Zone conference with one of my favs from MTC Sister Maingot
I don’t have much time but I would like to share two incredible experiences that happened this week. On Friday, Sister Araujo and I were leaving our apartment and knelt down to prayer before leaving our house, as usual, and during the prayer we asked Heavenly Father very specifically, that when we left our apartment to work, He could help us find a family that would come to church. After the prayer we both looked at each other, a little surprised, but determined to find this family. AND IMMEDIATELY WHEN WE OPENED THE DOOR OF OUR APARTMENT THERE WAS A FAMILY RIGHT THERE!!!!!!! We approached them started to talk and they were SO NICE!! One of the nicest families I have met here in Portugal and turns out they know our bishop and live in the same complex as 3 of our members. THEY ARE COMING TO CHURCH THIS SUNDAY! Heavenly Father is absolutely incredible. He hears and answers every single prayer and always on His time table.
BIRTHDAY!! Cannot believe I am 20… Crazy. Time flies.
After leaving this family, we got a call from a family we have not been able to visit because they live about 2 hours away (Yes our area is that big) and they said “My husband and I were talking and decided that since you all can’t come here we will come to you. Can we come to church this Sunday?” OH MY GOODNESS. MIRACLES AFTER MIRACLES. Heavenly Father is listening.
P.S. President had a little competition for the missionaries this month and whoever brought the most investigators to church won a special lunch with him and his wife AND… WE ARE HAVING A SPECIAL LUNCH WITH PRESIDENTE AND SISTER AMORIM!!!!!!!
Castle of Leiria
Last miracle, one of investigators Isabel has such a desire to know if the Book of Mormon is true and we invited her to read and pray about it and specifically ask Heavenly Father if it is true and this week she sent us a text and asked us ” Sisters, what kind of feeling will I feel when I know the Book of Mormon is true” and we responded with a scripture in Galatians about the fruits of the spirit and asked if we could visit her. When we were in her house, she was relating her experience of how she felt and I have never felt the spirit more strong. She said she has never felt this feeling before and she feels the same exact feeling EVERY time she reads the Book of Mormon. The spirit testified to her very clearly that day that the Book of Mormon is true AND she accepted the invitation to be baptized!!!!!! AHHH! I AM SO HAPPY FOR HER!!!
