This week was awesome! We got a lot of new investigators and less actives to teach. We met this small family of 3 at the beginning of the week. We walked up on them in their car. We met Maggie first, she said they had been evicted from their house about 3 months ago and they were living in their car. They both got let go from their jobs and have no family nearby that could help them. Their car broke down right before we met them and they didn't know what to do. They were especially worried about how they were going to take care of their 2 year old son Roman. We gave them a Book of Mormon and talked to them about prayer and how God can help us through tough times. Then we invited them to church and to meet with the Bishop to talk about getting a food order from the storehouse. They have accepted all of our challenges and have started reading the Book of Mormon and came to church for all three hours! After church we introduce Ryan and Maggie to Bishop Zabaldo to get them a food order. We got them some food and got both of them job interviews at the DI later this week! We also have 3 lessons set up with them because they said they were really interested in joining the church! The Gospel truly blesses families and works miracles! It’s only been a little over a week since we first met them and elder packer and I have seen the many blessing flooding in their lives, but so have Ryan and Maggie. I’ll try and to get a Pic with them for next week!
Oh and a lot of you emailed me about the weather alert that they sent out for my area..... we got a text that morning from the mission president that we needed to stay indoors all day but then about an hour later he texted us again and said the storm had changed directions and we could get back to work, so no we didn't get to see any cool natural disasters or anything. We did get 2 extra hours in our apartment that day so we got to explore the apartment a little more, so we got in the attic so see if there was a treasure map like the goonies, but we didn't find anything so that's a bummer!
Anyway that's all I got for this week. I love it here and love seeing the Lord’s hand in everything we do!
Love elder Taysom
