#76 Noah’s Email - In a Fog
February 20, 2018
Family! How are you all? It's been great to hear from you. I hope all is well. Everything has been going really well here in Huntsville. We've been working super hard and it's just been a riot! We've enjoyed it a lot!
This week Elder Damaso has been a little out of it. He hasn't been feeling very well. Elder Damaso and I were visiting an investigator and we had planned to review the Restoration a little bit and talk about Prayer. As I started the lesson and then turned it over to Elder Damaso, I looked over at him and he was staring off in the distance having no idea what was happening. I kept teaching and after another 2 minutes I came back to him and same thing. The whole entire lesson goes by and Elder Damaso is still out of it because he was so sick. As we finished I turned to him and said, "do you remember anything that happened in there?" he responded, "not a thing..." I sure hope something got across to the investigator because I was the only one that was talking.
This week we drove out to Scottsboro Alabama to do a baptismal interview and that was super good. We had Zone Conference and it was great. Most of the conference was about technology coming to the mission. We will be getting our phones in about 3 weeks so that's going to be a huge change for me. I'm going to be moving away from a paper area book and planner so that's going to be super weird... I don't know how much I'm going to like it but it'll be a good change. We have a mission goal that in the year of 2018 we are going to have 300 baptisms across the mission. So having smartphones is how we are going to get that! We are super excited! #300 #theprophecy
This week we had two exchanges and we were in Birmingham for one of them. The other was here in Huntsville. As we were out contacting, I felt like we should go see a member that lived a few blocks away. She is a recent convert that has both legs amputated. She basically lives in her wheelchair. She is pretty elderly. As we knocked on her door, we heard someone very quietly say, "Come in." As we very gently opened the door she was laying on the floor and couldn't lift herself back into her wheelchair. We jumped in and got her back in her wheelchair. It was another testimony of listening to the promptings of the Spirit. The spirit will give us quiet promptings and we have to be ready to hear them.
Thank you for all you do and the great support you are to me. Y'all are in my prayers. Have a great week!
Strength and Honor
