Hey, we had a pretty good week. We've been able to find a couple of families to teach which has been super rare so far on my mission. One of them we found because we had a lesson fall through and then a backup plan fall through so we decided to knock a couple of doors next to the backup plan and the very first one we knocked was this family of 4 that let us right in (3rd time that's happened on my mission) and seemed pretty open to receiving the message. The other family just recently moved here from the Dominican Republic and was found by the Portuguese Elders. The miraculous part about this family is that the apartment they live in is in such a weird place it's a miracle we were able to find it from the address let alone knock into it randomly like the Portuguese Elders did. It's cool seeing the lord place people into our path.
On Friday we had MLC, one of the parts of it was about Alma 17 and Ammon. I love that story, he is such an example of somebody that wants to do there best and is willing to break the mold in order to do it. The Lord commanded the sons of Mosiah to be examples (v.11) and because of the exemplary way in which Ammon conducted himself the Kings heart was softened and an entire nation was converted to the Gospel. Fantastic story.
Sorry I didn't have a ton of time to write this week. We had to help a less active move a piano, it brought back some old memories. I love you! Have a great week!
