Double Dinners

This last week was really great there are a lot of good things happening in this area. On tuesday we taught an older man, Ed, who had a lot of great questions about the gospel and life after death. It was an interesting lesson, really a question and answer session, but that was great we didn't have to worry about what we were going to teach next, because he would just ask us about it. We taught him the whole plan of salvation that way and gave a book of mormon to read. By the end of the lesson he was asking questions like "how does one get baptized in the mormon church?". He plays the organ and said that he has one of our hymnals and really likes the songs inside. Hopefully this ward will have a new organist in the future.
Later in the week we met Nicole, she was in our area book and there was no information about her. When we knocked on her door she was a little confused on why we knew her name, but we explained it to her and taught about the book of mormon. In the middle of the lesson she smiled and said she feels a "warm stirring" in her chest when she talks with us. We were so excited to hear that! We shared a verse in Alma 32 with her and she was really excited to have a book of mormon. She also told us that it wasn't a coincidence that we had come tonight. She wouldn't tell us why, but it feels good to know that we are being led by the Lord. She was leaving out of town for christmas the next day, so we only just barely caught her so unfortunately we won't teach her until January. That was one lesson that I won't forget, the spirit was there and I hopefully made a difference in her life.
Then yesterday we had two investigators at church. Chris and Katherine are 15 and 16 and their mom is a less active member. They came to church and really liked it, the ward did a really good job of making them feel welcome and it turns out that some of the youth knew them already which is great. They both plan on going to the skating activity and later that day we taught them a quick lesson then they fed us dinner which was great. We then proceeded to go to our planned dinner appointment, so I was full that night.
So everything is going great here I love my companion he is great. Thank you for the letters and packages. I love you all
