This week was interesting...
Saturday, our investigator, J---, invited us to a Catholic mass. I was pretty excited to go, considering I had never been to one. Some of the people were super nice and inviting, but I didn't feel the most comfortable. It was interesting...and that's all I have to say about that.
Our recent convert's neighbor tried giving her some anti last week. "I've only been a member for two months, and I already know this is junk!" hehe :)
Tuesday, we tried visiting an inactive member. Found out he's an anti-Christ. All you can really do is testify of what you know to be true...until they cut you off, and pray hard for a softened heart.
|And so it begins...|
We had been waiting for a miracle all week, and it finally happened on Sunday. A member's inactive son, who she had been praying for everyday, came to church and bore his testimony. He said he had been inactive for a while, and his life had kind of gone down the drain, so he thought it would be a good idea to come back to church. The whole congregation was SOBBING. They knew how much it meant to his mom, and to Heavenly Father.
It's sad, but sometimes we have to go through devastation to remember our Heavenly Father. We go through trials and we make mistakes; that's why we had a Savior come to this earth and take away all of those pains and mistakes from us so we could live with Him and our Heavenly Father again. He paid the price, but we need to keep His commandments. You are never alone through your trials; Christ knows exactly what you're going through because He has experienced it. We need to turn to Him so he can help us and make our burdens become light.
