Hello everyone, this week was another one full of miracles! We have been working really hard to help the branch be strengthened. We had 3 families come back to church this Sunday which is awesome!
Yesterday we were out teaching with a member of the Branch Presidency who is from Detroit. After church the Lions were on TV and he was listening/watching it on his phone as we were driving to an appointment. We got to the appointment and he was like hold on give me a minute… The lady we were visiting had a dog who started barking and she came outside so we walked up to the porch. He was still playing the game on his phone as we start talking to this lady, he just turned the volume down. Brother Weathersby is pretty straight up with people so he starts telling her the reason we came by was to get her back to church and that she needed to be there on Sundays. Mid sentence he looks down at his phone and the Lions score a game winning TD, he looks at us and puts his hands up signaling touchdown and continues talking to her hahahaha! Elder Vest and I about died cause he was really sly about it. It was pretty dang funny!
The cool thing that seems to have been a theme this week is the power that the spirit has to bring things to our remembrance.
John14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
We have had multiple experiences with people that may have forgotten their baptism day or the blessings that came to them as they were living the gospel, that were able to remember the special feelings that they had because of the spirit. It like a rushing water comes over them as they remember those memories.
