We saw so many amazing miracles this week, especially working with less active members!
Okay, so first of all, last Monday we had a lesson with a member named Homero. He hasn't been to church in years, and we just found him by calling people on the branch directory. He came to the church for a lesson, and we shared the "Light the World" video with him. He told us that he knows that he needs to come back to church, and he really wants to come back! We found out that he actually lives in the elders' area, but it was still a huge miracle!
We also saw another less active recent convert this week who hasn't been to church in several months. The elders haven't been able to see him in a long time, and he recently moved to our area, so we called him and we were able to set up an appointment to see him, too! We got to know him a bit, and he said that he would come to church(yesterday) and he CAME! We were so excited to see him at church, it was a huge miracle!
My favorite miracle of the week: We had dinner with the Mata family. They live in the elder's area, but we can still have dinner with them. Hermana Mata is super active, and her husband is super less active. He hasn't been active for years. Our spiritual thought after dinner basically turned into an intense lesson. After we left, we were worried that maybe we had been to hard on him. But yesterday HE CAME TO CHURCH!!! We could hardly believe it. He told us "Thank you for bringing me back." Que milagro!!!
We had another cool experience where all three of us felt like we needed to go look for a less active member named Jackson that none of us have ever met, even though we've knocked on his door several times. We went by, and he actually answered the door, and we were able to set a return appointment!
Another evening, we felt inspired to look for another less active member that we didn't know, Oscar. We ended up finding his wife there, who is an active member in the Tongan ward. We shared a message with her about "Light the World" and it turns out that she has been going through a really hard time. She just said "I know you sisters were here for me. Thank you for being in tune with the spirit." It was so powerful!
Keep looking for ways to serve and #LightTheWorld!
