Hello family, Hope everything is going well.
Quick miracle I would like to share with you today is one that touched my heart. To see someones willingness to learn from the word of God. To take of the seed that was planted long ago and nourish it. Just like in Alma 32, The seed of the gospel touches all in their heart.
We met a man this last week named Robert. Robert has had encounters with the church for most of his life. His wife is a member of the church and he has been multiple times. Though some time ago, his wife was offended by a few missionaries and it has been years since they have been to church. We talked with Robert on his doorstep and he lit up when we invited him to church and to read from the Book of Mormon. His wife came out while we were talking and with a little persistence she opened up and told us what had happened in the past. She then looked to Robert who was holding the Book of Mormon and said "Oh, I have one of those, its OK, you don't need to take that one." We butt in and said that it was fine if he kept it and then he spoke up as well and said "I know you have one, but can I keep this one anyways??? I want to read it!".  All I could do was stand there and smile and literally see the desire of his heart. He wants to know its true. I can feel it every time we talk to him.
To see the Word of the Lord truly touch someones life, to see it physically change them, that's why I'm a missionary. That is why I have spent the last 2 years of my life preaching this good news. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored so that we can have it in our day. Our Heavenly Father loves us and desires for us ALL to be happy. I know this is true, no question about it. I love you all and I hope you all have the opportunity to partake of the Goodness that we have been blessed with. We have been given the tools in this life to obtain that which is precious above all.
