Wow, I am so grateful for promptings of the Spirit. And not only the promptings but the strength I have received this last week to follow those promptings. I will just share a few experiences in specific.
We had a return appointment with a Jehovah's Witness and while we were teaching, she was respectful but it was obvious that she wasn't going to budge from her point of view. I was praying in my heart to know what to say to somehow touch her heart. And the thought came to my mind to ask her if she believed if there was only one true church of God. She said that there should be but people are too wicked to accept it. So, I then asked if believed that her church was the true church, and she said that she couldn't say because that was up to God. The feeling then came to testify that there is one true church, that the fullness is found on the earth, and that is was found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I was so scared/nervous to say that.. which is weird because I have never been nervous to teach or testify. I was afraid of what she was going to say because up to this point she had bible bashed everything we had said. However, as a prayed for strength, it was given to me and I testified, with my heart pounding, of the truthfulness and perfectness of this church. And you know what? She still didnt accept it. (anticlimactic, right?) But, I walked away from that lesson knowing that I had followed the Spirit and knowing that I did my part. I knew that Heavenly Father helped me say those words and gave me the strength to follow the Spirit.
Another contact we had, we started off talking about Easter, but I felt that he needed to know about the Book of Mormon. So, our of nowhere, I asked if he has ever heard about the Book of Mormon. He said no, which then lead into a great lesson about the blessing we have to have a guide like the Book of Mormon. He accepted one and asked us to come back to read it with him :)
Following the Spirit has been huge lately, especially because now I am teaching alone in most of the contacts/lessons. It has been a humbling and learning experience for sure.
Conference was great! :) I can't wait to hear what everyone got out of it! :)
I love you all! Have a great week!
