The Elders went tracting last week and one of the Elders pointed to a door at the end of the street and said, "In that house will be our new investigators." Every door they knocked on either no one answered or they were not interested. However, when they knocked the door at the end of the street, two girls in their mid 20's, C and D, answered and invited them in. They asked a lot of questions and were really interested in learning more.
The Elders then gave them to us to teach, so we went and taught them the Restoration last Saturday and invited them to come to church. D said that she wanted to go but C was not as interested. D came to church the next day and a member invited her over for family home evening Monday night (we were already scheduled to go to their home for tea). So we went to their home Monday evening and family home evening with D. On Wednesday, we taught her the Plan of Salvation and invited her to be baptized and she said yes! She said that she feels there is something good and right about our church. She recognizes the spirit and is willing to keep the commitments we give her. She's already reading in the Book of Mormon and she is praying. She has no religious background at all so everything we teach is new to her. She came to church yesterday as well and she is progressing so quickly.
I am so excited for her! We called our district leader to tell him that we dated the investigator he gave us for baptism! We called him twice and he said, "What is the emergency?" and Sister Hansen said, "It's a miracle emergency!"
I hope everyone has had as good of a week as the missionaries in Wrekin! I know the church is true!
I love you all!
Love, Sister Christensen
