July 25, 2016: Miracles

This all started a little after lunch with J. and T.

We kept from being robo-missionaries, talked with as many as possible, and found some awesome potentials. We dropped by an investigators house (E.) and, as it turned out, his mother was locked out due to a broken door handle and he was out of town. We grabbed our other investigator, A., and asked if he could help us out with it. She was very grateful and actually gained an interest in learning. A. offered her a ride on Sunday and it looks like they're both coming. We then met with A. and challenged him to pray. He hasn't believed in God since he was 17 and last prayed at 14. He said afterward he felt a "glow" and said he'd keep praying. C. (another investigator) has had a super busy schedule and is only able to meet with us for short stints. She did let us know, though, that she's been reading the Book of Mormon in small pieces and, as it turns out, a couple of the guys working on her house are returned missionaries and spent some time talking to her and encouraging her in reading and praying. Biking home at 8:40 p.m., we met M. out mowing his lawn. He was married to a Mormon for 20 years and had met with the missionaries. He invited us back at a better (earlier) time.

Yep, we were pretty happy.

It was pretty awesome to have J. out and finally meet T. They're definitely a good pair and I hope he'll be able to come out to Utah and meet you guys sometime, though I imagine that might be difficult with school and construction. Also, Pokémon got them, too. I guess I also realized that I need a few more photos sent home, so I got a few. I imagine J. could tell you better about T., but from what I got, he's got a good sense of humor and a fair amount of sarcasm. Pretty cool all around.
