What a wonderful week the Lord has blessed us with! We have seen some amazing miracles!
Firstly there is a man we have been trying to teach for the Longest time named Manuel Rodriguez. We've stopped by his house several times last transfer and every time we did his wife (who is a member) told us that he wasn't ready yet. So we ended up dropping him for future missionaries. This past week during planning, Elder Holmes saw his name in the area Book and felt really impressed to stop by. So we did and we knocked on the door again. His wife answered the door again and looked more cheerful this time. We asked how she was doing and then I said "the reason we are here is to share the gospel with your husband." She smiled, turned, and yelled "Manuel, the missionaries have a question for you!" He let us in immediately and we got to know him a little. We taught him the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He was attentive the entire time and when we invited him to be baptized he said yes but that he needs time. We asked what he was doing and he told us that he was reading the Book of Mormon with his family. Elder Holmes and I then both shared our testimonies and how we came to know that these things were true. We're going to meet with him again this week and help him exercise his faith towards a baptism date. Please keep Manuel Rodriguez in your prayers.
This week I finished studying Jacob 5 and what an amazing chapter!!!! I want to share a couple verses that impacted me. This is the Lord speaking to His servants right before He gathers Israel for the last time.
Let's all choose to be one of the Lord's few servants as all who are a member of His church have been called to do the work. I know that Jesus Christ lives and guides us and that He is preparing the wold for His second coming.
