This week we had a lot of milagros (miracles)! There were a ton of blessings that came in, and I'm super excited to tell y'all about them!
On Tuesday the Zone Leaders wanted to do a little meeting to discuss the plans that each one of us has as areas. So we had a meeting with everyone for a couple hours. I was a really inspiring meeting and we talked a lot about the vision of the zone and how we are going to accomplish our goals. We now are all on the same page and super excited for these upcoming weeks! Another thing that we did, is one of the STL's Hna McCurdy had the idea for all of us to write down every bad thing that we have ever heard about our areas, or district or zone, and put them on a little piece of paper. After every one was done, we went outside and Elder Atkinson dug a hole in the ground and we all put our negative papers in the hole, and covered it up. We committed as a zone to never again dig up those thoughts. We are as the Anti-Nephi-Lehis as we buried our weapons that would only bring sadness! So overall it was very inspiring, and a great overall meeting! Later that night I gave 3 more baptismal interviews. They were so amazing. There were 3 of them in total. A mom and her two sons! They were so ready. It was pretty crazy how ready they were. Patricia is the mom and while she was bearing her testimony, I could tell, how much she loved this gospel. That was the same with her two sons. It was fantastic!!! It was a great way to end the night!!!
Each day up until Sunday, we worked extremely hard. We had so many solid lessons and it was amazing!!! We pushed the focus of getting people to church so hard!!! We also had a Ward Conference yesterday which brought a lot of the Stake Leaders to our ward, and all the members showed up in our ward! It was incredible! There were so many people there, it was hard to find a seat! We also had 4 investigators come to church. That's the most amount I have had in The Woodlands. We had Irma and Yaderi Deras come to church along with a new family from nuestras clases de ingles, named Hugo and Caty Herrera. Irma and Yaderi loved church. Yaderi has 17 years and she seems like she has the most interest. We are excited to keep working with them, and the blessings they will receive!!! We also taught a very special less active lesson. This member has been through a ton. We really helped this person feel that it's possible to overcome hard things. The spirit was really strong in that lesson, and I know that the Lord brought Elder Barrus and I into this area to help this member. I felt the spirit so strong, and a love that I haven't felt in a long time for an investigator or less active.
What a blessing, that we all have the atonement of Jesus Christ. I love my savior, he has blessed my life and he continues to bless others. I love this work and I am seeing the blessings!
Have a fantastic day everyone!!
Love Elder Heiner
