This week was pretty good. The Ramroops have a marriage and baptismal date, but it might need to be changed because of Carnival weekend. They came to church again this week. 3 Weeks in a row! They are doing great and they are finding so much joy in Christ. Their cousin, Deniesh seems to be softening his heart as well. He has been in many of the lessons and he helped us build a wall for a fish pond in their yard this last week. We'll see where we can go from there. This week I was trying extra hard to listen to the promptings of the spirit. One example was when we were in a lesson with a man named Bobby. We were teaching him about obedience and the lesson was going ok, but he wasn't quite getting it. Then, I felt prompted to share 3 Nephi 27:27 where the Savior teaches about what manner of men we aught to be. "Verily verily, even as I am." As we read through that scripture, the spirit was able to testify and teach Bobby what we could not. I guess that's why it is so important to teach from the scriptures because it allows the spirit to teach what the person isn't understanding from us, but still needs to know. Bobby's neighbor, Eyow a Muslim man sat down with us this week too. He said that he has seen us stop by Bobby everyday to help him stop drinking and smoking and we could tell that his heart had been softened. I never thought that he would talk with us, and I don't think he did either, but we did. He opened up about some questions he has about where we came from, why we are here, and where we are going. He also asked us about what we understood John 3:16 to mean. He couldn't have asked better questions. The lesson went well and I'm excited to see what will happen the next time! It's been a great week!
Love you!
