Reflections of Christ
We had a cool lesson this week with two of our investigators. On Saturday we taught the Abplanalps (pronounced Apple-naps). They are the older couple we tracted into who let us in and fed us lunch about a month ago. We meet with them every Saturday. We were frustrated last week after the lesson. They are intellectual and love learning about the Book of Mormon and our religion but they werent applying it to themselves. This week we had a break through. We taught them the Gospel of Jesus Christ (lesson 3). I talked about the Holy Ghost and explained who he is, his purpose, and how we can receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Sister Wilks then told the story about how we tracted into the Abplanalps. She told them how we had been tracting for quite some time and had no success. The car was parked near Abplanalps' house and we almost passed them up. But we followed the spirit and knocked on their door. As she told this story Jocelynn started to cry. She felt the spirit! It was AWESOME! Then we asked them, if they came to know that the things we've taught them are true, would they be prepared to be baptized by someone holding the proper authority. They said "Sure!" It was amazing and Im excited for them. They've made the connection and know that this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ! :)
Well I have to go now. Hope everything is going well! I love all of you!
Love Sister Kingston
P.S. Just wanted to say a quick thank you to Jaycee for giving me referrals! I was able to get a hold of one of her friends and she accepted to have the dvd "Finding Faith in Christ" delivered by the missionaries! Oh and Auntie Leslie thank you too! I called your friend Kaye. She's having the dvd sent to her through the mail, so no missionary visit...yet. Youve planted the seed though! :)
