 한 여자분을 만났습니다!!^^ 이름은 송다예이시고 매드슨회장님께서 자매님들께 직접 연락하셔서 정보를 알려주실거에요:D WHICH MEANS: "Hello Sister Beckett and Sister P! It is a good night. Today Elder Murray and I were proselyting and we saw something close to a miracle: we met a girl who stayed with Sister Beckett's cousins house for a foreign exchange program. Her name is SDY and President Madson will contact you directly and give you her information."
PRETTY SWEET, HUH? It turns out that she walked up to the elders and asked if they knew "Allie Beckett" Hhahahah WHAT THE?!!?!? Small world. I never expected that! So I called her up, and she sounds soooo fun! She stayed with Darin and Kris and Chandra! I think it was when Kayla was on her mission. Anyway, she is about to start winter break, so once she starts winter break she really wants to meet me, so she will travel about 4 hours from Daejeon to Mokpo! HOW CUTE IS THAT!!! And I am hoping and praying that we will be able to get her interested in the gospel. SUCH A MIRACLE!!! God definitely lined that one up!! :D
|We got the Christmas package! AND WE DIED because the meth pops were sooooo good! Way to go, Dad!|
I am so thankful for Jesus, and I admire Him so much. He bravely came to earth and conquered all. He did what none of us could do. I am so thankful for Him and His dedication and love. Don't forget to celebrate His birth and life this week through your thoughts and actions!
