This past week has been one full of miracles. When I was first moved to Torcy this transfer, not only to be a zone leader, but to help build a chinese missionary team here, it was pretty hard. We did lots and lots and lots of contacting. We talked to everyone that we could, on the train, on the bus, on the street, on our way to appointments. We really tried to seize every single opportunity to teach and find those who are looking for the restored gospel. Though it was not easy, I can honestly say that I grown to be able to talk to just about anyone. Two weeks ago, Elder Coulombe and I met a Chinese mother, Sister Gao as we call her, and her young son. We were in the process of teaching the Plan of Salvation to 2 young men who were handing out free Bibles. Well, we set an appointment with Sister Gao to teach her the next day. Initially, we were under the impression that she only wanted to learn to speak English from us, because she was really happy when we spoke to her in English when we first contacted her. It turned out that she was not only interested in hearing the message we had, but was so interested she did not even want us to teach her English. Well, this week, we set a baptismal date for this coming sunday, which she was more than ready to receive.
I have learnt from this experience that once again, when there is a will, there is way, and even more than that, when we are doing our Heavenly Father’s will, there is most definitely a way to accomplish it.
Have a great week ahead! The Book of Mormon is the word of God and the Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only church that has the fulness of the gospel.
