This week we were definitely BLESSED!
1. We had 3 hours of lessons cancel on us, so we went street contacting. As we were praying where to go, I felt like we should go down this alley (kinda sketchy.) After this, we saw 1 door, it also was kinda sketchy.. BUT we felt like that was the door we were suppose to knock on. We went up and knocked on it and we were able to testify of the truth. It seemed like she was interested! It was absolutely amazing how the Lord was able to speak to us so clearly though The Spirit! We now call it "magic door"
2. I told you last week about the kid who told us all about MMA fighting. We had a lesson with his family! What a great experience! Moral of the story is to always listen to people, even if they tell you about MMA fighting! This kid absolutely loves us! He is so awesome! It was great we could meet with his family and testify of things that we know are true!
3. This one was my favorite!
We get a call from someone and he said, he and his family wanted to meet with us. We don't know who he was or anything about him, but we set up a lesson. We drive over to Peqin (about 30 mins away.) Not knowing what to expect. THIS FAMILY IS PREPARED BY GOD! We start teaching them and turns out the dad has a Book Of Mormon already, and he said, "sorry I should have read more but I read it all the way though once!!!" The daughter told us about how she loves reading the Bible and how she feels good when she reads it, the Spirit! They all have the strongest faith I have ever heard! They own a store next to the road and they closed it to meet with us because they said, "This is more important." We had an amazing lesson. At the end we asked the girl to pray and she thanked God for answering her prayers though us! ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!
PRAYER IS AMAZING!
Spiritual thought: (if that wasn't spiritual enough)
There are a lot of times in our life when we are going through trials and don't think we can't make it. We want to give up the fight. We don't think we can hold on any longer.
While Christ was suffering for the sins of this world, and many others, he asked the father "If it be thy will, can you let this cup pass from me"
Even the Lord of Lord. The King of Kings asked if there was another way.
Life isn't always easy, but I am grateful for the fact that we have someone who knows exactly what we are going through, someone who loves us more then we can imagine. Someone who loves us so much he is willing to suffer for us through the Atonement, an amazing act of Charity.
I know that Christ is my Savior and I am grateful that I can share this message of peace and happiness with the people of Albania, so they can feel of his love as I have!
