3 But this is not all; they had given themselves to much prayer, and fasting; therefore they had the spirit of prophecy, and the spirit of revelation, and when they taught, they taught with power and authority of God.
Its an amazing thing to experience this, teaching with power and authority from god. We taught a lesson yesterday that went very well. The reason it went well was because we had prepared ourselves to be worthy of the spirit, and let him work through us. yesterday we were calling old records in the area book, and we called a man named chun man yeong. he was super excited to meet with us and he met us that night at the church. we talked for a little bit, and then shared our message, which consisted of sharing Alma 34:41 with him and bearing testimony of the power of that scripture. then we declared the spirit which he was feeling to him and the lord justified our words. we then extended the baptismal invitation, which he said he would accept when he knew for a fact that our message was true. it was amazing. we also have another man we will meet with who is the husband of one of the sisters in our ward, who said he would get baptized when his son entered high school. we teach him on saturday and i cannot wait. we should have at least two progressing investigators within a week or two, depending on when we meet with the sisters husband. the spirit we feel every day is amazing. i have grown so much in the last three months it is crazy. We haven't done the rescue activity yet, which if anyone doesn't know is we locate the less actives in the ward, and create a branch activity where the members come and we help them do member missionary work. it is all in an effort to spark their testimony of member missionary work. we presented it in priesthood meeting, and everyone loved it. i can feel the miracles every day, they are amazing. i have also this week developed a love for goal setting and planning. it took about 18 years, but i love it now, and as i have don't that i have learned so much and had a great learning experience. i love this work, i love my savior, and i know he lives.
