Miracles


After the Primary Sacrament Meeting program in our branch
This week started off with special training from the mission president and the assistants on Tuesday, taking place of district meeting.  The training focused on finding and baptizing.  Our goal for the month of October is to have 50 baptisms in our zone.  It's going to be a miracle if we are able to do it.  Sista Ouamambare and I have been finding and finding and finding!!  We found ten more new investigators this week and reached almost all of our goals for the week.  Miracles are happening every day here!!  This past week we made a goal to teach a certain amount of lessons.  It was the last day and we were 7 lessons away from our goal.  I thought that there would be no way we could reach it, but as we prayed together in the morning we asked for help and a miracle.  We were able to teach exactly 7 lessons that day!  We went home so tired and so happy.  God will keep his end of the deal when we do all that we can do.  I know it.

We continued to work with Shila and Kalo this week.  We had a wonderful lesson with Mama Suzanne as a member present.  It was perfect because she was Protestant before, as was Papa Kalo.  We taught them the Plan of Salvation and Papa Kalo just kept telling us over and over again how it all just makes sense.  He says other churches just leave out half the plan or leave out important parts.  Mama Suzanne was just the person we needed to have teach with us.  Strong members are such a blessing and we are so blessed to have a few very strong members in our area.  

As we were walking to church on Sunday I was praying to be able to have a miracle come to church.  On Saturday we had called or visited most of our investigators inviting them to church.  Although none of them came, Sabrina did come.  She hasn't been to church in over a month and so I texted her on Saturday inviting her to come too . . . and she did!  We talked and she told me that she had "failed" and didn't feel like she could come back to church.  Mama Joyce acted on a prompting and called Sabrina.  She talked to her and explained repentance again.  She repented and she even received a calling to be Relief Society Secretary!  I was so happy to see her again.  She was the miracle I was praying for.

Sunday night we also got to watch the general women's meeting at the Banban chapel.  Only a few of us were there, but sitting there in our natangura chapel watching conference in Bislama on a little computer screen was such a neat experience.  The spirit was so strong.  I felt like one of the main focuses of the meeting was faith and constantly working to increase it.  The talks were fantastic.  

Well, I think that's it for this week.  I love you all and I love this work.  The church is true!
