This week has been a really good week. First off, the weather was beautiful. It was in the 50's-60's and sunny.
We had a few lessons that really stood out this week. One of them was to a Catholic lady who is always kind and welcoming to the missionaries. She was taught a couple of lessons almost a year ago and then we decided to go back this week and see how she was doing. We were able to set up a time to meet with her on Saturday.
When Saturday came we had planned to teach her about the Restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ. We weren't exactly sure how this lesson would go. We were able to go in there and teach her at her level of understanding. She has such amazing faith. She knows that God is there and that he has saved her life many times. It was amazing to hear her testimony and for us to be able to testify that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and that he had the same question that she had, "Why are there so many churches?" We were able to share his experience and talk about why prophets are so important. We were able to share our testimonies of the truth of the Book of Mormon. It was a sweet experience. Heavenly Father loves all of his children so much.
We also had a zone conference this week with President Y. One of the things that stood out to me in this meeting was when he talked about all of the different ways we can use prayers. We can teach investigators about prayer and invite them to pray right then. We can invite members to pray for missionary opportunities as well as pray for a specific street the missionaries can tract on. And the one that stood out to me was to pray with people while we go tracting or visiting. We have made a special effort to pray with those people whose doors we knock on or visit with. It brings the spirit in a special way. I have seen many of the people we have prayed with who are touched by the prayers. I am excited to see the results of these prayers.
Well, I love you all so much! Thank you for all of the good you do in the world. Love you! Love, Sister Cluff
