Week 44 - Blessings and Priesthood Blessings


This week was a good one. I have two pretty cool stories. 1) We were teaching a guy named Carlos, for a long time. He wasn't progressing, wasn't reading, and didn't want much from us. He told us he didn't want us to come back. About a week passed by, and out of the blue, he called us. He asked if we could come by. We passed by and he explained that one day it rained, he was feeling so depressed that he just stood in the rain. He let it "wash his mind" and then decided he needed to change his life. He came to church this week, and he liked it. He felt peace.

2) Yesterday, as we were leaving the house, we prayed so that we would be able to use our Priesthood to bless the lives of more people. After sacrament meeting, a lady asked us for a blessing. We've never even met this lady before. Later in the day, we went to visit a less-active family. As we get there, there is a lot of commotion. Their neighbor was having a lot of chest pain. We gave her and her son a blessing. They all expressed gratitude to God for sending "His elders" to give them a blessing in their time of need. That makes 5 total this week.

It was a good week. We've seen many miracles and tender mercies. Today we played pool. It was fun.

Hope you all have a great week!
