Where Usain Bolt Broke the World Record....


This week has been a great week so far. We have been finding a lot of new investigators and of course it brings a lot more confidence and trust when it happens. Its really not a better feeling when you talk to someone about the gospel and they except it saying they would like to hear more. And its because we know that its true and how much it will bless their lives. But we had a day where literally it was almost impossible to find a new person to teach, because we had a lot going on already and no time set out for finding. And we were in the bus on the way back to the apartment and we just decided to talk to this lady that had a two year old kid. In the bus we didnt have time to bring the gospel into it, but she ended up getting out at the same stop as us. :) And we kept talking to her about the family and eventually said she would love for us to come by. So its little miracles that show me this is not our work at all, its the Lords and he knows how to do it. He's a pro in this work. Even more of a pro than Michael Jordan was at basketball. ;)
This week I also found a really cool scripture about prayer. Its in Alma 37:37 & Alma 34:39. Prayer is probably one of the most important aspects and actions of the gospel. Its the way we can really get a personal connection and relationship with God. Yeah, maybe sometimes it feels like we arent getting a lot out of it, but we just need to keep doing it because we dont know always what kind of blessings we are receiving. Sometimes so that we can with stand temptation. Sometimes we receive blessings for the future. It is just important to know though that a morning and night prayer with real intent and humility in kneeling down is going give us the strength we need to make it through any trials or problems or times of need. The power behind prayer is real. And as you start to get into a habit of doing this, you will see a difference in your life only for the better.
 Elder Williams and I elder Williams taught the 1st lesson to a great investigator again on exchange because he needed to understand it a little better. After we taught it, he was so excited because it just made sense to him. He understands the power of the Priesthood and the importance of prophets now. It will help everything go sooo much better with him in the rest of what we teach. He agreed to wanting to be baptized on the 9th of may. We are going to do all we can to help him achieve that.
Anyway I am sorry I dont have the most to say this week. Just know that we are teaching a few really good people right now and that they are making a ton of progress. Its cool to see how the Lord works through us (as members) to touch the lives of his children and to bring them back unto him.

Have a swell week. :)

Liebe Grüße
Elder Williams
