Fourth Floor, Last Door

Hi everybody! I hope you had an awesome week!  Things are going well in Beaverton! It’s been raining a ton but we had a couple of nice days last week! It was awesome to be able to bike
around without all of the rain gear! It looks like this week is rain everyday though… Yaaaaay…
We had some sweet miracles happen last week! After 13 weeks this ward had an investigator at church! Yay! She is really smart! She already has three masters degrees and is going to BYU this fall to get another one! She seems excited to learn about the gospel though and is very
respective to what we teach!
Another cool thing that happened happened when we went to see a less active member. They weren’t home so we decided to knock some doors in the apartment complex we were in. We found an investigator at the second apartment! His family has been taught by Spanish missionaries before but he said he would like to be taught in English. He seems like a nice guy and it will be awesome to teach him!
This one was my favorite! We were tracting in a different complex. It was pouring rain and no one was even opening their doors. We couldn’t decide if we should leave and try somewhere else or stay. As we were talking President Uchtdorf’s talk, “Fourth Flour, Last Door” came to
our minds. We decided to stay. The next door we knocked on was the first time anyone opened the door! We started talking to the guy and he said that it was crazy that we came by that day. We asked why and he said that he had been raised Christian but had been an atheist for the last few years. Two days before we came he decided that he still did believe in God! How cool is that?! He told us he had been reading the book of Luke for three hours before we came! We invited him to read 3 Nephi 11 and see if the doctrine matched what the Bible said. He was willing and seems excited to learn about the Book of Mormon! It’s crazy to think that if we had gotten discouraged and left early we never would have found that man. We would have felt like the whole thing was a waste of time. I’m glad that the Holy Ghost inspired us to stay and that we both listened.

Let’s each try to listen to the still small voice when it speaks to us. I know that if we do we will always stay on the path that leads back to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
I love you all! Have a great week!
