Missionary Work is the Most Important Thing We Can Do...

Wow this was a great week! The zone is doign super well and i love being zone leader. It is a ton of fun and i love the responsibility. Time is flying though with the hard work. I fell like i was just here emailing last week. Yesterday was the first warm day in a long time. Probably Since i first got to Bruxelles, haha. It was hot!

You asked what my most memorable moment this week was...hahahaha, well there were these two hobo guys. An asian one sitting on a bench drinking a beer and then his friend. The friend was yelling at him and then turned around and shook his butt in the asian guys face hahaha. Then he turned to a crowd of people at the tram stop and dropped his pants... i saw too much haha. But it was so funny. We had a member with us from tahiti and he was dying. Yup... Paris is great.

I am doing well and am happy. Things are going so well! So on to this past week. Monday we went to the top of the eiffel tower... well as far as stairs would let us haha. It was over 800 stairs. Woot! Then on tuesday we gave a training for the zone which went pretty well. It was fun. We had a rdv with a cool lady named nadage that we found. She invited a friend over too. They are from the ivory coast. Then we had a rdv with marino. He is doing really well. We saw him another time this week too. He is praying for his answer. In our other rdv with him he had a friend over who thought that we were just weird cult polygamists. So he was questioning us. But marino defended us and taught his friend about the restoration and the bom. And he was like these guys are normal. Elder Webber likes the rapper drake and Elder Thomas plays football! haha It was funny.
On wednesday we planned a spiritual finding day. We fasted all day and prayed a ton throughout the day. And we saw so many amazing things! we prayed and fasted that we would be guided to the people that are ready to be baptized. So in the morning we were contacting and we talked to an indian looking guy. He said we could teach him in a nearby park. So we went and he is so legit! His name is xavior and he is from sri lanka. He believes in God but didnt know where to find the truth. He told us he thinks that we were sent by God to answer his prayers. We told him what we were doing that day and testified that we are called of God to help him. We saw him several times this week and he came to church. He lost his whole family in sri lanka and has nobody here. He is super poor too. But we have seen light come into his eyes this week. It has been an amazing change. He also recieved the answer to his prayer that this church is true and said he feels great when he is with us and feels peace. We invited him to be baptized on the 27th of april and he accepted. So awesome! Then later that day we were contacting with a member and we contacted a young girl... turns out she is 29. But she was super happy to see us and told us that she is searching for God in her life. We fixed a rdv with her and when we taught her she said she knows that God sent us to her. Amazing! She is super interested and just searching for the truth. She came to church and loved it. The members welcomed her so well. We also found a lady and her sister from Ecuador. They speak almst only spanish. But they are interested and we bring a member to translate. It was an amazing week!

I know that prayer and fasting works. God hears our prayers and loves us so much. I know that this church is true. No doubt. Missionary work is the most important thing that we can do. It can also bring us the most joy. I love you guys so much. Know that i love you and miss you tons. keep going strong and dont forget to pray!
