A week of miracles

This week was prrrrrrretty slow again . . . Haha . . . But the Lord is really blessing me with this upbeat attitude that I don’t completely understand how I can keep!  But it’s definitely a good thing!

This week we had a few miracles.  First one was on Monday night.  Elder Rodrigues and I were finishing our planning for the night and we heard some young kids sittin’ in front of our house.  Now, keep in mind that we had a tough week with practically no investigators.  So, normally, when kids are talking at 10pm at night, it’s about relationships, drugs, or Telly Tubbies.  But, no . . . What were they talking about?  The Bible!  What?!?!?  We were shocked!  So, we walked out there and talked to them.  Turned out to be five young girls around 14 years of age.  They are all way into the Bible and religion, so we invited them to a Church activity that week and didn’t think too much of it.  But . . . We should have!  Cuz THAT is a sign!  And, then, all of them showed up to the activity!  And the loved it!!!!  My gosh!  Such a huuuuuuuge answer to prayers!

The next miracle happened yesterday.  Basically, all of our investigators dropped going to Church when we thought we had tons of “firm” people.  So, basically, no investigators at Church except three of those five girls I just told you about.  But then, suuuuuuper random, a lady we contacted in the street turned up!  Sooooo random!  We were way confused . . . Haha . . . But very happy!  We spoke with her that night, too, and she is awesome.  We will be returning to her house sooooooon!  Wednesday, I believe!

Ah . . . Three miracles . . . My mistake.  And, the last . . . Wow . . . I will explain . . . We were walking past a huuuuuuge Betel (probably different name in English) church to visit a less active member.  I had this weird feeling, or maybe I heard them, I don’t know.  But, like ten seconds after, two girls ran up behind us to talk to us.  I was just thinking, “What are you doing?  It’s OUR job to make people feel awkward in the street!”  Anyway . . . Naiane is 20 and Jaquelinen is 16 and both have attended toooooons of different churches.  They said they hadn’t found that place where they reeeeeally felt happy and comfortable and that they were still searching for something . . . They just didn’t know what it was.  “Oh, hey!  I have an idea!!!!!!!”  Yeah . . .BOOM . . . Called up a recent convert and got over to her house and taught an amaaaaaazing lesson.  The Spirit was incredible!  I could feel it even before we started!  So, when we got to the First Vision . . . I felt like I was going to explode!  It was absolutely incredible!  Both of them cried at some point during that lesson.  Aaaaah . . . I wish you all could have been there!  If that’s not a miracle, I don’t know what is!!!!

The Lord just put them right in our path because they are ready!  More like He put us in THEIR path, actually!  Sooooo awesome!  So, we will be going back to talk with him in two days.

Everyone . . . The Church is true.  God is there and He has a plan.  We might not understand it.  Most times, we won’t.  But the way that He works is AMAZING.  God truly is a God of miracles!  I LOVE YOU ALLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love, Elder Jensen
