Week 19: Cars & Guitars

The tri-companionship - Elder Joe & Elder Hewitt (in their car!!)

Well this week was not to bad! We gained a new comp! So Monday Was enjoyable we went home and cleaned our place and made it look neat and tidy again. Tuesday was a pretty good day! We had District Meeting and the Zone Leaders came down for it. We got to go on Zone Leader exchange that day. So i went with Elder Beyer! We tracted pretty much the whole day! But we found a ton of Potential Investigators. Tuesday Night we found out we were getting another comp! To join our companionship. So we also found out our area would be combined with Windsor East. So we also inherited a car too! I was so excited because I am the only one in our trio who can drive! Driving to Cambridge was awesome! I love the snowy weather as it reminds me so much of home and its fun to be driving in it. 
We got back late that night and went to drop by Becky. We had an awesome spiritual power house lesson. We talked about the Atonement and Baptism and how her life is going so crazy with so much going on that she needs to rely on Jesus Christ and had a come to Jesus moment. I love 3 Nephi 9: 13-14. " O all ye that are spared because ye were more righteous than they, will ye not now return unto me, and repent of your sins, and be converted, that I may heal you? Yea, verily I say unto you, if ye will come unto me ye shall have eternal life. Behold, mine arm of mercy is extended towards you, and whosoever will come, him will i receive; and blessed are those who come unto me." It was super awesome! Becky was now recommitted to keep the Word of Wisdom. 
We found 11 new investigators this week. They are Eiad, Thereiaz, Joseph, An arabic family that does not know any english haha so 5 of them, Saliem, and Pla! This whole week we have been trying to work two areas! We also were trying to hit standards in both. However we only had Becky at church. Well this past week we actually taught a Muslim women from Dubi! Named Caren. She actually accepted a Baptismal date and said she cannot wait! So we are super excited about that. We also found a family from Liberia. There names are Rose and Hawah. Hawah is super open and super receptive! She wants to come closer to Jesus Christ and be baptized again by the proper authority as she have come to know that the Authority of God is back on the earth today through that Restoration of the Priesthood through Joseph Smith. 
We have been loving having a car in this cold period of time! I love driving in Windsor. We turn on the tunes and jam church style. We also went to go met and teach some friends who were from China. Their names are Jimmy and Stella. They have no religious back ground and do not know if there is a God. So we sat down and talked about God and having the belief in him and his son Jesus Christ. We also taught them about prayer, reading scriptures, and the blessings of it. By the end of the lesson they asked to be baptized and we also had them pray at the end for us.In their prayers they asked God to help them follow him from now and forever. They were so happy after meeting with us and told us to come back again and again! It was so awesome! 
We had a good week. Well have an awesome week! It was fun and exciting and a joy. I love you all and hope you had an awesome week. It is crazy thinking how long I have been out already! My mind has been pre-occupied with a lot this past week but we have work our butts off and helped invite many people to come unto Christ! Well have an awesome week! Talk to you next week!
