This week has been incredible… it truly has! I am sorry to hear that the warriors lost but sounds like it was a crazy finals! Hahahahha. But it was good to hear from all of you family and friends! I love hearing about what you are doing!
This week, has been a testimony builder and life changer. The last few weeks have been quite difficult, my investigators couldn’t meet and it was heart breaking and frustrating to almost lose them! I wanted to relate a few experiences from this last week.
First, is a testimony of the power of fasting…
Brother Cho and Sister Hah! Our Chinese investigators! Age:28, and 24! They are incredible and so prepared. 2 weeks ago we taught the law of chastity, they accepted but were a new it would be hard, they were also prepared to be baptized on the 18th, but after that lesson we had not met for two weeks and had very little contact! I thought they were frustrated or embarrassed and didn’t want to meet. I was so worried. I decided to fast for them this last Wednesday, So I did, I felt so much spirit that day, and that night we were supposed to meet at English but they didn’t show up, I was pretty devastated… The next day Elder Yamashita from the 70 came! He is the first councilor in our area presidency. He talked with us at our mission conference and it was incredible, I felt his love and energy and he talked on “be believing” and “be obedient” And so many other amazing things, after he touched on “be believing” I reflected on those wonderful Chinese friends of mine, I said a short prayer in my hear, “Heavenly Father, I have done all I know to do for them, please help them, and help me to be able to meet with them again.” Moments after that prayer our phone vibrated in my pocket, it was a text from Sister Hah, the text explained how busy they had been with tests and how she was also preparing an interview for graduate school, but she needed my help with it! So she asked if we had time the very next day to meet. I was amazed and filled with the love of God. I was so humbled by the mighty power and miracles of God. I first prayed to thank him for this opportunity and then responded that we could meet!
the next is a day of miracles, my testimony of the witness coming after the trial…
The next day we met with both Sister Hah and her boyfriend brother Cho! I helped preparing for the interview and while doing so the commandments came up, I asked how they were going. And they responded that they were keeping all of the commandments and wanted so much to be baptized, they said they were soooo busy this week that they couldn’t get baptized but next week they want too! We set their new date for the 26th, They are preparing and are super amazing! Afterwards we went to Brother Kang’s house to try to meet a family who we unsuccessful tried met the day before. They actually felt really bad about that and invited us to their house for the first time and we ate with them.. and had a lesson on families! We also had not been able to meet with them for a very long time! It was an amazing miracle but we were late coming home. And we needed a taxi bad! But that spot wasn’t super popular for taxis…. but after a day filled with miracles and being so full of the spirit. I know God would send us one immediately if we prayed. I said, “Elder Sanders I will pray for a taxi.” So I did. On the side of the street. And the second I closed and looked up, a taxi was 20 feet in front of us and was open and ready. Immediate answer to our faithful prayer. God cares about all of his children. I know that he lives and loves us, each person! I know that he is a God of miracles and works miracles in our days! I know he is a God of mercy and if we never give up… He will always be there to help us up and keep going! I know this is the Work of the Lord! I know this gospel is true!
