There is nothing better than being the Lord's servant! He truly controls this work, and when we follow and accept his will everything works out! So this week being transfer week, here's what happened:
Monday- We had a pretty normal day till about 7pm when we got the call from Elder Cleverly that Elder Johnson would be transferred and I would be staying!!
Tuesday- The weather was crazy!! Pouring buckets and buckets on us. It got to the point where we looked at ourselves and thought "who would let us in their home like this?" But the Lord's work doesn't stop just because weather so we worked with it.
Wednesday- Was our P-day this week. Elder Johnson finished packing and saying goodbye to the people he had grown close to here in Perry
Thursday- We woke up at 5:30 and headed to Iowa City with a member here in Perry. It is about a 2 and a half hour drive to Iowa City. I received my new companion Elder Gregor. He has been out for 21 months and is from Riverside CA. After transfer meeting we headed back to Perry and I introduced C to Elder Gregor. We are so excited for C!!!! He is progressing a lot in the gospel and has come to church for 5 Sundays in a row
Friday- We had district meeting in Ankeny. Then we taught Deb Anderson with the English Elders here and handed her over to the English elders here. After that lesson we taught C about the Law of Chastity. It went amazing!! We knew that he had an inappropriate poster in his room so we brought a picture of Christ with us to the lesson and after the lesson invited him to take down the picture and put up the picture of Christ. He did it, and while sitting there talking with us he just started to rip the poster up!!
Saturday- We taught M and his wife in the afternoon with Jaime. Then I taught J by myself for the first time without Elder Johnson!!! (John is deaf and doesn't know English). Then to wrap up the night Jaime came out with us again and we taught the Melgar family.
Sunday- Church was great and afterward we taught C about general conference and the prophet.
This week has been crazy and it is hard to put in words. I know I am truly doing the Lord's work.
Many people say they will know Christ by the nail prints in His hands and the spear wound in His side. But if we truly know Christ, we will know Him because we are instruments in his Hands. What an amazing time to serve the Lord!!!
