Weekly Updates!This week we had some amazing finding experiences with the spirit and teaching others of how to feel it! Last Monday at the library we were emailing and the man at the computer next to me was struggling with the mouse and internet and technology in general so I talked to him and helped him and he talked to me for a bit before finding out I was a missionary. After he found out we were missionaries we had a sweet gospel conversation and he asked us to pray for his friend. His name is Brother Marshall and he's from South Bend but the South Bend Sisters were with us so we quickly referred him and they set up an appointment! After he was done emailing we went in a corner and prayed, all 6 of us from that table he told us he was so blessed to sit on, which was crazy! The Sisters taught him last week on exchanges and already have another appointment with him!
Wednesday we were tracting and got a referral from a guy who thought it was great we were missionaries but told us that as long as you're serving God, it doesn't matter what church you go to, which we get a lot in Mishawaka! We went over to see her and she was so sweet! Her name was Christina and she was going through a divorce, so a message helped so much! We gave her a five minute restoration lesson which we have been practicing a lot in the mission, when we asked if she had five minutes we could tell her more about our message after the initial contact and she said yes, just like we'd role played I could hardly believe it I was so excited! By the end of the lesson she had a great big smile and you could tell it was by the spirit! After sharing the first vision we asked how she felt and she said humbled, and good, and we taught her about the spirit, prompted by our learnings from mission conference! Since then we have been teaching about the spirit a lot and it is helping so many people! She wasn't feeling well when we saw her last but we will be trying back, soon!
