So on Thursday Elder Child and I wanted to put this new way of finding to the test! We were out contacting in Columbus, and we both felt impressed to go down this road. I didn't think we were going to find anything on this road, because I had gone down it many times looking for places to knock, but nothing seemed good! But this time when we went down this road, we both saw a trailer park that was not too far off the main road, THAT WE HAD NEVER SEEN BEFORE! So we started to knock it! Our 3rd door a man (named Jarrod) opens up, and Elder Child put the idea to the test and asked him, hey can we share this message with you RIGHT NOW! The guy then said, oh sure let me go put a shirt on first! We were like, NO WAY😯! He comes back and we got into a great discussion! He has been looking for the gospel all his life, but can't find the right church! He told us that his wife helps understand the gospel, but it just doesn't seem right to him! When we finished, we set something up for Saturday!
So Saturday comes around and first conference was amazing! But then we had one of the best lessons I have ever had! When we got there Jarrod's whole family was just waiting for us to come in! As we sat down Jarrod tells us that his family had a miracle right after he got done talking to us. He has been looking for a job, and he said he got a phone call for a job opportunity right out of the blue, literally right after he talked to us! #MILAGROS! (Miracles) So the family (which consists of a mom and a dad, a 15 year old daughter, 12 year old son, and an 8 year old daughter) already loves us it felt like, and we started teaching the Restoration and hey just devoured it! They understood it so well! They are Golden👍! At the end of the lesson Jarrod said, you know if the Book of Mormon is true, I'm moving to Utah, haha😆! All 5 of them were so solid, and want to learn more!
Then there was conference! I loved conference, and it taught me so much about what I need to do to be a better person, brother, son, friend, and missionary! Here are some of my favorite quotes: Dieter F. Uchtdorf said, God offered us the opportunity to be here and we chose it. So what shall we give in return for so much!! Dean M Davies said, if we fail to worship our God we will be missing a lot of the joy we could be receiving!
Pretty incredible! I loved conference and hope y'all loved it as well! Thanks for all the prayers y'all! Thank you for all y'all are doing to help people find more happiness! Keep it up! Find those miracles and keep trusting, believing and working with our savior! I love y'all so much! Have a great week!
Love, Elder Heiner
