This Is LOB City

Love & Obedience = Baptisms

So, I'm in my new area.
New zone.
New companion.
New people.

This is LOB City.
 This zone is a special place.

Hermana Hafen, is my new companion. She's from St. George, Ut. and she is practically perfect in every way. I'm not kidding. She is extremely Christlike and I cannot wait to learn from her. It's only her 2nd transfer in the mission, but she seems as if she's been out forever. She is wonderful.
We work with Elder Cagle and Elder Felt. Elder Felt is fresh out of the missionary training center and Elder Cagle is new to the area too. They are GREAT elders and I'm super stoked to work with them! 

In the month of January, our zone had a goal to find 132 new investigators. Although I wasn't here to witness all the miracle finding for most of the month, I arrived here with just 4 days left in the month. We still had a ways to go to accomplish the goal, and Hermana Hafen and I have been in charge of keeping track of how many investigators have been found and updating the zone through text messages about our progress. We told the zone that if we reached our goal, they could throw a pie in ours and the Zone Leaders faces at the next Zone Meeting. That lit us up a little!

Yesterday, the last day of January, we started off the day needing 10 more to accomplish our goal. Everyone went out and worked hard, and by the time 8:30 rolled around, we only needed 6 more. Hermana Hafen and I had been going around to visit potential investigators all day, but had no luck... We decided to go by Joselyn's (an adorable Recent Convert from Guatemala who is preparing for a mission!). None of her family are members of the church. We shared a message about the Book of Mormon with her mom, and she agreed to taking the missionary discussions!

We only needed FIVE more.

It was 9:15 and we sent out a text to the zone, announcing we only had 15 minutes to find five more investigators... Then, A MIRACLE HAPPENED!

Hermana Hafen and I were prompted to stop by a home that we had already visited twice that day, but they hadn't answered. They were a potential family from Guatemala. We prayed REALLY hard, and knocked one last time.

At 9:15 they answered the door and let us in.
We entered, taught them how to pray, invited them to hear our message and set up a return appointment. The entire family.
Five of them!

We immediately prayed to thank the Lord for blessing us with the faith to knock one more time and to witness a MIRACLE. His hand is ever present. He is truly with his missionaries, and I am a personal witness of that.
We are teaching a family here, Alexis, Lesbia and Daniel, and we set a baptismal date with them last night. They are preparing to be baptized on February 21st. This is a great area. I am following in the footsteps of some fantastic missionaries and I feel so blessed serve.
I love the Lord.
