Our lessons come from knocking on doors

Hey everyone!!

This week has been kind of a slow one. But I've learned a lot. We are both really young missionaries trying to figure out how to do things here so that we can be most effective in our activities and things that we do during the day. Our lessons come from knocking on doors. We had a really cool experience that testifies how strong the spirit is.

We were knocking on Saturday evening. We were knocking in this pretty spread out housing area and we got there late because we walked and it was just a crazy day. We knocked on this door and introduced ourselves as missionaries from the church and this guy started talking to us. At first he was kind of like eh...I was like wait a second so what are some of your beliefs. Just a conversation starter for us to start talking to him and getting to know him a little better. He told us he was agnostic if I remember right. He told us he just didn't know if he could know that something was actually true without seeing it. We didn't go into the scriptures to explain faith, we just shared our testimonies that if we read and pray to our heavenly father to know if these things are true then he would testify to us through our thoughts and in our hearts. He felt the spirit and told us to come back anytime and talk to him more about it and that he would come to church and things. So he didn't come to church but we are going back this week and will help him progress towards baptism and confirmation. I love how the spirit changes people. When they feel the spirit they open up and are a lot more willing to talk to us and understand and do the things that our Heavenly Father has asked for each of us to do.

The spirit is so strong and can help us each to become better and better each day. I love you all and hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and remember to give thanks for everything. It is this gospel that is amazing. I love it so much and I am so grateful for it.
