June 15, 2016 Crazy Week!

So since last Tuesday we have had some awesome spiritual experiences and some crazy surprises. On Wednesday our zone along with two others got to have a zone conference with Elder Bennett of the 70. He's super cool.  He served a mission in France and then served as a mission president in Russia. We learned so much about how to be better, consecrated missionaries.

During that meeting an emergency transfer happened in our zone so Elder Gallardo and I had another companion, Elder Gonzalez, for a few days until Saturday night when we got word that they were going to move the Spanish Elders that night from Norwalk Connecticut to be Elder Gonzalez's companions in the Yorktown ward. So it was an
interesting night figuring that out because the Elders that were moving also had a baptism that night. On Friday we had MLC with Elder Bennett, which was basically a review from the zone conferences. It was great seeing what everybody learned and how we can apply it to our work.

Our area is starting to see some great potential. We are finding super well and have a super awesome progressing investigator who has some weird problems that are delaying his baptism, but it'll come. We had an awesome miracle yesterday. We were driving down the road after a failed attempt to contact an investigator when we saw a man sitting in front of his house. We had the impression that he was sad about something and that we needed to go talk to him. After fighting off Satan for a second and finally choosing to follow he prompting we circled back, got out of the car and went to talk to him. We had a great contact focused on God being our loving Heavenly Father and when we asked him what we could pray about with him before we leave, he asked if we could pray for him because he's been depressed recently.   

Have a great week! Thanks for the notes Bros! Your two are way cooler than I ever was! Thanks for the notes Kevan & Bryan you're awesome! I love you Dad, Happy Father's Day!  I love you Mom!

Con Amor,
Elder Sam McBride
