To My Amazing Family!
No drought in finding the elect this week!:) We had such a wonderful week in finding and look forward to the next return appointments we get with these people! One is tonight! My heart has been filled with joy and my eyes filled with tears as we taught Chantel's (our investigator from Africa) brother in- law...who has been visiting from Africa! He came to church this week and we were able to teach him about the Restoration during Sunday School with a member who speaks French so he could translate into Thomas' native language for us! As we taught and testified the spirit was overwhelmingly strong and it all made sense to Thomas! All throughout the lesson he was thanking Sister Roberts and I. He would share with us how happy he is to bring this back to Africa and share it with all. I wish I could describe to you how I felt but it is hard to put into words. He told us he sees missionaries often but never knew what they taught. He truly has been prepared for this message and I am grateful for him and how he has strengthened my testimony! I will never forget the lesson with him. As we walked out of the classroom the last thing Thomas said to us was, "keep doing what you are doing, you will change the world." If anyone is going to change the world, it is him. He is the one who is going to go to Africa and invite others to hear the words of Christ from the missionaries there! We sure can't do that!:) Monday as a mission we sang the primary song "We'll Bring the World His Truth" to President and Sister Searle since today is there last day!:( ...and that is my mission.....to bring to world his truth, or at least the people here in Norwalk and Darien;) Well, I love you all and miss you bunches! Have a spectacular 4th of July and until next week....XOXO!
