We had a awesome miracle last week, we were tracting and trying to find investigators to teach as we all do as missionaries, we were looking for a former investigator and we knocked at this home and a lady opens up she smiled at us (that doesn't usually happen). We then asked (with a smile) if she was Dedra. She told us that Dedra was her landlord, so we talked to her. At first she seemed not to be interested and she told us she has her own church. We then told her about the blessings of families and how our message will bless her family and that they can be more united. She told us to come by Saturday at 3 pm. We were happy to hear those words.
Saturday came and we went met with them. She was married with a 5 month old baby boy. We met with the husband we talked and we taught them the restoration, a lot of their questions were answered and my companion (Elder Watson) with boldness invited them to be baptized (PMG style) for June 16 and they accepted. The Spirit truly helped us in that lesson; they come to church the next day and they loved it.
Elder Bednar’s words come to my mind later in the week: "success doesn't come because we deserve it or qualify for it. It is a gift from God."
I'm grateful to be part of this great and marvelous work and help our Father in Heaven to bring souls unto repentance. What a great joy this is!
