Once upon a time there were two sister missionaries named Sister Hinton and Sister Bradley. They served in the best area in the mission, Evansville Indiana. They worked and worked and tried their hardest and Miracles started happening. They begin to happen every week, and there was a huge one in the last week! Okay, so I do really want to tell you about this miracle! A couple of weeks ago we were led by the spirit to knock on a house as we were walking to a referral. This wonderful lady named Leeta answered and we said a prayer with her. This prayer brought her to tears because she felt the spirit so strongly. We set up an appointment and invited her to order a free DVD about Christ. We went back to the appointment and no answer. She called the number and ordered a free DVD, so they sent her as a referral from headquarters. We set up another appointment and went back this last week. We briefly taught Leeta because she wasn't feeling well, and set up another appointment for a few days later so her husband could be there. We went back and this was no ordinary lesson. This lesson was a powerful lesson with two of the most prepared people I have ever met! Leeta and her husband asked many great questions and they felt the spirit strongly. They had a strong desire to read, pray, come to church, and be baptized! It was the first time we had met her husband Joe and he had already read everything in the beginning of the Book of Mormon up to chapter 2 in 1 Nephi. It was amazing! He loved it too! Leeta said she felt something different in her life since we came and prayed with her. She has already received anti from people and has blown it off! They are elect!! There Baptismal date is for November 30. They are simply AMAZING!! I love them so much already!
Brodie- He is doing well. He is struggling and searching to know what is right. He has such a strong desire to know what is true. He is a lot like Joseph smith. We are trying to help him the best way possible. At this moment we feel that he knows it is true, but is scared to admit it because of everyone around him. Everyone around him besides those of us who are members are trying to sway him different directions. We expressed Heavenly Fathers love for him and how Heavenly Father wants him to know the truth. We are being patient with him and are praying for him all the time. He is wonderful!
Mark- He is great! He was taught by missionaries last year and we are teaching him again. The best part is, is that he already knows half of the ward and is dating a member. We had a super powerful lesson with him last week with a couple members. A light bulb came on in his mind and he recognized the things he needs to do to experience happiness. It was great!
Nick- He over thinks everything! We finally met with him after a couple of weeks, and he told us he would get Baptized! It was sweet! He came to a baptism yesterday and enjoyed it a lot! He is so awesome!
