Because the Spirit Said So

This week was a little crazy, we went over to a local college campus and did the Book of Mormon experiment with the college students which was awesome! I loved being on a campus with people around the same age group haha.

On Wednesday night we had a really awesome miracle happen. I was on an exchange with another elder and as the night was coming to an end we had about 45 minutes before we needed to be in for the night so we looked at a map to see where the Lord needed us to go.

I felt a prompting to go to a specific street but the street was a 15 minute bike ride away. Meaning we would only have a few minutes there before we had to head back. I decided to make the call and go for it, (not telling my companion it was 15 minutes away… whoops) we finally got to this neighborhood and we locked up our bikes and started walking.

A lady came outside of a house I had knocked on a few months back and in my head I was thinking, “we already talked to them they aren’t interested” and I was going to keep walking but the Spirit told both me and my companion to go and talk to her again.

All the sudden we yell across the street to get her attention then we started talking to her about Christmas and Light the World. By the end of talking we had taught the restoration, gave her a Book of Mormon, left her with stuff to read, and put her on date to be baptized Christmas Eve.

I was not expecting that outcome honestly. But it made complete sense because it was purely out of inspiration that we were able to meet her at the right time and place.

Anything is possible when you follow the spirit. I hope everyone has a wonderful week! I love you! 

Love,
