Elder Ballard told us that if we as a companionship talk to 20 new people a day, we will double the baptisms in the mission! So me and Elder Hayes were like, alright how are we going to do this, we are driving all over the place, and not walking. Its a lot easier to have conversations while you are walking. So me and Elder Hayes sent out a mass text to everyone in the Branch, saying that we need 2 snow shovels. And of course we got 2 snow shovels. So when we are driving around and we see people that are shoveling there driveway, we stop the truck and get out and help them shovel! We shoveled 15 driveways that day! Yeah I am pretty soar! Haha but what a difference it makes in others lives!
We finally got a new investigator and we found her through a member and the story goes. Our new investigator was walking down the street on a Sunday morning about 30 minutes before church started and one of the members pulled over and asked if she needed a ride and so she got in the car. And then the member asked where she wanted to go, and she said that she was just walking to that church at the end of the street, I thought I should check it out! What a Miracle! We had a lesson with her yesterday and she wants to meet with us next Sunday! Oh how much I love doing the working of the Lord! It is a great day to be a missionary!
Love you all, and always follow the prompting of the Holy Spirit, because if we don't then we will miss an opportunity to share the Gospel with someone!
