SO, Yes...Here is a bit of my life up here in Spokane!
I will share with you a miracle of the week. On Friday, Hermana Boman and I put in an hour of finding. We had a goal to find one Spanish Speaker in that hour. We prepared hard and then we went out and worked so very hard. We knocked on so many doors and no one was home! But we talked to everyone we saw and invited people on the street to be Baptized. We asked everyone we met who they knew that spoke Spanish, but we were having no success. So then I just said a quiet prayer that we could find the one! Time went by and we had a meeting to go to so we started walking to the car. Hermana Boman and I still had our eyes peeled for the Spanish Speaker we were looking for. Then when we were about a block away from our car, a man drove by us. We waved and as we waved we realized that he was a Spanish Speaker. We both waved even more excitedly! He didn't stop, he just kept driving down the road and Hermana Boman and I burst out at the same moment saying that we need to talk to him. But he was gone! SO... Hermana Boman said a Faith filled comment that we would see him again one day and he would remember how excitedly we waved at him.
We were then about 10 yards away from our car when a car stopped in the middle of the road and rolled down the window. It was the Spanish Speaking man we had waved at! He had driven for about two minutes and then turned around and decided he needed to talk to us!!! He had stopped in the middle of the road and cars were stopping behind him. After learning that we spoke Spanish too, he pulled off to the side of the road. We got his information and he promised to come to Church!
I love how Heavenly Father answers prayers. Last week Krystal told us how she prayed to find something and then she was able to find it. Isn't it amazing how the Lord helps us? Everyone of us has had this lost and found experience! I know Heavenly Father answers prayers! From a young age and for the rest of our lives, He is ready to help us in any moment of need!
I LOVE YOU ALL!
Keep Praying Always!!
Love, Hermana Phipps
