• Miracle of.... wait what happened?
• So want a cool photo spot? I'm Down.
• Lawrenceville for the 7 1/2 month marker
This week we had an exchange and I went to the Wakefield area with Elder Afemata. He has shown me the example of testimony through an individual. Throughout the day we talked about life and the conversion process and the importance of the testimony of the Book of Mormon. We both agreed that to have or share a testimony, many times, if not all, there has to be a test to have us know certain things in life. An example may be that someone knows that prayer is a way to communicate with God because they had an experience that by praying about something they felt God comfort them or answer a question that was a concern. This is one possible way I have seen the power of prayer be testified. There are many different ways to do so.
Back at home, we's doing good down in “the hood.” We are teaching a guy named Jeff. He is a father of 2 kids and loves the family oriented church. The reason I say it's a miracle is because when we met with him he had to go really quick and said come back tomorrow. Elder Shupe had a great idea to take a break from our weekly planning and stop by Jeff's place (a bit earlier than scheduled) and when we stopped by, he was walking out of his apartment going and waiting at the bus stop for his kid and when we saw each other the first thing he said was "hey what's with all the Lamanites and Nephites going back and forth hating each other". He read the stuff we gave him and said "dang, you Elders are awesome" and is going to be baptized hopefully by the end of May. The reason I say Hopefully is that all he needs is to come to church and he good! We had a few other experiences like that as well. Shirley M. is going to be baptized on the 21st of May as well. Lawrenceville is a bumpin' place.
Oh yeah, this is a place in our area we found. Only been once because of the distance to get there was about 50 miles and we were looking for an inactive member and wanted some peace during a dinner break we had. Good spot for it, wouldn't ya say?
Good place for our dinner breakAlso we had transfer calls and I will stay here with Elder Shupe for another transfer. Good times.
