Sending people into OUR paths

hey mom! this is my new email address! the whole system just changed and i had to get a new account, so get this on the blog asap.
....onnnnnnnn to the week

So, things have been going pretty awesomely recently. we have really started to figure out what it means to be a representative to the Lord, what it means to call the people to repentance. Our purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ, to show them the way back to our Heavenly Father...and this is done only through the gospel of Christ, which is faith, repentance, BAPTISM, receive the gift of the holy ghost, and endure til the end. So, before I was already inviting people to be baptized in first lesson and whatnot, but now we have started to invite people to be baptized even in street contacts, testifying that every man must be baptized to enter the kingdom of God (John 3;5). it is CRAZY how inviting just brings the spirit. We do really need to be bold to do the Lord's work. Because of this new realization, we have been having a lot more success and feeling a lot more the presence of the Holy Ghost. It is sweet. Also, because of this, the Lord has been sending people into OUR paths. Literally, we have been stopped in the street tons recently by people asking for us to go by their homes to learn more. sooo cool.

We are still having a super good companionship. yesterday was cool too, as we did a division with the assistents to the president. Just lots of good stuff happened.We found some awesome new families to teach that are interested in knowing for themselves whether the gospel is true or not. Also, a lady that we have been reactivating has been able to quit smoking! Huge miracle. It is just what all the elders just start figuring out how to do missionary work once you are already getting ready to go home.
