COLE WILL BE HOME
JULY 16, 2013
This is going to be short, so sorry it´s not quite an epic last email of the mission. I was busy revising and sending my stewardship report, which you can read when I get home.
Pretty eventful day yesterday. There is power in Fasting. fasting really works.
So, investigators are low here in Republica and we hadn't taught a lesson to an investigator in about 2 weeks (eek). We've knocked just about all the doors that there are in the sector (think of how many houses with doors there are in downtown Santiago), but we´re still struggling. But after we fasted Saturday to Sunday, we were able to teach 3 lessons to investigators with Members present in the lessons just YESTERDAY. Only one of them actually lives here in the sector, but it was amazing to actually teach investigators again. And we saw a prophetic promise be fulfilled in the house of a member who, after praying last week to know who she should share the Book of Mormon with, invited her workmate to her house to listen to the missionaries (us):
"I promise you, as you pray to know with whom to speak, names and faces will come into your mind. Words to speak will be given in the very moment you need them. Opportunities will open to you. Faith will overcome doubt, and the Lord will bless you with your very own miracles." Yesterday, we saw a miracle.
That´s my little spiritual thought for the week. Sorry it´s so short, but that mayordomía paper really ate up my time.
I love you all, and I´ll see you next TUESDAY!!!!!!!!!!
