I only have time to write one of the many miracles this week: We have been focusing on finding 5 people to invite to learn every day. We invited this one guy to learn and he looked at Sister Herring with the saddest, most urgent eyes and said "Can you save me right now?" Sister Herring explained that WE can't save him because it doesn't work like that, but we can show him the way to secure his eternal salvation. He gave us his address and we set off to find him after church. The address wasn't quite right. We knocked on the door and said "Does Michael live here?" Then he said, "Michael who?" and we didn't know. haha. He gave us directions to the "Michaels" in the area. We went to one of the houses, down this crazy hollah (that means 'hollow' --- generations line little dirt roads in the middle of nowhere). He wasn't home so we traveled all the way down to the end of the hollah where it ended up his parents live. Guess who was visiting his parents? Michael. He was so surprised but we knew that we were supposed to find him that day and that we would. We taught a lesson and put him on date to be baptized on the 27th! WOW!!
Missions are full of ups and downs. But the ups are extreme and they are what you remember. There is no work as happy as this.
