"..the Lord did pour out his Spirit on all the face of the land to prepare the minds of the children of men, or to prepare their hearts to receive the word.." Alma 16:16


So we got transfer calls on Saturday and me and Sister Caton are staying the same. We were worried there for a bit, but we were excited to learn that we will be together for another transfer. We are now in week 6 of this transfer and we begin our new transfer next week.
We had a really cool experience this week and another great testimony builder on fasting and praying. We are still working on finding two new investigators a week. A member gave us a referral last week and we were able to meet with her and pick her up as a new investigator. We were going to show her at the end of the lesson, but we didn't have time. So I went on her computer and "left it up" and we left. We found out later from the member that she has been watching the videos everyday. So we were excited about that. This Sunday was fast Sunday and we wanted to fast to find new investigators. We went to church that very day and we received a member referral. Also their is this boy who is handicapped and has an aid that brings him to church. Well his aid isn't a member and we went up to her and asked if she was interested about learning more and she was. We gave her a book of Mormon and our number. We couldn't believe it, we were so excited. Later that afternoon we were trying some potentials and we decided to go try this one last potential. Usually when we tried her in the past she was never home and when we knocked on the door she answered and said we could come in. At first when she said we could come in I just stood at the door, I wasn't used to hearing those words. I'm sure I looked so awkward. She is a young mom with a little girl and we taught her the plan of salvation and she said we could come back. We were so excited that we met the goal of 2 new investigators this week. We made sure to say a prayer afterwards thanking the Lord for leading us to these people. It's amazing to see the Lord work in my life. My testimony of fasting and praying has strengthened so much just in this past month. It was a great experience.
I hope you all can fast for these similar experiences. The Lord is really preparing people all around us, we just need to open our eyes and find them. I know that if you fast for a finding experience the Lord will bless you and lead you to that person who is prepared. He is really preparing the hearts and the minds of many.

Have a great week,

Sister Stacey
