Week 69 - This week was purrrrrfect!!!!
As the winter is marching towards us, we truly appreciate the 40 and 50 degree days!!
The work is going extremely well here! Most days it is hard to get everything done we need to, but we try our best.
This week we were blessed to have many opportunities to share the Gospel and invite people to act.
On Wednesday I got to go on exchanges with Elder Z. We had a great exchange and got to meet and teach an amazing Swahili family who are originally from Congo. A and C, and their 3 kids.
On Friday we had the privilege of having Zone Training meeting. The assistants gave a very inspired training as well as our Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders. After we also met E! A Hispanic single mother with 4 kids. We taught her the Restoration as well and shared the blessing that the gospel brings to families.
On Sunday we finally got in with a family we have been trying to teach for a long time and we brought R with us. R is a member here in the 4th ward, and he knows the family very well. I don't know if the lesson could have gone better! He helped them understand things and explain things in a way that really helped them. As we teach this family we have the end goal in mind that one day they will be sealed in the temple!!
I know this gospel brings people together!! And I know that without it I would be lost.
Those were just some highlight of our week here in Iowa City 4th ward!
