We are teaching a man named Oscar! We have taught him a couple times and the first time we went he said the typical "sorry I wasn't able to read this week." and we were oober bummed so we read with him and got him started and then this last week when we went to teach him he had read like 20 some odd pages!! It was amazing and he was asking all these amazing questions and we were able to answer all of them and teach directly to his needs! I loved every moment of it! He is so amazing! We are still in the finding process, but we are beginning to see miracles from our tracting efforts! We are hopefully going to teach 5 new people this week. We have it all scheduled so cross our fingers it all works out! :) Heavenly Father had been blessing us so much it's amazing!
Oh and something really funny that Sister Steadman and I have been noticing is that... we teach all black men.. yeah... it's quite hilarious, and we tend to only street contact and knock on doors where they live. So we have like 5 investigators and 4 potential investigators that are all men, and black, it's awesome! They have the greatest personalities and I love every moment of it! And it's great because we have to have another female with us so they automatically get to meet people from the ward! It's awesome!
I have started the Book of Mormon again and am loving every minute! It is such an amazing book! There are so many things I can learn when I take the time to read and apply it to my life! Like Lehi's dream for example. Those people that cling unto the iron rod (or word of God) when they partake of the fruit they are ashamed and turn away. Then their are the people that continually hold fast to the iron rod and when they get to the tree they fall to their knees and partake of the fruit because they know how precious it is! SO who are we! do we randomly cling to the rod, where we read every once in a while, pray sometimes, and go to church because we feel obligated. Or are we continually feasting upon the words of God daily, and praying always, and going to partake of the sacrament to be cleansed each week?! I hope and pray I am and will continue to be the second. Because they don't ever fall away! No matter what happens in life, or what is thrown at us if we are continually remembering Heavenly Father he WILL continually bless us!! Mosiah 2:41And moreover, I would desire that ye should consider on the blessed and ahappy state of those that keep the commandments of God. For behold, they are bblessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual; and if they hold out cfaithful to the end they are received into dheaven, that thereby they may dwell with God in a state of never-ending happiness. O remember, remember that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoken it."
I love you all and I hope you have an amazing week!! No matter what trials you may be going through continually hold fast and keep the commandments and you will be happy!!
