Week 52- Miracles In July

This week has been great. We were able to do a ton of volunteering. Spray painting a big cabinet, moving and packing furniture, cleaning and organizing clothes hangers, and other stuff. We also had great lessons with both Jerry and Aaron. I thought Aaron might drop us at the beginning of last week because he didn't show up to church like he said he would, but then we had a really good lesson and he actually came this week! He came in by himself and just sat by himself. I was frustrated because I wanted to meet him when he came in and have him sit by a member he knows. But luckily after sacrament, we were able to introduce him to some great members. And what are the odds that President Bascom, the stake president, just happens to speak in church? That talk really touched Aarons heart. And President Bascom came and talked with him afterwards and gave him some great advice to listen to us and pray to know for himself. It was quite the blessing.
Jerry is going to get baptized. I just know it. He is so ready. I know he will recieve an answer as he comes to church and continues to read the Book of Mormon. 
We set a goal to have 2 other lessons last week. When sunday came around, we didn't have any. So we decided to go tract and see what happens. We don't usually have lessons while tracting, but yesterday we actually had 2! Almost three. We have a return appointment with one lady, and the other guy we ran into said he was looking for a church and that he would pray to know if he should consider us. It was a miraculous Sunday.
There are still a lot I'm trying to improve on. At our Zonr Meeting, I was fairly humbled, realizing a lot of my weaknesses. But God gives us weaknesses, that we might turn to Him and make them strengths.
Love y'all! Have a great week!
-Elder Chandler Allen
