Everyone… It has happened. Grand Blanc North has 2 new investigators.
Ok ready for the amazing miracle of this week?
So on Monday President Gerber invited each companionship in the mission to find 5 new investigators this week. Not gonna lie, I was a little skeptical. But he is a man called of God and I have to trust that everything he does is by revelation. So I had the faith. Well, let me tell you, it was hard to have the faith because nothing was happening all week! Every time we went tracting not much happened. On Wednesday we tracted into this lady (Lisa) who has a special needs daughter. She felt the spirit and she wanted a Book of Mormon. It was a really cool experience but there was still that little voice in the back of my mind saying “you’ve had this happen before. When you go back to her she won’t be interested.” So it was nice but I didn’t really think anything would come of it. So yesterday (Sunday) we had some time before going to our next appointment and we were going to go tracting. But we saw on the GPS that Lisa and our next appointment were actually really close by. So we prayed and felt like we should go. Except we both felt really nervous to go too. We were nervous because we didn’t know if the husband would be home this time. And if he was we were worried that he wouldn’t be as open as his wife and all that. But when he answered the door he was all smiley and invited us in to meet their daughter! So long story short, we taught them, got to know them, they felt the spirit and want to know more, and we are going back next Sunday!!!!!! They are so awesome and they struggle A LOT with having a special needs child. We testified that through the restored gospel of Jesus Christ they can receive peace and strength. The spirit was so strong. It truly was a miracle. OH! Also, it was fast Sunday! And we have been reading in Alma how the sons of Mosiah always fasted and prayed and then they saw miracles and success. It was so cool!
Another cool miracle is that we had 5 less-actives at church! One couple just moved out of her Pentecostal parents’ house and so they will be able to come more often now!
We got to watch the Women’s Conference on Saturday. It was so good and those little girls singing was so cute! I loved that they talked so much about covenant keeping. I can’t wait for my first General Conference out in the field! So far we are watching 2 sessions with 2 different less-active families. So that’s exciting. We have Stake Conference too after that.
OOH! Exciting news! On May 20 (Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad) Elder Holland is coming to Michigan! But he’s is going to Lansing. But Lansing AND Detroit missionaries get to go! It’s for all missionaries and ward councils. It’s not for like 2 months but it’s still super exciting!
Thank you for your prayers. I love you guys so much.
Love, Sister Watko 🙂
