Week 22

This week was a great week! We were able to get two of our investigators to sacrament meeting, and after sacrament meeting we were able to teach one of them. His name is Sam. We taught him the Plan of Salvation. He had heaps of questions that we were happy to answer, and he was asking about baptism. He wants to worship the way we (Latter Day Saints) worship. It is really great the questions he asks and the stuff we talk about with him. He has had a rough life and has tried to follow God the best he knows how. And he is being blessed because of it.

This is the same guy we gave a blessing to and the next day he came back with job offers and money. He is still struggling financially, but things are looking pretty good for him. He might be able to get his business back and a much more promising job. Since the blessing, he has placed over 100 applications for jobs and is getting heaps of interviews. We will find out today if he will get the job that he has hoped for. Things are looking up for him and his young family. So it was a great week. I think Hurstville Ward is going to get a new member pretty soon. That’s all for this week.

I do know that missionary work blesses the lives of many, I know that priesthood power is real, and I have seen that first hand. And I know that God does answer our prayers. The Lord blesses us when we are up and doing and exercising our faith, not when we are idle and doing nothing. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is True. God lives and knows and loves each and every one of us. I hope you all try to do what the Lord wants you to do. Have a great week! I love you all.
