So, what happened this week??? One night we accidentally knocked on the door of a gal who turned out to be an “escort service.” Can I just say it was a bit awkward, and we left rather quickly!
The next night we had the most amazing experience! We had been out contacting and had some good appointments, but then headed over to the church to finish some training we would be presenting the next day. Well, it was about 8:10 p.m. when we arrived and the bishop was there…but he’s never there on Tuesdays. Turns out he felt impressed to go to the church. What he didn’t know was that a non-member man was searching for God, and was led to the church…but the doors were locked. God told him to wait a few minutes then try the other side of the building. He found a car on the other side with a few people inside…it was the Bishop. The two went into the church and spoke together. Bishop started teaching him and just as he was telling him about the missionaries, we walked in. Amazing!
The one time Bishop was there, the one time we happened to go to the church, and the one time this man was guided to go to the church…wow! Bishop introduced us and we had an hour long discussion in the church with Chad, who has been so prepared by the Lord. We never get people like this…who walk into the church and say: “I want to learn more, I want to come to church, and I want to meet with you.” What an incredible blessing this has been!! I am grateful!
The last bit of news is that Elder Wolsey is being released as a zone leader and is transferring to Moncton for the last two transfers of his mission. I’ll be getting Elder Skinner (from Houlton) as a new (old) companion. I’m excited because we worked so well together in Houlton and have so much in common!
That’s all for now.
