Week 96 - One More Degree, and an Awesome Skype Session with the Family

"At 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, it boils. And with boiling water, comes steam. And with steam, you can power a train."

This is a pretty powerful quote to me and goes hand in hand with going the extra mile! This past week at MLC we talked about just doing a little bit more. This article goes on to say, "Many of life's failures are men who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up." As a missionary, you just never know who is going to accept the message. We never know if we are one contact away, one step away, or one person away. We just never know!

This past week has been filled with more and more miracles. Elder Tuttle and I are just among the midst of miracles! We have been targeting more families and seen the reward from that! We met with a Muslim family this past week here at the church office and talked about the Plan of Salvation and about how families can be together forever! They were just one of the many that we have met and talked to this week!

We were able to meet the man on the bench again and teach The Plan of Salvation to him. He was very happy and excited and really wants to come to church! We now have 2 investigators with baptismal dates one of which is looking like 100% for the 29th of May!! With that, we had 5 investigators make it to church, one of which was in Bali. This guy is a self referal online so we called him and gave him the address. He lives pretty far from where the church is, but yesterday texted us saying he was sitting in the congregation. He sacrificed his day to make it to church! Afterwards he mentioned how there was just more out there and he wanted to know. It was pretty cool! We will hopefully be able to meet with him over skype this week with the many other miracles we have going on here.

I know the church is true! We just never know when that one will receive the gospel!! #MIRACLES!!!!!!! Missionary work is awesome!! Hope all is well! Skype was pretty awesome as well!!
