Hey Friends and Family!
February 22: Today we were knocking in what turned out to be a pretty sketchy neighborhood but God is the best protector. We had been one street over and praying to know what street we should knock on and decided to knock one over. As we were knocking doors we got invited in to two different homes and spent like 20ish minutes talking to each of them about the gospel. One of the families told us that on the street right next to them (the one we were originally going to knock) was really sketchy and had a bunch of kids who had jumped an old man the week before. They told us we really shouldn't have been knocking in that area at night. Wow though, God really does love and protect his missionaries.
February 23: Today was a really rough day and all of our plans fell through and we were asking God to really just help us have a good day. We had the thought to go talk to people in this nearby park, so we plugged it into our GPS and drove to the very end of Prince Park. Well at the very last parking lot away from all other people was John and Miriam whose car battery had died. They asked us if we had any jumper cables, we did not, so we told them we would find someone who had cables. Well we found someone! As we drove up with Juan, our nice Samaritan, to jump start this car it was so cool, John told us that when he saw us drive up he knew the cavalry had come. It really was a neat experience to be where God needed us to be and also that God had truly provided a tender mercy for us.
February 24: While knocking today we met a lady named Debbie down in Boca Raton. I felt really bad because as traveling missionaries we cover the entire county of Palm Beach and I do not have all of the building addresses and meeting times memorized and so I didn't have the church information to invite this lady to church. However, it turns out that missionaries over a year ago had invited her to church and she had never been able to go, but she had kept the card which had the church address and meeting time. It was a sign to her that she really did need to come visit and she said she was going to come this Sunday.
February 25: Today we got to teach Shawn who the elders found and passed to us. It was so cool we taught him a 20 minute Plan of Salvation discussion and set him with a baptismal date for March 12th. It truly brings me so much joy to watch people love and except the gospel.
February 26: Super funny as we were driving in Lake Worth today this guy pulled up next to us on the road and rolled his window down and motioned us to roll ours down. There in the middle of the road the guy asked us where we got our bike rack hitch because he wanted to get one like ours. We explained we didn't know it was a mission car. It was just so funny though, and I'm glad there were no cars behind us because the light had turned green.
February 27: Today was truly just an amazing experience of being in the right place where God needed us. God truly has perfect timing.
February 28: Shawn came to church and absolutely loved it. Watching him after church it seems like he has been here for years instead of just his first time. Also both of the less actives we've been working with came today!! Also my former investigator came to church and told us she wants to meet with us again and even set up an appointment with a member so that we can teach her. Also an investigator for us came to church at an earlier time. Today was a miracle from God and I am so thankful to him for it.
Well love you all!!
P.S. We went to Burger Fi for p-day
A Florida sunset. Man I will never get sick of views like this.
