The second miracle/3rd miracle happened on the morning of the Fourth of July. First we had a church tour with a lady that was interested in learning more. The cousin of the Archuleta family. We gave her a tour while we taught her about the Restoration, Joseph Smith and the Priesthood. She said that when the time comes, she would love to be baptized and have her 2 kids ages 8 and 10 be baptized as well. She was excited to learn more and we set up a time to come over and teach her and her family this week. She truly is searching for the truth and is really going to put forth the effort. It was so neat. The second miracle happened in part because of the first one. We decided to stay at the church to do our weekly planning, which we never stay at the church. We were about to start and then the phone at the church rang. At first I wasn't going to get it but then I felt like I should so I went down the hall and answered. On the other line there was a lady who was frantic. She said her car had broken down and her and her husband didn't know anyone and had been calling around and no one had answered but we had answered. We said we would call her back with information on who could fix her car. There are tons of men in the ward who work on cars, but it was the 4th so one one was in town! Finally we thought of a less-active who worked on cars and asked if he would help. He agreed willing and we went up to the hotel to help them. While the men were working on the car we went and got lunch for his wife and him. We then got to talking to the wife in the hotel room and she told us how much of a miracle we were. She said that that morning she had just been praying and praying for help and the words "Latter-day" kept popping into her head. So she looked in the phone book and found The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She called and knew we would answer, she said when we answered it was like a voice of an angel. We ended up teaching her about the gospel and gave her a Book of Mormon. She said she wanted missionaries to come by in her town, so we got her address and phone # and told her that we would take care of it. The ward was able to help them out by bringing them meals and supplying the hotel for them while everything got fixed. It was such a neat miracle to be a part of. Her heart is truly softened and she is looking for the truth. Miracles happen!!! Such a neat week of learning. I really do love being a part of this work. There are hard times, really hard times, but the miracles make it worth it.
There are so many other experiences that I could write about but I am running out of time. Thank you all for your love and support!! I love each of you!! Pray for Claudia and her family this week!!
