Update to our "finding"

On Tuesday, August 7, 2012 President and I tried a different approach to finding.  Finding is the 'life blood" of missionary work.  Remember, I asked for your prayers.  Well, Wednesday morning we got a call from a man who was interested in our message and we made an appointment with him for Thursday afternoon at 5:00 PM.  

We just returned from teaching him part of the first lesson--God is our Heavenly Father, we are all his children, God has sent prophets to help us and we have a prophet today.  We shared briefly the Joseph Smith story, and introduced the Book of Mormon.  After reading some of the introduction from the BoM, we bore our testimony to the truthfulness of the book.  President testified that it is evidence that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and either the book is true or it is not--but if he will read and pray about it, he can know for himself.  We read Moroni 10: 3-5.

We left the Book of Mormon and he committed to read it and pray to know if it is true.  He also committed to come to church with us on Sunday.  We will pick him up and take him with us. We have an appointment on Monday evening at 5:30 PM to answer questions, review and teach more.  Missionary work is real and exciting. 

Testimony:  God answers prayers--mine, President's and this man's.  He is searching for something.  He wanted to know how we knew that he was having problems and how we knew to contact him. (Isn't the Spirit an interesting gift).  I want you to know that the minute we began testifying of the Book of Mormon and the Promise of Moroni, the Spirit flooded the room.  We both know that he felt something happening.

After we finished and left, we went out to the car and talked about what had just happened and offered a prayer of thanks and gratitude for answered prayers--ours and yours.  Again, we both felt the Spirit testify to us of the truth of what had just happened in that man's apartment.

We don't know where this is going, or what will happen.  But God knows this man and led us to him.  This both President and I know for sure.  

Dear family and friends, thanks for your continued prayers.
