The Lord was definitely on our side ~ Mission week 38 ~ Lexington week 16

Hello everyone!

I am limited on time, so this will be a short one.

It has been a really good week! We met a new investigator, Francisco, on Wednesday, taught him the first lesson, and he showed up to church on Sunday! Things don't usually work out this easily! I was a little worried, because the gospel principles class topic was a little deep for a first timer. After church, we asked him if had any questions or concerns about his experience. His only concern was that he didn't know how to sing the hymns and that he really wanted to learn how so he could be prepared for next week :) He's seems to be taking things well!

We have found some more great people! One in particular, named Nina (she does speak Spanish!!), really caught my attention this week. We decided to go knocking at some duplexes, and her husband answered the door, we asked him if we could come in and say prayer, as we were talking to him, Nina and her family pulled up to the house. He told us that we would have to ask her if we could (this doesn't usually happen in Hispanic culture, the man of the house always has a say in who comes in first) The Lord was definitely on our side! She told us we could come in, and we had an incredible first lesson with her! During the lesson, she started to cry and told us how grateful she was that came in, and that we came at the exact right time.  Her husband had been very sick and had just gotten out of the hospital. I know we were there for a reason!
