This has been a great week. We were trying to figure out how to find more people to teach, and we asked for some suggestions from some of the members. We were able to meet with one member. He gave us some great advice and got each of us very excited. I'm happy to try it out.
We have been asking for referrals a lot more, and inviting the members to act. It's exciting. It feels like we are just recruiting more people to help with the work. We received a great referral out of the blue yesterday. I'm really excited to contact them and get to know them. It's a family, so it would be very neat to see them get closer to Christ.
Super neat thing as well, we went to a bible study at a smaller non denominational church. The pastor was sick and lost her voice, so we joked around before it started and said we should preach instead. Haha. But when it was starting, before she got up to preach, she said the Holy Ghost confirmed that we should preach. Our preaching style was different than anyone there was used to. I was pretty nervous, but we talked about charity, being a disciple of Christ, and threw in baptism, repentance, and other things. It turned out great! They were so happy that we preached. They really liked seeing young men doing something like that. It was a pretty neat experience. The Spirit was there.
We are also working with a less active member who wants to come back. His name is Walter. I really enjoy working with people that already have a desire to come to church. There are still some things that are holding him back, and we will have to work with him on it. A great guy though. Really excited to work with him.
Love y'all, Have an amazing week!
