We got transfer calls this week and we are both staying! I am so happy because we finally started to see some miracles over here in Rochester East.
The miracle of this week is Andrea. The LO elders had a baptismand we really wanted to go. Well actually we wanted to go to the one of Ashley Putnam in Flint because I taught her but that was a vain desire because it was all about me wanting to get to the baptism. The moment we changed our thinking from I want to get to a baptism to who could benefit from seeing a baptism the miracles started happening. We didn't have anyone coming morning and felt prompted to go to a certain neighborhood and walk around. Which we never do! We were praying in our hearts that people would be out, and they were we were able to talk to a lot of people in a short amount of time but still no one wanted to come to the baptism. Well at about 12 we drove over to the church and decided to park there and walk around. We were walking on the trail across from the church and talked to 2 more people. both not interested. Now its about and we are almost ready to give up. I thought about calling Andrea and inviting her even though when we invited her to the one in Flint she said no. But this one was a lot closer so maybe she would say yes. Well she didn't answer so we walked back to the car feeling upset. Literally right as I put the car in reverse to back out and go home, Andrea calls. I put the car in park so quick and answered. She sounded so excited to go to the baptism but it was already so she was going to be late but we said that didn't matter. Anyway she walked in right as we were going into the room with the font to watch Shane be baptized. She loved it and said that she felt peaceful there. We watched the restoration as he was getting ready and weren't able to finish it because he was too fast. Well we dropped her off a copy for her birthday yesterday and she was so excited about it. We were able to give her a church tour after the baptism and she is excited to do her family history on today. This showed me that God is so so so good! He is willing to help us the moment we begin to turn outward and focus on others. I love the gospel so much!
