This week we went to try a potential investigator again that we had met a few weeks ago and haven't been able to catch at home. This time she was home and we taught her the restoration in like 5 minutes because that's all the time she had. It was rushed but the Spirit was still there as we taught and testified of Joseph Smith and the First Vision and how the Book of Mormon can help her feel peace and happiness and draw her nearer to God. One of the coolest things to witness is the reaction people have when we recite Joseph's experience of the First Vision. :)
In the next lesson we taught about God's plan of happiness and how we can return to live with Him again. She really liked it and said it helped answer questions she had and that she kept the Book of Mormon in her work bag so if she ever had down time at work she could read it. I love when people are excited to read the Book of Mormon! It really is the best book ever!
On Wednesday we had the ward Halloween party which was a lot of fun! We helped pass out candy during the trunk or treat and got to spend more time with the members. The kids were dressed so cute in their little costumes!
This week we went to a new pizza place that opened up by us and it was pretty pricey but it was so good! I love NY pizza!!
Even though we had a lot of plans fall through this week, it was still a great week! When you are on the Lord's errand everything always works out how its supposed to!
I love New York and feel so privileged to be able to serve here!
When you arrive early for an appt,...ya gotta look around for something to do!
