This week was pretty awesome. The best thing was our golden investigator!!
So last week I mentioned an investigator named Anisa right? Well in the last week we have discovered that she is about as golden as they come. She has been led to the church by miracle after miracle. Now she is set to be baptized on November 12.
So I'll tell you a short version of one of her many miracles. She is a very faithful person and has always believed in God. A few years ago she had a strange experience where a random old woman spoke to her and asked her if she believed in miracles. She said yes, and the woman told her she needed to look for something, but she couldn't pronounce the word, so she wrote it down.
Anisa thought that was really strange, but she searched a bit for it, and found nothing, then kind of forgot about it after a while. Then fast forward a few years, and her good friend invited her to attend her church (our church). So she went, and while she was there, she felt the Spirit really strongly and began to cry a lot. After the meeting, her friend suggested that she get a blessing. Anisa accepted and they ran to the Elders. (this is the Elders right before I came). They gave her a blessing, and the Elder doing it felt that he should explain to her about the Melchizidek Priesthood, and he did. Of course, she made the connection and she knew this was what she was looking for.
Moral of the story, God is leading all of His children to come back to him. God works in mysterious ways. Sometimes, even through random old ladies.
I love miracles!!
See you all!
