This past week has been solid! Hit my year mark this past week which is crazy! It doesn't seem like I have been out that long... time is going by too fast!
This past week we have had some powerful lessons! Miracles are happening here in Fourways! Gillian and Nick are doing powerful, Nick is just a stud who reads the book of Mormon all the time and loves it! Gillian is his wife and knows that everything is true as well, but has been lacking a little bit in commitment! She thinks that her faith is weak. We had a great lesson with her that seemed to spark a fire in her.. She is reading as well everyday now and is loving it! With Nick we got a little time to just talk personally to him alone, we were able to discuss the blessings of the holding the Priesthood and how much all of this will bless his family! He is willing to act!
Khumbo is continuing to be sweet! He bore his testimony of the restored gospel to us in his last lesson and the spirit was so strong! He grew up a Muslim, but knows that this is true! We are still waiting for his wife to get back from Zimbabwe!
Chimwemwe is doing great! He is coming to church and progressing like crazy! He should be getting baptised in July!
One of the most committed investigators we have is Monique! She has known the church for a while because her boyfriend is a member, but has just now decided to meet with us! We left her 3 Nephi 11 to read and she read all the way up to chapter 26!! She is accepting everything and really searching for that answer! I am so grateful for all the help the Lord is giving us in this area!
In my study I as well read from 3 Nephi again! I love it and am learning so much! Something that I got out of it was from chapter 17 verse 6, After Christ had taught them he told them to go Home (with their families), Ponder, Ask for themselves if it was true, and prepare themselves for the next time he would come! What really stood out to me was first of all the importance of learning as a Family! "If you want to go fast, go alone; If you want to go far, go together!" Also, after they had heard from Jesus Christ himself, he still asked them to seek their own personal revelation and answer through pondering and prayer! I am so grateful for this gospel! It is SO true!
Love you all!
