Man so much goodness happened this week. I don't even know where to begin. This week we have officially given out at least 3000 cards this transfer. THAT IS A LOT OF CARDS. But even more, that is a lot of people that we have talked to. We have so much fun; three sisters moving always at a fast pace, in and out of the subway, singing as we go, handing cards to everyone and telling everyone God loves them.
At the beginning of the week A* called us. We had given him a card in the elevator and we are now teaching him! We have taught him 3 times and he came to church and we are seeing him again tonight. :) He is a tall black man, with huge hands. He wore an olive green suit to church, and a black bowler hat. It was awesome.
Also, M* called us. She said, "Is this the sister missionaries? Two sisters talked to me on the subway and they were soooo niceeeee. I've had Jehovah's Witnesses over before but I feel like I have finally found what I'm looking for. Can I come to church?" Then she came to church. She was all dressed in pink with and orange cross around her neck and just ecstatic to be so loved and welcomed on Sunday. It was lovely. At the end of church she said, I work every Sunday but I'm going to reschedule my job so I can come every Sunday. See you next week! It was awesome.
Also, W* called us. He said, "I am the man who you talked to while you were walking on Dundas street. Me and my 19 year old daughter looked up your church and you seem legit. We want to come." Well we met with him. He is awesome. We are meeting him again on Wednesday and Friday!
Sunday morning we decided to go to church early to practice the musical number we would be doing. So we got on the subway and went up to take the bus, but the bus was on a different schedule because it was Easter. So while we waited we all sang a ton of hymns in the subway. People started to gather round. And when we would stop, people would ask us to continue. So we did. And we LOVED it. :) Then this girl named N* came up to us and said, "Do you guys need a ride somewhere? I believe in Christ and I can tell you guys are sent from Him. I just wanna help you all out." Then she paid for a Uber ride to church. She was so kind. I love her. :)
We taught an investigator named J* this week who says she now believes in God! The elders had taught her 3 times and then passed her off to us so we have been meeting with her. She is awesome. And in our lessons she said, "So Sisters I have decided to quit smoking...It just seems right." We haven't even taught the Word of Wisdom yet.
We also met with a lady named C*. She is a very hard core mom...haha I don't know how else to explain her. She is black, and very passionate and intense. We brought this old man named Brother M* with us who is from Egypt. His back is stooped and he has these massive hands and this wispy white hair and when he preaches he shakes his finger. But he was EXACTLY the member she needed. She came to just LOVE brother M*. She agreed to come to church this week. It was such a spirit filled lesson. If brother M* hadn't been there, I don't know what we would have done.
Finally, my favorite lesson this week was with a family named the K* Family. They are all from India and have been members of the church for many years. Brother K* was a bishop and Sister K* is such a loving mother. But their sons have a hard time with the concept of God and as a result have rebelled a little bit. She is so broken hearted about it. We have been trying to get a hold of them but haven't been able to and finally on Easter we just dropped by. We taught a lesson on God and Jesus Christ. I don't even know how to describe it; it was only a 15 minute lesson, but I have never felt the Spirit so strong in my life. They all agreed to meet with us again on Wednesday and Sunday. I love the K*.
Well all, I know Christ lives. I know it. I really do.
Also we are getting a car.
I love you all!
