THE Miracle Week

Hello Hello Hello!
Wow. This past week I'll just call THE miracle week. Seriously I still can't believe all the miracles that happened. Okay so I'll start with the first one. It was monday and we still had some p-day time so we went to EON (huge shopping center) to try to find some stuff for Kapeliela Shimai. We got there later than we had planned so we were hurrying and we walked in the doors and had walked just like a minute and we saw an old investigator! We knew she worked in an EON but we didn't know which one and Mondays are always her break day so that was an even bigger surprise! We all did like a triple take as we walked by each other and then we stopped and we were actually able to talk with her for a little bit before she had to go back to work. It was so crazy. EONS are huge. Like 3 stories tall and tons of different entrances so it's amazing we ran into her.

Next miracle. We were housing on Tuesday night and we had planned to visit a less active member who was on the ward list and so we got to an area near the less active and I was like okay lets go and we started walking to go to their house but after I took a couple steps I got this feeling and had a thought that we should just stay in the area we already were and just do housing. So I asked Kapeliela shimai if she was okay with that and she said ya and so we went about housing. About the 4th house we knocked at this really nice grandpa answered the door and we talked with him for a little bit and then out of nowhere he started speaking fluent english! I'm pretty sure our mouth's both fell open haha. But anyways he invited us in because he wanted to talk with us some more but he was the only one home so we just talked in the doorway for a long time. He told us that he had gone on a tour of America in 1970 with a few other english teachers (he's a retired english teacher) and he remembered visiting Temple Square! What? haha. But ya and he told us to come back whenever we want and right now his wife is in the hospital from a sudden illness but he invited us to come over for a dinner when she gets home! He's a member of the Teine Men's Cooking Club haha. But ya so that was an incredible miracle!

Next. Saturday morning we're doing personal study and the phone rings. I answer it and it's a lady from the area book that I had called and invited to the musical fireside. And before I finish this part let me tell you that we had actually met her at a members cafe. We were eating and she was there and so we talked with her for a while but we never learned her name so I had no idea it was her that I called.
Anyways she called us on Saturday and said thank you for inviting her to the fireside and that she had a great time talking with us in the cafe and that she had a really good feeling then. And then she said that she still has a Book of Mormon from previous missionaries and she wants us to come starting in March and teach her more about it! Okay. Wow. If any of you don't know--- this gospel is true and God truly guides this work. The spirit truly softens hearts and people CAN change. I feel so blessed to be a part of this work and see the Lord working miracles in people's lives!

Love you all!
