A Cool Miracle

December 14, 2015

My companion and I did not know what to do because it was 8:30ish on Sunday night and pitch black and we still had time before we were supposed to be in so we decided to go to an investigator's house. This investigator had been taught by missionaries before, and when we knocked on his door, a friend of his opened the door and let us in.

We saw our investigator sitting on the floor with two other people playing a card game when he stood up and said hello and welcomed us in. The other two individuals looked up and their faces went from smiling to not smiling and we were hesitant to stay but were prompted to and it turns out that the other individuals had a lot of questions they had heard about Mormons from the internet and started rattling off usual things we seem to hear from people who don't know a whole lot about our faith in Christ and finally one said "I gave my life to Christ Long ago so I am good" and we asked him what it meant to him to give his life to Christ and asked why we hadn't "given ours while we lived a fun life" so we explained a lot of how the lifestyle we live helps us continually give ourselves to Christ. He wanted to learn more and his friend that was there also wanted to learn more about the Gospel of Jesus Christ as well in how we believed.

My companion gave them the pamphlet of the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and briefly talked about the importance of God's Love and receiving a witness while I pulled out the Book of Mormon from under our investigator's laptop and said that this was from God loving us and we invited them to read, pray and be baptized and they accepted all three and asked if we could come back Thursday around the same time so they knew they could be home. We said sure and are still studying to help answer their questions.
